Build of the Month: AlumEscape

Few things provide greater inspiration to a home builder that reading along with a fellow home builder’s project, and Portal member 2012Taco’s aluminum-skinned backcountry bedroom is no exception. The ground-up build starts with a sturdy chassis riding on a custom air bag suspension design, with accommodations for sleeping, galley, water/fuel storage, tables, and even a sound system. Follow along with the build in progress in the Expedition Trailers forum.
