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 500/550/560 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.
