What is a Teardrop?

A Teardrop is a compact travel trailer consisting of a sleeping cabin and a kitchen compartment. The Camp-Inn is styled after teardrop travel trailers from the 1930's and 1940's. A Teardrop gets its name from its unique streamlined shape. Teardrops were popular in the 1930-40ís and have recently been regaining popularity.
Their streamlined shape, small size and low weight allowed for easy pulling by the under-100-horsepower engines of the 1930-40's. Today, with ever rising gas prices, the Teardrop means better gas mileage and no need for a gas-guzzling truck or large SUV. Teardrops can be pulled easily by a midsize family car or smaller SUV. The Camp-Inn trailer weighs as little as 850 lb. and as little as 130 lb. tongue weight.
Although Teardrops are small, they have more than enough room for 2-3 people. The Camp-Inn sleeping cabin holds a queen-size bed on 550 and 560 models. There is also room for storage of your gear. The sleeping cabin is hard sided and topped, eliminating the need for set up or tear-down. The sleeping cabin can double as storage/cargo space during travel.
The kitchen area is accessible from the outside rear of the trailer. The kitchen compartment has ample storage space for a cooler, dry-goods, portable stove, cooking and eating equipment and utensils. The Camp-Inn kitchen has 5 feet of countertop and loads of storage. The kitchen can be used with minimal setup. It even works well for a quick meal at a roadside rest area.
