The world of tiny campers just got a lot cuter thanks to the Droplet. The Scandinavian-inspired teardrop trailer fits a queen size mattress and a fully equipped kitchen within a modern insulated shell. Its light size of just 950 lbs can be towed by most medium-sized cars, making the camping pod ideal for traveling the world.
The Droplet is the brainchild of Diane and Pascal from Vancouver B.C. After years of hauling their camping gear from their homes to the car, the outdoor lovers came up with the idea for a ready-to-go camping solution.
Although compact, the Droplet trailer is equipped with all of the basics needed to live on the road. Its envelope is insulated with strong laminated foam, which makes it an all-season camper. The interior is built around a comfortable 6″ queen-size mattress. Storage at the bed’s foot provides room for essentials. At the sides of the bed are two large felt pockets for nighttime items like phones and books, and two LED reading lamps.
What makes the Droplet especially comfortable are two features normally not found in tiny trailers: large doors and windows. The pod has two large doors on either side of the bed for easy entry. Large windows and a pop-up star-gazing skylight flood the interior with natural light.
The camping pod’s backend hides a a fully-equipped kitchen, again with all the basics for living life on the road. The back hatch swings open to reveal the countertop and backsplash. There is a slide-out fridge and a 2 burner propane cooking stove, along with a recessed sink equipped with a hand-pumped closed-loop water system.
