Sharing Is Caring

DROPLET truly believes in the sharing economy. It all started when DROPLET Founder Pascal Pillon questioned how many people owned a drill in his apartment building and how many times they were used. Pascal then wrote down a list of tools he owned and wanted to share them with his neighbours. This led him to … Read more

Vancouver Island Road Trip – Nanaimo -> Nanoose Bay -> Bowser -> Victoria

DROPLET TRAILERS hit the road on April 13th to Vancouver Island, in order to check the local RV Show in Nanoose Bay & meet with  prospective early adopters. Over 3 days, we traveled through 500+Km of scenic coastal drives and rain forest. Through those miles, we averaged 9L/100Km with our Toyota Matrix.  This place is a true Camper paradise. Dense forests, wild beaches, low population density, cheaper gas than the Lower mainland, and an array of charming coffee shops & antiques to visit. One known issue: it tends to rain frequently, and the coast gets a lot of wind. Where does one stay in order to maximize the camping fun, without getting soaked to the bone? Luckily, DROPLET is a well-insulated all-weatherproof travel pod. A true luxury for camping on the West Coast.

Droplet – 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.
