teardrop camper trailer

The classic teardrop camper trailer, originating back to the 1930’s has experienced a modern day resurgence in popularity, due to their minimalist impact and ability to be towed by smaller vehicles.

Nowadays, there’s all sorts of niche manufacturers designing and building some very innovative teardrop trailers, both on-road as featured in this article, as well as off-road teardrop trailers. In fact, here’s six classic-styled teardrops that would probably attract a decent amount of attention at your favorite campground:

Oregon Trai’R Frontear Teardrop Camper

The Frontear is quite an elegant looking, classic teardrop camper. The trailer features Baltic birch cabinetry, and one of the options I really like about this trailer are the exterior side tables, which use a double-gusset system, eliminating the need for legs. The base model starts at $13,000, and includes:

  • LED lighting, thermostat-controlled fan
  • Rubber torsion suspension system
  • 15” alloy wheels
  • 12V outlet, 120 V protected AC outlet inside and outside
  • Queen-size sleeping area w/ LUX Foam Mattress and custom cover.
  • Baltic Birch cabinets and formica countertop
  • Marine Battery

Some options include a Rhino rack, propane stove, water system, HDTV/DVD/Audio system and tons of other options.
