A Teardrop Tent Trailer

Filed under: Teardrops & Tiny Trailers — Laura Moncur @ 6:07 pm

I found out that half the roof of our tent trailer has wood rot. It will easily last another five years or so, but it got me to thinking what I would do if we had to replace the roof.

In all honesty, we’d probably junk the trailer and just buy a new one, but if I got creative, I might be able to replace the roof with something that might make the trailer look interesting and give us a little storage space.

What if I made the tent trailer into a teardrop?

Here’s what it looks like when I paste the top of a T@b trailer onto my tent trailer. It would open the same as a tent trailer and give us a TON of headroom and storage along the sides. I would have to make a spot for the Fantastic Fan, because the addition of that has been a godsend on those 104 degree trips to St. George. I don’t think I’d even have a window or that door because then there would be more room for storage.

This idea has gotten me all excited about replacing the roof of our tent trailer. I could turn it into something adorable AND have all the space I could dream of when the trailer is deployed. I have absolutely NO idea how to make this a reality, but I want it!

  1. Greetings from Missouri,

    I was poking around the web, doing research for a camper purchase and stumbled upon your blog. Nicely done. I appreciate the posts on T@B trailers. I’m strongly considering a T@B CS with the bathroom option which is now available. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to drive a bit to see and/or purchase one. I also enjoyed your other posts on ultralight trailers.

    Off topic: I infer from some of your posts, you are in Utah. Thumbs way up for your fine state. We did a “grand tour” several years ago through most of the national parks. I need to get back to really prowl around Escalante. Last summer we did eastern Nevada (The Ruby Mountains near Elko and Great Basin N.P.) Very, very cool.
