True Rest

A Step-by-Step Guide for the Home Craftsman

At last!  A complete set of teardrop trailer plans that guide you from start to finish on building a teardrop from scratch. 

Two years in the making, they represent the first installment of our Classic Camping Trailer Series,


You wanted details? We got your details.  With 90 pages and over 150 full-color photos, drawings and illustrations, these plans will guide you from welding the chassis to staining the cabinets.  Included are sections on the axle and chassis, forming the body, insulating the cabin, applying aluminum skin, constructing interior cabinets, wiring  diagrams and water system, finishing details and safety considerations.  

These plans will help you no matter which model of teardrop you're building.


These aren't plans for a stripped-down, production-type teardrop.  We're talking top-shelf, heirloom quality construction that will retain its value and last for years.  Options are given for the faint-of-heart or behind-of-schedule for regular drawer joints, but if you have a long winter and a heated shop, we'll show you how to make the best!

Featuring the craftsmanship of Kevin Hauser, our plans explain the mysteries that usually vex rookie teardrop builders, such as "how do you make the hinge so it doesn't leak?" and "how do you bend aluminum angle around corners?"  These operations are broken down into easy steps for you.


Detail after detail has gone into our artwork: full-color measured drawings and exploded views, cross-sections and callouts.  This type of artwork is incredibly labor-intensive and expensive to produce, but when you want the best, its well worth it.


Material Lists and Shop Drawings

We give you five pages of material lists, down to the last screw, and suppliers to find it all.  We're even working with suppliers to prepare packaged bundles of materials to aid your construction.

Besides the pages of text and photos, we supply 16 pages of full-color measured shop drawings, fully cross-referenced in the text.  Details are explained where necessary to enable you to save time and money.  


Our plans guide you through every operation; assembling the chassis, forming the body, insulating the cabin, applying the aluminum skin, constructing interior cabinets, wiring diagrams, water system,  and building a complete galley with propane stove.  We even show you how to build your own icebox from scratch.  Our plans will help you no matter which model of teardrop you're building


Bonus Sections

Included are bonus sections like Uncle Kevin's Cheapskate Sharpening Tips, Uncle Kevin's Guide to Installing Flooring Perfectly On the First Try, Foolproof Cabinet Doors, and of course, Uncle Kevin's Guide to Hand-Cutting Dovetails.  We give tips on working with aluminum, and are pleased to announce the return of Squirrelly the Wonder Cat, who gives directions on how to back up a trailer.
