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 one of these 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 them, 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…

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.
