Vancouver Island Road Trip – Nanaimo -> Nanoose Bay -> Bowser -> Victoria
DROPLET TRAILERS hit the road on April 13th to Vancouver Island, in order to check the local RV Show in Nanoose Bay & meet with  prospective early adopters. Over 3 days, we traveled through 500+Km of scenic coastal drives and rain forest. Through those miles, we averaged 9L/100Km with our Toyota Matrix.  This place is a true Camper paradise. Dense forests, wild beaches, low population density, cheaper gas than the Lower mainland, and an array of charming coffee shops & antiques to visit. One known issue: it tends to rain frequently, and the coast gets a lot of wind. Where [...]

10 reasons why investing into a Droplet is better than Bitcoin
Unless you have been living under a rock, you MUST have heard of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies. 2017's hottest financial assets hit a major crash in early 2018. The upswings made some wealthier than they could have ever imagined, while latecomers to the party ended up much poorer than they bargained for. Investing is a risky and stressful game, especially within our digital day and age. That's why we want to speak to you about another investing option. Something more tangible than Cryptos. Much more secure, steady, and reliable than the NASDAQ and the TSX combined. And the best part [...]

Buy it, Rent it, Share it
When we first created DROPLET, the goal wasn't limited to designing a great camper trailer for ourselves. We wanted to build a sense of community and connection around it. That's why we put ours to rent on various public web platforms last summer. The pilot program was so successful that we decided to grow our DROPLET rental fleet for 2018, out of our headquarter in Vancouver BC. DROPLET is so easy to tow, and it adapts to just almost any vehicle equipped with a 2" hitch. Almost anyone with a bit of training can do it. That's why we are creating [...]
