These guys just sponsored my niece. I haven't had a chance to check the trailer out yet, but it looks interesting. 1535 lbs dry with a 940 lb carrying capacity.

That could be really cool when done. The late lamented VespaFitz posted some about small campers similar to that one.

It was great for a couple of folks if they were sleeping alone on the front and rear bunks. The rear bunk was a "double" but was a bit cramped for my wife and I (not that we're fat - just a bit heftier than we were when we got married).

The wife liked the camper but really wanted one with an on board bathroom. We went to a fiberglass camper meet last fall and got a chance to look at a couple of 16' Casita trailers. They are much nicer with a slightly wider bunk and a full bath. Those weigh around 1600-1800 lbs and that's probably what we'll move up to.

The 17" Casita has a much larger rear bed - but weighs around 2200 lbs.

I like that set up.

Sisters on the Fly

Check out these women. A couple of years ago they had their annual roundup at a local lake and had an open house. Some very cool stuff.

Sero Scotty



That is a good looking trailer. Nice classic appeal.

Tiny Trillium

I had this little gem for about four years and eventually outgrew it. Very tiny inside and like the Scamp can sleep two in front/back bunks, had a fridge, two burner stove, heater(which would blast you out) small closet and two small over stove pantrys. Additional storage under all the bunks which came in handy...
Pulled it everywhere with a Chevy S-10, 4 cyl with no problems.
You have to be careful when buying these, the suspension will go downhill and need replacing, all the windows will need pulling and resealing to keep leaks out and most take quite a bit of work to bring up to snuff.
The factory is still making them these days so parts aren't hard to get but the newer models now have bathrooms.

My sis and her ex lived in one of those on a Vermont hillside one summer. The experience significantly sped up the work making the house habitable.

Yeah, I imagine any of these for long term would get old fast. But for a weekend or even a couple of weeks. - a bed, a kitchen, a place to retreat to from mosquitos... but not so big that you lose what camping is all about.

Towed this one 25,000 miles so far.

You do not live inside a tear drop, you sleep and maybe read inside, maybe if the weather is truly horrible you watch a movie.

What you do is put a easy-up over the kitchen and enjoy being out of doors when it rains.

Camp inn : www.tinycamper.com

Not cheap by any means but without a doubt the most complete teardrop on the market. Solid.

3 basic models and a variety of finish options. We have everything except for the TV and the furnace.

I've looked at the Basecamp - WAY too heavy and too complicated inside.

Stop posting it.

I have this. And it will be for sale soon

I got this last spring but with my new job I won't be using it much for a few years. May be for sale to the right buyer. I live in Colorado.... We had a popup for several years and hated it: problem in the wind, had to disconnect from car in order to open it. The little hard sided campers rock. No bathroom (porta potty), sink, stove, fridge (never used), heat, and ceiling fan. Double bed is also the dining table. Quaint.

1982 Burro. 13' long, 10' body. Weight right about 1000 lbs. Can't even feel it on a Subaru.
