Anyone know of any plans or good photos of campers that would be for a TT. I have a 26 TT flatbed and think it would be cool to build a camper for it. Would be great to get some information.
Mark

Terry Light from Bismark,Il has a good collection of literature on campers.I don't have his phone number ,but you can look him up.Evening would be best as he runs a landscape business.

If you search for "Model TT" housecar with google image, you'll find a bunch of cool old examples :-)

Hello Mark
Our "Tinnebago Trekker" is nearing completion and we thought you may like to see what we have done so far.
It is hoped to have the project completed before Easter 2015.

Yes, some interior shots before any more work is done on the inside. Por favor?

Dave and Aaron
These two photos show the skeleton when we first started and the other of the interior as it is currently. The interior is still the subject of "domestic debate"
The timber shown will surround and encase the pull up windows. The door windows will be wind up. TT motorhome skeleton

Slight alteration, the second picture is of a rebuilt Tin can camper built from plans originally in Popular Mechanics in the 1920's.

It resides in a museum in Florida.
