About Our Teardrop Plans
We have two teardrop trailer plans available, our Classic Style 5 x 8 Teardrop Trailer and our Benroy Style 5 x 10 Teardrop Trailer. With the plans, step by step building instructions and materials list, both sets of plans contain over 60 pages. Although most people choose to use one of the little bolt together trailers for the frame or other prefabricated trailer, we also included the plans and building instructions for the frame in case you want to build your own. Something you find with our competitors.
About Our Teardrop Trailers
Our 5 x 8 and our 5 x 10 Teardrop Camp Trailers have enough room for a queen size mattress that only weigh between 575 - 650 lbs. loaded. And we show you how we built the 5 x 8 teardrops for under $700. Of course as time goes by prices of materials increase, but we did put in the information on where to get the best prices on the materials so that you will be able to build your teardrop trailer at the lowest possible cost.
Years ago when I decided to build my first teardrop trailer, I had purchased several different sets of plans and I was unable to use any of them. They were either incomplete, badly copied old magazine article, or just plain unsafe.
After becoming frustrated, I spoke to a friend who also designs and builds trailers, and between the two of us we came up with the design and set of plans for our 5 x 8 teardrop trailer, then as we built our first teardrop trailer, we wrote out step by step, easy to understand instructions including the measurements, sketches, images and drawings.
Since then we have built a number of these little camp trailers, and our latest 5 x 10 teardrop trailer which provides even more room.
And fortunately for you, as we continued building these trailers, we learned a few tricks along the way, so we updated the instructions and included some tips and tricks we learned to give you the best information possible.
Drawing The Profile
One of the concerns that a number of our customers seemed to have was their ability to draw the profile. So we tackled the problem and we came up with a fool proof technique that will enable anyone to draw a perfect, smooth curve for the profile every time, even if you can't draw a straight line. And you don't need any special tools period. We believe its better then a template and most all of our customers agree.
1. Very easy to build with our step by step instructions.
2. Features room for a queen size mattress.
3. Instructions for building the teardrop using one of the little kit trailers for the frame is included.
4. Safe on the road, good balance, no swaying or bouncing etc.
5. You can very easily customize about any part of this trailer.
6. Light weight, can be towed behind your Honda Civic etc.
7. Will not effect your fuel mileage much at all.
8. We show you a very simple fool proof way to draw the profile.
9. Includes wiring diagram and instructions.
10. If you use one of the kit trailers for your frame, you will not need to have the DOT inspection.
11. You will get our email address in case you have any questions along the way.
12. Over 60 pages of information to ensure every step is well explained.
13. Includes the trailer frame plans as well.
14. We show you how we saved hundreds of dollars on the cost of building either of these trailers.

We are often asked if there are any special skills required to build our teardrop trailers. The answer is no if you use one of the little bolt together trailers for your frame like the one in the image above, then no you do not need any special skills at all to build this camp trailer. You need to know how to read a tape measure and how to use a level etc. but since there is no welding required if you use one of the bolt together or other prefabricated trailers, you don't need any special skills.
And you do not need any special tools either. Just some every day tools that you probably already have in your garage or shop such as a jig saw, skill saw, tape measure, etc. One thing that you will want to have a number of is clamps.

These are complete plans with instructions and materials list, including the wiring diagrams with instructions on how to wire the trailer.
With the updated information that we have added to these plans there is darn near 70 pages of our time within these plans now, and they are not full of blank pages. And I know that we took the time to try to explain each step completely so it would easy for you to read, understand and follow.
And you can email us for an updated copy for life. If you purchase your plans now and let’s say something comes up and you don’t start building for six months, just email us your purchase info and we will email the most updated set of plans we have. The same goes if some how your plans got deleted from your computer.
