vistabule's teardrop camping trailer is built for off-the-grid adventures

the vistabule is a teardrop camping trailer with plenty of windows so that you can catch views while relaxing inside. created by burt taylor, he has modified the 1930s trailer design to create welcoming teardrop campers with a queen-size sofa bed, a sink with running water, a two-burner stove and plenty of storage for dishes, food, and gear.

the vistabule camping trailer’s wide front window offers a panoramic view of the horizon, while it also serves as a dome under that campers can lie comfortably beneath and count the stars. the queen-sized bed converts to a comfortable couch. when privacy is required, a pleated shade can be pulled that hides on top of either side of the window. it also features wide side windows in the doors and large porthole windows that pop open at a touch with screens for keeping breezes in and bugs out.



there’s no need to bring a suitcase on the journey as the trailer’s headboard has room has storage for travel clothes.  there’s also plenty of room for pots, pans and food in the kitchenette, with a cabinet for your spices, condimnents and towels. to the right is another cabinet for cooking oils, wine, and utensils, while a cooler sits in the center. to the left is a sink with running water, and in the center of the counter is a two-burner stove.
