I am a retired panel beater and coach builder and have always
enjoyed working with my hands. I built the house we live in and found
working with wood a nice change to metal and an interesting challenge.
After completing my dream of rebuilding/ restoring an EH ute, I was Bored!
Lorraine suggested I needed a new project, and after
we saw a teardrop caravan behind a '34 Ford while we were an holidays in
Warrnambool she asked me to build one to go behind the EH. After
checking out info on the computer and a lot of phone calls to Reiner of
Aussie Teardrop Campers, I started building one on the 15th June 2008. I
really enjoyed building my first teardrop camper, and have lots of ideas
