Teardrop camper / caravan (handmade)
Ultimately the project was to develop a travel trailer that takes inspiration from vintage 1940s teardrop campers with the functionality of the 21st century. There will be minimal impact on the tow vehicle’s fuel economy, due to its small stature, lightweight, and excellent aerodynamics. Intended to be a hitch and go, it should provide every need for an authentic, pure camping adventure. Storage solutions should be versatile for awkward objects such as surfboards and fishing rods. Off-grid, self-sustained living with low environmental impact creates the ability for painless nomad travel in safe, comfortable sleeping and eating spaces packed with only the essentials to make life on the road convenient but not excessive; Improving the way people camp and where they explore.
Potential buyers would include, but not be limited to, people with moderate disposable income whom intend to or regularly spend time camping. This could be in the form of off-grid camping or powered site camping. Targeting individuals, couples or small families of any age who enjoy simplistic travel or have a need for a mobile, compact dwelling with built-in lockable storage for recreational accessories such as surfboards or fishing rods; targeting people who appreciate vintage, stylish alternative camping solution; people who wish for better fuel economy or have a vehicle with little towing capacity; car enthusiasts who don’t want to be limited by vehicle choice due to storage, towing capacity. Having an increasing appeal if it is functionally and aesthetically superior to other options on the market. Designed to last for an extended period with little patience further justifying the investment. Ergonomically it should create ease of use and minimise the time spent by the user setting up in order to maximise time spent camping. It must all meet standard road application standards to ensure use-ability and safety when in use.
The process of building a teardrop camper involves creativity right down to the frame. Everything is custom or one-off , meaning that everything is designed creativity. the shape of the camper is as a result of the creative influence and personal attention to design principles. I believe that the process of making anything from scratch is a creative process. Creative components, design innovations and problem-solving are a major part of the construction and building process. there were many steps that required rethinking initial solutions in order for issues to be overcome.
