teardrop camper
Why Droplet is our favorite all-weather camping option
Dear fellow camper, before we jump into this post, let us begin with a few personal questions. How many times have you (or your partner) cursed the weather for going South during a multi-day camping trip? Did you ever abort a supposedly dream camping adventure, because the entirety of your clothes and gear got soaked inside your tent (or tent trailer) during a storm? Have you ever looked at those beautiful, shiny trailer campers parked next to you at the campsite,  secretly wishing your small car could tow it, so it was you who got to afford sleeping inside it, [...]
Droplet trailer – A (seemingly) tiny camper built for tall people
When seeing a Droplet trailer for the first time, few would imagine the inside to be very voluminous. Fewer would even think that it hides a perfectly sheltered kitchen space too.  Yet, don't be fooled by the first outside impression. The indoor space comfortably fits a plushy queen sized mattress, and it is spacious enough for two, even if you are a taller person than average like its designer, Pascal Pillon (6ft4"). Droplet  - Initial Criteria Pascal initially designed Droplet in collaboration with his partner Diane to accommodate for their personal desires to have a reliable camping pod to spend [...]
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 [...]

I can’t wait for the first supporters of DROPLET to be camping in their very own teardrop camping trailers this upcoming camping season.

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 [...]
