One of our readers, Jean-René Rodrigue, wanted to share his homemade micro camper with you.

It’s a custom built teardrop trailer designed to be 8′ in length, 5′ in width, and 5′ in height on the interior.

Outside it’s length is actually 11′ 8″ and it’s overall height is 6′ 6″.

It weighs an estimated 750 lbs and has a 2,000 lbs axle on it for support.
