Teardrop Trailers

The modern teardrop-shaped RV, compact in size, has traditionally been designed with a back section that curves downward to close into a point, giving the RV the recognizable shape. These small travel trailers can be pulled by the family car or a small SUV equipped with a hitch but have a basic kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area. Many manufacturers are reimagining the teardrop concept and providing these smaller, more compact options for RVers but with a wider range of designs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have never towed a vehicle before. How do I learn to do it? 

    It may seem intimidating to tow an RV for the first time but towing is a skill set like driving a car, riding a bike, or mastering anything you ever set out to learn. There are several ways that you can prepare but one of the easiest ways to learn is by contacting your local dealer. Many dealerships offer test drives and even offer classes on how to tow an RV. This article is also full of tips on how to get started.

  • How do I figure out the capacity of my tow vehicle and hitch?

    When towing an RV, it is important to match the loaded weight of the RV to the towing capacity of the tow vehicle and this includes factoring in the added weight of the equipment you are bringing. Consult your dealer or owner’s manual for details and have the tow hitch professionally installed.

  • Do teardrop trailers have a toilet?

    Many teardrop trailers have a sink, toilet, and shower but not all. It's important to work with your dealer to find the right teardrop that fits your needs. The larger teardrop trailers have full bathroom and showers.
