    Hi,

    I'm looking to purchase a teardrop trailer and hit the road for an extended fishing trip and would like to talk to anyone that has a teardrop trailer about their experiences with their trailer.

    If you live in the Portland area I'd be happy to buy coffee or a beer.

    There is an excellent group on Yahoo that is based on Tear Drops there is also a huge gathering of them at Champoeg Park once a year. Not sure how to find info on the gathering. Maybe getting ahold of the Park management.

    I only spent 1 night in one.... not an expert. It felt like a coffin.
    A pickup with a canopy really has more room in it.

    Hi Gary, teardrops have a get up and go attractive quality as well as light towing stress against your rig. I'm wondering why you don't build your own? It seems to me 80 hours or less and a couple thousand dollars would leave a presentable functional trailer. To my taste, I'd have the kitchen aboard for coffee without wind and damp for a morning start. I'd love to hear more of your adventures.
