Chesapeake Light Craft has released a DIY Teardrop Kit that will have you enjoying a 'soft-roader' Teardrop Trailer for under $5,000.
With the publication of FJC Magazines first review of the Manley Explore trailer in the April 2013 issue, the question once again comes up: is it better to buy a trailer ready to go, or to build one from a used military-style trailer?
To put the cart before the horse, the answer of course is that it depends on your situation. Time and money are the two main variables in this equation, but don’t forget about skill.
The original developer of the Dinoot Trailer is working on a new project: A DIY fiberglass trailer that's built to original M-416 military trailer size specs. This looks like it could be a very inexpensive way to get into a fuller size off road trailer without the expense of an all-steel or aluminum model.
Will there be any interest in this type of trailer? There are many plusses and few minuses to the idea, and of course it's still in development.
