Tiny trailers make for cozy western travels!

Our current teardrop, a 58 Serro Scotty replica, lovingly crafted in 2011 by a West Virginia shop teacher!

Our first teardrop camper was a Kit Kamper, built from a kit in 2004; we towed it with a Nissan 300 ZX.
A modern Casita trailer offers the latest amenities, but maintains low weight and strearm-lined shape for easy towing with smaller vehicles.
Vintage VW Westfalias can still be found, perfect for camping for two or three-person families!

In recent travels throughout the west, tiny trailers and efficient campers are making steady in-roads – versus the giant fifth-wheels and behemoth motor homes.  They share common attributes: small, light-weight and stream-lined for easy towing with smaller vehicles.  And, they offer low-cost, ease of storage (many fit into a garage), and always create a crowd at campgrounds!  “Can you sleep in that little trailer” is a common inquiry!

Here are just a few of these cute trailers, spotted recently.  A full feature on traveling the west in tiny trailers is coming this Friday, featuring more detail on tiny trailers; teardrops, vintage trailers and other small camping rigs!

Happy travels in the west!
