Okay, so now I want to build something that will be towable by a 4-cylinder Honda, carry a racebike, and have a place for my and my girl to sleep off the ground. I'm thinking adding some 2' high walls to the current trailer, and fitting a canvas top that snaps onto the walls with a couple arched tent poles to bow it up. Rig weighs about 900# currently, with bike, tools, and race gear onboard. I can reasonably go as high as 1400-1500# before it gets problematic.

This should be interesting.

[QUOTE=Jurgen;16617683]Found this up in the Rockies sub-forum. Sounds like they may be having supplier issues, but Jurgen is very intriqued. Very.

Go the "foamie" section.

Just spent most of my Sunday looking through that site. Very very innovative ideas to get the most out of a tiny space. Not sure I'm quite sold on cooking outside (gotta eat when it rains too!) but if a teardrop can haul a bike too I think that might be a good way to go.

Just spent most of my Sunday doing insulation work at a friends' house.

He's a mechanical engineering student.

He's looking for a senior project.

The concept of building a fully functional, aerodynamic, less-than 800 pound toyhauler appeals to his sick sense of accomplishment.

I do believe I've found my accomplice.

Yeah, that is a pretty good idea, but not ready for prime time yet. It needs an integrated floor/deck, you should be able to lift or slide the camper off the trailer without disassembling it. And better interior components. Plywood doesn't cut it.

Nice concept though. I hope they can get the capital to fully develop it, and hire someone better at marketing, preferably a hot chick for the videos.

Definitely. Was at the track today, talking it over with a teammate. He's stoked. Doing lots of homework now on foam construction techniques.
