Droplet to Your Doorstep
We feel proud every time we put the "Made in Canada" sticker on a recently finished DROPLET trailer. British Columbia has been a great place for our production as well as for our own off-grid adventures. But the fact that we are located in BC might raise a concern about shipping to other provinces and the United States. Worry no more, we are able to get our tiny camper all the way to your doorstep no matter where you live. As you can see on the map, our most common shipping destinations are on the West Coast but that does [...]
Wind Tunnel Testing
DROPLET is all about innovation. Our goal is to make sure the DROPLET trailer is the most efficient and comfortable tiny camper while having the least impact on our environment possible. In the interest of providing an environmentally conscious product to our customers, DROPLET partnered up with the University of Saskatchewan capstone design program with the objective to determine the drag coefficient for our lightweight trailer and to explore the effectiveness of add-ons in reducing it. The main appeal of small camping trailers is the low tow rating. We have managed to keep the weight of our teardrop trailer as [...]
Let The Sunshine In
At DROPLET, we want to make sure our lightweight trailers come with the right equipment to maximize your camping experience. With solar energy being one of the most suitable power sources, especially for off-grid adventures, we recognize that solar panels are a great addition to our product and it is yet another way of elevating both outdoor and indoor life at the campground. Finding the right partner was a challenging journey due to our specific needs and a desire to cooperate with a like-minded business. The result however was worth the effort. The 150W rigid removable carbon fibre solar panel [...]

Fall Travels: Extend Your Camping Season with DROPLET
Fall has arrived, and with it the welcomed return of campfire season, here in BC. We love fall camping: fewer people at the campsite, no suffocating heat, earlier sunset and Nature shedding her layers. Sure, the water may not feel as warm to swim in, but overall, it's great. It is a rejuvenating  feeling than the one of hitting the road towards a new destination,get to set camp, and head into nature without many other tourists around. While most seasonal campers think about retiring into their cosy homes, it feels as though our real camping season just starts. DROPLET truly [...]
DROPLET – Why So Simple?
When looking at the DROPLET, it appears obvious that we did not chose to build an extra large trailer, full of the latest toys and gadgets. We kept it simple. Why so simple you may ask? Well, ask anyone who works in engineering, design, music, or architecture and they will tell you that there is nothing simple about designing a simple item. At the core of our philosophy, we wanted to keep the DROPLET pure. From all of its aesthetic design lines, the apparent wood design,to the incorporation of a powder coated chassis, we build with high-tech materials in order [...]
Summer Adventures: Bringing your DROPLET to the Water
Politics and economy aside, the hottest topic of  Summer 2018 after the launch of DROPLET Trailers and the Kardashian's latest bikini selfies remains the general alarming rise of temperatures.

Still, We've been blessed here in Vancouver, with bluebird skies and hot streaks shooting above 31C. The ocean's water is just refreshing enough to chase the [...]
DROPLET – What happened in Summer 2018?
Dear readers, You might have noticed that we have gone a little silent over July 2018. Why is that you may ask? Well, our entire team has had to get seriously involved with building teardrop trailers out of our shop in Langley, BC. Furthermore, our rental program has been getting so successful that we are going to expand our available trailer inventory in the future. Really, everyone has gotten their hands dirty, pouring endless drops of sweat  in our little shop, sacrificing on personal and much needed outdoors time (We love camping too) to build and deliver trailers. But we [...]
