O-rama Teardrop Trailers - Pacific NW(Wash.)

Postby gudmund » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:37 pm

with all of the problems I had had with my old tear and buying this new one, I was surprised to see no info here on the forum about this builder since he has been building tears since 2012. (Mike LaCroix - he is located just south of Olympia, Washington - just west of I-5, at ex99)
O-rama! Teardrop Trailers (http://www.oramateardroptrailers.com) So far I have been so ""impressed"" with his build and how 'over' built it is!! This is a trailer that also came with a lot of things that other builders charge $$ extra for - Includes trailer brakes w/break away, aluminum tongue box & full width diamond plated front panel protecting the trailer front, LED tail lites, 14 inch 'Alloy mag' wheels w radial trailer tires, full sized 'mounted' spare tire, includes both doors - R&L, rear stabilizer jacks, 2x2 receiver for rear bike rack and is insulated in the roof along with other extra's ...... The frame is a commercial built 2x3 steel tubed frame with leaf springs. If interested, check out his build pictures on his website which also lists his $$$'s. I found out about this trailer brand from the two owners of them at our PNW Tearjerkers get-togethers and over the last few years and I have been watching how they have been holding up. SO FAR, I LIKE THIS TRAILER!! .........

Looks like he's closing up shop and retiring. Has a couple of finished trailers for sale right now.
Life is too short not to be happy.

Yes, it is true. And after the 8 ++ month's I have owned his #35 build I still have to say - this is one "Great" trailer !!! - not one problem since getting it in March this year and now after the over 5000 +++ miles I have used it so far since?? Still 'NOTHING' :thumbsup: After all of the problems with the other trailer I had had, starting with the first day of owning it, this trailer has been a real joy!! (I wish I had known than, what I know now about teardrops.) Guess Mike is getting into a new line of work - nice guy and me along with the other 3/4 people I have met so far that each own one of his builds have all said, we are going to miss him.. Take care, stay safe and "Good Luck" in your new future endeavors :beer: Mike ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

now even after owning this Orama trailer over a year now, I am still -!! so !!- "HAPPY" with my buying of this trailer!!! Well being the trailer builder has now left the trailer building business, he still shows the 'one' last trailer he had built as being unsold on his website of the final trailers he had built. Upon seeing this today, I figured I would try and help him out today in posting this info here by chance 'someone' out there maybe looking for a new teardrop. You can check it out - pictures and all are at posted at www.oramateardroptrailers.com ...........................

2024 update = now over 6+ years and almost 30000miles of towing it = everything is still just fine with the O-rama = no problems with anything so far - just the on going maintenance and change improvements of owning a teardrop trailer ...... and to 'steal' a quote from another here on this web-site = ......"DONE?.... surly you jest, a teardrop is never done" .................. :)

I'm surprised there's not more buzz about him, given his impressive builds since 2012. The extras included—like trailer brakes, aluminum tongue box, and LED tail lights—make it a solid deal. The commercial-grade 2x3 steel frame with leaf springs is a nice touch too. Your positive experience and the solid build quality are definitely noteworthy. Thanks for the heads-up; I'll keep an eye out for O-rama Trailers at the next PNW Tearjerkers meet-up!

= I agree.... he was also a 'great' guy to deal with. He ended up making about '+/-' 40 teardrops and I today know of 4/5 others that still own them = they all still speak 'good' things about owning them. Along with what you mentioned above, it also included mag wheels with a mounted full-sized spare and was insulated, it also included both R/L doors along with the diamond-plate front 'gravel panel' along with a welded to frame bicycle receiver in the rear and R/L leveling supports = so many included extra's that other builders charge $$ for as "options". You got the basic "everything ever needed good stuff" that was included in one basic starting $$$ up front!! He did offer a few options = like a battery/charging system with the Mar-Air ceiling fan (which mine does have) and above that for more $$ there was a radio/CD stereo system offered along with installed roof-rack system's available. He has now closed the shop, I think early '19? Take care.......
(it's all 'loaded/hooked up' right now ='s heading east tomorrow morning, 4000+mile run to ND by way of Kalispel, MT, a teardrop 'get-together' next weekend, ...later...)168278 ...Mar'18 photo the day I bought it...172720todays photo
