We ran into Rob Reeve of Denver, Colorado at this year’s Overland Expo West and got a tour of one of his custom-built 5-by-8 teardrop trailers– a compact and affordable RV alternative that can be pulled by almost any car.
Rob’s company, Hiker Trailer, produces lightweight and affordable teardrop trailers that can pack in everything you need to experience the outdoors in a compact, streamlined space. The 4-by-8 model starts at just $2,894 (while most similarly sized campers can cost around $15,000) and weighs only 640 pounds. The 5-by-8 model he shows us is a deluxe build for customer Sarah Harris, featuring two doors, interior cabinet space, a queen size bed, awning, and rear door with additional storage.
