Over the past few years I have been falling deeper and deeper in love with Teardrop trailers. I have a friend that built one, and I saw a couple at Pietenpol Fly-In in Brodhead, Wisconsin last July.
I was hooked.
So I started researching plans so I could find the shape that I loved, and find something within my skill level. Finally I decided to buy plans from Big Woody Campers. When the plans arrived I was sure I could make this camper. Then I started stalking the BigwoodyCamper.com website
They had so many kits on the site that took a lot of the guess work out of the process, they even had a wood kit.
The website indicated that shipping was not available for the woodkit..... you think that is going to stop me? Heck no! I called Jennifer at Big Woody, and talked to her at length. So we came up with a plan, and I was the first customer that she shipped a wood kit. So in August 2014 I began the process!
We had it shipped to the local FEDEX terminal, and I picked it up there (it saved me a ton on shipping)
I also started laying out blue tape to get an idea of how I wanted to lay out my galley.
Now all I needed was time, and I was not going to get any of that until Marching band season was over. In my spare time, I drew out my galley, over and over to find the perfect layout for me, and I started shopping for supplies.
