Australian Woody Teardrop


A teardrop from Australia this time!

I changed a few things, like the hatch hinge (couldn’t get a long enough hurricane hinge in .au), added the sunroof, and built my own doors and tongue-box.
I also embedded some hidden magnets in the cupboard doors (in the cab) so I could hang a small projection screen. We have a 12v projector for watching a movie.

    Hi Ryan,
    I too am in Oz and plan on tackling this baby early in the new year. Any advice or great suppliers you came across in your travels?
    Many thanks

      Hi BB,

      I’m also using Ryan’s plans and building another Aussie Teardrop, got my door thru AJ Plastics Manufacturing They will cost you but good company deal with. I’m in Vic so I have also had a heap of help from Traf Trailers on building the base from scratch, and parts thru Traralgon Trailers.

    Ryan, do you have this user’s contact info? I am interested in hearing more about his stargazer window if he DIY’d it. I MAY do that with Lexan. Or I will buy one like you put in. I would just like a little bit bigger and I also am having trouble finding ones with clear glass. So just looking at options!
