I wanted a Fiberglass Teardrop trailer, but I had to settle for Plastic ( Polystyrene? )..........Oh well, it's waterproof and won't rust or rot!

American Teardrop?

If so, we had some really good information about this particular tiny trailer. Unfortunately we lost all that information in the hack So while it may not fit the absolute focus of FiberglassRV, I think we can all say .... Too cool, hope to see more pictures in the future!

What is the make and model of your new, cool little trailer?
I haven't seen anything like it around here... even at the Tampa RV Supershow last month.
I hope you enjoy your new purchase! It has beautiful lines, and looks like fun!

Cool and unique looking.

I figure all camper owners are welcome, just don't get bored if all we seem to talk about is fiberglass.

Donna, It is manufactured by Teardrop American, Inc. according to the VIN plaque on the tongue. I think there is actually another manufacturer called American Teardrop that is in business today? Doug

The title and the VIN plaque say that it is an '89. Manufactured by Teardrop American, Inc. No model that I can find? Doug

I'm sure glad I looked at the full sized picture. From the thumbnail it looked like a frog type fishing lure.
I briefly imagined that with a few spots painted on in the right locations one might be tempted to call it the
"Off Road Toad".

Interesting, very interesting! Thanks for sharing.
