Offroad teardrop

Recommended Posts

Started on my teardrop last summer, took me about 6 months to build. We love it and had it out at least 20 times this year... Hoping to take it out west next summer.

holy wow, now that's a project!

 

did you start with a pre-made trailer frame/axle/suspension or completely from scratch?

 

is that a heater or a/c box with the ducts coming out?

Nice Job! Looks really good!

 

I love the AC unit.

 

Did you use a published plan or work from your own design?

I bought a couple plans but didn't like them or they were just incomplete, so I spent a year researching the old interwebs. Joined a couple forums and asked alot of questions then started making sawdust fly..

Love it man!! Love everything, trailer and xj!

 

I have a couple questions since I am going to modify my Littleguy 5....

 

 

What size leaf springs did you opt to go with, how many leafs?

 

How much do you think it weighs?

I went with a 3000 lbs axle because of the bigger wheel bearings and the weight of the 35 in tires, I used 2000lbs 3 leaf off the shelf leaf springs and I haven't weighed it but I'm guessing around 1200 lbs. Hope that helps you out
