Hatch ceiling, lights and more! | How to build a Teardrop Trailer #20

Wow. That came together nicely. I am so happy to have the hatch complete! No more temp brace anymore and added a light!

🎥 It was a late night but I got the hatch completed yesterday! Posted a video on my #youtube #teardroptrailer #teardropcamper #diy #woodworking

I mentioned it in the video but I think it’s fair to say again, when installing the springs, make sure you leave enough room for the hatch to close.. in my example 2in was the thickness of the hatch! Fortunately, I had some wood putty that matches perfectly and no one will every notice my mistake… 😀

Watch the whole build process! (Grab some popcorn first)
