That is nice. Post some interior/kitchen shots when you can.
Here is a teaser Ron. I need to take more pics of the galley and inside the cabin. They will come later.
Lets see the little black box on the left side is the AC/DC converter. On the right side there is a pull out shelf which can hold my coleman stove. Under this shelf is another pullout drawer which can hold bulk items. That brown box on the right side of the main counter holds my silverware drawer which pulls out to the side. The cooler pulls out for opening. I have yet to decide where everything will ride during transit. I also plan on adding a small table which will attach to the side of the trailer.
I will be selling tickets Ron. Meanwhile here are a few more shots of the galley and the interior.
Nicely done Mike. Very impressive!
Ok, if you go to camp-cook.com I do believe they have a sister link to a teardrop trailer site. I know alot of the people on there have them. Can't find the other site. It has a TON of them on there, but can't seem to find it.
Nice work Mike, great hatch back, slide out stove table and very good interior finishing. You should be spending a lot of nights between fishing outings in that baby. What does the misses think?
Ed the wife says no potty, no go. :} Jerry this may be the web site you are refering to. You can find my build thread under "fishfinder" http://www.mikenchell.com/forums/ This is a best site I ever found for TD builds and information.
Yup, that's it. It's the sister site to camp cook and tearjerkers.
Is the construction plywood? Looks like maybe rigid foam sandwich?
Mike, did you think about raising the mattress off the floor? Seems like it might give better insulation as well as provide a storage area.
Let's see. Yes it is built out of plywood. The floor is 1/2 inch plywood. The right and left sides are 3/4" A/C plywood. The front and top is a sandwich constrution. Luan + 1x2" spars + luan. The spars are spaced 10" apart. Foam insulation is placed between each spar.
The underside of the floor is covered with asphalt paint to act as an undercoating. I placed a indoor/outdoor carpet on the floor below the matress. I had considered a raised platform and dismissed it. Instead I built a 12x12x5' box to hold some of my gear.
Any builder could design their TD to their own specs
How wide is it Mike? Four feet? or a little more. 8 feet length also? Nice job.
That is some very nice work; love the Galley, sliding stove set-up. Serious Fish Bum set-up!
4 x 8 in order to use standard materials.
I ran across this thread and thought it was a pretty sharp idea. Someone really put a good deal of thought/labor into this.
Be sure to click on the link to the pics. Impressive.
