Our first teardrop trailer "Woody"
Pictures of the creation of woody
Woody is a 4' by 8' teardrop trailer built on a Harbor Freight trailer frame. With a total weight of around 650 pounds Woody is easy to maneuver and a cinch to pull. Scott said his temperature gauge never went up even after climbing out of Cottonwood. The Suzuki had no problems keeping a good speed up hill. 25 + MPG and comfortable camping at the same time! Scott is the main force behind our tear drop trailers. He wanted to build a trailer for his own use. Doug and Steve thought it was a great idea and that they wanted their own teardrops as well. Scott has since moved on and Doug and Steve are too busy running Shelves That Slide creating the best pull out shelves available
The reviews are in and Scott says it will be a long time before he goes tent camping again. The teardrop worked out great for he and Shari. Even at only 4' wide there was plenty of room for the two of them. They had no problem hauling it around accept for being stopped over and over again by curious campers. They loved talking about it and showing off all of the hard work. That night was cool with temperatures in the high 40's to low 50's. They stayed warm as could be and actually found themselves opening the windows to let some cool air in. Although woody still needs some weather strip on the galley and a couple more coats of varnish on the sides we have to say it is not only road ready but very much road worthy!
