I built this lightweight mobile workshop/micro-camper/utility trailer on a galvanized chassis that was once a Conway trailer tent.
Construction is mostly 2"x1" timber frames filled with urethane foam insulation (Celotex) surfaced with an acrylic mesh used for garden weed suppression, bonded with thinned Titebond II wood glue and painted with Ronseal garden paint.
The design was improvised and somewhat modified as I went along, so don't ask for plans because there never were any!

(The video was shot on a Samsung ES65 that I picked up for £5 in a charity shop, in old-school 4:3 format, which I still prefer because of the greater height of the image compared with 16:9. Obviously, there is a quality penalty using 640x480 compared with 1080p and 4K, but I wanted to see what it would do.)

Video length: 28:11
