going to look at a rear door 22'
Glancing at the middle two pics I thought I was going to have to punt your post to the marijuana thread.
or the packers
I wonder what makes the rear door 22 400 lbs more than the front door 22?
It looks to have a tub where the front door one doesn't - can't see anything else major though
i wonderred that also
so i went and looked at the camper.
its a 22' rear door argosy
argosy was a line of campers made by air stream,
basically a painted airstream and they did some trial stuff.
it was pretty neat, worth the price @ $3k
needed some work, hadn't been used in a few years. structurally and mechanically really good. mainly a good cleaning, paint would polish up nice
rreally liked the floor plan, rear bath front cabin
like this but no air unit (bonus)
So did ya get it?!
I really like Airstreams & Argosys of that size but for the fact you can't tote a bike/ATV in them.
just looking for now
...our 13' canned ham is still the family favourite
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.
You need to go here,,,,,
Lots of awesome ideas,,,,,
Go the "foamie" section.
I spend almost as much time there as I do here.
Had no idea what a foamie was......Damn! Time to waste many more hours reading...gurrrrr
Too much internet. Not enough hours in the day. Thanks!
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.
Sounds like a thread in the making!
Definitely. Was at the track today, talking it over with a teammate. He's stoked. Doing lots of homework now on foam construction techniques.
