Teardroppin'

So far, this is what I have been looking at. It's really nice and so far it look to be very well built. Plus it's aluminum on the outside and gives it an updated retro feel

I had a teardrop, handmade, drove behind my suburban, never even could it....needed bigger when grandkiddies came along. Had a T@b too, really liked that, infact just went to their factory. RV industry is busy.

I have built 3 teardrops and it will still be my main travel trailer. When I finish restoring my Silver Streak Clipper I will use that for closer longer stay camping trips. The link SteveH posted is the best place for teardrop info. I camp with many people that pull teardrops with very small cars. that is the main point of them. We sort of look at them as hard sided tents. Some refer to their teardrop as "a bedroom inside with a kitchen in the rear and the rest of the world is your living room". I did not see if you camp alone or with some one. A 4ft wide unit is plenty for a single person. Look for a 5ft wide for a couple. Most 5 ft units can be found at under a thousand pounds. You may also consider brakes on the trailer.

Here is mine, it is 5 X 9 and weighs about 900lbs.

Great thread - photos and links are appreciated. I always wanted to build one but like someone pointed out already, too low on the list to likely make it to reality. Meanwhile its fun to see others into it.

The Mini and a teardrop trailer sound like a cool teaming.

Bluestar. That is a beauty you built!

Saw this homemade one in Roswell NM. WOW what craftsmanship!

Camp Inn

We had a Camp Inn teardrop for over 2 years. They're aluminum sided -- that's what led us to the Airstream. Towed it with a Jeep Wrangler (2 door). We spent 10 weeks touring Eastern Canada in it.

Thanks for the kind words. There are some beautiful teardrops out there. Most made by regular people. The movement has really caught on so now there are many factory built teardrops to choose from. Camp Inn makes the best teardrop on the market. I camp regularly with the owners of the company. Most of their camping friends are their customers. How many manufactures spend their free time with their customers? You have to be very confident with your product to face your customers on your days off.
