Project Camper – Part 1

I’ve been planning to make a cycle camper for a few months now, and having considered many options I’ve decided to go with the fairly popular Coraplas tube version (there’s a few versions of this on YouTube).

It’s a fairly simple design, although I’ve decided to beef up the chassis a little using aluminium and the plastic triple-wall sheeting from a conservatory roof (I know a supplier of such materials) as I’m rather larger than the guy in the photo above.

It started life as a kid’s trailer, stripped down to remove the sides and fitted with an aluminium section A frame to support the structure.

The Coraplas triplewall sheeting is now cut to shape, but that’s as far as I’ve got for now.

The next step is to encapsulate the edges and then create the upper structure using 4mm Coraplas held together with tie wraps, but that’s for another day.
