Teardrop trailers are know for being small and lightweight. Their streamlined look gives them a teardrop shape. This type of trailer will usually contain one sleeping space and a small kitchen in the back.
Rising to popularity in the 1930s, people first started building teardrops using plans found in magazines like Mechanix Illustrated. While their popularity dropped in the 1960s, they started to see a resurgence in the 1990s when plans again became available on the internet.
