A round of congratulations to one of our own contributors.

Tony Latham a helpful contributor to this and many other teardrop groups has released his latest book
“Building a Teardrop Trailer”:

Some of the subject matter ... m+teardrop

Plans and Methods for Crafting an Heirloom Camper.
“Are you thinking about building a teardrop camper? Dreaming of hitting the road and heading to parts unknown? Are you ready to sleep in a cozy cabin on wheels and leave the flapping tent and hard ground behind?Teardrops are towed behind small vehicles in rainstorms with winds that a forecaster would classify as a hurricane. Their wheels drop into bottomless asphalt chuckholes. They are seen on the back roads running over washboards and kicking up dust plumes that can be seen for a mile. They shouldn't be built like a garden shed. Within these 194 pages–including 221 photographs and diagrams. Latham goes into detail on how to build a teardrop camper that will last a lifetime.In Building a Teardrop Camper, Latham shows you how to build insulated walls with a classic curved profile. He shows you how to build a galley hatch and doors that are dry and dust-proof. In the chapter on the undercarriage, he describes everything from the size of the steel to what axle needs to go underneath it. Other chapters cover wiring, heating, solar systems, propane plumbing and how to create an efficient galley. You will find all the details in this book needed to build a classy, comfortable, and durable teardrop camper.”
