The Home Built Designs and Original Teardrop Trailer Gathering is scheduled for September 21-24, 2017 in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
near Santa Cruz , California. Please make your reservations ASAP as they will be filling up quickly, Reservations
. I'll be camping in space #50. Please come and camp with us! Camping reservations ($35/day) are available at ReserveAmerica.com. Please post to let me know that you're coming and what campsite number you have reserved.
Let's plan to have a pot luck Saturday evening. It's my first time organizing a gathering. I'm open to fun and helpful ideas. Please share them.
This gathering will be focusing on home built tiny trailers. The idea for this gathering is to see as many styles and ideas for small camping trailers. I have been to a few Teardrop trailer gatherings and although all the original TD had a special place in time. Home built trailers whether built like the original "Teardrop" shape to a modified TD style or a completely original shape/design have always caught my eye. Mostly because when someone takes pride in their build, they seem to be more likely to use their trailer.
Not that the classic cars that pull a Ben Roy or a Kit trailer don't use their trailer, it's just that these beautiful original trailers are too valuable to use them as a weekly camper. That being said, I'm hoping on a big showing of the original designs. Come see all our ideas in person and show what you've built and tell us your reasons for your design. I will be in space #50 with my most recent build which I have named GC8. An off road design that I have built in hopes to attract a younger generation. GC8 has all the ideas taken from the original TD concept but changed to fit a group of people who may want to go off the main road and find a river deep in the woods or up high on a mountain.
I'd like to thank everyone who has shown interest in this gathering and encouraging me to post this gathering. Remember all are welcome so even if you have an original million dollar Teardrop, by all means come show your beauty.
Take care and PM me any ideas you might have for this gathering.
