Wouldn't this be great for your overnight ride trip

I saw these on another forum, teardrop trailers. A place to sleep, storage and a little kitchen out back. Small enough to be towed be even a small car and fairly cheap. There are even plans to build your own. They were first popular in the thirties, when you had to pull a trailer with 30hp. Search teardrop trailers. The photo came from here: http://home.centurytel.net/edevold/

I can remember when they were common. Sleep inside, cook outside, sometimes with a tent which enclosed the cooking area. The back would open up like the trunk of a car.

I came across a couple camping in one a few years ago in Santee, SC. They towed it with a Buick Century and said they were touring cross country with it.
