On the Road Again with Doug Keister's Teardrops and Tiny Trailers

Teardrops and Tiny Trailers by Douglas Keister takes readers back to the golden age of America’s highway culture, when tag-along trailers followed nearly ever automobile. The demand for vintage trailers—the smaller the better—has risen dramatically in recent years, with the most in-demand trailers being “teardrops,” first manufactured in the 1930s and containing just indoor sleeping space and an outdoor exterior kitchen. Also profiled in the book are “canned ham” trailers, whose shape resembles the profile of a can of ham; small-size examples of America’s most beloved vintage trailer, the Airstream; minuscule gypsy caravans in Europe; and fiberglass trailers made in Canada.
