Please forgive me. I've read this web site frequently but have forgotten whether Teardrop trailers are included. I have a splitting headache from seaching far-and-wide on the Internet!!!!!! No joke!

Depends on what you consider a Teardrop. To some of us it's a shape, not size and there are a couple trailers that may fall into that category. American Teardrop and perhaps the Miti-Lite. This forum is dedicated to Molded Lightweight Fiberglass RVs. That doesn't mean some fiberglass, or slab fiberglass panels put together with seams.

If you're looking for the Teardrop forum, click here:
Teardrops & Tiny Travel Trailers

Did that help?

If it's general RV info you are looking for, take a look at RV.NET -- They have stuff for BulgeMobiles to tenters.

Hi Donna -- Yes, that was a big help!! I'm looking at a "Little Guy Teardrop." It is the teardrop shape and molded from fiberglass. I saw it on e-Bay. I don't need a kitchen with stove & refrigerator. I am a "vegan" and eat primarilly fresh, raw, fruits and vegetables. I mainly want a place to sleep because of all the horror stories about how dirty the beds are in hotels and motels. I don't want to sleep in someone else's filth!! I've felt empty since I sold my Class B mini-motorhome in September. I want to travel but I don't want the expense (and unsanitary conditions) of a hotel / motel. Another question that you can answer: If I buy the teardrop, can I, perhaps, join campouts with folks owning Casita, Trillium, etc.?? I can show pictures to fellow campers that I once owned a Trillium. Been there, done that!! Thanks for your reply. Best wishes from Lorraine

To answer part of your questions, no the Little Guy is not a molded fiberglass trailer, I'm only telling you this so you won't expect one thing and find out something else after the purchase. Nor am I inferring it's an inferior product in anyway. From their website

[b]Donna, you are awesome!!! THANK YOU FOR THAT RESEARCH!!! I have been on so many web sites today, my head is spinning!!! What's a gal to do??? I keep reading the message boards trying to get a clear image of the direction I should go[b]. I'm a solo senior; I don't want to give up traveling!!!

As I mentioned in the earlier message, I sold my Class B[b].... Well, I had a full-time job I loved; I thought I'd be living in this town in North Carolina the rest of my life. I was "too busy" to travel. You guessed it: I was "let go" (with six others) as part of "restructuring." Spring is coming!! I want to see North Carolina -- and the East Coast. (I was born, and spent most of my life, in Southern California. This area is beautiful and I should see it before I die[b]!!!) Thank you for your labors, and kindness, on this web site. Lorraine

The Little Guys look interesting. Nice light weight and long tongue, so they'd be towable with a lot of fuel-efficient vehicles (even have two for motorcycles).

I like the Tailgate package with the beer tap!

No kitchen?? How do you make tea or keep your fruitjuice cold? I think I would still like something to keep my bottled water in. It's really nice to have it built in and not carrying it around like a bi cooler that I have to buy Ice for. Also nice to have a food prep center that's inside out of the elements and the bugs. On the other hand that tailgate work center looks awfly good IF you can build a screen shelter for it.

Tear drops are nice but after a long hike up the beach, it is so nice to get in out of the wind and make some warm soup and to have your own bathroom in the middle of the night is so wonderful. Give me a small 13 foot over a tear drop anytime, but that may just be my age talking.

I think teardrops are "cute" but not in a very functional way for me. Living in the Pacific NorthWET, I don't want to depend on dry weather to camp. Sitting inside at a table, and getting up to walk around is kind of important. In a true teardrop... all you can do is lay down. And that's how you get dressed too.

Think I'll pass. I'd go with a 13 footer first.

I love teardrops and I was looking for one or going to build one, did the research and everything and then bumped into my Burro.
I dropped everything and bought the Burro.
No regrets at all. It's Nice to pull over at a scenic overlook area for a rest stop, open the door walk in and have lunch or potty break. Close the door and drive on. No skrunching,lifting,heaving,pushing or getting wet needed.

As you said, the kitchen is outside, just as it is when tent camping. I'm considering a teardrop because the height limitations of my garage require me to remove my Scamp's wheels to get it inside and I don't intend to live in whatever for more than a couple of weeks.

Living in Europe for a while got me out of the habit of ice and cold drinks. When I was fulltiming I use the icebox as just a cool, dry place to store stuf. I used canned stuf or shopped more often.
