Wyoming Woody Teardrop Plans

Here is the architectural diagrams derived from the SketchUp model for the Wyoming Woody Teardrop. It is in PDF form so it should be easy to view from about any device or print if you choose.

A quick note about use of this document. Much of my personal time, effort, and creativity has gone into its creation. The result would not be as good if it were not for the help of countless others in the wonderful teardrop community who offered advice or techniques and never asked for a penny in return. It is in that spirit that I want to ensure that this document remain open for use in the teardrop building community. Therefore I am releasing it under the “copyleft” license detailed here

    Thank you so much for putting this up. Your trailer is the inspiration for me starting on mine this weekend, and while I have been able to follow your excellent forum posts for the most part, this’ll be a huge help!

    • ryan_teardropbuilder

      Your more than welcome! Good luck on your build!

        A very good heads-up. I’ve always thought it made sense to build the galley cabinets as slide in from the rear units. This allows easy access for internal panels install/removal or the mattress. Serious planning though….

    I am impressed at the details you documented during the building of your trailer. My husband and I would like to build our own and this is an amazing site for a wealth of information. Thank you for your willingness to share so freely what you learned.

    How much does the finished trailer weigh?

    • ryan_teardropbuilder

      Almost exactly 1,000 pounds unloaded.

      • Paul

        What does that include? Propane tank? Storage Box? I’m trying to get a hitch for a Ford Fiesta and total recommended weight is 1500lbs to 1 ton.

        • Everything but gear, food, and loaded cooler. Battery and bed are included. You will be hard pressed to hit 1200 pounds with everything. Btw, we just use the small 1# propane tanks for our Coleman grill. They fit right in the cupboard next to the grill!

    Where do you get plans

  • John

    Ryan, I tried to find the interior measurements, did I miss them? I’m trying to figure out the size of the bed you can fit in your design.

    • John

      Ok, I think I found it. 76 inches. So you’ve designated it for a standard full size bed? 54×74?

      • Sorry I wasn’t fast enough on the reply. 🙂 The dimensions for the bed space are 59 1/4″ x 76″ or a short Queen size, a standard Queen is 60″ x 80″.

        • John

          I may try and adjust design for a standard queen.

          • One note of caution if you plan on using a standard mattress, have a plan for squeezing it through the door once your teardrop is complete. I know of a few builders that had this exact problem! I used a 4″ thick HD foam mattress which is relitively inexpensive, folds easily, and is very easy to cut down to whatever size you need. Amazingly it is even more comfortable than my bed at home.

            Good luck!

            Ikea sells their extremely comfortable mattresses rolled up and vacuum sealed. Should fit right through the door then cut it open and let it expand.

  • Impressive plans and work. I am a boatbuilder and am inspired to build one of these sweet little “land boats.” I certainly like yours the best!

    I love this teardrop, but am having trouble with the PDF. I right click, but it only wants to save as a html file. Is there another place I can download the pdf of the plans? Thank you!

    • Left click, don’t do a right click and “Save AS”. For some reason it won’t work with the download plugin I am using for the website.

    Any idea how much it costs to build? It is beautiful.
