Hey guys, I'll make it quick. I have been tossing the idea of building small campers but the math just doesn't jive right now, I would need to build 20+ trailers per year alone to make enough money to keep me happy...so for now I am going to focus on having a blast with the one I built and see where it all goes.

I started a website to track my adventures and suchlike. Feel free to post up any comments, recommendations, things you would like to see! Hope to catch you guys out there soon!

You gonna pull it out on the ice? Not to late to drill a hole in the bottom :wink:

Looking good man, I wish you the best!

Thanks guys! I love building things so this was right up my alley...I did consider taking it out on the ice but I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to drive my truck out there! Might have to make an unofficial WCF event one day and try it!

Quick little TANTO update! I installed a roof rack for accessories like an awning and a custom kayak rack I plan on building....and I bought a cooler that ended up being a bit too big for the kayak so I decided to make a comfort box! It should heat up or cool down my camper nicely before bed time with frozen things or hot water...with just under a gallon of water at near boiling in a jug brought the temp up 10 degrees in an hour! More pics on Facebook and the TANTO site! Next up is mounting the awning and that kayak rack...never ends?
