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.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
