Teardrop Trailer Body CNC Files and Guide - 5' x 8' Lite

“You can download the CNC files for a teardrop trailer body and start making your camper in a matter of minutes.

When I built my first teardrop in 2007, CNC was still pretty hard for most DIYers to access.  Now, you can download the same trailer that started Overland Trailer as a company in 2008 and make it with your own machine at home at the same level of precision and quality as a manufactured trailer.”

– Mark Janke (Owner at Overland Trailer)

Design Options

These files can be mixed and matched to make three different body options:

  1. The 58 Heald Lite – Our classic manufactured teardrop with an internal roof skin that has clean lines and spars that are placed for optimal use of materials and look.
  2. The Roof Profile Only – This design gives flexibility to install roof spars anywhere it works.  Use this design to make room for a big skylight, window, or other appliance while keeping a clean insulated interior roof.
  3. The Roof Spar Only Profile – This design allows a builder to make the teardrop lighter by removing the interior skin and insulation while keeping a vintage and clean look on the inside of the cabin.

  • 4 sheets – 4′ x 8′ x 3/4″ Baltic Birch (18mm)
