Depending upon the model and options—each WeGo camper trailer takes roughly 150 hours to build. We make a handful at a time, a new run finished every couple months or so. If you placed an order today, your trailer could be available in 6-8 weeks.
With the exception of the discover, WeGo campers start as sheets of 3/4″ Baltic Birch. All structural components are CNC machined for a tight, consistent fit. Then assembled using Titebond II, Water-Proof wood glue and 2″ screws. Lots and LOTS of screws.
The bottom plate is made of water resistant marine plywood, and once attached, the under side of the cabin assembly is covered with ToughGrade polyethylene underbelly fabric.
The look of bare baltic birch is pretty, which is where other camper manufactures stop. But, considering its minimal size, we think a more “open” and brighter interior affect is necessary, which we create with high-quality bamboo paneling. For increased water resistance the floor and cabinets are covered with marine-quality vinyl material.
The roof and rear hatch door use a semimonocoque construction. The ceiling, 1/8″ thin line birch, is first installed, then baltic ply ribs and sheet foam insulation, and topped with 1/8″ ply.
Finally, the exterior skin of CNC cut fiberglas filon sheet is installed.
Before we put on the aluminum trim, all corners where the fiberglass skin meets(under where the trim will go) are given a bead of silicone caulk. In fact, every square inch that can have caulk sealer–does have caulk sealer. We want no water getting where it isn’t supposed to be.
Appliances, windows and doors are dry fit and electrical is run. All lights and connections are tested.
At this point we have a basic cabin assembly ready to be installed onto a trailer frame.
Once mated together the final assembly takes place. Any plumbing is installed. If included, the sink/stove, shower, propane tanks, side steps, fenders, rack and solar panels are all installed.
Lights and amenities are tested. Then tested again.
The hatch is fitted and installed. And lights are tested yet again.
The details, interior panels, exterior decals, and cabinet drawers are installed.
At last the refrigerator, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit are installed.
And finally, the vin plate is put on.
