What is a Teardrop Camper with Slide Out?
A teardrop camper is a smaller camper that is easier to haul compared to a normal camper or RV. These campers get their name due to their shape and nothing else. The shape looks like a water drop or a teardrop. Hence the name. One of the ends of the trailer is going to be bulkier, whereas the other end is going to be slimmer.
These campers allow people to live simply in nature. These campers are the most basic types of camping that you can buy besides a tent and sleeping bag. Teardrop campers are going to provide shelter with a roof, a kitchen most times, and a bathroom some of the time.
The earliest models of these campers were made in the 1930s in the United States. However, during this time they were not as popular so they were made when they were ordered. Today, they are more popular and are made constantly to keep up with the demand.
These campers are small but spacious and they are cute.
