Yes, I present to you the perfect portrait of Papa Bear! Based in Bend, Oregon, Mark and Kelly Harro are working artists with a flair for the bear--and also proud owners of a teardrop trailer that they built themselves.

Two artists living in the beautiful nature of America's West, what was needed was a mobile office, a utility trailer, a home on wheels--in other words, a teardrop trailer. And so they built "Betty," using Pinterest designs and recycled auto parts.
This labor of love was built on a utility trailer the Harros already owned, and was a fulfilling project, although it was not easy. Mark said he lost a lot of hair during the process! A full chronicle of the building of "Betty" is at DoItYourselfRV, "Montana Artists Build Teardrop Trailer Using Wrecked Auto Parts." It's a thorough article and includes more great photographs.
For those of you who would like to hear the Harros tell their story, below is a great YouTube video of their journey (6:55 minutes).

The teardrop galley was the most difficult and time-consuming part of construction for the Harros. In this photo, notice the dish towel has a print from their art collection. The curtains utilize Papa Bear. From top to bottom, this teardrop is a product of the Harros' creative lives. "Betty" is truly a work of art, all by herself.
