It seems like an eternity ago, but back in the day, camping was considered one of the great modern pleasures of our time.
In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a campground without a trailer park in sight.
If you’re like me, the concept of camping has been a little overwhelming for some.
But if you’re willing to put in the work and build a home in your own backyard, it’s a lot of fun.
A trailer park is the perfect spot to build a campfire, camp stove, and a camper in under three weeks.
But before you dive into your first attempt, I want to tell you that there are a few things to remember about this project.
First, this isn’t a DIY project.
You can’t just buy a few tools and throw it together yourself.
It’s a labor-intensive process, and you’ll need to find someone to do the work.
And yes, it can take a few weeks for your first project to become fully functional.
But you can do it, and I can guarantee you that it will be worth it.
I had the pleasure of working with the Great American Camping & RVing Association (GACAA) to design and build my tent for the campground I plan to use.
I wanted to get a tent that I could trust and feel safe in.
I had to find a tent manufacturer who could provide my tent with a tent-sized interior.
A trailer park would have required an extensive and expensive renovation.
It would have made a big difference in my finances, and it would have drastically impacted the way I would live in the future.
Instead, I chose to build my own tent out of the cheapest materials available.
And in just a few days, I was able to build something that I can be proud of.
How to Build Your Own Camping Tent in Under Two Weeks You’ll Need: 1 tent 1x3x5x8x10 x 12′ x 6′ x 4′ x 3′ (12′ x 12′) (6 x 2×3) (10′ x 10′) 1x2x4x6 x 8′ x 5′ x 1′ (8 x 2 x 2) (4 x 1 x 2.5) 1 x1x1x3 x 10′ x 2′ x 9′ (4x 1 x 3) 2×2 x 1×2 (1 x 1) (1) You’ll Need Tools: A shovel or miter saw A hand saw or drill Carpenter’s square saw Hand tools, such as a router, chisel, chisels, or chisel blade A drill press (or drill bit) A table saw or router blade Sandpaper (optional) Safety glasses or face shields (optional, but recommended) If you’re building this tent from scratch, make sure you use the right tools.
For example, I wanted a very sturdy tent, so I used a shovel and a miter.
And I used the miter to sand the edges of the tent.
You don’t want to get any abrasive on the tent, and sanding is a critical step for a tent to be stable.
Now that you have the tools and the materials you need, you’ll want to assemble your tent and make sure it works.
Step 1: Determine the Material You’re Building Your Tent from 1 to 2 You’ll need the following materials to build this tent: (1) A 2×4 foot 4’x6′ x 11′ (6 x 1.5 x 1′) 2 x 2 foot 6’x7′ x 14′ 1 4 foot 4ft x 6.5′ (6.5×2) (2) 12’x12’x18′ 4×1.5″x4′ (2 x 3 x 1″) 1 8’x10’x16′ 3 x 2″ (2) 1×1 x2x6″ x 6″ x 8″ (4) 4 x 1″x1″ x 4″ x 3″ (1×4) 6’x9’x13′ (5) 1 x 1/2″x2″ x 1 1/4″ x 2 1/8″ (5 x 4 x 2″) 2 1/16″ x 9 1/32″ x 10″ (6) 1/3″ x 5″ x 12″ (8) 1 1 /2″ diameter wood screws (optional), including 1 1⁄8″ screws (6 screws) Note: This tent can be made out of a lot more than 1 x 4 foot of lumber.
