Yeah lots of them up here.
I have also seen those landscape trailers converted to a camper as well.
Wonder if the landscape trailer has heavy duty enough suspension for the added weight?
I guess because it looked like the guy only had a bed a few cabinets and a small table in it.
Most of them- even the 5' x 8' ones- have a 3500# axle, if they were built in the last 10 yrs.
(Eldest Son is in the landscape business = only reason I know diddly about it!)
H E L L you probadly have a RN camper "G".
It is not as sophisticated as what you are proposing, but I think this utility trailer that transforms into a camping tent is pretty cool.
yeah; howja know?
it's a 1995 Nomad Skyliner 32'.
No I meant a RN converted from something else type camper. Nothing weird with a regular started out that way one.
Got wunna those,too,vegassprky....exactly like this:
With this attached, for storage:
And topped with this,for shelter:
Would call that tent camping "G", not red necky at all. I mean this type http://www.keithwhite.us/redneck.html
Yeah I agree. He had a cup holder on that thing. Thats not too shabby
Pretty nice set up!
Mentioned this build-your-own-camper thread to my 2 B'rers last night....they know a retired carpenter who made his "fishing camper" out of a 3/4 ton utility bed. He gave $950 for the utility bed still mounted on part of the truck frame, with the rear suspension, axle, wheels & tires. He V-notched the frame rails, pulled them together, and welded on a bumper hitch.
He put a $125 long-wheelbase camper top on it for a roof + ventilation from the sliding windows, sealed it against water, and had a friend w/ a plasma cutter cut openings from inside so he could reach into the 'toolboxes' along each side from inside the 'camper'.
He told them he used "windshield gasket material from Central Tractor" to cover the sharp edges of the inside openings.
His 110V a/c was mounted in the front camper window, where the cab pass-thru useta be.
His 110V 'milkhouse heater' was bolted to the front bulkhead.
He had pulled it "several thousand miles",he told them, and was gonna give it to his son.
Was gonna build another one on a 1/2 ton utility bed/ frame, and insulate it, for fishing Canada.
Somebody built my rig!
RacerX that just a neat set up!
Hey Rubber. Did you ever finish this project?
Negative sir. However, I have since collected a ton of ideas to implement as well as gotten a bit of the stuff I will need.
The mission continues.
Sent from my ridiculously large Galaxy Note 2.
Man, I would think you could build way cheaper than you could buy. I don't really know, but $10,000+ for the trailer in RacerX's post (post #34) just seem extreme. Now, if I was in the market for something like this and had the funds to spend......I'd probably buy one.
Not small, but definitely blows away sleeping on the ground!!!
I might move to Australia just for this:
