You’re going to love the unique design of this Vistabule teardrop camper.
The company’s founder, Bert Taylor, said of his design,
A typical teardrop is a step up from a tent. It tends to be cozy but claustrophobic. I wanted mine to be open to the outside.
He sure delivered on his vision.
The design of the Vistabule teardrop is unique in that it’s sloped toward the front rather than toward the rear. It sort of looks like the teardrop is facing the wrong way.

Bert made this ‘cab forward’ design so that you could more easily look out the front of the trailer while it’s parked. Typical teardrops don’t have any windows up front.
Some of the features of the Vistabule include:
- lots of storage compartments for your clothes and camping items
- sink with running water
- grey water tank
- fan and two air vents
- plenty of lighting (even red lights for night time reading)
Take the photo tour below.
Bamboo and rice paper screens cover the windows and storage cubbies.
Here’s what the storage shelves look like with the rice paper screens rolled up.
There’s storage above and below in the teardrop’s sidewalls.
More storage in the front of the teardrop. The sliding doors prevent items from falling out while traveling.
The port hole windows come with privacy plugs that look like the lids to a cooking pot. They fit over the window and block the view quite nicely.
You’ve got lots of room to move around inside. The sleeping area is the size of a Queen bed.
The bed can face either to the front or to the rear of the camper.
It’s easy to get in and out of the camper because the bed is level with the bottom of the door.
Both doors come with privacy screens to completely block the view into the camper.
And the screens fold down to make a table.
They can also be folded completely out of the way.
There’s plenty of lighting in the Vistabule.
And even red lights for late night reading.
The galley is plumbed out with an 8 gallon gray water tank. For an additional fee, you can have a tap for city water installed.
The two burner cooktop has it’s own storage area and pulls out for easy access.
Rear galley area.
You can pull the Vistabule with a minivan. It’s 14 feet long in total, and weighs about 1,500 pounds fully loaded with a tongue weight of about 180 pounds.

The basic Vistabule costs slightly less than $14,000. You can also opt for a premium package that includes a bunch of extras like:
- more storage compartments under the bed
- a better mattress
- nicer honeycomb shades
- LED lighting
- city water connection
- and a collapsible sofa table
