I'm in the middle of building a 5' x 10' teardrop for a friend.
I'll try and post some pictures.

My girlffriend and I are buying a house. After we have a place to store a small trailer, we'll be building one for us as well.

Why a teardrop? We have tents and I have a big cargo trailer that we can sleep in. However, for a quick weekend getaway a small trailer that we can drag behind her 4 banger Toyota pickup will be perfect.

Imagine it's a wood tent with a kitchen in the back.

Bought a used 10' Jayco last year and have loved it. A great step up from tenting (which I also loved...but now with kids, the trailer is so much easier). Setup and takedown isn't a huge hassle, but I can see being able to stop and have lunch/access to the trailer as a big improvement.

Me and the kids love it, the wife...she tolerates it.

"Operation"? Is that what posting here is called...

This Operation has potentially cost me what I would assume to be quite a bit of money in the form of a T@b trailer. What a cool little unit.

Here's my 1956 Terry the day I brought it home. 1500 pounds.



And here's JJMSP's El Macho.




Hopefully she'll chime in with more pics.

I've been thinking something small with shower and potty facility would be great for taking to the track. Something that sleeps 2 comfortably. Not sure how long I'm keeping my truck so a way to mount a second hitch for a light bike trailer (It's legal to tandem as long as you're under a certain length here).

Anyone know of something that fits the bill?

I use a 12' Utility trailer now for a toy-hauler but have my heart set one one of these.

A little pricey though, $10 to $14K depending on options.
