In Response To: S&G: CLC Teardrop Camper ()

There are a couple versions of the kit. I got the one with all the glass/epoxy/fillers plus all of the door/hatch hardware. I also purchased a ventilation hatch/fan, a galley organizer, and a foam headliner. The camper shell is bolted to a trailer, which is a separate purchase. I plan on building my own rooftop carrier, and storage box.

I am very impressed with the Chesapeake Light Craft kit. Everything fits together perfectly, the quality of the wood is great, and the instructions are thorough with fine illustrations. The cradle, they provide, to assemble the shell is a very clever solution to holding things in the proper place during construction, and allowing the builder to roll it around to 5 different positions while working on the different surfaces of the camper.
