Our latest project is a little teardrop trailer. A teardrop is like a cross between a midget caravan and a tent. It’s got room for a double bed in the cabin, and an outdoor kitchenette – and not a hell of a lot more.
Back in the 30s and 40s teardrops were a common DIY project, people bought kits and put them together in their backyards…we want to try and recapture a little of that DIY spirit.
I’m going to post our designs, plans and build pics here. Please feel free to comment or ask for more detail – especially if you’re doing your own teardrop build!
