    I've been really interested in these lately. My wife doesn't care for tent camping. I thought this would be a cool option, especially in an expedition model.

    I see them at the hot rod shows a lot. They are very cool but not real roomy. About the size double mattress on the inside. Perfect for two people for a weekend. Seems like the hot rod crowd uses them to carry luggage and ice chest and place for a nap while at the show. Most of them I see behind their car at the hotel rather then spending the night at the fairgrounds. If you love camping you would be all set. I Googled teardrop trailer plans, this was the first listing. http://www.teardrops.net/plans01.html

    I built one about a year ago. We love it! Even took it to Disney world for a week. It's great for just two people.

    If you want more info on teardrops try www.mikenchell.com/forums
    Tons of info over there.
