Cheap Teardrop Trailer Hot Water

Cheap Teardrop Trailer Hot Water

This was a quick T@B hack, but my trailer model does not have a hot water heater.  That’s fine by me as those extras take up more space, but after hacking a shower set up for use during the summer festivals it dawned on me that it would easily work for hot water in the […]

Teardrop Trailer Solar Power Set Up

Teardrop Trailer Solar Power Set Up

I have wanted to add solar to the T@B all along. After using the trailer last summer we started to get an idea for how long the battery would last and what we could and couldn’t do. So I put some items on my wishlist after doing some research and left the idea on the […]

Introducing My T@B Teardrop Trailer

Introducing My T@B Teardrop Trailer

One of my toys is a teardrop trailer. I had been admiring them for quite awhile after first encountering one at Burning Man in 2007?  It was never really practical during my first marriage, and when I found myself disastrously divorced I think my sister was looking for something to help cheer me up.  She […]

T@B Teardrop Trailer Layout Remodel

T@B Teardrop Trailer Layout Remodel

My 2006 T@B is the “L” layout means it has an L shaped kitchen counter, but it also came with back cabinets that went to the floor.  The “Q” layout has shorter back cabinets and creates a wrap around bench seat with the back seat bench laying down to allow the bed to extend under […]

T@B Upholstery: After

Since we were taking apart the cabinets, for the layout remodel, we where messing with the panels where two of the three interior 12v light fixtures were.  It seemed like a good time to change out the acrylic light fixtures.  The switches are notoriously finicky and while they can be repaired it was an easy […]

Updating the T@B Teardrop Trailer Kitchen

Updating the T@B Teardrop Trailer Kitchen

  While remodeling the layout I had considered trying to wallpaper the entire interior since we were pulling down the cabinets, but my investigations weren’t conclusive on if that would work or not.  Then while we were shopping for the remodel materials I spotted Smart Tiles at the hardware store.  They looked like an interesting […]

First T@b Trailer outing!

First T@b Trailer outing!

I still haven’t recounted my first camping trip with my (new to me) t@b trailer!  After getting the Subaru trailer wiring redone properly for the t@b (Thanks Geoff!) and lots of last minute shopping on Amazon for bits and pieces. We headed out to Ocean City State Park for four days and three nights.  “We” […]
