Alternative living and DIY off-grid homes are all the rage and for good reason. They are more sustainable and pocket-friendly living spaces. Plus, there’s a sense of accomplishment and appreciation that comes from standing in a handcrafted structure — whether it’s a log cabin, a shipping container home, an Earthship, or a DIY travel trailer.

Regarding the latter, Homesteadonomics shares some building instructions and design tips with a 3-part video series on how to build a DIY travel trailer from conception to completion. In a series of videos, he highlights the steps and important consideration in a manner that is suitable for both experienced handypersons and beginner RVers.

Part 1 – The Frame

This video was all about building the frame of the trailer — which is a blend of the classic Teardrop and a conventional full-size camp trailer. This includes creating the steel chassis, trailer tongue, axle, wheels, and welding different parts for the basic steel shell.

Key Takeaway: Always start with a great plan—including detailed design schematics!

Part 2 – Aluminum Exterior and More

The second installment focused on the finer details of the frame – i.e., adding window framing, beefing up the trailer tongue, fabricating the wheel well, welding in mounting tabs to hold additional wood support, sanding out welds, and painting the shell. He also goes on to highlight the process of flooring. He uses 2×4’s attached to mounting tabs and bolted plywood.

Part 3 – Insulation, Windows/Door, Aluminum Trim

The final step of this project was installing windows and door, weather proofing, adding aluminum trim, and starting work. Interestingly, Homesteadonomics attached the panels to the trailer frame using VHB (Very High Bond) tape — rather than rivets or screws. It has the benefit of little-to-no perforations and it allows the panels to expand/contract with changing temperatures.

If the idea of building your very own roadworthy DIY camp trailer crossed your mind, here are the 3 videos in one place!
