So, I just built an adventure trailer (a.k.a. a bug-out trailer, expedition trailer, camping trailer, etc.). Why?
- I love camping.
- I’d go more often if I didn’t have to haul my equipment in and out of the attic every time.
- I want to travel more. Camping is more frugal and fun than staying in hotels.
- One of the reasons I want to travel more, and more cheaply, is so I can afford to get around and teach Rough ‘n’ Tumble martial arts.
- Why a trailer and not a camper? A trailer is way cheaper than a camper. Besides, I have a mattress and a camper shell for my truck and sometimes I want to sleep in a tent anyways.
This thing cost me less than a thousand bucks to build. Here’s the breakdown:
|Lowes 40″ x 60″ basked trailer||$ 459.00|
|Title tags, registration||$ 166.00|
|Hardware and accessories||$ 21.94|
|Paint and sundries||$ 61.10|
|Wood, glue, screws||$ 115.59|
And here are some build pics.
Here’s to great adventures!
