Teal Camper: Ugly But So Ingenious

Filed under: Camping,Teardrops & Tiny Trailers — Laura Moncur @ 12:15 pm

I was watching a video about A Frame trailers and this video from Teal Camper came up as a related video.

I was shocked at the ingenious design! You provide your own trailer, like the bolt together 4′ X 8′ frame from Harbor Freight and they ship the parts to you to create your own camper using only a screwdriver (preferably electric).

The Teal Camper Owners Manual shows you every step in how to put your camper together either on a utility trailer or on the back of a pickup truck.

Because the parts are modular, you can make your camper as big or as small as you want. In fact, there is even a design for making a 8′ X 8′ shelter. Here is a video walkthrough of it.

Here is a video tour of the 4′ X 8′ camper:

If you want a bigger camper, here is the 5′ X 10′ design:

Unfortunately, when I checked the Teal Camper Pricing Page, their online store is temporarily closed. They say they are negotiating with a new manufacturer, so you can’t order them right now without contacting them personally.

What Teal Camper lacks in beauty, it more than makes up for in flexible design and DYI ingenuity. I hope they are successful enough to move beyond their awkward appearance and are able to design a camper that is both modular AND beautiful.
