    Default Casual Turtle Campers

    I saw this camper at the Safeway in Spearfish this weekend http://casualturtlecampers.com/ . I didn't have time to check it out but luckily my neighbor did and found this link. It's an interesting looking camper and I wish I had had the time to check it out.

    I'm in Old Town Fort Collins, and I'm pretty sure this guy lives right down the street. I've seen him working on one of these campers out in his driveway as I drove by. I might have to stop by one of these afternoons and say hi. From a quick glance they certainly are beautiful!

    I love the lines of the roof.... and the wood look... but it looks HEAVY with so much wood... I wonder what it weighs?

    I went through the CT website prose. reminded me of the wordsmithing used in real estate advertising.

    probably doesn't weigh too much because there doesn't appear to be any systems in place.

    In the tiny house article it says it is 910 lbs as pictured (with no water or power systems I suspect)...

    I do like the way they look... kinda hard to ruin the lines of the roof with a solar module though... also no roof vent?

    Looks nice. Not something for me. However I am still intrigued. Never seen one.
