Teardrop Build week 2

I don’t really have a time parameter for this build, I just do as much as I can in the time I have. This week, I was able to wire the trailer and build the floor joists.

IMG_4846 IMG_4847I know as much about wiring a trailer as…well, I just don’t know anything about it okay.

Thankfully, you can learn anything imaginable from youtube.

Harbor freight supplies you with some super cheap wire and really stupid splicers and wire nuts. I would probably suggest buying your own stuff if you choose to do a build like this. I am going as cheap as possible on this one though, and miraculously all the lights worked when I tested it out.

The other thing I was able to manage was begin the wooden frame of the floorboard. I bought 2x4x8 pressure treated boards and ripped them into 2x2s. This is what it looks like right now.IMG_4855

At this point, I’m pretty pumped to start cutting some wood and begin. I am learning patience though, I want this to be brilliant. So, I am going to have to take this slow and think it out.

Again, I did some research about building these before I jumped in, and there are some much smarter guys who are doing things a lot better. I didn’t find many things about what it was actually LIKE to do this, so I’m just sharing my experience.
