Sleep Under The Stars In These 5 Teardrop Trailers With Skylights

Many people are realizing they don’t need half the things they own and are downsizing to small RVs like teardrop trailers. These campers are light to tow and they can fit in more campsites that aren’t suitable for the bigger Class A motor coaches.

Despite their small size, teardrop trailers can be very comfortable for a solo traveler or RVing couple. These five teardrop trailers with skylights not only provide better natural lighting and airflow, but will also allow you to fall asleep under the stars.

1. Mink Campers

Mink Campers rents out these fully-equipped trailers for road trips in Iceland. The light nordic campers can be towed by a 4×4 2017 Dacia Duster SUV, which are also available to rent.

2. Pika by Timberleaf Trailers

The Pika is the newest trailer from Colorado-based Timberleaf Trailers. This mini camper gets its name from a small rabbit-like animal that lives in the high-alpine terrain in the Rocky Mountains.

The new Pika trailer is 36% smaller than their Classic model. It is built with a 54-inch by 96-inch frame and the base model only weighs about 1,025 lbs. The camper is lightweight enough to be easily towed by most passenger vehicles.

The Pika’s double-size mattress comfortably sleeps one or two people. The cabin is nice and bright between three LED lamps, two reading lamps above the head of the bed, and a dome light at the foot of the bed.

There is stretch-netting cargo storage at the foot of the bed and on the side of the mattress by the doors. USB ports are also installed at the foot of the bed for charging electronics.

The trailers are designed with a large overhead skylight, two sliding windows, and sliding windows on the two doors. They also have two Maxxair fan options for ventilation.

4. Lume Traveler

Technically, the Lume Traveler is not a teardrop, but this aluminum Dutch-made beauty is still lightweight, compact, and has a rear galley much like a teardrop design.

This minimalistic trailer is available in three options: the No. 1, the Basic, and the Shell.  The No. 1 trailer has an open convertible fabric roof, plus a built-in insect screen to keep bugs out. Both of the side windows also have roll-up curtains for privacy.

The interior is built with sustainable materials like teak and wool felt upholstery. You can also upgrade to include oak or linoleum flooring, as well as mobile WiFi and a 32″ flatscreen television.

The Lume’s rear kitchen is much larger than most teardrop trailers. It features three upper cabinets for plates and glassware, and two larger lower cabinets to store food. The cooking space includes two gas burners, a 40-liter fridge, and a gas connection for a barbecue.

Without any upgrades, the No. 1 model is currently priced at € 46.500, or about $54,091 USD. The Basic option is a bit cheaper (€ 39.950 or about $46,471 USD) and has fewer features, however, you can add them in at additional costs.

Their least expensive option (€ 27.250, about $31,698 in USD) is the empty Shell. This is the way to go if you like the strong outer aluminum shell but would rather build out the interior yourself.
