How To Choose A Teardrop Trailer

Prosser's | 08/04/2021

Seeking a recreational vehicle that you can tow behind the car you already own? The teardrop trailer is extremely lightweight with a compact and aerodynamic design that allows it to be easily towed behind most passenger vehicles. These trailers have a very small footprint so they’ll fit on any campsite and they can be stored easily in your garage when not in use.

If you’re curious about what a teardrop trailer can offer you, then you’ve come to the right place! Your friends here at Prosser RV in Sturtevant have detailed the benefits of teardrop trailers below so you can make an informed purchasing decision.

A teardrop trailer generally is constructed on a steel chassis with two wheels and a bumper-pull hitch. They are anywhere from 4 to 6 feet wide and 8 to 10 feet long. They are often no taller than 5 feet, which may present a challenge for very tall campers.

The exteriors were traditionally wood or postwar scrap aluminum, but they now may be constructed from lightweight fiberglass or other materials with better insulating properties.

Inside, you’ll find a bed, storage space for clothes and belongings, a little room to stand, a small galley (kitchen) and maybe a chemical toilet, depending on the model. Power for the lights and appliances inside may be supplied by a battery or by power hook-ups. Layouts may vary between brands, so you’ll want to look at several styles to see what might suit you best.

The best thing about teardrop trailers is how lightweight and streamlined they area. With dry weights generally under 1000 pounds, nearly any passenger vehicle can easily tow them without sacrificing much gas mileage. You’ll find sway is reduced with these small trailers and that it’s easier to learn how to tow with them than larger RVs.

When you’re traveling alone or with one other person, you may not want or need all the extra space and amenities of a much larger trailer. You also may be on a tighter budget and want to camp in comfort without breaking the bank. Teardrop trailers give you everything you need in a small, well-designed space where every square inch is maximized to its full potential.
