And now a word from our sponsors…

It’s been a while since we’ve had advertisers on The Small Trailer Enthusiast, but I want to welcome back to the fold two previous advertisers, The Teardrop Shop and Lance Camper.

The Teardrop Shop has been on the scene for nearly 10 years and is an online, one stop shop for all your teardrop trailer needs. From awnings to covers and everything in between, they’ve got it. But they carry accessories not only for your small teardrop, but for also larger teardrops like the Little Guy Max, T@B 400, and r-pod.
The categories on The Teardrop Shop are endless. And I’m finding they have a lot of great products even if you don’t have a teardrop. Accessories for inside and outside your trailer, as well as clothing, decals, hitching and towing  accessories, solar, cooking needs…the list goes on. You can visit The Teardrop Shop by clicking on the thumbnail on the right column of any of our pages, or just click here and explore: The Teardrop Shop.

Lance Camper needs no introduction. Starting out as a truck camper manufacturer in 1965, Lance Camper has evolved into one of the most respected trailer manufacturers in the industry. It’s no secret if you’ve ever owned or toured a Lance truck camper or trailer that you won’t find a better built product, and their reputation for quality that has lasted for decades. With trailers ranging from 19’8” to 29’5” in length, they’ve got you covered for every stage of your camping life. You can explore the Lance Camper website by clicking on their thumbnail ad on the right side of any page, or by clicking here: Lance Camper

And Now a Word from Our Sponsor(s)

The Small Trailer Enthusiast last week welcomed not one, but two new partners on the web site. Little Guy Worldwide and their online store, The Teardrop Shop, now can be found along the right side of each page you visit on this web site.




Little Guy needs no introduction to the vast majority of you reading this. They’ve been the preeminent teardrop trailer company in the U.S. for several years, and continue to expand. Formed in 2002 in North Canton, Ohio, Little Guy markets and distributes the more than 2,000 trailers a year built by Pleasant Valley Teardrop Trailers in a 65,000 square foot facility in Sugarcreek, Ohio.

Those 2,000-some units built in the past year include the original Little Guy 4-Wide, 5-Wide, and 6-Wide Platform…


The 5 Wide and 6 Wide off road Rough Rider…


The 5’x8′, 5’x10′, and 6’x10′ Silver Shadow…


The lightweight, fiberglass molded myPod…


The aluminum framed T@G…


And the ever popular T@B…


Little Guy is quickly becoming known throughout the RV ownership community as a company that works closely with the owners of their trailers. One example is with the owners of T@Bs built by its previous builder, Dutchmen. When Dutchmen ceased production of the T@B in 2009, Little Guy picked up the torch in 2011 and has continued production of the T@B, all while welcoming the Dutchmen T@B owners within the Little Guy family. Many of the parts on the Little Guy built T@B have parts that can be used on the Dutchmen versions. And compared to the Dutchmen T@Bs, Little Guy has appeared to have dialed in and raised the bar in overall quality of the units produced.

And if a fine array of small trailers weren’t enough, Little Guy has recently released a line of truck campers called the Cirrus.


You’ll also find a link to Little Guy’s online store, The Teardrop Shop, on each page on The Small Trailer Enthusiast. I’ve spent a good amount of time on their website, http://teardropshop.com, and I’ve been very impressed with the wide range of trailer parts, camping gear, and other camping accessories from well respected brands such as Paha Que, Coleman, Yakima, and Zamp Solar. There are many accessories specific to Little Guy products, such as T@B awnings and tent rooms, but the majority of their products and accessories are suitable for RVers from the smallest teardrop to the largest motorhome. The Teardrop Shop web site is laid out very well among several categories and is incredibly easy to navigate.



Little Guy has a huge following on social media, with just under 100,000 on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/golittleguy) and over 3,000 followers on Twitter (https://twitter.com/golittleguy) You’ll find the website for Little Guy (http://golittleguy.com) and The Teardrop Shop (http://teardropshop.com) are easy to navigate and both provide great product detail.

And finally, special thanks go to Little Guy Worldwide owner and president Joe Kicos for helping support The Small Trailer Enthusiast, and I’d ask each of you to visit both web sites and give them your support as well!
