Conceived more than 60 years ago, a teardrop trailer is a small lightweight camping trailer in the shape of a teardrop, designed for 2+ people. Our teardrop trailers have interior cabinet storage and a kitchen galley under the rear hatch.

Aerodynamic, lightweight and insulated against the elements, our teardrop trailers can be towed by just about any vehicle, with minimal impact on fuel economy due to its light weight and shape.

With battery powered lights, electric outlets for modern conveniences, and a kitchen galley, the luxuries of home are easily enjoyed on the road in a teardrop trailer.

With room for 2+ people to sleep, and storage for gear and clothing, the rear hatch opens to a cooking galley with an LP stove, and additional storage for water, and food.

This excellent video from Kirsten Dirksen sums up the benefits of a teardrop.
