225's Teardrop Camper Build

Thought you guys would like to see my teardrop camper build...


Everything I ever built, there was always a gray area of a build. Including cost, time, effort, etc....

My Yamaha is a great example of that. So was the first attempt at my teardrop build. So this time I am going to document EVERYTHING on this build. To see how much time, and money it really costs. In addition to all that, I will be doing a time lapse video of the progress as well. So you guys will be able to physcially see what I'm doing.

Just for reference, I am using a guide to build my teardrop camper. So this is not a 100% custom design. But I am not following the guide except as a guideline of how to construct the actual camper. The guide can be found HERE

A removable rail will go on the tongue for a bike.

Here estimated prices. And still a lot to add.

Windows: 15"Hx18"W $56.00 x 2 + $25 shipping - $135
Hurricane Hinge for hatch: $90
Perko power inlet: $70
Marine battery: $120
Battery charger/tender: $100
12v marine power cutoff/ Perko: $40
Skin: $90 a sheet x 6: $540
Perko door hinges: $118
Door latches/locks: 100
All moulding: est around $200
Wiring: ??
Trailer lights: $100
2 car stereos. One in/one out- $200 x 2: 400
wheels+tires: $400
Mattress:?
Wood: around $350
Flooring: $300
Vent fan: $200
Fuse box: $100
Side tent: $300 (exact)
Steel: $300
Fenders:$100
Axles: 260
a/c: $500

Estimated: $5000. So let's say 6k.

Sounds like a lot. But these campers are the cat's meow. Once you see it in person, you will see why.

Anyway more to come.
