Road trip! These two simple words can get just about anyone excited for a new adventure. Whether you’re planning a staycation, quick weekend jaunt or a 365-day trip around the country, comfort is of the utmost importance on a road trip.
While many people dream of owning the granddaddy supreme motorhome to be able to tour the country in, others prefer something a bit more compact and environmentally friendly. That’s where the Gidget teardrop camper comes in.
Don’t let the miniature nature of the Gidget compact camper fool you. The designers did an amazing job of adding everything you need to travel in comfort into this tiny trailer – much like the pioneers of the tiny house movement. The patented slide-out nearly doubles the internal space of this compact camper in one quick and simple action.
Depending upon which Gidget model you go with, the living space fits a queen size bed that converts into a sitting area with a table and full entertainment center. The kitchen space features plenty of;
- storage drawers,
- a sink,
- two burners and
- a cooler that can be upgraded to a refrigerator/freezer combo.
You can even get a toilet and hot shower with pressurized water to boot! There’s no need to rough it on your road trip when you bring Gidget along.
Don’t want to camp in a campground, but still want power for your entertainment center? These compact environmentally friendly campers are even solar powered! You won’t have to worry about running out of power on your road trip with the Gidget’s 110W mono-crystalline solar power system, deep cycle battery and inverter, which can be recharged easily by the on board solar panels. If you aren’t getting great sun, the battery can also be recharged with the Anderson plug.
Best of all, you won’t have to drain your retirement fund to get your very own road-ready Gidget compact camper. Current models start at just under $20,000 and go up from there, depending upon the features you want to add in.
Where would you take your first road trip in the Gidget Compact Camper?
