My TearDrop build finished

Postby MtTdrop » Wed Feb 19, 2020 2:19 pm

I finished my Teardrop, and thought I would post a couple of pics. My new project is now converting a Tent Trailer into an Aliner A Frame trailer.

Congratulations Nice job.
Is that a heater on the cabin ceiling?
If so is it 12 volt or 110 volt, looks interesting.
Looks like 3 mattress pads which will be convenient.
Great choice for the stove, I’ve put them in all my builds.
Looks like a Wilsonart laminate top.
Will you be changing the downward angle between the tow vehicle and TD?
:D Danny

Nitpick? Hitch receiver a bit low, trailer tilts forward a bit rather than being level?

Well done. It looks close to mine which I finished for the most part last September/October. This winters project was to finish out a tongue box.160821159606159609155077151225

A teardrop is never finished. You’re going to be making continuous improvements and tweaks on it.

Cool tear btw. :thumbsup:
Done? Surely you jest. A teardrop is never "done".

Superb build. Fantastic job! Thanks for sharing. Great attention to details.
What are the grills on the tongue box for? Ventilation or speakers?

Maybe just a camera angle but it appears the front of the trailer is angled down rather than level with the tow vehicle in the second photo (nice photo). I am sure you have it covered but I will mention it anyway (for people like me). My understanding is the trailer should be level for best towing control.

Many happy adventures!
