Last Updated: September 23, 2022
Your chances of owning the best teardrop trailer for your personal needs just got a lot better.
Why is that?
Because you found this page showcasing a bunch of lightweight, easy-to-tow, cozy little teardrop-shaped travel trailers!
A small tear-shaped camper gets you into places you can't go with bigger trailers.
Additionally, with a smaller trailer you'll also save gas and likely not need a new, more robust vehicle to tow it with.
A lightweight teardrop trailer can vary wildly in size and amenities.
The most minimal teardrop camper trailer will have just a bed and maybe a power supply.
The most luxurious teardrop trailer with bathroom has every modern-day appliance and convenience.
So, it's up to you to decide whether you want it to include a fridge, bathroom, or whatever other comforts are on your list.
You can find just about any realistic upgrades that you can imagine!
In no special order, here's the list.
What is the best teardrop trailer?
So, is there one best teardrop trailer? Not if you ask us.
In the RV world, there is no one style, floorplan, or type that is one-size-fits-all perfect for everyone.
That's why there are SO many styles, varieties, and layouts out there, so anyone can find the one that fits their needs the best.
The best teardrop trailer out there is the one YOU like the most and is within your budget.
Here are your choices:
Little Guy Max
Length: 21 feet
Weight (dry): 3010 pounds
Features: Wet bath, interior accent lighting, 6 foot 7 inches headroom, water heater, four cubic foot refrigerator, TV and entertainment system, AC and furnace, dinette that converts to the second bed, and floor-to-ceiling pantry.
This is the longest teardrop trailer on the list coming in at 21 feet.
It's cozy inside, has a contemporary design, and has a full wet bath with a shower and toilet.
It has seven windows, so there's no feeling of being inside a cave.
Little Guy makes a few teardrop models, so the Max isn't their only one.
But it's the largest and one of the largest or THE largest luxury teardrop trailer on the market.
If you like Little Guy but want something smaller, check out their website.
They are pretty fancy inside and have every comfort of home you could ask for, except maybe a fireplace, LOL.

Safari Condo Alto
Length: 17 feet
Weight (dry): 1,825 pounds
Features: Retractable roof, wet bath, king-sized bed, sleeps four, wrap-around windows, Canadian made, dining area converts to a bed, water cannot destroy it, fits inside a garage, separate bed and dinette space, full kitchen.
The Alto is an extremely unique type of pop-up. Unlike most pop-ups, it has no canvas.
Instead, the roof lifts, exposing high-up windows almost all the way around. It uses electric linear actuators for the lift (meaning you don't have to raise and lower it manually).
It's one of the largest teardrops on the list, more like a regular travel trailer than most.
It has a sleeping area separate from the dinette, but naturally, the dinette also converts into a bed. The bed area also converts into a couch area or a dinette.
The low roof makes it aerodynamic, saving you gas mileage.
This is one of those RVs that will probably outlast you by decades because of the materials it's made from.
They are hard to come by used, and if you want new, there will be a long wait.

NuCamp Tab 400

NuCamp makes a few teardrop trailers. They offer different lengths with different amenities.
The Tab is the largest in their fleet. It's still relatively small for a travel trailer but is large compared to most on this list and has two sleeping areas (sleeps three).
The Tab comes in the 400 with a 2-way fridge, or a 3-way fridge, or you can find the Tab Solo.
This one is a great choice for a small family, couple, or for solo travelers.
It has pretty much everything you could ask for in home amenities.

Hello! I'm the co-founder of Camp Addict, which my biz partner and I launched in 2017. I frigging love the RVing lifestyle but in December of 2020, we both converted to part-time RV life. Heck, I lived in my travel trailer for over 5.5 years, STRICTLY boondocking. I learned a lot about the RV life and lifestyle during those years. Now we share what we know with you here at Camp Addict.
After that many years of wonderful full-time travel, it was time for something new. These days, I'm often found working from my new Az home, and sometimes plotting and scheming whether or not to start collecting farm animals (or plotting my next RV trip!).
