Many might not have ever thought of such a novelty, but it could be the perfect way to embrace the outdoors. Whether for you or for someone you know who may be tying the knot, it could be the perfect way to celebrate for some.
This is the story of a solo female living and traveling with a teardrop trailer for around a decade now! It all started in 2007, when she decided to hop on a Harley Davidson motorcycle with her teardrop camper (named tick tack) in tow. With the motor cycle, she would get around 30 miles per gallon (while towing the teardrop).
Today she’s towing it with something a bit more practical, and very likely just as economic on fuel. It’s a Volkswagen Beetle with a TDI diesel engine. That’s right, it’s a diesel Beetle! These are known to get somewhere around 50 miles per gallon, although I’m sure a teardrop camper reduces that to a significant degree, but I’m sure she isn’t complaining about it. Anyhow, hear all about it, and learn more about Jaclyn’s incredible lifestyle below! And tell me, would you ever consider doing something outlandishly awesome like this?
This is Margot the Teardrop Camper. She’s a lightweight and aerodynamic teardrop camper rental in Sherwood, Oregon near Portland. At just 1,200 pounds dry weight, you can probably tow it with almost any vehicle.
I learned about them thanks to Jenna over at Tiny House Giant Journey who posted about them on her Instagram and so I was excited to share it with you because it looks like a great solution for a lightweight travel trailer that looks and feels like a tiny house or cabin. What do you think?
This is an expanding teardrop camper by Chuki Timeless Teardrop Caravans. They are a small teardrop builder in Great Britain.
These classic little campers are fantastic because they are super lightweight so you can tow them with just about any vehicle. And in this case, some of these little micro-campers even expand… Sort of like slide-outs in an RV. Check it out!
This is a tiny wood teardrop camper that’s for sale (SOLD) out of Fort Meade, Florida.
It was designed to stand alone when we needed to use our utility trailer. Each of the six legs are notched and bolted into the 4″x4″ base frame of the camper and can easily be removed to slide onto the rails of the trailer and bolted again.
Take a look below and let us know what you think about it in the comments. Thanks!
From the outside, you’ll notice a highly polished wooden tiny camper with a sturdy roof rack that can carry two kayaks. According to their website, you can buy the kit and build it yourself, even if you have little or no experience. When you go inside, you’ll find space for someone up to 6 ft. 8 in. tall to sit up and lay down to sleep. In the rear, there’s a hatch that opens to reveal a small stove and plenty of storage space for your gear. All in all, it’s designed to be better than tent camping and can conveniently be pulled by almost any vehicle.
From the outside, you’ll notice the iconic teardrop shape combined with the classic cabin look and feel. When you go inside, you’ll be surprised to find enough sleeping for four people, a bathroom, and a full kitchen!
