Featured Teardrop: Small Home Oregon Teardrop Trailers

A few years ago I was in Portland to do a Tiny House Blog post on Walt Quade and his Small Home Oregon homes. His homes were beautifully built, but I was also surprised to see an equally beautiful teardrop trailer sitting in his driveway. He told me he was planning on creating custom, luxury teardrop trailers as well as tiny homes. He is currently offering several handmade trailers with different options and prices.


The Small Home Oregon teardrop trailers have queen size beds, extra reading lights, built-in sound sound system options, two inches of rigid foam for insulation, a propane tank in an equipment locker, a deep cycle battery, a 15 or 20 gallon water tank and a small electric pump that leads to the sink in the galley.


One option costs $9,000 and is about 1,000 lbs with a 100 lb tongue weight. It's 11 feet long overall and five feet wide. The interior is 1/2 plywood and the floor, walls and ceiling are all insulated. This version includes only one door on the right side and a window on the left, but there is a roof vent with a screen and electric fan. The interior has four storage cabinets and a 4 inch foam mattress. The galley has a counter and storage cabinets and a stainless steel bar sink with a cutting board cover. The entire trailer has two 12-volt outlets, but a 110 volt package can be added on for $335.


Another trailer option costs $11, 250 and is 13.3 feet long overall and five feet wide. It contains all the amenities of the shorter trailer. Options such as a CD player, a solar PV charging system, a built-in Coleman stainless steel cooler, custom curtains, a Coleman stove and an additional side door can all be added for an extra cost.

Queen-sized bed so those of us who are 6 ½ feet tall have plenty of room to move around. Extra reading lights so you can catch up on your favorite book while your partner snoozes. Built-in sound system with speakers in the sleeping compartment as well as the kitchen in back. Two inches of high density, rigid foam surround the sleeping compartment so it’s always warm and quiet. A propane tank is in the forward equipment locker so you have plenty of propane for stoves and lights, and it can easily be refilled. Large, deep cycle battery that powers all the lights and sound system with a PV panel so if you aren’t recharging from the car, the sun will keep you going. Mounted under the frame is a 20 gallon water tank Even a week in the desert won’t drain your water supply. A small electric pump delivers it to the sink in the galley. Hand-made of the best materials available with a keen eye for craftsmanship and detail. - See more at: http://smallhomeoregon.net/tear-drop-trailers-2/tear-drop-trailers/#sthash.NfsnOTQf.dpuf
