I am starting this thread on a camper build that I have been contemplating for a some time now. I talked to my friend the engineer today and he gave me several ideas on how to keep the load light and cheap.
Here is the idea. A basic camper that is lightweight and cheap to build. I.E. under 1000 pounds (unloaded) X under $1000 (Hense 1x1)
This is not your fancy Earthroamer, just a box. It will have a bed that converts into a couch and a table that is small. Foldable counters and a foldable sink.
Here is my first delema.
The materieals. I want something that is light weight but easily workable (no special tools so aluminium is out.) Mild steel and plywood is what im thinking. with angled edges.
What else is there.
"use a bigger hammer" my boss
"your doing it wrong!" everyone
"couple beers and a sawzall we will get it taken care of."
