About Travelbug Teardrop Campers

Travel the highways of Australia in comfort in an affordable, stylish, light-weight, easily towed Travelbug Teardrop Camper - the easy camper.

Explosive Growth

Explosive growth in the domestic camper industry has led to the design and development of the Travelbug, a camper that suits Aussie conditions. With more than 18,000 caravans and campers currently registered in Australia, this design is sure to suit a large slice of the baby-boomer market.

Custom built for you by Mark and Cheryl Byrne, Travelbug Teardrop Campers sleep two in comfort. The teardrop shape is aerodynamic - no huge box dragging behind you means lower fuel costs.


Our Models

Our range of Escape Pod campers come in four models - built to suit you. The Escape Pod models are the Longreach, ECO, DUO and the Freestyler camper. All our campers are on a gal, Aussie made light off-road chassis, with leaf springs and solid axle, light truck tyres and tough off road rims or mags.


The Teardrop Story

Teardrop camping was a very popular way to go camping in the USA in the 1940s to 1960s.

Vintage Camper

The worldwide popularity of the teardrop camper was founded on several fronts, inexpensiveness being one, with a combination of home-made and factory-built models available. 4 cylinder cars can tow the Travelbug Teardrop Camper with minimal effort - easy towing - no huge caravan style box dragging behind you. The shape of the teardrop makes it very aerodynamic, reducing the high fuel consumption that is normally associated with towing a caravan.

Food is always an important part of any trip and the Travelbug teardrop has a galley kitchen in the rear that has the facility for a gas cooker and a cooler box section, coupled with full laminex benchtop. (Cooker and cooler NOT supplied)

Finally, you're not sleeping on the ground in a drafty, flapping camper trailer. In a Travelbug teardrop you're up high and dry in a cozy secured bed with fans, heaters, TV or a DVD playing - or just relaxing to your favorite music playing in the background as you read a great novel under one of our personal reading lights. Our campers are built as close to the original concept as possible, Easy Fun Safe Camping.
