What do you do when you have a utility trailer and an ARB Awning just sitting around? Well you build a teardrop trailer around them or at least that’s what Alabama Overland’s Andy Jones decided to do.
After selling his M101a2, Andy decided that he wanted a Teardrop style camper. Using a 5×8 Big Tex utility trailer as his base, Andy began his ultimate budget camper build. Not wanting anything extreme, just something to tackle forest service roads, back-country dirt roads and perhaps the occasional Auburn tailgate.
Follow along as we watch an ordinary utility trailer transform into one heck of a weekend warrior.
Make sure that you stay tuned for Part II when we cover how Andy decided to protect his new camper from the elements.
