    Today my stepsons decided to rebuild the '48 Kit tear drop trailer I gave the youngest when he bought my 32 pickup. The first picture show the rotten old wood. The rest show the rebuild in progress.

    I love old teardrop campers. I WILL have one someday to tow behind my Shoebox.
     
  7. I did the same job on a '47 Kit for a buddy of mine. Now I get to use it whenever I want! :) It looks just like that '48, of course. I'll try to come up with some pics soon.
