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 May.

On March 8th, Our CEO Pascal Pillon took the road from Vancouver, BC to Redding, CA to meet up with as many interesting Droplet and teardrop camper fans as possible. He was back on Canadian soil on 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. For those who wish for a mellow road trip Droplet can serve them well. But do keep in mind, this has little luxury element when you compare it with airplane rental. Initially, it may seem like a difficult trial, but things do get better over time.
