Why Droplet is our favorite all-weather camping option

Dear fellow camper, before we jump into this post, let us begin with a few personal questions.

  • How many times have you (or your partner) cursed the weather for going South during a multi-day camping trip?
  • Did you ever abort a supposedly dream camping adventure, because the entirety of your clothes and gear got soaked inside your tent (or tent trailer) during a storm?
  • Have you ever looked at those beautiful, shiny trailer campers parked next to you at the campsite,  secretly wishing your small car could tow it, so it was you who got to afford sleeping inside it, as you silently pack up your drenched gear?

A (seemingly) tiny camper built for tall people

When seeing a Droplet trailer for the first time, few would imagine the inside to be very voluminous. Fewer would even think that it hides a perfectly sheltered kitchen space too.  Yet, don’t be fooled by the first outside impression. The indoor space comfortably fits a plushy queen sized mattress, and it is spacious enough for two, even if you are a taller person than average like its designer, Pascal Pillon (6ft4″).

Droplet - compact design from the outside, roomy inside. Who would have thought a tiny camper could pack so much?

Vancouver to Cali and Back in under 4 Days.

March 2018 has been a REALLY exciting time for our Team at Droplet. On March 4th, we officially launched publicly our original Teardrop, Droplet-58. Serial production already began out of Langley BC, and the first orders of our compact campers will be delivered on time during the month of May.

On March 8th, Our CEO Pascal Pillon took the road from Vancouver, BC to Redding, CA to meet up with as many interested Droplet and teardrop camper fans as possible. He was back on Canadian soil March 11th, late in the evening. That’s almost 2400km in 4 days. Not quite the exact definition of a relaxing camping trip. Running a start-up lean and having time to get everything done is always hard at first but thankfully, the essence of our business helps us save tremendous time and costs on travel and accommodation. That’s part of the joys of simple living: just pack your essentials and go.
