It is perhaps more feasible (and potentially more economical due to less amount of steel needed) to custom make ultralight frame for a light teardrop. This old thread has some useful info: http://www.tnttt.com/viewtopic.php?t=7275#p85804

Go tent camping only or stay in a Motel 6. That is the solution, until you can get something with a higher tow rating. Finding camp spaces for a small home built camper in an RV park might be difficult right now due to all the new RV owners clamoring for spots. My neighbor bought a 3 yr old off road style camper with folding hard sides and he wasn't able to find any nearby RV parks that would accept his small trailer. He has a 3/4 ton Ram truck and if he had bought a 5th wheel RV he could have reserved a spot.

I wouldn't do it even though I do think you could do it totally safely. We live in 2021, common sense isn't so common on the off chance an accident happens. That includes our legal system unfortunately. Would get a car rated to tow. There are guys out there towing with cars like Yaris.

there are guys out there that are towing with a Smart Car. Perhaps it depends how small ones camper trailer is? there are some campers that a motorcycle could tow.
