I think it's been 12 years for me and I'm still hanging around. Have had 3 more vintage trailers since the Teardrop. I have a 23' 1967 Mallard Flight Wing currently. I miss the Teardrop though for those quick, spontaneous trips.

I registered July 1, 2009 so I've just hit 10 years here. I'm on my 5th (or so) trailer (or so). The first was a casket on wheels, since I only wanted sleeping space for cross country drives. I discovered they don't expect a corpse to move much At All, so I sold that one. I've just bought this 360# lightweight, billed as a motorcycle trailer. Light enough that I can still push it into the garage, by hand.

Don't visit much anymore, but I guess I've been here more than 10 yrs. I'm still alive!

maybe you knew other member too.


It was saddening to hear of their passing, Gage had been in poor health and Doug was sudden and unexpected. Camped with them both and considered them friends. They were great people.

May 2004

My teardrop is long gone and I moved on to the 1960 Kenskill standie in my avatar.
After 15 years I have passed that on to my nephew. Loved it but over time it became too much work to move around in my
limited space.
I have no real plans for something else but the https://www.clcboats.com/teardrop from Chesapeake Light Boats keeps
appearing in my dreams. :lol:

I think this year is my tenth anniversary here. I don't stop by that often anymore. I was just missing the place, out of the blue ...

I'm shocked to see my ten year old photo. I am so skinny now compared to then. I'm going to have to figure out how to change my chubby self to my current self profile picture.

I don't now but it has been a long time.
I built my all wood trailer in 2006. My wife and I slept in it about 30 nights a yea until about 2011 or 12. It was good.
Then she got sick and died in 2014. The tear sat in to much weather to long.
New wife prefers a bit more, so we have a 27 foot trailer with way too many comforts (I don't complain when it is cold and rainy!)
Now I am planning a very unconventional rebuild and then give the teardrop to a daughter.
I check in here once in a while, but it has been a long time side I posted!
