    IKEA is fine, even very good for the price point.
    We have this formula for marital bliss.
    The wife needs some furnishing or another and I insist I can build better than she can buy.

    Doug thanks.
    I am designing a pop up with fabric top.
    I will post if I can get the model built.

    Thanks noted

    I have some decent insights into sparse but quality construction methods so I might be able to land at good target weight.

    As a very young lad my job was to hold the jar of pop rivets for my dad as he built out a pop-up camper on a old Model T chassis.

    Weight... I have no ideal.
    Right now we are rednecking it- big tent and my old 6x10 utility trailer setup as a chuck wagon.

    Thanks- aluminum choice just to keep the trailer light and beat the rust problem.
    I haven’t worked out the particulars but was thinking aluminum for everything from frame, deck framing on up to...
  11. OT: I am considering building a trailer- sub frame out?

    I have this camper trailer ideal kicking around.
    It’s a full custom job not in market so sort of meets that criteria of only build if you can’t buy it..
