Moby1 is offering a new take on the traditional teardrop trailer, with a range of compact models that are specifically designed for off-road touring. These teardrop trailers are not only lightweight, but also offer campers extra cargo space, a flexible load-carrying platform, a meal preparation area and cooking station, and a standard mattress.

With current fuel prices, however, the teardrop trailer is starting to make more sense for the environmentally-conscious camper. Read More
