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. Some of our customers have added a small portable toilet that fits perfectly under the dinette seat of the Grizzly, Kodiak, and Polar. That toilet can be found here.

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.

Select Rustic Trail Campers now come standard with both a 5,000 BTU AC and a electric heater to ensure comfort no matter the season!
