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.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
