First question: What is a Teardrop Trailer?
“Teardrop trailers are camping trailers that were popular from the ’30s to the ’50s. They typically sleep two inside, and have a galley under a rear hatch. From there, the possibilities are endless. Thousands of home builders and a dozen commercial builders have come up with a myriad of modifications and customizations. Fat fenders, skinny fenders, pop-up roofs, walk-in kitchens, windows, doors, you name it. There can be fifty teardrops at a gathering, and no two are alike.” — Kuffel Creek
Next question: Where did you get the plans?
Here’s the photos of the teardrop trailer build.
Then: What on earth made you want to build one?
Waking up in a puddle one too many times. Slugs. Waiting for a dry spell to set up the tent so it can dry. Thunderstorms.
No, really: what made you want to build one?
The challenge. Wanted to see if I could. Slugs. Really, those little buggers fell in love with our tent, I have no idea why, but there’s only so many of them you can deal with at once.
