Full Answer

Mini teardrop campers were popular in the 1930s and 1940s and started to gain popularity again in the early 2000s. They are small campers that are generally lightweight and used to sleep in and store items when camping and/or traveling. Because of their compact size and low weight, they can generally be pulled behind small vehicles with low towing capacities, making them convenient for people who do not have large SUVs, trucks or other vehicles specialized for towing. This also makes the units more fuel efficient than larger campers.

Owners of mini teardrop campers frequently state that advantages of their small size over RVs and larger campers include being easier to park them and find parking for them, as well as easier to store them when they are not being used. Despite their small size, most models fit one to three single beds in them, as well as numerous drawers and cabinets that can be used for storage. In comparison to tents, they are generally more stable, watertight, warm, comfortable and safe.
