A Collection of Custom Teardrop Trailers

Roy, one of my newest readers, sent me a link to this great website that’s filled with owner-built teardrop trailers. I’ve spent a lot of time looking through the photos for inspiration. I’ve been wanting to do another version of the conceptual Ultralight Teardrop Trailer for a Bicycle and the link Roy sent has me got me firing my imagination and Google SketchUp again. Most of the trailers on the site are for towing behind a car or truck but there was at least one bike teardrop trailer.







The best part of connecting with Roy through Tiny House Design is that he wants to build teardrop trailer for a bike. He builds bikes out of PVC pipe and wants to build a teardrop trailer with a PVC frame and other people’s scrap building materials.  Take a look at the bikes Roy builds. Also don’t miss the website where I found these great owner-built trailers.

    I’ve always liked teardrops, and the idea of how to make a usable bicyle-towed teardrop has been bugging me for weeks. How about this: a combination hard metal shell and tent.

    The basic trailer is about Once the campsite is reached, the front and back half of the shell would split apart, with the floor caexpanding like some dining room tables do. Theand an insert can be set in place in the floor, and your trailer is 7′ long, plenty of space for sleeping. Then a quick tent covering the opening in the middle, set up with 2 poles, plus a rain fly.

    Would it be worth doing, practical? So-so, maybe, but it would sure look cool. I did a pretty accurate model on sketchup, but have no idea how to show people. How do I?
