TTT Dreamer in New Jersey

Postby agpage » Wed Aug 09, 2006 5:10 pm

I came across this site just over a year ago while looking for RV plans. I decided that this type of trailer would fit my needs very well. I am mostly a lurker, but this is my 11th post.

Right now I am looking at all of the larger designs and trying to see what fits in 1500 lbs. I plan on doing mostly short weekend camping. I have a 2 year old and a 2 month old and would like a design with room for four. It would be nice to have a camping solution that can fit in the garage, and not cost $$$$$$$$ to move around. I also really like building things myself.

I live in New Jersey and work in the IT department of Rutgers University

This has been a great community.
(And yes, I’ll post pictures when I start :D )

Well you got here first but hello and welcome. If you want it in the garage better measure first. Mine will barely go in and maybe not after I put the vent on. :( See the opener is sticking down.

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

Hi Andrew,

You might want to check out my Album only because my camper is 8 X 4 X 5 1/2 wide to sleep 2 adults and 2 kids. There is no galley due to this requirement. A fold down bunk/couch makes beds for the kids. I am trying to build light and inexpensive. Maybe it will give you some ideas.

4 feet

Postby agpage » Thu Aug 10, 2006 4:15 pm

EZ, At 4 feet high, how do the kids like the binks. I was figuing I'd need 5 feet to make it work.

The work looks good. I'll be curious to hear a first trip report. Hopefull from the kids too!

My plan was to go a bit bigger. I want the galley. Currently I am planing on he inside being sleep only.

I figure if the weather looks bad, I won't go.
