A Teardrop Trailer Offers Convenience

One of the most significant advantages of owning a teardrop trailer is the convenience it provides. Take the So-Cal Teardrops model “Buzz Off” as an example. Despite its small size, and it is the smallest of So-Cal models available, this teardrop trailer offers plenty of conveniences.

For starters, a teardrop trailer provides a comfortable and cozy place to sleep. No more having to set up a tent, find a flat spot to sleep, and deal with the discomfort of sleeping on the cold, hard ground. The “Buzz Off” comes equipped with a 4-inch thick mattress that provides ample indoor sleeping space for two adults.

Moreover, the “Buzz Off” comes with built-in storage and cabinetry that eliminates the need for packing and unpacking gear every time you hit the road. This model is designed to be efficient and simple, so it doesn’t come with a full kitchen, but the flat fenders create a workspace for cooking, and there are cubbies and flip-down shelves inside the cabin to store utensils and food items.

A teardrop trailer like the “Buzz Off” offers convenience and comfort that tent camping simply cannot match. From a cozy place to sleep to built-in storage and cabinetry, the “Buzz Off” is an excellent example of why a teardrop trailer is a smart investment for outdoor enthusiasts.

A Teardrop Trailer is Much Easier to Tow Than Larger Options

One of the biggest advantages of teardrop trailers is their ease of towing, especially when compared to larger, bulkier options. Teardrops are designed to be lightweight and maneuverable, making them easy to tow even with smaller vehicles. This means that there’s no need to invest in a big, expensive truck just to pull your trailer.

Take the So-Cal model “Rover” for example. This teardrop trailer is built with high-quality materials and meticulously refined in every detail. Its compact size, measuring just 4 x 9 feet, makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces and navigate narrow roads. The Rover weighs in at just 920 lbs, with a tongue weight of around 115 lbs, which means you can tow it with smaller vehicles with ease.

Despite its small size, the Rover still offers plenty of amenities to make your camping trip comfortable. It features a two-burner stove, space for a cooler or fridge, and storage areas tucked under the rear galley lid. The galley counter height is 40 inches, and the galley hatch opens to a height of 78 inches, making it easy to access your cooking equipment and food. The bed size is 4x47x78 inches, providing enough room for a good night’s sleep.

Teardrop Trailers Can Go Just About Anywhere

Teardrop trailers are incredibly versatile, and can go just about anywhere. Whether you’re traveling on the highway, taking rough mountain roads, or even venturing onto trails meant for Jeeps and other off-road vehicles, teardrops can handle it all. So-Cal’s Extreme Off-Road Teardrop models are perfect examples of this. 

These teardrop trailers were designed specifically for those who want to rock crawl with their trailer, and feature a chassis design that is similar to the off-road model but with added features for a more robust frame. This includes gusset reinforcements in all corners, straight axle with electric brakes, a shock reservoir system, and mud tires.

All of the cabin designs in the Extreme Off-Road Teardrops include marine cabinetry for both the galley and interiors, reinforced ribbing, and double sealing in all exposed openings. Additionally, each model comes with a flat rack for storing all the necessary equipment when out in the wilderness, or you can add a rooftop tent, as shown above.

The Extreme package also includes extended tongue, tube fenders, Rancho shocks, and an articulating hitch as standard features, making it more appealing for true adventurers who want to take their teardrop trailer to the limit.

Teardrop Trailers are Customizable to Your Needs

Teardrop trailers are highly customizable, which means you can choose from a variety of options to make them meet your specific needs. So-Cal Teardrop Trailer models come with various customization options

First one you should think about is the airbag suspension with an air compressor. This option provides additional support for heavy loads and allows you to raise and lower the trailer to the desired height for camping or storing the trailer in a garage. You can also use the air compressor for your tires.

Another customization option for your teardrop trailer is the front storage box, which measures 16 inches deep by 20 inches tall and 36 inches wide in the back and 21 inches wide in the front. This storage box features a stainless steel locking latch and comes in different materials, such as polished aluminum diamond deck, powder-coated aluminum diamond deck, and granite coat steel.

Additionally, you can opt for a 50 Qt. ARB Refrigerator with an SCT Fridge Slide, which is perfect for keeping food and beverages chilled or frozen while on your adventures in a teardrop trailer. The fridge is installed in a locking slide that allows complete access when extended from the galley. This option comes with the SCT Sideways Fridge Slide, which has an all-aluminum construction and a 500-pound capacity with Accuride lock-in/lock-out slides.

Lastly, you can add the ARB Awning 2000, which includes mounts for a roof rack/basket. This retractable awning is waterproof and UV protected, takes only 30 seconds to deploy, and is secured in a heavy-duty nylon reinforced PVC bag.

Of course, many more customization options are available, but these are just a few examples of how you can personalize your teardrop trailer to fit your unique needs.
