Our first priority in the cargo trailer camper conversion is to make it easy to transition between the trailer, home, and hotels. I found “luggage shelves” that I think will eliminate the need to unpack everywhere we go.

In this episode we help John build an oversized sewing/quilting table that he bought the plans for 10 years ago! It’s made of simple 1×4 pine and plywood components. It has loads of storage and a built in ironing board!
In this episode we build a kid’s loft bunk bed with built-in homework desk, storage bench, and reading area. All of the stair steps have hidden drawers with plenty of space on the bookshelves and night stand for everything a kid could want!
Can we fit a decent sized grey water tank in the spare tire compartment of the trailer? I also see if I can convert Hudson’s crib back to a closet in under 15 minutes.
