On the blog Stuff I Like, they posted this heartbreakingly cute vintage trailer they saw while vacationing at Calaveras Big Trees. Talk about efficient use of space.

    Those are teardrop trailers. Not all that unique. I’ve seen tons of them.

    This particular one is even kinda ugly, if not plain.

    How can anyone say a disparaging word about the cute little wooden one shown here? It’s adorable! I would pay a king’s ransom for it, it’s beautiful!

    I really love these things! I found a lot of plans on the web for using a cheap 5×5′ trailer from Harbor Freight as the foundation… got all excited to go do it. To find that a towing hitch for my car would cost more than the whole project (more than I could spend).

    Seems kinda idealic for a single man with meager means to travel by. I had to settle for a tent and a motorcycle. I’m happier with one of those items than the other. :)

    More tiny trailer build-it-yourself awesomeness here!


    I expect to see a bazillion of these things on the road this summer, now that makers are discovering them!

    Jeez… maybe not as 90’s as the wonders you linked to, but ugly and plain?!? The center wood inlay would state otherwise to me. But, YMMV. :) I think my 71 microbus is beautiful. Go figure.

    I love Teardrop trailers and hope to build one for myself one day. There is a community of Teardrop builders at http://www.Mikenchell.com/forums. They have free plans and everyone there is really nice and love to help you out with your trailer build. We would love to see you there.
