Default Build it and they will come

Here I go again, Got this bug about campers. Going to build one from the ground up this time. Just ordered a Dexter axle with spring today. 3500lbs 74" spring to spring with 5 lug 5 inch.

Going for the Tear Drop style this time. 6'x10 with the kitchen in the back. Log cabin decor on the inside. 10 gallon water tank, sink, 2 burner stove and room for a queen bed.

I've often thought about building one. Not that I need it but I'm sure my sons and their families would use it.
Keep us posted and let us know how it turns out.

Those tire are from the last axle set on the flat bed. I brought some bricks back from Mexico for the pool decking and BBQ (live in Queen Creek AZ). 11,000 lbs between a 2500 pickup and a 5500 lbs trailer. I made it, but bent both axles doing it.
