Teardrop Trailer!!

So if you don’t quite know by now, I’m engaged to a very lovely lady who will occasionally make appearances on my blog. In planning our wedding and honeymoon, we came across some plans to build a teardrop trailer and decided that this would be a great option for our honeymoon! I first found some plans on instructables (www.instructables.com) which then led me to the Teardrops N Tiny Travel Trailers website and forum (www.tnttt.com). If you are interested, there are loads of free trailer plans and designs on the TNTTT site, and tons of great advice from other users about building your own trailer!

This is the design we’ve decided on, the Generic Benroy. We decided on the plans about 2 months ago, and have since purchased the trailer bed that is the foundation for the teardrop. The trailer will be 5 feet wide by 8 feet long and roughly 4 feet tall. It will have either 1 or 2 side doors (we’re not completely sure which yet, though our plans contain both 2 doors and 1 door) and will have a hatch that opens in the back. We want this back hatch to have shelves and storage/cupboard space, so that we can store all of our camping gear while sleeping (see image below).

Our wedding date is scheduled for summer 2015, with the honeymoon a couple of days later. That gives us a little bit less than a year to finish planning the wedding and build the trailer!  The future Mrs. is going to be handling more of the details in the wedding (with me helping wherever I can of course) and I’m going to be handling more of the honeymoon planning and trailer building (with my fiancee helping out whenever she can).

Will keep everyone updated as this project develops!
