The Register: The Home of the Mighty BOFH

More new stories since I last checked, weeks ago I guess. Wish the BOFH would give in to rss, then I would be able to read them when they come out. 🙁

Camper plans

By , September 23, 2007 9:06 pm

Been working on a camper the last few days. Decided to go ahead and build one out of the crap I have laying around here at the ranch.

Started off with stripping an old popup camper that has been weathering since the mid 80’s. Got it stripped down to the frame and remaining good plywood decking. Cut two new front corners in a right triangle 11 inches x11 inches, out of old pallet corners made of 3/4 inch plywood. Ground off the remaining screws where the plywood had rotted, so am starting with a pad about 6 feet by 7 feet. Am going to have to add a piece almost 3 x 6 feet at the back to cover the entire floor. That gives me a total area 76 inches by 120 inches to work with. Below are scans of the drawings I made of the basic floor and elevation plan for that floor area on separate pages:

Both floor and elevation plans on same page:

Will try to get pix of the floor and frame and assorted materials asap.

One of his better short stories by one of my favorite authors. Good stuff!
