    I wouldn't so much call it a "camper" as just a place to sleep out of the rain. I applaud his efforts though. Looks like a put a lot of time into it.
    But $1000? I'll give him $300 to take it away so my kids can play in it.

    Still quite a deal for $1,000. I'm sure he put a whole lot more than that in it.

    It is basically a coffin. The TV looks like it is a wide screen but it is only a 20" TV.

    I appreciate home built things and have played with a lot of little boats for many years but this is way too claustrophobic for me.

    I bet he has more in the electronics than the general build. And in the event you didn’t notice, I believe the coffin theme was his goal. Still at $1k it’s a lot less than some of these commercial teardrop builds and looks to do the same thing.

    Not my cup of tea, I like room stand up and to move around, especially in inclement weather, I can think how hot the thing would be in the summer here in Fl. Best to take the 1K price and put it toward a much better and roomier unit. (my opinion)

    I'm sure the coffin theme is intentional, considering the cross on the door and writing on back. It came across well.
