The Vistabule Teardrop Trailer provides an enhanced camping experience by eliminating the inconvenience of tenting while offering the stylish practicality of a radically redesigned camping trailer, according to a news release.

Streamlined and weighing just 1,220 pounds, Vistabule can be towed behind nearly any small car—making it an efficient and appealing travel option with rising gasoline, hotel, and restaurant prices, said Bert Taylor, founder of Minnesota Teardrop Trailers.

“Everyone loves the classic Airstream style,” added Taylor, who also served as Vistabule design engineer.

“But I, like many, kept searching for a more practical, affordable, and towable camping trailer to fit my lifestyle. Vistabule is designed for those of us in mind.”

The Vistabule is different from other teardrop trailers. It is Vistabule’s signature oversized windows and “cab-forward design” that set it apart by offering panoramic views that no other teardrop trailer offers.

You’re oriented to the front where all the action is. The huge window affords a view to the world as well as the sky.

The queen sized bed converts in seconds into a delightful sitting space with a fold up table and the smartly fitted kitchen allows people to prepare meals while protected from rain and sun.

In addition, the trailer makes dispersed, non-campground sites more accessible with its self-contained electrical power, water tanks, and propane tank.

“Prior to launch, Vistabule has been well-received by active outdoor enthusiasts of all ages who want to be close to the action at trailheads, rivers, and climbing routes,” stated Taylor.

“This fall, the company sponsored several U.S. trail running races and fielded the Vistabule Racing Team—with team members placing among the top finishers at each competition.”

Each trailer is custom made to your order.

To simplify the process, Vistabule offers three basic packages from which to start:

  • Basic: $9,450
  • Standard: $12,895
  • Deluxe: $13,995

A variety of add-on features are available. These include an air conditioner, propane furnace, solar panels, bicycle rack, and Igloo cooler in various sizes.

“We will ship your trailer to you, or you can come to Minnesota and stay in our beautiful state parks while exploring the ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes’ and then winding your way home,” said Taylor.
