Man With No Building Experience Constructs A Beautiful DIY Camper

This guy didn't have any building experience, but he did have a dream. And, that dream was a perfectly curved and portable little camper trailer. So, rather than parting with his hard-earned clams on a ready-made trailer, he set out to work with his bare hands. The result is nothing short of amazing.

It all started with the purchase of a very affordable small flatbed trailer.

First, he installed floors so he could add insulation to the trailer bed.

He cut out the sides of the trailer. You can sort of start to see the shape.

He wasn't sure how to build a frame, so he just kind of winged it. 

Hey, it's a little unorthodox, but it's certainly functioning as a frame.

Now the door frames start to come together. 

He added in the electrical wiring, which is super impressive because he has no prior experience.

Next, comes the insulation.

The curved roof comes together.


Cutting a space in the roof for the vent fan.

Now you can really see the shape of the trailer. It's looking legit.

The doors are on.

The kitchen is in the back hatchback area. It took a few tries, but it's looking good.

Putting up the aluminum siding took a little work.

It’s looking REAL good.

The kitchen was certainly the most difficult part.

But, it was so worth it.

Back to the aluminum siding.

This looks professional.


The bed made its way in, a night stand and a cell phone charger.

The rest of the aluminum siding goes up.

Minor setback: the very last beam of the hatchback's frame broke.

But, with a little help from the internet and a whole lot if ingenuity, he was able to get it back up and supported.

And thus, the hatchback kitchen was ready!

Here is the trailer’s first time out to a state park.

The requisite napping girlfriend.

For a maiden voyage into construction, we give this guy an A+. Well done!
