    Installed the window. Framed it out in 1" tube. I have to do the walls first before I can mount. Maybe next week.

    If anyone is interested in something similar, I work with a guy that has a 6x10 enclosed trailer for sale.. would be a great platform.. wish I would have known about it before we bought the popup! LOL
    Find out how much. I've been looking for one. Could you ask about dry weight as well?

    6'x10' will weigh in at about 1000-1100 empty. Mine built and loaded should be about 2000lbs. This is with 16 gallons of water. I have 2-16 gallon tanks. one in the front and one in the rear. this way I can control the tongue weight so I can get it where I like it. Headed out to get some paneling today. Going with a light luan for the ceiling and a wainscoting for the walls. I will trim it later but I have to get the roof in before I can do the walls and I need the wall done in order to mount the window.

    This is a project I've been thinking about doing for a while now. Just didn't know what I wanted included in it. You've sparked some ideas...thanks!

    i have been wanting to build a teardrop for 8 years now. This has freed up sometime. Mine will be simple and light as possible. We just do not need much and spend very little time in campers. I have had Popups, Travel trailers, tents, home built travel trailers..... We just never spend much time in them unless the weather is bad.

    Working on my AC soon. i have small 5000 BTU window unit that will run on my 2000 watt generator. I plan to make it portable. Goiing to build a cover for the intake and one for the cold air exhaust. Then all I have to do is lift it out, plug in the ducts and crank it up.

    I'll incorporate a false bottom in mine for batteries, somehow. Lol, probably have some solar panels on top as well.

    It is all insulated and the first wall panel went in.



    Window is mounted



    Had to make a spacer for the inside window. So the ring would clamp it in properly.
