I just finished building a rustic teardrop shaped camper to take to trad bow shoots.  Here is a picture slideshow of the build.

That thing is awesome!  Great job on the build!

Do you know the total weight?  Just curious.

I don't know the final weight.  The tongue weight is just about perfect.  It pulls good empty or loaded with 150 staves in the back

I love it. I've wanted to build a homemade off-road trailor for awhile. Just may be my winter project after watching that.

Thanks guys.  I took it to the Tennessee Classic for a week and the Marshall, Michigan Primitive shoot for 4 days.  It's very comfortable to sleep in with the memory foam mattress.  I will be taking it to the Scottsburg, IN ITBA shoot in September.

I had to have some osage somewhere on it.  My first plan was to have some logs milled into thin boards to use for the siding.  When I got free access to old red oak barn siding I decided to go that route.  I was afraid the osage boards would warp and crack anyway.
