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 [...]
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 question how much everything that is built in the world is used to its full potential? How much is just used at 10%?  People around the world are consuming more and more every year. The vast majority of our possessions are never fully utilized to [...]
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, [...]
Droplet trailer – 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  - Initial Criteria Pascal initially designed Droplet in collaboration with his partner Diane to accommodate for their personal desires to have a reliable camping pod to spend [...]
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 [...]
