Teardrop campers, also known as teardrop trailers, first became popular in the 1940s, when they were typically DIY creations. Today, many and varied commercial models of teardrop campers are on the market, ranging from sleek, retro-stylish versions to rugged campers engineered for off-roading and rugged terrain. It’s not difficult to understand why teardrop campers are all the rage. You can easily tow them with a regular vehicle, they’re small enough to store at home, and they boast an efficient, aerodynamic design that cuts way down on fuel costs (compared to larger RVs). If that’s not enough to explain why teardrop campers are perhaps the perfect camping vehicle, here are some more reasons.
