Several years ago we built a large teardrop from scratch. It is based on plans from Popular Mechanics Magazine from 1940. The neighbors loved watching us create something from nothing. After it was done they were always asking why we never had the garage open on weekends anymore.

A couple years ago we purchased the '48 and it started all over again. We parked it out front while we had the single garage door opening raised so it could go inside. Our next door neighbors kept their blinds closed the entire week. We've subjected them to grinding, drilling, air compressor noise......
Next comes riveting - Oh Boy!

Camping with the teardrop is real fun. Lot's of comments, especially when we tell them it was built from scratch. Most people can't get it through their heads.

One year on a Yosemite trip we came out of the tunnel at the vista point that has been on every post card known to man and found the lot full of Japanese tourists. Before getting back on their bus they must have burned several rolls of film on our little trailer. Later that day we couldn't even back into our campsite as people had congregated behind us wanting to take a tour.

Can't wait to get the AS on the road!
