Influenced by wooden sailing yachts, woody station wagons, stage couches, 30's modern, Art Deco and Teardrop trailers of the 40's - the Baja Trippers Tremendous Teardrop Travel Trailer / Toy hauler was born. It will be built of African Mahogany and Mahogany Marine grade plywood. Available in Natural finish or a painted finish.  The Trailer Body is 4' x 10' x 4' with a 4' tongue.


Built Better than a yacht!


All joints are mortise and tenon, some are additionally pegged. The trim is actually structural preventing the sides and roof from flexing. The interior is also A. Mahogany with Baltic Birch storage/galley units. The exterior Mahogany can be finished with a clear spar marine varnish or painted.


Quarter sawn Mahogany


Coyote Playa


The modular storage/galley units are removable so it becomes a mini toy hauler. Built with a 3500 lb rated Dexter axle, on a 3'' x 11/2 '' structural steel channel gusseted frame, it can haul your moto or a small quad or tons of gear, well, ok, maybe not tons, but a lot! It is ready for off road adventure with a 3 axis articulated hitch, 15'' tires and 15 ground clearance.



The finish, either paint or clear varnish, is marine grade. The sides, roof and floor are Sapele Mahogany, Ribbon-Stripe, Marinevectors/560_420 Plywood, Grade A both sides ( except floor is A/B), Quartered/rift sliced, not rotary cut as big box stores. African Mahogany is weather resistance and resistance to fungal attack and it is plantation grown.

( mock up shown is Rotary Cut )
