What it cost me to build my own camper & how long it took me

I built a small camper that measures 6' wide x 9' long and is 5' tall. Though I can't stand fully upright in it, I wanted a lower profile camper for fuel economy and to load my canoe uptop. I started with a next to new heavy duty utility trailer that I purchased locally from Craigslist for $300.00. The trailer is a 5' x 8' trailer. I built the floor and camper shell out of 3/4" plywood and used 2x3" cross members for the roof which I covered with luon before the Aluminum went on. I used…

Just concerned whatever clips I tried to install would rip right out...can you advise what type of clip...or did you have to re-inforce the roof location where they got installed?  I've heard about some anti-sway bar/device...guess I wanted to hear from others with small trailers that have dealt with that.  Thanks!

Kevin, like any business, it take a well thought out business plan and a lot of hard work to make money.  Building / restoring trailers is no different, it also has a seasonal component to factor in.  Good luck!
