DIY Mini Camper Built from Plywood and Fiberglass

We recently got an email from a reader, Craig D., who built his own DIY mini camper.

It’s interesting to see how a useful camper can be built with simple and cheap materials.

The camper’s structure is made from 3/4″ fine grade plywood.

It’s built on a common utility trailer, and the plywood frame is covered with maintenance-free fiberglass.

Some other features of Craig’s DIY camper include:

  • 110 V electric hookup to power the A/C, TV, DVD, and lights
  • closet for clothing
  • single bench bed with storage underneath
  • small and light, can be pulled by a car

Craig built his DIY camper for a move back to Fort Lauderdale, FL from Ohio.
