My recently completed 'craftsman-built' micro camper: The Nutmeg.

Hello, I very recently acquired a '94 Excella 28', and now I'm busy assessing its needs and giving it a lot of TLC, and also considering any modifications that I might like to do.

In the meantime, here's a link to a photo album of my first camper that I just completed. I started with a Harbor Freight-style frame (bought before HF ever existed), and proceeded to build the camper from cedar wood and 5mm birch plywood, rigid house insulation, and canvas, plus paint an glue. It was an adventure, and it tows beautifully.

Thanks. I think of it as a weekender camper, or maybe a bugout camper. It's been through several heavy thunderstorms and stayed dry as a bone inside. Since it's only 5-1/2 ft wide and 9-1/2ft long, a picnic-type popup shelter can shield the galley and doors for rainy weather, and it tucks away nicely in the garage for the winter. It would be easy to get by for a week or two in it, and any car can tow it since it only weighs 750lbs.
