2017 Little Guy Silver Shadow 5x10

Eenie Meenie … (What Teardrop Builder to Choose??)

The teardrop trailer industry is as different from regular RVs are RVs are from automobiles!

Outside of a few major manufacturers like Little Guy, NuCamp and InTech, the industry is made up of hole-in-the-wall operations. These builders are scattered across the country – look hard enough, and you’ll probably find one in your state! Most sell factory direct and either advertise (or will consider) custom models.

Working with a small operation – as small as one master builder or a team of five or six – has its pros and cons.

Pros

  • Custom features! Get the camper you want.
  • Excellent interior craftsmanship.

Cons

  • Limited warranty support
  • Higher upfront cost
  • Less engineering expertise

As a rule, small builders tend to excel in regard to woodworking and basic craftsmanship, such as cabinetry and frame design. Many come from a background in the trades. However, some builders may struggle with RV-specific designs or challenges, such as front window installation, hatch sealing, interior A/C installation, skylights, and electrical wiring.

It is recommended to work with a builder with at least three years of experience. Plus, a company should share basic wiring schematics and floorplans of their campers.

Ask how the campers are made. One type (aluminum-sided vs fiberglass) isn’t superior to the other. Look for CNC-cut furniture and professionally welded chassis frames.
