Our teardrop trailer / Plans & patterns

Chassis (to fit a queen mattress)

Next step - the cabin!

I used recycled steel tube from an old display framework, and a standard chassis kit – and welded a frame large enough to hold a standard queen sized bed (Kate’s request), and with room for the kitchenette in the front.

We could have made a standard 4×6 trailer, but then we would have needed to make a custom mattress as well. The width of our chassis is the maximum allowed in Victoria without lights on the mud guards.
