See Inside This Unique Chuckwagon Glamper Trailer

Slabtown Custom Structures have built one-of-a-kind tiny homes and storage units for over 10 years.  The Arkansas-based company handcrafts their buildings unlike anything mass produced and offers them on skids or on a trailer.

In October 2017, they finished one of their most unique designs yet, inspired by teardrop trailers: the Chuckwagon Glamper.

The trailer comes with everything you need except a generator.  It’s fully furnished with a full-size mattress, TV, stocked galley, and extras like a pop-up shower, camp toilet, and pop-up canopy.

In the back, the galley includes Coleman products like a camp oven, a Fold-N-Go 2-burner stove, a Quikpot coffeemaker, and cookware set.  It’s also equipped with a sink, mini-fridge, microwave, and a camp table.

The trailer holds included kayaks and paddles on the roof, and other gear on the exterior.

Items like shovels can easily be stored on the trailer’s exterior. You can also store items inside safely, there’s a ton of storage space between two cabinets and a wardrobe above the bed.

Inside, the full-size mattress sits opposite a 36″ LED television.

The trailer’s interior has 4 LED lights and is kept cool with a 5,000 BTU air conditioning unit. The 3 1/2-foot ceiling provides enough headroom and full-size bed comfortably sleeps one or two.

Closet space is just above the bed to hang your clothes.

The TV comes with a Blu-Ray player that can connect to WiFi and stream movies from Netflix, Hulu, etc.

The included fishing net, kayak dolly, and jerry cans can be secured on the trailer’s front end.

In addition to a huge door, windows are on both sides of the camper for more light and air flow.  This video from Slabtown Custom Structures gives the full tour:

  1. A wood and wood frame camper? Even normal road travel will beat it to death and degrade structural integrity. I hope hanging all that stuff on the sides of the camper is just a marketing gimmick. As others have pointed out, most will be gone after a half-day trip. The major issue is weight. I suspect the target market for this camper are younger folks who typically have small vehicles which can not safely tow the camper. Dry weight is approx 2,600 lbs. Loaded with all of your stuff, probably closer to 3,000 lbs. Can’t tow that with your Subaru Forester or Chrysler minivan – you are in half-ton pickup territory or full-size SUV. Does this unit have an RV placard showing GVWR and axle information? How do you know that the trailer this camper was built upon can safely carry the structure and contents (frame, axles, brakes, tires)?

  2. I think you put a lot of thought in the type of camper that fits your lifestyle and let’s hope there are a few honest people out there who won’t strip you blind. My hubby and I are building a similar camper and are using several of your ideas. Thanks a lot! Happy camping………….

  3. I have a huge fifth wheel from hell with every option on the planet. That being said I would love this cute little rig for special trips great idea I don’t look at other rigs with attitude they all have perpose on the budget for each

  4. This is a joke, right? I’d love to see how many of those exterior items are still there after driving down the road at 60mph for a few hundred miles. Or while parked in any public parking lot. Kitchen looks pretty well equipped (although I certainly don’t see the camp oven, 2-burner stove, or coffee maker that’s listed), but everything that’s clipped to the outside needs to be inside for travel/storage, and flip up counter space on the inside of the galley doors would be a no-brainer addition.
