A home-built camper with a old-fashioned Mail Coach theme.
Tony passed on his links to me to share with the vardo community. When I first saw the giant wooden wheels I thought it was a stationary sculpture piece for the back garden. These actually remove for travel and are really just for show.
I’m always glad to see someone’s concept sketches as I have filled notebooks with these myself over the years.
Tony’s web page guides you through the entire process in photos (newest to oldest) so you can learn from his build.
Note the “dead” space in the ledges as it becomes important storage later.
Straight forward off-the-shelf hardware is used throughout including things like Simpson Strong Ties for the rafter connections.
It’s a pretty whimsical design and I think this photo sums that up nicely.
Storage door closed.
Door open to reveal a very long drawer.
A simple rustic look inside fills the bill and looks quite functional.
The little stove removes and stores in it’s own locker for travel.
If you are looking to build your own camper, vardo, or other living wagon, you can’t have enough great ideas so get over to Tony’s website and have a look:
There are tons of photos and some great ideas there.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great advice from a great thinker. Life is short and it’s easy to forget those important people in our lives; until it’s too late.
“Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten.”

This advice will go a long way towards happiness. It isn’t an excuse to be selfish or uncaring of others but to find who you are and what you want to be. A path we’re all on.
“Be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else’s idea of yourself should be.”
