VIDEO: Would You Pay $26,000 For This Micro Camper?

“The Pika features a large overhead skylight, two sliding windows, and two doors with sliding windows. This allows for an unparalleled feeling of openness, with a minimal feeling of claustrophobia.”

Gnarly price point for what you would think would be an affordable option for a camper trailer but Timberleaf Teardrop Trailers is ready to justify the $26K for something that sits on a 54-inch by 96-inch frame. Watch the video, read the description and make your own decision whether or not its worth the money? If you’re interested in purchasing one GO HERE but be patient because each trailer is meticulously built to order, current lead times are 5 to 7 months:

Meet our newest family member to the Timberleaf Teardrop Trailer lineup, the Pika is a lighter, more compact alternative to our Classic model. Built for rugged simplicity, the Pika may be just what your heart desires.Named after the American Pika, a small rabbit-like mammal that lives and thrives in the high-alpine terrain throughout the Rocky Mountains, the Pika is an adventurous miniature rabbit that has evolved to traverse the rough and rocky tundra. Our Pika Teardrop Trailer is thirty-six percent smaller than our Classic model, featuring a 54-inch by 96-inch frame, the Pika offers all of the quality craftsmanship Timberleaf Trailers has become known for, in a lighter and more nimble package.

Weighing in at 1025lbs for the base model, the Pika is easily towed by most passenger vehicles. The Pika is available with all of the same aluminum color options for the sides, and clear anodized aluminum top for steadfast good looks for the life of the trailer.

Available in the same three suspension packages as our Classic model, the Pika is shown above equipped with our Offroad Package, with black powder-coated fenders, and custom-matched wheels for this Toyota*. The Offroad Package features Timbren Axleless suspension with a 4″ lift, 33″ BFG All-Terrain tires, electric brakes, rock armor, and Max Coupler articulating hitch. The offroad is built for whatever adventure awaits. Shown below is the Pika All-Road, featuring 30×9.5r15 tires on aluminum mod-style wheels, smooth aluminum round fenders, and Timbren Axle-less suspension with electric brakes. The All-road package is built to tow behind today’s AWD Crossover SUVs, and will go anywhere your car will go – whether your adventure is highway-bound, or forest service roads and beyond; the All-road package is ready.   

Bringing through as many of the details from our Classic Teardrop into the Pika, we offer all of the same retro-inspired laminate options to make up a 21″x54″ main countertop, and 10″ deep upper countertop. A pair of sliding bypass doors, four USB ports, a 12v accessory port, and GFI outlet. Dual overhead LED dome lights on the inside of the hatch are activated by a switch on the power panel adjacent to the USB ports.

We’re excited to introduce our partnership with Dometic. We have built the galley around Dometic’s CFX-35W 12v refrigerator; with 35 liters of capacity, the fridge allows you to keep your food cold and fresh for days on end with no concern of ice ever again. The fridge slide can also accommodate a Yeti 35-liter cooler as well.The lower galley door provides additional storage space, and access to our 100-amp-hour deep cycle battery, and serviceable access to our charging center.   

Compact and spacious, rarely do such words work so well together. Our Pika’s cabin is built around a double size mattress, slightly more compact than our Classic, at 54″ wide, the Pika comfortably sleeps two in its cozy cabin. Differing from the Classic, which features a headboard with sliding bypass doors for storage, and a full-width cabinet above your feet, in order to maintain the spacious feel inside, we strayed from our tradition and introduce a series of stretch-netting cargo storage locations – one on either side of the mattress by the doors, and a larger one above the foot of the bed. We have also included a pair of USB ports and GFI outlet at the foot of the bed.The cabin is illuminated by three LED lamps, two reading lamps above the head of the bed, and a dome lamp toward the foot of the bed. All of our cabin LED lights are a warm white, which adds to the warm inviting feeling of our trailer.For ventilation, we offer two Maxxair fan options; the base package includes a 4-speed exhaust fan with manual-opening lid; while the upgrade is a 10-speed thermostatically controlled fan, with intake and exhaust, and rain sensor.With the smaller size, our biggest hurdle was maintaining the spacious and luxurious feel of the interior of the cabin, without eliminating storage entirely. The Pika features a large overhead skylight, two sliding windows, and two doors with sliding windows. This allows for an unparalleled feeling of openness, with a minimal feeling of claustrophobia.
