Featured Teardrop: The Gidget Retro Teardrop Camper

Quite a lot of interesting, tiny campers are coming from Down Under. This includes the unique Gidget Retro Teardrop Camper that features a front slideout—essentially doubling the space inside the sleeping area. The bed inside this surf-inspired trailer also converts into a lounge and a dining area.


The Gidget comes in two models: the Bondi and the Noosa Longline which has even more space for a compact shower and toilet. Inside each trailer is an entertainment center with a TV and DVD, craftsman cabinets, LED lights and a skylight. The galley includes a roll out cooler, a sink with a glass cover, water storage tanks, a two burner stove, USB and 12V outlets and even safety features like a fire extinguisher and smoke detector. The Gidget is powered by a deep cycle battery charged by Slimline solar panels.


The Noosa Longline currently sells for  $23,250 AUS which is about $18,400 US and the Bondi sells for $18,450 or about $14,600 US.

    2. Hello Rus. The Gidget website mentions they will be setting up a showroom in the U.S. Keep an eye on their Facebook page, they currently ship to the U.S with some electrical components due to incompatibility.

  4. From my personal experience the company has a two year wait time or more on delivery, unless you pay upfront in full to jump the queue, but even then there's no guarantees. The company is built on broken promises. They also struggle to meet warranty commitments and have outstanding refunds which haven't been honoured by due deadlines. Do your homework before doing business with this company.
