Sunflower makes an appearance in the Spokesman-Review

When I opened up our local paper this morning, my bright yellow teardrop trailer was staring back at me. It turns out that a stock photo my husband took of us camping in the Desatoya mountains of Nevada was used as the main photo in an article on adventure camping. A nice surprise to go with my coffee.

The article was originally posted in the Statesman-Review of Spokane, Wash. and has been picked up by other AP newspapers, including the Reno Gazette-Journal. The article discusses the popularity of RV growth among younger people and their desires for more adventurous camping. A teardrop is great for that, kids!

A Little Trip to Little Guy Trailers

I recently returned from San Diego, Calif. where I visited Little Guy Trailers. This company focuses on campers and trailers less than 2,800 lb. and has their own camper design—the MeerKat. The company has a wide range of tiny campers and trailers to choose from, all in one place. They include the nüCamp RV T@B and T@G, Little Guy teardrop trailers like the MyPod and the Silver Shadow, Serro Scotty trailers, and the new Ascape by Aliner. Little Guy Trailers also has the beautiful T@B 400.

What's so great about this company is that you can get a better idea about which tiny camper works for you. Sometimes photos and videos don't do the space or amenities any justice and you need to visit each trailer individually and compare. The staff are more than happy to offer you tours of each type of trailer and give you the pros and cons of each.

Little Guy Trailer's own MeerKat could be a nice alternative to a teardrop trailer. The 900 lb. camper has a popup canvas roof, dinette that converts into a bed, cabinets and a basic kitchen. The kitchen is meant to be more for camping than RVing and features a one-burner propane stove and a sink with a pump that works with any container you want to use.

Learn more about Little Guy Trailers on their website or in my article for Tiny House Magazine. Watch my video to see a quick tour of the company.
