Teardrop Campers?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone own/use one of the little Teardrop style campers? I want something to hunt and fish from mainly so don't want/need a large camper. Just wondering how comforatable they are for one or two people?

If your planning on deer hunting out of 1, or fall bird hunting...bad idea. i dont think they have heaters, and it gets dark at about 5pm deer hunting season! Thats along cold night laying in bed with your huntin buddy!!! lol j/k.

Id think the matress would be the most important thing since thats basically all they have, our full size camper had a stiff mattress, we bought an egg shell thingy...works great!!

side note me and my Dad got our hunting camper for $500, 18', older, roomy, fridge, heat, can cook in it and take care of natures calls. just my 2 pennies

Nope, will mainly be used for spring and Fall Turkey hunting and fly fishing trips. I am thinking of just building one myself so it may or may not have a heater built in. Just something to sleep in and get out of the rain if needed. Want something small that takes up little space and is easy to move around by hand if needed.

Kinda tired of setting up and takng down a tent, takes away from valuable hunting/fishing time if you catch my drift;)

Why not just get a smaller enclosed trailer. Put a window or two in it..throw down a mattress and away you go. Plus you could use it for lots of other stuff and if it rains at least you could sit up and read or something.

Here is my thoughts. If was just me(no wifey) I would be looking at drop down fish house. Very multi purpose. You can camp, ice fish and they have most of the amenities of a tow behind camper.

    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
