The latest (as of mid-2015) entry into the teardrop market comes from Grand Junction, Colorado: Vintage Overland.
These teardrop style "caravan" trailers come in 3 flavors:
The Tuco, a basic model that's 4' X 8' and doesn't include a rear hatch.
The Great Escape is 4' X 8' and includes a rear hatch and additional LED lighting.
The T.E. Lawrence is 5' X 8' and includes a larger bed, extra LED lighting, a writing desk, and additional storage.
The trailers start at $10,500 and take around 6 weeks to be hand-built. They're accepting orders for 2016 now.
The Bivouac Off Road Trailer from Tough Terrain is a very robust option that starts at $10,550. Like all Tough Terrain trailers, it's frame is constructed from steel tube and 100% built in Texas with lightweight but very sturdy steel.

Our friends over at ExCop Off Road built this custom trailer to serve their needs when exploring the American southwest. The teardrop-inspired design is painted to match the tow vehicle (a Toyota FJ Cruiser), and it's fully outfitted for plenty of desert adventures!
A major part of our upgrades of the Manley ORV EXPLORE trailer (See July 2014 issue of TCT Magazine), was adding a Rhino Lining to the bed. Not only does the heavy duty lining protect the steel inside the trailer, it makes moving around boxes and gear a little easier as well.
Like any good project, the success of lining a trailer comes down to two factors: Preparation and Expertise.
