Howdy ZombieSoldier, I'm planning on storing my 12v system on one side and leveling stuff on the other with spare parts in the middle. The top half will have rolled mats and light stuff. :D

Here's my profile in a drawing; construction incomplete. See for construction progress.

This is my own design, roughly 11'4 long by 63" wide, and is formed by the intersection of two ellipses. Details on the blog above.

The Schnoodle Shack...
*When doing anything, if there exists no possibility of failure, then any feeling of success is diminished.
**The glass is neither half full nor half is simply twice as big as it needs to be.
***If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.
****When I die, I want to die like my grandfather, who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Her is mine.
Started as the "Cedar Shack" but the "Woodshed" seems to fit better. Its a standy that sleeps two.

Interesting profile ... I'm going to watch this one.

Mine too is not conventional, and has a rear galley/storage packed with gear. More modern? not really, but another approach definitely! 96776111160110132

Anyone have a teardrop in the shape of a Barracuda? :thinking:

No, but I know someone who is building one from a '57 Chevy. He's been over three years on
it and may have it down at Sweetwater. The last pictures I saw of it, it was looking real good.

This is the guy that is building it.

Have a good day.
Oh, and he plans on pulling it behind a '57 Chevy that he has (show quality).

I'd like to see thew 57 Chevy, but for some reason the image didn't show up for me.
