Teardrop Camper For Sale
I got to thinking about (and looking for!) a teardrop camper for sale last night, when a tiny home-built teardrop pulled into the show ground… it was a windy, blustery afternoon so they had to find a sheltered spot so they could cook their dinner without the wind whipping out the flame.
We managed to find them a good spot, but it also got me thinking about teardrop campers, and whether I would ever buy one for us.
So, of course, I start thinking about the pros and cons, and looking for a teardrop camper for sale online!
The pros and cons are pretty very easy to define and they’re at opposite ends of the spectrum, but each of the pros and cons are pretty compelling!
- Small – okay, this is obvious, but being so small means that they can go almost anywhere
- Super light weight – you can pull a teardrop trailer with almost any vehicle
- Have most things you need – a warm bed, cooking facilities, somewhere to retreat in the rain
- Price – these things are cheap… well, compared to a travel trailer they’re cheap. But not as cheap as a tent!
- Small – can’t stand up in a tear drop camper, so you may get cabin fever if the weather is bad
- Outside living – it’s basically just a bedroom so you’ll be doing most of your living outside (which can also be a ‘pro’!)
- No bathroom – so you may be limited to staying in campgrounds that have facilities
I immediately go online and start searching (as I do) and came up with this list of teardrop campers for sale that you could buy now.
It's funny how in the RV industry we have some pretty vague classifications. My idea of a teardrop camper is basically a bed on wheels, with the added benefit of a kitchen on the outside. Oh, and in the shape of a tear drop, of course.
But some manufacturers call anything that's in the shape of a teardrop, a teardrop camper. Even though they've got a kitchen inside, and a bathroom! I suppose, they are actually correct, it IS in the shape of a tear drop.
But for this list, I'm just looking at those that have the bed inside and the kitchen outside.
You know, those tiny ones...

The Teardrop Camper Company
Let's start with an Australian manufacturer (since that's what comes up first in google, for me).
The Grand Tourer 'GT' by The Teardrop Camper Company comes with all the standard teardrop stuff.
See more pictures and different models on their website.
nuCamp teardrop campers
You may already be familiar with nuCamp. I've already swooned over their T@B trailers over here, but they also have the T@G and T@G XL tear drop trailers.
These are very stylish little campers, with luxuries like TV and air-con! And plenty of upgrades for going off-grid if you want to.
You can see lots more photos and models, over on the nuCamp website.
Now across to Lithuania where they're building these great, little Teardrops.
They have the MINI (above)
you can order a DIY kit from them, and build your own teardrop camper!
How cool is that!
Get all the details over on the TinyCamper.eu website.
The beautiful Classic Cabin from Timberleaf Trailers makes me feel like you're really experiencing the rough and rugged outdoors... without too much of that uncomfortable rough and ruggedness!
She looks a beauty, doesn't she! And fit's right into her natural environment.
See more pictures, details and specs over at Timberleaftrailers.com
Vintage Overland teardrop trailers
You can tell just from the pictures that Vintage Overland take great pride in crafting each of their teardrop campers.
See these beautiful designs and read the story of how they got started over at: www.vintageoverland.com
This is what a teardrop would look like if there were no curves in the world...
And what a great little design this is!
Find out all the features of this little beauty over on the Polydrops website.
Escapod tear drop campers
These teardrops are built for rugged adventure!
See all the details over on the Escapod website.
Little Guy Trailers
Little Guy have some great looking trailers that are in the tear drop shape. But they're much bigger than what we're looking for in this list. (i.e. they are more than just a bed inside and a kitchen outside).
However, they do have the MyPod, which is a cute little teardrop... that's not quite in the teardrop shape.
It might be what you're looking for though. More details on the Little Guy Trailers website.
The Bushwhacker teardrop by Braxton Creek is designed for adventurers that like to get away from it all.
There's also a larger version that is more like your conventional bumper pull trailer. You can see all the details over on the Braxton Creek website.
Oh, these are cute little teardrops! Their tagline is 'Iconic style, modern comfort, exceptional craftsmanship'.
See the Vistabule website for all the details.
For all the details, head to the Colarado Teardops website.
High Camp Trailers
These little beauties have the classic tear drop shape that I love, but with the addition of a roof rack, you're then able to add a couple of awnings, and that dramatically increases the amount of outdoor space you can use even when it's raining.
They've got a lot more photos over on HighCampTrailers.com
With a well equipped kitchen on the back, and a sleeping area that converts to a table setup, The Steel & Steel HC makes a great adventure camper.
Get all the specs and details of the Aero Teardrops Steel & Steel HC camper on their website.
The Classic Bean may have quite a retro look about it on the outside, but inside it's modern and sleek. With slightly bigger dimensions that most teardrops (according to their website) the Bean makes teardrop camping comfortable too.
See all the Bean Trailers over on their website.
The Oasis doesn't have those nice curves like most other teardrop campers do, but it is still in the classic shape. And I wanted to include it in this lineup because it's an example of a bare bones, no frills camper. There's room to add the improvements that you want, instead of paying for a camper that has features you may not care about.
Check out the Oasis by TC Teardrop here.
Rift Carbon Camper
Here's something a little different for you. Rift are a small yet tough little teardrop, and what makes them so tough is that they're made from carbon fibre. That is also what makes them super light. Less than 500 pounds.
Find out all about the Rift Carbon Camper on their website.
Oregon Trail'R have 5 different models of teardrop trailer, and the lightest/smallest/plainest(?) is the diminutive FronTear.
Find out about the FronTear and the other trailers in the Oregon Trail'R range on their website.
Sorta kinda Teardrop Campers that you may like to consider...
Following are a couple of campers that are small and light, but don't quite fit my criteria above, of being basically a bed, with a kitchen outside.
But if you're interested in teardrop trailers, these may still fit the bill for you.
Earth Traveler Teardrop Trailers
These futuristic looking campers really are the future IMO, and they can be customized in dozens of different ways. They just don't have the kitchen galley on the back of the trailer like all the others (but you can add a kitchen unit).
Are you inspired to consider your RV travels in a teardrop camper?
Why I love teardrop campers
I love the fact that teardrop campers are so small.
They enable you to have a comfortable and warm bed for the night and you don't have to put up a tent.
You have the convenience of a kitchen, even if it is outdoors.
Yet it's small enough to be towed by almost any vehicle. You can have comfort, without having to upgrade to a gas guzzling beast.
I would consider a teardrop trailer perfect for us if we were on a short vacation or, a longer vacation if it was in mild temperatures.
But definitely not for our full-time RV life.
Does this make you want to hop straight online and look for a teardrop camper for sale?
