Fortunately, an awesome website called ANGIB’s Site has a fabulous collection of DIY teardrop camper plans for you to use.

Best of all? They’re totally free.

Pick Which Camper You Like Best – and Build It

Andrew Gibbens, the creator of ANGIB’s Site has a whole lot of teardrop plans to choose from.

Although some of the articles are geared toward UK residents, all of the plans can be used to make a DIY teardrop for use right here in the US of A.

Super Cool Tools

Andrew has a lot of mechanical tips and tricks on the site like:

But one of the best parts of the site are the many camper designs – complete with instructions and detailed engineering plans.

Our Favorite Designs

Here are a few of our favorite designs, although there are a lot more to choose from.

1. Pico-Light

The Pico-Light is even smaller than a normal 8 foot long teardrop trailer, so you want to be sure that you’ll have enough sleeping space inside. If you’re prone to claustrophobia, this trailer probably isn’t the one for you.

Because the design is so small, Andrew recommends that you build a mock-up of the trailer with cardboard before setting out to build the real thing.

You won’t find much in the way of creature comforts with this design. With no galley or dedicated storage areas, you’ll have to pack light.

But what it lacks in frills, it makes up for in utility. Almost any vehicle can pull this simple trailer.
