The 5′ x 8′ Teardrop Trailer Kit


For the first time, YOU Can Build Our Classic Teardrop Trailer!

These are the exact parts and plans that we’ve used to build our commercially produced trailers since 2007!

The 58 Heald teardrop camper is an aerodynamic, light, comfortable, vintage-looking trailer.  Its interior queen size mattress and hand-built cabinetry assure relaxation and organization on any camping trip.  The versatile galley is a great place to cook up nearly anything you desire.  The 58 Heald teardrop trailer is a great way to get away!

We’ve designed the 58 Heald to be as maintenance-free as possible so that your time is spent doing what you want…traveling! The CNC machined parts ensure tight seals and a strong body, and the stainless steel exterior won’t oxidize or easily crease -like aluminum exteriors do- which makes it easy to keep looking nice and clean.

This little trailer is so light and usable that it can be pulled by any car with a 1000 lb towing capacity or more.

This package does not include everything you need to build a teardrop as some parts are more economical for builders to purchase locally (plywood, steel for the Trailer frame, screws, etc). A complete list of additional materials is included in this kit.

PRE-ORDER this total trailer bundle for limited introductory pricing. This kit is still in development and more detail will be added as the product reaches completion.
