Teardrop Trailer – Additional Bedroom

You’re living in your tiny dream home and than you find out you have company coming. Now where to put them? You could pitch a tent or rent a motel room, or you could make or buy a Teardrop trailer that will hold your guest just fine for a couple of days plus provide you a getaway tiny RV if you get the urge to go to the mountains or the coast.

Teardrop trailers based upon the designs of the 40’s and 50’s, BIG WOODY CAMPERS are built to provide years of enjoyment and a “look” that will turn heads whether it’s towed behind a classic car or modern vehicle.


These sturdy, durable teardrop trailers are lightweight and can be pulled behind any size car. There is no need for electric brakes or extended mirrors. The “cabin” is 4′ x 6′ or longer, and sleeps two people comfortably. A futon mattress fits comfortably, or try a mattress and cover from Knox Foam. The rear “galley” is your “kitchen on wheels” and can be as simple or as elegant as you choose.

There are many Teardrop choices, listed below are a few options:



You might also consider Jay Shafer’s Vardo as an option. Although the Vardo does not have a kitchen, it has storage under the bed that would hold your stove and cooler.

  1. Teardrop campers are cute. It’s a dryer alternative to pitching a tent in the rain. I’m doubt that you’d need a big gas guzzling car to tow one too. I’m partial to the retro models.

  2. To add additional living space to your Teardrop Trailer check out the line of 30 Second OzTents, Australian designed and now available in the U.S. Options are available to provide privacy and additional weather protection.

    • Hi Randy –

      We are interested in seeing some of these up close but as far as we can tell, they are available only in Minnesota?

Hello all teardropers, nice to see the t-trailers going strong as ever , built teardrop trailers for years ,” loved it ” I had to retire from a accident in 2002 I couldn’t do the work , sold my shop and left over parts , I was going to set up a parts store on line and plans then got busy doing other things , the part I like the best was the people I met over the years , teardrop camping is so much fun !! Having fun in life is what it was all about everyday !!

    • Hi Brian,

      I bought a tear drop from you about six years ago in Langley. Could you please get in touch with me. Your phone number I had for you is no longer in service. Thank you,
