Teardrop Trailer Construction

Teardrop Trailer Construction can be a fun and challenging project.  These recreational trailers are making a comeback because of their many economical advantages.  Due to their size, Teardrop Trailers can be built at very low costs (especially compared to other types of  larger trailers) and they are cheap to maintain.  Their light weight construction also makes them more towing efficient; you can easily tow them with a regular car, which helps save on fuel costs.

A fully built trailer also boasts a very small footprint.  This makes them extremely portable and able to be set virtually anywhere.  Their round shape helps them maximize inside square footage, without compromising strength.  Below you will find pictures of various teardrop trailer construction stages:

 

 

 

Something to take note of, especially if you plan on building a trailer of your own, is how everything is built from the frame up.  A solid building base is obviously going to be one of the most important parts of your build.  You need to ensure you either purchase or build a very sturdy frame.  From there, everything will follow suit and you will have a solid trailer from top to bottom...and, more importantly, bottom to top!

The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the construction comes toward the end, when you can start adding the "bells and whistles."  The best part about teardrop trailers is that they are meant to be customized to how you plan on using them, and also personal taste.  Some people use them for tailgating, and have full outdoor kitchens with mini-refrigerators and flatscreen televisions that attach to the side panels outside.  Many use them for recreational campers, and outfit their trailers with comfortable interiors, convertible beds, sinks, and outdoor canopies.  However you plan on using yours, just remember, sound teardrop trailer construction is the first step to enjoying these awesome little sidekicks!
