canada-based startup droplet has finished building its teardrop trailer after first debuting at prototype in june last year. the tiny trailer is built around a queen-size bed, comprising an aluminum composite exterior, structural wood fiber frame and wood laminate interior, and weighing in at only 950lbs, it can be towed by almost any car.

unlike most teardrop trailers, the droplet boasts a bright and airy interior mainly because of its large half dome front window. it also sports side windows on both sides and a ceiling yachting hatch that lets in even more light. all apertures are tinted to maintain privacy.

for storage there are two cabinets and two shelves at the foot of the bed promising ‘ample storage’ for electronic devices and ‘some clothing’. like a traditional teardrop trailer the camper’s cook space is accessed from outside. it includes a two-burner propane cooking stove and an acrylic countertop with two LED lamps. dishes can be hung in the backsplash or stored in pull-out drawers. a 12-volt slide-out fridge offers a place for some food and a hand-pump operated closed-loop system for water.

measuring 6.6 feet wide, 13.5 feet long, and 5.5 feet high, the droplet is compact enough to easily store. at 950lbs it can be towed by cars with at least 1,100-pound towing capacity for example a ford focus or honda civic.

the company offers a series of different packages that range from $14,450 for the ‘naked’ droplet, to $16,450 for the off-the-grid package that includes solar panels. alternatively the droplet can be rented out so customers can try before they buy.

  • I love it when products like this are developed in a ‘bug-free’ environment. See how many of these solar ovens you would sell along the eastern seaboard or north woods…
