Back in the 50s the teardrop trailer was a popular, low budget camper you could pull behind almost any car. The two-wheel teardrop design slid into obscurity as the massive Winnebago era took hold.

Moby1′s various models are fully kitted modern campers that will take you and your 2.5 kids anywhere you wanna go.
