Teardrop trailers have become one the latest fun ways to travel. They are light and portable and for a couple that likes to take spontaneous camping trips, you can’t find a better way. They were the only way to travel 50 years ago, and have re-emerged in the last 10-15 years.
This iconic style of traveling is becoming popular again because of how easy they are to use and the freedom they offer. They don’t take a huge pick-up to tote them either – just about any size car can be set up to pull a teardrop trailer.
The average size of a teardrop trailer is about eight feet by four feet and has room for a half-sized bed. This is just enough room for two people! Inside a teardrop trailer is some creative storage by way of pull-out drawers, lift up cushions, and fold-up tables and chairs. Many come with an awning you can pull out when camping to give you some sheltered outdoor area, just like the patio at home.

A teardrop trailer is a great way to camp and travel, but not for more than two people.
A family is not going to have enough room unless you pack a tent for a spill-over sleeping area. And there isn’t much storage room for dishes and food, either. If you’ve ever traveled with kids, you know you’re going to need dishes, food, and plenty of space.
