The Yellow Teardrop Trailer
The idea of a teardrop trailer as a temporary home or a guest room for a tiny home owner, seemed to be a popular post the last time we wrote about it. The buzz around my life lately is about my new bright yellow teardrop trailer.
The new tear is a Pleasant Valley Lil Traveler Teardrop. They are built by Amish craftsman in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
The large, dual-locking side entry doors have screened tinted glass-sliding windows. The interior features natural birch wood walls, ceiling and overhead storage cabinets. A fan located in the galley pulls fresh air into the sleeping area. The wooden interior produces the retro look of the originals from the 1930s and 1940s. The lockable rear full length hatch opens to a full hardwood kitchen, complete with doors and drawers allowing ample cooking space. This teardrop is 5 ft wide by 8 ft long but they also come in 4×8 and 5×10 sizes. They weigh between 760 and 1,160 pounds and can be towed by most cars.
The battery to run the lights and the plugs in the galley and the sleeping area is located inside the galley cabinet, but you can also have the battery strapped to the front of the teardrop utility platform.
What drew me to this particular teardrop was the size, roominess, and of course, the color. Pleasant Valley is known for their bright “Spirit” model which comes in red, green, blue, and yellow. They also have a regular silver model.
Pleasant Valley also offers a larger travel trailer called the Pleasant Traveler which are between 14 and 16 feet long.
