Like I needed any new projects, but I have started building a Gypsy wagon style travel trailer for my wife and me to tour some of the state parks this spring. I am building it on a 4x8 trailer that we have sitting around. Excited to get it all framed in. Needed a short break from house build, and couldn't think of a better in between project to take on. Call me crazy but I have a lotta fun....while she teach school all day I enjoy just whatever feels good as I am retired.

Making a little progress, and I am pleased with what I see so far with no plans to go by. Just thinking it through as I go along. Bought the heavy duty  trailor kit today from Harbor Freight to put it on.
