Lately we’ve noticed a trend in the camper market to produce smaller, lightweight designs of different shapes and styles. Case in point, the Gidget Retro Teardrop Camper ($13,125)- a compact trailer that expands for extra livable space and practicality.
Maintaining the timeless design of a teardrop trailer, this Australian-made camper features slide-out modules, allowing you to adapt it to your needs. Inside, you have a queen-sized bed which folds up, creating a seated lounge with bench, so you can eat, work, or watch the 24-in HD TV ( part of a rotating entertainment center with radio and built-in speakers ). The tailgate galley boasts a two-burner gas cooktop and cooler, both sliding out from underneath the counter which also houses a glass-top sink (hooked to a 21/29-gal water tank).
Other smart details include 110-watt solar panels, an inverter and deep cycle battery, a 10.6-gal waste water tank, a central electronic monitor and control panel, security alarm, and LED lighting inside&out. The Retro Teardrop Camper has a fiberglass body planted on a steel frame, and it features beautiful internal woodwork made from Australian and Tasmanian timbers. It weights just 1,213 lb, so you can tow it easily to your next destination. Details in the video. via
