The silver streak travel trailer was a fun project to work on when I was in my 30s. I had the perfect space to move my junk, but I also wanted to take care of my home and get rid of some of the stuff that I had accumulated. I had also recently purchased a travel trailer so I could move into my new, smaller home.
The trailer that I designed was a modular home. I’d built my house out of the parts I already had so I could take the best parts of each piece and recycle them. It’s a great way to get rid of some stuff and save money, plus it’s a way to travel. I had the idea of building a trailer myself to see if I could build a better one.
So I started with what I had access to, a few pieces of plywood, and some wood, I cut a few angles and a few pieces of plywood to make a box. I put in some foam insulation and some sheetrock and then just built the floor. To make the trailer I just used the parts I already had, and built the box up using the plywood. I then built the walls and roof and then I put in the windows and doors.
In short, I’ve built a trailer from bits and pieces. It was an interesting process and a lot of fun. I’d recommend keeping an eye out for the trailer on YouTube. It’s pretty cool.
The trailer is a little small, but its not bad for the money. I still think its a better idea to hire someone to do the actual construction instead of starting from scratch, but it’s not a bad trailer all by itself.
Silver streak travel trailers are a rare thing. I’ve only seen a few, and I think they are pretty crappy. The biggest issue with them is that they are made out of plywood, which is a bad choice. Plywood is not a great insulator in summer and can actually be a fire hazard if you try to build a fire or place a fire inside. However, the trailer looks pretty cool and I’m not sure it would be a big fire hazard.
If you are interested in making your own, I have a few tips: use the construction-grade plywood you can get at Home Depot and Home Depot. Put the top of your trailer on it, then add the roof and floor.
While the trailer does look pretty cool, I found it to be the wrong material for a travel trailer. Travel trailers are made with high quality aluminum and steel tubing, which could be good insulators.
If you’re in the market for a new travel trailer, I would definitely recommend a lightweight aluminum one. The first thing that you’ll notice is the aluminum is much lighter by weight than steel, though that’s not it’s biggest advantage. The aluminum will actually be harder, making it a great material for your trailer. Aluminum and steel also have a similar density, which means they are both more durable than a plastic material.
Another great feature of aluminum is that it doesn’t rust as easily as other plastics. It is also much cheaper to make, which means you can save a ton of money on your trailer. I think that is why the aluminum is so popular, so it’s definitely worth a look.
