Have an old Jayco Popup how do I...

I have an old Jacob popup and want to take it apart and rebuild it to make a tear drop. how do I begin. I am an old,young lady who knows how to drive a big rig, but I don't know a technical word about a car, camper or other. I know how to get the top off. And anything I pull off, but what happens next.I will post a picture.

I have seen a few homebuilt tear drop trailers, some good, some not so. They all seemed to start with a bare frame though. Here are a few sites to give you some idea of what you will encounter as well as what skills you will learn during your build.

How To Build A Teardrop Trailer For Two

Teardrop and Other Trailer Designs

There are plenty of other sites if you google tear drop trailer plans (pdf)

Have fun with your project.

Keep in mind that canvas is light. Wood is heavy. Make sure you weigh the wood you plan to use and do not overload the axle and tires.
