Hello there. I am a former sailboat owner for the last 15 years (Hunter 30) and have gotten over the "go out the Gate and turn left" syndrome now that I've turned 60.
But . . . I still am somewhat of a wanderlust so since I have a small pickup I have been looking into what would be a good choice to get to pull around. It looks to me that a "Teardrop" of some kind would just the cats meow. The problem is, do I build or do I buy. Since I am a great project starter, but not so good of a finisher I probably should buy something already to go or almost that way.
Any tips or leads would be appreciated. Would also like some personal feelings from someone who has used their teardrop. Thanks ya'll for readin'.
Well went looking for the Wiseburn school district and by chance found your site, very interesting. Did you know that they are now building a new Dana Middle School. I sure did enjoy your old class pictures, you should send them to the Dana schoo site to see if they will post em. Worth a try, again enjoyed you site... DAC
Just becoming interested in building a Teardrop.
Getting to old to backpack,have done the treck from Ga to Maine.Looking for a new experience.
I'm going to surprise my husband with the plans to build a teardrop. Can't wait to "help" him get started! Love your site
Thanks for a great site, I'm going to start building mine when i get back to work. Gotta get my shoulder fixed first.
Have a Blessed day
Super Site. I am a street rodder, and love to build cars, airplanes and other stuff. Just finishing up my street rod '27 Ford Highboy Roadster that will double as street transportation and run at Bonneville in the D/SR Class. I am way ahead of myself, as my roadster won't be done until late this year, but want to spend some time while on the road selling automotive accessories to work on the teardrop, which will be my next project. Thanks for sharing all your information, I can't wait to get started. Got your web from the Westhoff web site.....Thanks, God Bless You and Have a Great Day! Make sure you watch Overhaulin', maybe you will see a familiar name.....
Great job on both the site as well as the tear drop.
I was searching for home built van conversions and found you. What a great project, and so well done.
Its very nice to see folks still have these talents today to build something so fun and practical. Its always those projects that we put our time into that are the most rewarding. GOOD on you!!!
I have a great idea for a micro wood burning stove in there....lol
Cheers and beers,
did a search on teardrop trailers and came to your site. EXCELLENT info and ideas. Any info would be helpful, and I'll definately be back from time to time. Thanks again. Marti
I was checking out some websites and found yours. Thanks for the pics and info. I hope to start my teardrop as soon as the weather warms. Can't trust the weather here. Be good, be kind, be careful. Sunday
THIS IS A NICE SITE VERY GOOD THANKS
I am still dead keen on building a teardrop and your website is definitely the best I have found. I really appreciate the time you have taken to detail so many areas. There is virtually nothing available locally in New Zealand so the web is the business !To have a practice run I have just built form scratch a luggage style trailer (similar to a go kart race trailer) which is aluminum clad. What would you recommend for polishing the Aluminum? I don't want it to be chrome finish but I just want to be able to buff out scratches and keep it maintained.My wife is now nervously sitting by as I start dreaming of the Teardrop project as we both know it will become an obsession !
Just looking for Ideas--Great photo's--lots of detail. Want to build a small one person lightweight one to pull behind my Goldwing. Nice Build. I will be back.
Love the new look to the guest book....!!!!
Just wanted to stop by Uncle Dennys Corner and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
You've done a marvelous job keeping the Unfried clan together and teaching us all how to build your great Teardrop.
Keep up the great work and thanks again,
Good job on your teardrop,very informative site.Thinking of building one to tow behind tr6.Mike
Thankyou for a very informative website.Including info. on bogus plans.
I have recently purchased plans from Kuffel Creek as I believe them to be better than most.
Being in Australia, information on Teardrops is almost non existent.Thank goodness for the internet!!!
With the detailed photos and information on your site I believe all will be well.
Thankyou again and I'm looking forward to mk2 from you.
Cheers for now,
IT's nice to see all of the "familiar" faces! The family tree helped to put all of the puzzle pieces on the site together and find the connection with my family (i.e. Art and Alice Unfried are my Grandparents) Thanks for the great site

THANKS YOU FOR YOUR GOOD WORK AND HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.
I'm Back! I told you I had some Photos to share and it has taken me awhile to get back to sending them to you. I will send you a mail with the pictures attached.
I have an old boat trailer that hauled an 18 footer, it has a 4 inch channel frame. I'm looking at different ideas to retro-fit this trailer into a modern Tear Drop. I have 69 inches between fender wells and a 10 foot square frame before the hitch assembly.
Long time no see... Mom (Donna) gave me this URL awhile ago, and told me about your teardrop. Great job! Love the pics. Hopefully I can swing by next time I'm in town and check it out. Take care!
Great site! Just started building on our teardrop this weekend. Hope it turns out half as good as yours!! I know it'll look good being pulled behind our beetle..
I'll be back.. Thanks!!!!
Nice web site for the Unfried's! What do you do for a living?
My Father is David Unfried.
I have some family photo's I would like to send you for the site.
I love your teardrop pages. They have given me that detail of how it is done that I needed. I am gathering the parts to start on my teardrop soon.
Thanks for sharing your experiance with all of us.
Hey Denny, Almost finished with MY tear. Hope to take the maiden voyage Memorial weekend. Thanks for all your help.
I just sent you an e-mail, been so busy building I haven't visited your site lately. Very nice will be back more often.
Denny in CO
Thanks for the great information provided by this site and the warning about the eBay scam on the opening teardrop page. I almost bought one of those teardrop plan CD's. :-)
