A Teardrop Trailer Is Easy on the Gas Mileage
It’s no secret that pulling a camper can affect your gas mileage. Of course this varies with the size of the camper, the weight of the camper, and to some degree, the aerodynamic design of the camper.
Whether the price of gas is up (usually) or down (rarely), you will save money on fuel when you are towing a PeeWee teardrop trailer. These three factors make a PeeWee teardrop trailer economical:
- They are so small that they ride in the dead air space behind the tow vehicle so there is virtually no wind drag caused by the trailer.
- They are aerodynamic in design
- They are lightweight teardrop trailers even though we build them to be the strongest in the industry. See details on the construction of each model: Big Brother, Half Pint, ECONO, KnockAbout, Small Fry.
So, when you are towing a PeeWee teardrop trailer, you can be assured that you are getting the best gas mileage possible. So go ahead, plan your trip for 2,000 miles or more, and leave home knowing that towing one of our little campers shouldn’t impact your gas mileage by even as much as a half a mile per gallon.
There's No Need to Buy a Tow Vehicle
In almost all cases, it is not necessary to buy a different vehicle for towing because the vehicle you own is probably fully capable of towing one of our small teardrop trailers. Even if your tow vehicle is a 4 cylinder, you should, in most cases, be able to tow a PeeWee teardrop trailer. Learn more about towing a teardrop trailer here.
You Save Money on Motel Rooms
Saving gas is not the only advantage of camping in a PeeWee teardrop camper. You also save money on hotel rooms. With a PeeWee teardrop you decide when to stop, where to stop, and you can rest assured you are sleeping in cleanliness and comfort. Even if you choose to pull into a campground, $20 - $40 per night is much better on the budget than the cost of a hotel room.
Many of our customers have to travel extensively for work. They have done the math and found that their savings on hotels alone will pay for the cost of a PeeWee camper. For example, if you have to spend 90 nights a year in hotel rooms that average $140 a night, you could spend $40 per night at a campground and save $100 per night. That's a total savings of $9,000!
