WELCOME TO THE "CROCODILE TEAR" TEARDROP TRAILER WEBSITE!

Nothing to buy here. . . nothing to sell. . . just the story of one man’s efforts to design and build his teardrop trailer from scratch for as little money as possible: $593!  I did it; so can you!

When I park my Crocodile Tear trailer next to a new Corvette, people come over to look at the trailer instead of the Corvette! Wow, a real chick magnet!

Look at What’s A Teardrop Trailer if you don’t know what one is.

Check out the Crocodile Tear Story to learn more about this amazing little teardrop trailer.

Look at Planning, and Construction Photos to see about 70 pictures taken during construction.

Read my Building Diary to get the specifics of what was done, in what order, and how long it took.

Consider Building Tips if you have any qualms about your ability to build your own teardrop trailer. Examples are included.

Read 72-Hour Kit on use of this trailer in an emergency or disaster.

Go to Links to view websites by other individuals who built their own small trailers.
The best encouragement, information, and help I found on the Internet was Mike Schneider’s “Teardrops and Tiny Trailers” Forum. If you’re serious about building a teardrop, your next step is to join this forum (for free).

Thanks for visiting the “Crocodile Tear” website. You’re welcome to bookmark this site and come back as often as you like. You’ll find occasional updates as time goes on.

The purpose of this website is to share ideas. There are no plans here. I’m not suggesting that anyone should build your teardrop as I did. In fact, everything you do is at your own risk, and I’m not responsible for it. The responsibility is yours!
