Hi there

I've seen some great build threads on here and am tempted to have a go myself.

I was thinking of using a 6x4 existing trailer as the base- good plan for a first timer?

I am thinking of colour coding it to the van. Should it be built out of ply and coated in some way or should I just use some kind of plastic sheet instead? If so what should I use and where can I get it from?

All the above work may depend on me inventing an extra day to the week which does not have young kids in it!

Thanks in advanceT:

Rob

Hi your structure should def be ply. Ive skined in plastic and ali, Ali is better to work with. As for trailer 6x4 will act like a seesaw as most have center wheels( have a look at my one). If ya need any advice just holla and gud luck

Hi there

Thanks for the reply- saw your teardrop.... Very niceT:

Will take your advice. I think Ali might be easier and quicker.

Did you just cut out the doors with a jigsaw- my jigsaw cuts badly!

Are your doors pre Bought?

Thanks again
