If you love camping, but are always worried about your comfort during the stay, teardrop campers can be an absolutely wonderful choice. Take some inspiration from the Canada-based designer and travel enthusiast Pascal Pillon and his partner Diane Bissonnette, who have designed Droplet, a Scandinavian-inspired teardrop trailer to improve their own camping experience. After getting renting inquiries, they are now planning to bring it to the market through a crowdfunding campaign, but for now, the very first design can be rented through Airbnb for about US$64/night.
This Scandinavian-style teardrop trailer has big doors and wide picturesque windows to provide uninterrupted views of outdoors even when you’re sleeping inside over the queen-size bed mattress. The sleeping area also hides underneath some cabinets for storage. It is insulated with closed cell Aluminum laminated foam for a cozy and comfortable experience all year long. There are additional felt pockets on each door to keep night essentials within an arm’s reach, while interiors are lit with touch-sensitive LED lamps. The kitchen is housed at the back and is equipped with fridge, stove, sink, lighting, and necessary cookware.
Droplet teardrop trailer uses minimum amount of screws, and is made with high-strength structural adhesives to keep the overall weight at par. The living cabin sits on a trailer measuring 12.5 x 6.6 x 5.5 feet, and weighing 950lbs with a 90lbs tongue weight. You will need a mid-sized car that can pull it off to the desired locations. With easy-to-use built-in features, it seems ideal to improve camping experience. Currently, it is a fully-developed and functional prototype that is supposed to come in production this year.
