    Default Building a camp trailer / teardrop

    So I have started my after hours project. And loving it.

    I started with the chassis with the idea to make custom independent suspension in mind but I just couldn't source all the parts. (Stub Axle etc...)
    So I managed to get a brand new second hand 1400 kg Ruberide axle used for offload campers.

    And I changed the chassis slightly and my project kicked off.

    Ill post photos as I go along.

    I have a few things I battle with but we sit here with vast knowledge in this group so ill share and ask some advise as I go along.

    Keep on posting please. What will be the weight? How long is the axle? What size are the tires. Sorry for so many questions.
