Teardrop campers, once popular in the 1920-40’s, have started to become very trendy again. Besides looking cool, they are also a great option for those looking for a lightweight camping trailer. Tear drops are inexpensive, self-contained, easy to tow, and they provide enough room for two people to comfortably sleep inside.
While there are a number of companies that manufacture and sell these teardrop campers, their popularity is largely due to the fact that they are extremely easy to build and customize. In fact, over the last couple of years, there has been a resurgence in the customization of vintage teardrops. People from around the world are buying up old vintage teardrop campers, and restoring them to their original condition.
Although Teardrops are small, most have more than enough room for two people. Most teardrops campers feature:
- A sleeping area that can hold a queen-size bed
- A storage area for your gear
- A sleeping cabin that doubles as a cargo area
- An outside rear kitchen area with storage and cooking space
