    Looks very expensive to build … I can see why Tear drops sell for $10 000 …

    • ryan_teardropbuilder

      I surely went overboard in a couple areas but you could easily make some design changes and save a couple thousand. However I would recommend you should always try to use good quality components, in the end it will look better and last much longer.

  • Pete O’Brien

    Did I miss the door in your price breakdown ?

    • Nope, its in there.
      Side Door 2 x $259.95

  • Peter

    Hi, I am Peter. Just starting to build a tear-drop. Please tell me where you purchased the side door and the name of the manufacturer. Thanks

  • Peter Blomberg

    Ryan, great site and awesome information! The teardrop looks incredible!

    I am up in Douglas, and curious about where you were able to find the 5×5 plywood in this area.

    Also, what was the registration like in Wyoming – did you register it as a trailer or did you do it after it was fully built? My trailer should be arriving in a week.

    Thanks,
    Peter.

    • Thanks Peter!

      I found a couple places for my birch plywood, Sears Trostel (Awesome place) in Fort Collins, and also Bloedorn Lumber in Cheyenne. I believe Capital Lumber in Cheyenne carries it as well. Not that uncommon to find it and if they don’t have it they can usually order it. Sears Trostel was the only place I could find the Okoume in 500 miles…

      I registered the trailer right away with the VIN provided on the trailer, very easy.

      Good luck on your build!
