Featured Teardrop: Runaway Campers

Runaway Campers, based out of Marion County, Florida are not your typical teardrop trailer. These boxy, lightweight trailers are essentially a blank slate in which to create your own camping experience. Runaway Campers weigh around 630 lbs and are just over 11 feet long. They can be towed by nearly any type of car just like a teardrop, but they do not have a rear galley.

The trailers can be used in a multitude of ways: as a protected sleeping area, to store additional camping gear, to plug in a refrigerator or heater and to get out of the less desirable elements. Each of the trailers come in different colors and have large windows and skylights.

The campers are factory direct from the company, so the basic BaseCamp costs $2,395, and the CoolCamp with a 5,000 BTU air conditioner and cargo box costs $2,895. You can also order additions like a compact refrigerator ($125), custom curtains ($75), a 12 volt to 110 volt power converter package ($299) and 13 inch high profile tires and rims.

  1. Christina in june i had a chance to see one of these neat campers down on the gulf coast.We were at big lagoon in perdido bay and a couple from Memphis tn. had one.It was nice the couple said it fit their lifestyle for quick trips much like our's did us.I asked them if they went to teardrop gatherings and was shocked when i was told they had but felt snubed because the shape wasnt classic teardrop.I loved it and told them so.hopefully i will see more like it in the future.

  3. Yet another reason to stay thin and healthy. Otherwise, you'll not be able to fit two people inside. I know, I have one (and wish it was about 4-6 inches wider.

  4. It has an access port so that you can bring an electrical cord inside the tent and an awning over the door to keep out the sun. It’s a fabulous tent for large families, scouts, and longer camping trips. survival shovel
