Re: Trailer camps
We started out with a 19' camper on our camp land, then used the small "tenant" house over on my uncle's farm for several years.
When Unc decided to sell that little house to a neighboring farmer's kid, we pre-cut a 12x20 building at home, hauled all the materials up on three pickups/two trailers and put it up over three days, on block piers. Took several other trips that fall to finish the new camp, but it was done in time for deer season that year.
Some years later, built an addition on a block crawl space foundation (indoor plumbing/bath) and redid the original piers (concrete pads under them) for the 12x20 building, which is now the kitchen/living room part of camp.
Little extra work to pre-cut, haul and build the 12x20 on site, as opposed to having a similar building hauled in, but worth it.
