Easy ordering, handled design changes easily. Early enough that they were happy to do it. Delivery was about 5 weeks early. Big surprise! Since I was ill at the time, they went out of their way to deliver it to my daughter's house about an hour away at no charge to me.
I personally saw it for the first time last night. Pulled it home today. It’s exactly what I ordered! Can’t wait to get moved in and put it into action.

It was an amazing experience to have our teardrop built to the specifications we requested.It was great working with Bud and Linda.  Best of all was being able to rent a teardrop before we purchased, helping to make our decision more clear.

I rented one of their trailers for the weekend. I'm 6' 2" and the camper was surprisingly well insulated and comfortable with 2 people for its size and weight. I couldn't feel any extra weight while towing the trailer up to tahoe. I will definitely rent from them again and plan on purchasing one of their trailers if I see myself renting the trailer often.

Bought our custom built trailer July'15. Took approximately 3 months given the queue ahead of us. Writing this post 2 years since taking possession.Let me start w/ LOVE the trailer! Wife and I use to be tent campers, but this was quite a chore. No central place for all our camping gear, meaning invariably leaving something critical in a bin at home. The self "deflating" air beds we used in the tent were also quite annoying. Having this trailer greatly simplified our camping trips. Since buying, we have averaged ~1 trip per month, through all types of weather. Rock solid build quality. Easy to tow. Very comfortable to sleep in, not only because of the 6" of memory foam, but also this thing is so quiet inside. Noisy camping neighbors are not an issue.Bud is the owner and builder, and his advice on which options to get or not was spot on for our build. Even after ownership, I brought the trailer back to Bud for a couple of issues, both created by me, Bud stepped up and fixed the trailer at a more than generous price. He would even add some idiot proofing to the trailer to ensure I wouldn't "break" it again.Great proprietor and product!

American Teardrop builds a fantastic teardrop trailer. It is beautiful to look at, functionally designed, super roadworthy, and shows excellent craftsmanship. Bud and Linda were a total pleasure to work with, and took all of my questions, option tweaks, and more questions with friendly, timely professionalism. We could not be happier with the finished product! Tom and Liz Patterson - Seattle, WA

We bought our Merlin 5'x9' teardrop from American teardrops in late 2016. Bud always has a waiting list for his teardrops so we ordered it months a head. We added a sturdier frame for off roading, and more kitchen cabinets .As a building contractor I'm well aware that little things will sometimes go wrong- But Bud and Linda have always been there  for us- once with a small water issue and the other time modifying a latch for us. We love our Merlin. We transitioned from camping and find we get out as much more  now- and are always looking forward to the next time!. We like having a minimalist camping  experience and having an outdoor kitchen. The interior is great with a queen size bed and  6" foam . . When we arrive at a campground we can park and head off hiking and in the am we just close up the doors and can move on.
