Hmm, that sure looks unaerodynamic. It would be like pulling a parachute behind you.

(There is a reason that teardrop trailers are shaped the way they are.)

Could be roomy inside - can't wait to see more pic's and the stories

There is a reason they are pulled by a horse... :-D

These Gypsy caravan home-builts were getting some interest a few years ago, with plans available on the Internet. My brother followed one into a campground in Banff National Park last year. By the time the poor guy got it up the (rough) road and into a spot - the road had pretty well shaken it apart. :oops:

The thing sort of collapsed backwards into a pile of parts. :twisted:

Yes . . . this should be interesting :?

I can't imagine towing the thing (canvas top) without it inflating !!

This is starting to become more prevalent amongst the hardcore T&TTT crowd (teardrops and tiny travel trailers).

They build a teardrop or two and then head into an exotic design (possibly out of boredom) . . . Rick, the guy building it, is a superb craftsman . . . he built a fantastic Benroy Teardrop that was really, really nice. The Vardo will be his second build (I think)

Another example of a T&TTT departure - (Hoosier chapter - Indiana ;-) )
(if there are small children in the room, you may want to cover their eyes)

If I were a Basque sheep herder that would be the trailer for me!
I thought you told everyone at the last campout you were a Basque sheepherder . . . . :cheerleader:(which explained "shirley" the sheep that you brought along and why you ditched Richelle . . . )
