Build it and they will come.
I just placed my order for the Axle and springs for my new summer project. This summer I will be building my first Tear Drop trailer from the ground up.  I'll be making a 6'x10' frame out of 2"x3" rectangular tubing. It will include a 6'x9' 6" high storage below the main cabin.  Inside finish will be a log cabin décor. AC/heat, tunes, 120 volt and 12 volt,  10 gallons of water with a sink .I'll post updates as I go. Once done stand back take some pictures and sell it.

I had to chuckle when you mentioned you will have to remove the axles and wheels to get it out of the garage,,,, My brother built a small Bi-Plane in the basement of his house in Michigan,, and then after it was built,he realized he would have to dissasemble it to get it out... lol.

I'm bushed. Busy weekend with the teardrop. I got the sides some what the way I want them. I found out the 3/4" treated plywood is heavier then regular plywood. I had to remove the wheel to make the trailer fit in the garage with the door up. I also found out to someday get the trailer out of the garage I will have to remove the springs and front jack to get it out of the garage.

The frame is built and has it first coat of primer. I'll be picking up some treated plywood this weekend to start working on the sides. I'll post as I go.

Better take along a designated payer, your likely to suffer emptywalititice before you leave a place like that.

My Axle came into day. I found a boneyard in Michigan on RT 127 just north of Ohio. Tri-State Surplus, nice thing is they have new and used at good price. Going to making a run up there very shortly for my windows, door, trim and all the things I'm forgetting about or don't know I need.

This one is going up for sale as soon as I'm done with it. Don't plan on using it, I have a hard enough time walking in the GTAL. :)

Like Ford Motor co. did to the GT-40 back in the 60's so Dan Gurney could drive it, you'll have to put a Gurney hump in the top to clear that hat. LOL
