February 2003 – Our original showroom in North Canton, Ohio

Late in 2002, an idea was hatched in North Canton, Ohio to bring the past to the present. The idea to resurrect and take teardrop camper trailers to the masses was taken over to a couple brothers in Elkhart, Indiana where they began prototyping a 4×8 Retro trailer in their garage.

As the quantity of trailers ordered increased, the operation was moved out of a garage and into a manufacturing facility. Over the next couple years, production gradually and consistently ramped up from a 2-3 a week to a 3-4 a day.

From the twenty or so units produced during that first year to the thousands that are now out on the highways and bi-ways across the globe (17 different models now available), Little Guy Teardrop Camper Trailers are the most identifiable, economical and modern teardrops on the road today.

Teardrop History

Teardrop camper trailers evolved after World War II, and were originally constructed with materials obtained from surplus markets. The chassis were made of steel U channel or from round steel tubing, and the wheels came fromJeeps that were salvaged from sunken ships. The exterior skins were usually made from the wings of World War II bombers.

While a lot has changed since the introduction of teardrop trailers on the American highway, the reasons for owning a teardrop trailer are the same today as they were when your father or grandfather built his teardrop in the family garage.

Teardrop trailers are sleek, aerodynamic, and practical. Depending on the model, your teardrop trailer can sleep up to three adults or two adults and several children. Little Guy teardrop trailers cab be pulled by any vehicle with a hitch—even the smallest of vehicles such as the Mini Cooper or the VW Beetle can easily tow a Little Guy teardrop trailer.
