A 2' deep shelf above where your feet will be when sleeping would add a lot of storage and not get in your way. Fairly light way to add storage that won't get in the way when you're sitting up at the "tall" end of the rig where the doors are.

That was exactly the plan.

Wittrider, really good work on the camper.

3 friends of mine made these smaller tear drops to tow behind their outfits.

They built in shelves in the cabin and kitchens in the rear deck.

Made a little progress on the teardrop this week, just been sanding, sanding and sanding some more. filling screw holes and just trying to get the surface as smooth as possible.

I'm thinking of covering it in truck bed liner.

Got my Thule roof rack installed, and bought a cargo basket to go on top.

You bet it does! I'm definitely considering it as a option.

Thanks, the plywood on top is 5mm thick, I had to kerf the plywood in the front to make the tighter bend, the rear curve was gradual enough to make the bend without any need for a kerf.

From the research I have done it looks like most builders use 1/8 baltic birch for the top, I could not find any, so I settled on the 5mm.

The South Africans build some of the neatest campers in the world.

Wouldn't that add a lot more weight than you'd want? Or would it be comparable to a think skin of fiberglass?

Do it! It looks awesome Wittrider. We can call it a gourd instead of a pumpkin if you paint it orange

I was thinking bed liner would be heavy too, but the trailer so light right now I don't think it will be a big deal, plus, it will encapsulate the entire trailer body minimizing the risk of leaks later on. I think it would weigh about the same as using fiberglass and epoxy resin plus a few layers of paint.

Just went to the local Rhino-liner place and got a quote for $600 to spray it, too rich for my blood, I think I will do it myself with a roll on or diy spray on kit.

I used Durabak, http://durabakcompany.com/ , on one of my sidecars to seal the bottom and inside and it has held up great for 6 years now. Reasonable price and rolls on with a paint roller. Comes in smooth or textured and even comes in orange.
