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?

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.

Buy it, Rent it, Share it

When we first created DROPLET, the goal wasn’t limited to designing a great camper trailer for ourselves. We wanted to build a sense of community and connection around it. That’s why we put ours to rent on various public web platforms last summer. The pilot program was so successful that we decided to grow our … Read more
