I am able to offer DIY Kits for home builders.

This is a kit for the wooden structure of the teardrop. The DIY builder can construct this teardrop with a minimum fuss with a maximum of enjoyment!  Quality materials are used throughout.
The kit of parts has been designed for easy assembly using a minimum of tools.  All plywood parts are precision cut using a CNC flat bed router.
Parts are machined with locating slots or rebates that allows accurate assembly without marking out or measuring.  

Shown below is the internal configuration. 
2 sliding doors on the lower shelf in the sleeping cabin, 2 sliding doors on the cupboards above the kitchen bench, 3 angled hinged cupboard doors at rear below the bench and 2 sliding drawers at the lower rear of the kitchen. There is also a space below the kitchen bench to house a 15lt water container and hand pump.

Please note the kit does not include screws, glue, cladding, chassis, wheels, guards, lights, stove, windows, locks, mattress etc..

What is included:
  • The kit contains all the Ply and Hardwood necessary for the construction of the Teardrop Camper. 
  • All parts are precut to exact size ready for assembly.
  • All screw holes are pre-drilled in the top part for easy alignment and assembly.

A lot of effort has been put into making this teardrop kit as 'lock-step' as possible.  Ease of building has been an important part of the design process.  Systematic, fast, and accurate assembly.  I hope you enjoy building this Teardrop Camper as much as I do!
