Are you looking to upgrade from a tent? Are you tired of sleeping on the ground? We designed the Koala Bear for those customers looking for a lightweight, affordable, yet well-made tiny camper. What makes the Koala Bear special is it’s 5′ ceiling while maintaining the ability to fit into most standard-sized garages. While most teardrop campers are just a bed on wheels, the Koala offers a small walkway allowing for a place to change or for pets to sleep.

Built Simple. Built Strong.

The Koala Bear may be light at 1,150 lbs. but it is built strong with high-quality materials. No particleboard is used in our campers, instead, beautiful knotty pine birch lines the interior ceiling giving you a truly rustic feel. A shelf also crafted from birch comes standard to store your gear. Interior flooring is a heavy-duty wood plank vinyl designed to withstand years of camping.

Label displaying dry weight of 1,150 pounds.

Rustic Trail does not offer any customizations of campers.

Bathrooms: At Rustic Trail Teardrops it is our goal to build a simple, easy to maintain, long-lasting camper. Because of this, we do not offer any bathrooms, doing so would add plumbing and holding tanks that would require winterization, more maintenance, and further complicate the camping experience. To make things simple Rustic Trail now offers a portable cassette toilet!

Kitchens: One thing that makes Rustic Trail Teardrops different than other campers in its class is our unique interiors. All models of our campers are more than just a bed on wheels. Our elevated RV queen-sized beds offer a comfortable sleeping experience and a small walkway to get changed not laying down, our cabinetry adds thoughtfully designed storage, and the available dinette in the Grizzly& Kodiak gives a place of refuge to eat and play games on rainy days. Adding a rear galley kitchen would consume the majority of this interior space. Furthermore, our camper designs create a solid one-piece seamless roof that prevents leaks, a rear galley would eliminate this with its hinge located in the rear of the roof, further adding to the risk of leaks.

If there is no kitchen then where do I cook? Great question! Most of our customers either use a portable Blackstone Griddle that requires no pots and pans or they bring a small portable kitchen. For washing dishes, we recommend a Collapsible Wash Basin and portable water container.

The following Rustic Trail models (Kodiak Lite, Papa Bear, Grizzly, Kodiak, and Polar) now come standard with both a 5,000 BTU AC and a electric heater to ensure comfort no matter the season!
