Cool Teardrop Trailer

This has got to be the best teardrop style trailer I've ever seen.
It wouldn't work for us with the off roading we do, unless I can get Ujoint to build an independently suspended subframe.

Re: Cool Teardrop Trailer

If they reversed how it was towed and added some lift it might work better.

I've seen these in Zion. Amazing amount of glass. Very nice execution of a btilliant idea.

Re: Cool Teardrop Trailer

Nice looking trailer for being so unusual. A lot of "innovative" designs end up looking horrible. This one looks very clean.

I'd have to see one in person to feel comfortable with what appears to be a reversed structure. If the unit pops up from within, how does it keep rain out? I'm guessing there are seals, but will they leak? Not really sure how it's built, but know water leaks are the number one cause of serious RV damage.

Other RV units that raise up like Hi-Lo trailers normally have the lift part on outside so rain can flow down the sides with minimal chance of leaks.
