Anonymous asked: I absolutely love your campers! They are gorgeous & unique and I'm so excited about your new website. I have been following your progress for a long time and have decided that once I find the funds (finishing paying off student loans right now), I definitely want to purchase a teardrop from you guys. I just wonder how they fare in colder and wetter environments? (I live in Mass) With the convertible style top, have you experienced any issues/do you foresee any issues?
Answer from Hillcrest Teardrop Campers: Our campers are designed to be used rain or shine, however we recommend they be stored in a garage or carport when not in use. The coolest night I’ve spent in one was 53 degrees, and I was nice and warm. We do recommend leaving the screen roof open a little bit, or the sliding window in the door, open a bit, for ventilation while sleeping in this or any Teardrop. Body heat can cause condensation if there is no ventilation. A well-sealed (ie hardtop) camper without ventilation could also be problematic. Always have a source of fresh air, even in cooler weather.
We have camped in the rain, and driven with the campers in the rain, and have not experienced any problems, nor do we foresee any.
