affordable teardrop campersFeatured: TC Teardrops 5x8 Trailer

If you’re not already familiar with today’s selection of teardrop trailers, there’s alot of manufacturers that have taken their well-known design and function to a whole other level. However if you are familiar, you’ve probably seen that many of these are not necessarily an affordable teardrop trailer, coming with a stout price tag of $10K, $15K, even $20K.  If you’re a couple or individual in the market for a new teardrop camper, here’s a list of some affordable teardrop trailers to consider that come in under the $7,000 mark:

TC Teardrops (Pictured Above)

Based in Wisconsin, TC Teardrops base model called the “Oasis”, has a range of 5 different affordable teardrop trailers that fall between $4,500-$6,500 and range in size from 4’x8′ all the way up to 5’x10′. Beyond this, TCTeardrops has upgraded models as well that fall below, or just over the $7K mark. Not only are these some really visually unique and appealing teardrops, there’s a laundry list of standard features included. Here’s some of the highlights:

  • Powder-coated sides with the option of 188 different colors.
  • Aluminum diamond plate roof and fenders
  • 2 tinted windows and doors with screens
  • LED lighting: interior and exterior

Tiny Teardrops and “Canned Spam”

Originally, we came across Tiny Camper Company due to an affordable, unique teardrop design they offered, cleverly called “Canned Spam” due to its shape. This allowed for full stand up space inside. (see pic below).

Today, Tiny offers 6 different base teardrop models that range from $5,000-$6,400.  This includes a “Classic Sleeper” style that comes in a 4’x8’ or 5’x8’ size, fitted for standard travel or upgraded to “rugged” for off-road purposes.  Tiny’s “Rugged Rhino” model is more of a squaredrop styling and the company’s most popular model. As the name alludes, this trailer exterior is coated with Rhino Liner, making it incredibly durable. Lots of amenities and features offered in these teardrops, and larger models available above the $7K mark.

Star City Teardrops

All of Star City Teardrops base models (3 of them) come in between $4,000-$6,000.  These are also very lightweight trailers, thanks to lightweight materials used, including a custom, aircraft-grade aluminum frame. Star City Teardrops clearly states that their teardrop trailers “can be towed by small auto such as Honda, Subaru, Miata, Mini Cooper, Fiat 500, Chevy Cruze, etc.” What I personally like about these teardrop trailers is their practicality for the price, including all of the following as standard features:

  • Leveling jacks in the rear, swivel jack in the front
  • Memory foam mattress
  • Interior/exterior LED lights
  • Baltic Birch Plywood interior
  • Entire exterior coated in epoxy sealer. Underside waterproof coating
  • Quiet 3-speed roof vent
  • Tongue-mounted storage box
  • 12-Volt and 120-Volt electrical system. USB charging ports. Can plug into campground power if available.
  • Screened doors with deadbolt locks
  • 2 locking exterior storage compartments under the trailer
