Teardrop camper trailers

We have looked at this idea before, a new design may be available soon.

To date we have a design, its local so for RSA residents there will be no need to buy plan in an overseas currency.

The kit will include all of the CNC cut body panels, we can further offer the epoxy required to bond the shell together with.

Delivery country or World wide should not be a problem,

Please check in now and again to see what we can offer.

Retro 29 boat building in Hout Bay,South Africa

Progress on the Retro 29 kit we supplied is taking place here in the village where I live.

Hi Dudley and Roy,

Just a few pics of recent work. I found a great way of lining up bulkheads by using a straightedge across the building stocks to position the uprights accurately before adding the bulkhead.

 I get it centred with the correct distance off first bulkhead and then adjust to get it perpendicular by measuring diagonally from a distant centrepoint to each end of the straight edge. 

Not sure if I’m explaining myself well but anyway it works for me! The laser level has made things a lot easier too.

I’ve got three more bulkheads to go and am loving the whole building process so far.



Thanks to John Maarschalk for the use of his image.
