Given this climate, it is a good time to start a handmade furniture business.

We’ve rounded up our favorite teardrop trailers to buy in the past, but the latest to catch our eye comes from across the pond in Lithuania. Tiny Camper makes two different teardrop models, both in colorful graphics and with a fresh feel compared to the rather stale designs of some American campers.

The Tearcuby (1,650 pounds) is the larger teardrop that sleeps a family in a queen size bed and a child-size bunks. The Mini (1,410 pounds) is Tiny Camper’s smaller model, meant for two people to sleep on a queen size bed with storage above.

Like all teardrops, cooking is accessed from the rear of the trailer. The kitchen area includes a large countertop with storage for food and tools and the option to add a gas tank, fridge, and sink. Other perks include a ventilation fan, lighting, power sockets, and doors on each side.

The larger Tearcuby costs approximately $14,400 while the smaller Mini starts at about $10,000. Prices don’t include shipping costs, and although Tiny Camper does not have any U.S. dealers, they can ship to the United States for an extra fee (we’ve waiting to hear on exactly how much). Tiny Camper also sells DIY kits made up of different parts so people can create their own teardrop trailer.

While many of the amenities are similar to teardrops that we’ve seen, we like the modern look of Tiny Campers, especially the light wood, fun exterior graphics, and large picture windows. See more, this way, and if you’re in the market for a camper, don’t forget to read out guides to the best camper vans, lightweight trailers, and teardrops.

The Mini camper features a pop-up table and cabinets inspired by star constellations.
Both models boast a panoramic rooftop window.
