California's-Gold

The Adventure Continues… Teardrops

DSCF7050

I happened to spot this modern teardrop trailer a few days ago at Orv’s Shell station in Williams, California, and it reminded me of this episode of California’s Gold. I’ve never camped in one of these, but after watching the show, you might feel tempted to hit the road with a teardrop!

Step back in time with Huell as he visits a weekend gathering of classic teardrop trailers. They sleep two, and have a built-in kitchen on the back all in a teardrop shaped trailer a little more than eight feet long.

Some were built by various manufacturers, but many were lovingly built or restored by hand from plans in a Popular Science magazine.
