Where I Come From

Road Tested

Hello! I’m Andy, an RV and trailer design engineer and small trailer enthusiast. I’ve been designing and building small utility and RV travel trailer chassis for over a decade.

I’ve worked with everything from 8-ft teardrop trailers to 24-foot tiny home chassis – and I’m still learning something new every day!

In the future, Template Trailers will sell professional-grade trailer plans for DIY bolt-together aluminum trailers. In the meantime, please enjoy my blog content!
