Featured Teardrop Trailer: TigerMoth

Anyone interested in the Cricket trailer by Taxa will be happy to know that the company will have its new teardrop trailer style camper, the TigerMoth, available at the beginning of 2016.

This lightweight trailer is only 900 lb. and 12 feet long. Created by Taxa founder and former NASA designer Garret Finney, the trailer looks like a tiny space capsule ready for outdoor adventure.

The trailer has a convertible couch that turns into a bed for two and instead of a galley, it has a 48 inch slide out drawer that holds the Taxa designed kitchen box with a stove, storage and a simple water container with spigot. The TigerMoth has a battery and electricity, but is not plumbed for water.

The roof of the TigerMoth can hold gear like kayaks and bikes, the interior has plenty of storage including ceiling nets and two doors (including a fly door for outdoor shelter) that open up to create plenty of airflow. The tongue is also extended to hold additional camping gear and an optional tool box.

The TigerMoth will be sold at various dealers around the U.S. and will start at $12,999.

  1. Pretty amazing what you can do in a tiny space with the ingenuity that this guy has.

  2. Really curious if a Tiger Moth will be at a dealer or RV show in the Pacific Northwest this year.

    1. Hi Sarah. You can contact the TAXA company directly to find out about dealer locations.

  3. You can find all types of modern teardrop plans out there but these are great for reference or if you want to build a teardrop the old way. Since these plans are so old, some material substitutions will need to be made. box trailers qld
