The summer camping season is starting to heat up and for those Tiny House Blog visitors who are lamenting the loss of the tiny Retro Traveler, the Toad Camper is a nice and affordable alternative to the ultra lightweight trailer. Toad Campers are built by hand in North Carolina with the best American-made products and can be towed by most 4-cylinder vehicles. What I thought was a typo, was that the campers start out at $2,999 for a basic streamlined weekend trailer.


The company offers four basic models: the Micro, Micro XL, Tadpole, and 20-foot Bull Frog. Each of these models have very flexible floor plan arrangements including small bathrooms with showers, full or queen beds or bunk beds. They also come with the following features:

  • Heavy duty axle with bearing buddies
  • Insulated frame
  • 13″ Radial tires
  • Laminate flooring
  • Various color choices
  • Microwave, refrigerator, air conditioner and flat-screen TVs
  • Wash station or full kitchen
  • Central roof vent
  • Durable rubber roof

The Toad Camper company also offers their trailers as rentals so you can test drive their different sized options. They also build custom trailers for just about any other kind of use including kayak trailers, refreshment trailers and restroom trailers.

    I love these just wish there was more information on their website. I drive a 4 cylinder and want to know if it just pulls that teeny tiny one? and what is the one that is 2nd from the left?
    Wondering if anyone will answer our questions. :)

      Thanks for your interest Jeanie. Have you called or emailed the company with your questions? I think the company also refurbishes and sells additional trailers: the second on in the photo is a Serro Scotty.

    The prices have gone up; nothing they sell now starts at $2999. Still a great deal, though.

        The pricing and models are outdated, the facebook page has been taken down for now. If you go to the website you will find more current models and phone numbers. Best to contact them directly for pricing.

    These are very well built campers. My husband and I recently purchased a second and larger one this past summer. Our old one has served its purpose well. It has NEVER had any issues mechanically and we have been is some really bad rain storms and horrific thunderstorms and it has held its ground. I could not have been more pleased. These are far better quality than the “cookie cutter” manufactured campers. The insulation, floors, countertops etc are all wonderfully made. You won’t be disappointed.
