Hi Dean,

Out of curiosity, have you calculated the weight of this camper addition and
figured what will be needed in terms of building an engine to effectively move
the thing down the road ?

I am up against a similar process in trying to make my TT go at "car" speeds.

Burger, Pulling my trailer my fully loaded weight is 3,500--3,840 pounds. Haven't had a problem in over 100,000 miles.
My concern is the rear axles strength.

Is your engine bone stock, 20hp ? What carb ? Other mods ?

What talent, that looks fantastic. Did you make drawings or our you just fitting as you build?

One suggestion I would have is that you may want to take a rain coat with you when you use that to go camping :-)

Neat! Dean, you are incredible!
I can hardly wait to see good pictures of it when it is finished.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Does it "crank up", or?

Dennis, No drawings fitting as I build. Some days it is rebuild. One day went to making it 5 inches narrower.

Les, The top is about 35 pounds?? lift up.

Dean,
I don't have it in front of me, but you might put up a copy of the original aftermarket maker you are basing your plans on. I put the couple of ads I had under the name in my computer files and I don't remember the name.

Looks like it's coming along nicely. BTW, drove the K today with a hotter plug for #6. I'llstart a thread on it later,
Rob

Very nice Dean! Keep us posted as you make progress

Dean, the answer to your concern re the strength of the axles lies in a pair of safety hubs. I rescued a couple of fellows doing an England to New Zealand trip in a much overloaded van. They' lost a wheel somewhere in Africa, and the subsequent flop, bent their axles.

We fitted a pair of safety hubs which take all the load off the axles and transfer it to the axle housings, just like an A model.

Your thoughts may differ.

Allan from down under.

Dean, Your camper will be miles less in weight than my Lamsteed and its less than a ton.

The Lamsteed not only has more actual body and storage but is also capable of seating 8 adults which it has done on occasions, once being in Richmond in 2008 when Bruce McCalley (RIP) and some press reporters hitched a ride to the air show.

I would think it is going to easily weigh less than a Fordor.

Are you going to call it a Zagelyoder?

What is a Zagelyoder. Must be a OZ term. LOL

Richard, it's a joke, the original design was called Zagelmeyer - this repro version by Dean Yoder would then be a ZagelYoder :-)

Here's an old thread with pictures of the Zagelmeyer: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/442764.html?1399171214
