These tiny caravans, commonly known as campers are very compact and shaped like a teardrop – hence its name. They are relatively light, weighing in at around 350kgs and are designed with a streamlined shape for easy towing. They can be towed by most vehicles, including small 4WDs, softroaders and 2WD sedans. There are even some teardrop campers that can be towed by a trike motorcycle.
Teardrop caravans were marketed here in Australia
during the 1930's, 40's and 50's quite extensively and many original units are either being used actively or are under restoration. They are perfect for those who enjoy lazy camping in the outdoors with a bit of style and comfort, due to their light weight and ease of towing, their affordability and their beautiful retro looks.
