What is a Teardrop Caravan?

It’s a streamlined, compact, lightweight travel trailer, which gets its name from its unique teardrop shape.

They first became popular in the 1930s and evolved after World War II when their construction made use of materials obtained from surplus markets. The chassis were made of steel U channel or from round steel tubing, and the wheels came from Jeeps that were salvaged from sunken ships. The exterior skins were oftern made from the wings of World War II bombers

They remained popular until the mid-1960s, after which they disappeared from mainstream camping. However, since the late 1990s teardrop trailers have made a resurgence and are growing in popularity.

With a streamlined shape, small size and light weight they allow very easy towing even on the smallest cars.
