He Took A Cargo Trailer And Turned It Into One Seriously Awesome Camper

Camping isn’t exactly high up on my list of favorite recreational activities, but every now and then, I endure becoming one with nature.

I’d probably enjoy camping a bit more if I had one of those tricked-out campers with hot water and a TV, but with those luxuries, is there really any need to leave my house for the weekend? It also doesn’t help that a fully loaded camper or RV can cost a small fortune.

That’s the problem hookhands and his wife were having. The couple wanted to spend more time camping, but sleeping in a tent just wasn’t for them. While his wife wanted a teardrop camper, our builder set out to build a slightly cheaper alternative. He was eventually able to completely overhaul a new cargo trailer into a cozy camper!
