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″).

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.
