I wanted to show you Big Al’s homemade camping trailer.
He has nicknamed it ALVAN the camper caravan.
It’s a pretty simple structure on a 8′ x 4′ trailer chasis that he ordered on eazytrailer.com.au.
Once he put that together he set up a foundation right on the trailer and began framing the walls.
Then he proceeded to add more of the camper’s features like:
- Lounge that folds to double bed
- A pop up roof
- Kitchenette area
- Aluminum cladding

In total the Alvan is 10′ by 5.25′. It can be towed with pretty much any small vehicle since it weighs less than 1000 lbs.
I almost forgot to mention, he even added a 12v refrigerator, 12v lighting, and a DVD/MP3 player.
There’s also a tank that holds 6.6 gallons of water.
