Very ingenious!! It would be interesting to see how well it holds up over time while
actually being used on the road.
I get the feeling he hasn't actually taken it on a trip yet.
Another thought....
I really wonder if that type of structure would handle the wind load
while being towed behind a motorcycle at 70 mph. Of course if it's
being used behind a motorcycle, it could be built a bit heavier
and sturdier.

I started watching Kirsten YEARS ago when he built a really tiny trailer with a head bubble.
As time and testing marches on so does updates and viewers ideas get incorporated. (i sent a few)

Since this version is much better than his last I thought y'all either get a kick or ideas.
I've played with Coroplast a couple decades ago, even met the kid who designed and made his first sheet. Even then I seen improvements and suggested a few, he was quite receptive. So far the one suggestion he/they haven't done is sealing off the ends channels with alternating connecting tubes for a hot water solar panel. Now thinking on it, inserting controlled LED lights for a marquee sign (I'm stretching that one a little).

ANYways,... always fun to see what someone else did and think on it for your use. :P

I thought suspending his bed above the floor was a very good idea. His windows and air vents need a screen over them. One night with mosquitoes and he'll put screens in. :roll:

I don't think there wasn't any room for a mosquito. :D
