ARMADILLO, Our Products and Us
Hard-Shelled, Lightweight, Aerodynamic Teardrop Campers
First let me say emphatically, we enjoy teardrop camping here at Armadillo, we enjoy building teardrop campers, but most of all we enjoy seeing customers using and owning our campers. Just like Honda™ motorcycles advertised in the 1960’s, “You meet the nicest people on a Honda™”, we feel the same way about the teardrop camping communities and our customers.
Tejas Grande Teardrop:
We currently build a lightweight 5’x10’ camper we call the Tejas Grande. There are a couple of interpretations for the name “Tejas”, one reference is it means, friendly, another is that it means Texas in Southwest native languages. After camping in a Tejas you might add a third reference to the meaning of Tejas, and that is COMFORT. Check out the Tejas on our Models page for more detail. The name Grande is for recognizing the 54” tall entry door we designed into the Tejas Grande. A taller entry door makes entering and leaving the cabin quick and convenient. It even features a pull-out step and grab bar for people not able to take large vertical step-ups. Campers step in and out of this camper, crawling in through a small door is not necessary. This 1095 lbs. +/- camper is light enough to be towable by smaller cars. Questions? Read our FAQ. Ready to Purchase, Contact Us. Need to Finance? Visit Trailer Solutions Financial.
Our newest model is the Vaquero (Cowboy in English). Extra attention was given/taken in the design and building process of this 48” x 88” super light camper. We also special build a 40” x 88” single person model we refer to as the Vaquerito. Depending on how the 4’ wide Vaquero camper is equipped, it can weigh as little as 425 lbs., at this minimal curb weight it is towable with micro cars, trikes and larger motorcycles.
The Vaquero has adjustable height torsion axles so lowering ground clearance is an easy change to fit your vehicle height. It has a small portable 25lbs removable AC option for a little extra sleeping comfort in hot humid weather conditions. The Vaquero is our least expensive camper but has many of the comfort features found in our larger Tejas Grande model. Vaquero can be built with or without a rear lift hatch and galley area. It is available with one or two large cabin doors; two people can occupy the 4’ wide model without crawling over one another for cabin ingress/egress. It is not a box featuring a tent, but a hard-sided camper especially beneficial to our customers while traveling/camping in Bear Country. We have kept this one simple, maintenance free, lightweight and comfortable. Why sleep on the ground any longer?
