Carapate creates eponymous semi-customizable environmentally friendly $16,522 travel trailers that can sleep two adults and one child.
Its makers then combined the teardrop concept with the company’s goal of being environmentally friendly by using marine plywood — which has insulating qualities and is both recyclable and renewable, according to the company — as the main building material for the body of the trailer.
This mission of being eco-friendly is also applied to the amenities and furnishings of the trailer: Carapate has a list of optional add-ons, which it calls backpacks, which include Earth-friendly upgrades such as LED lights and 105-watt solar panels to power the trailer.
These backpack add-ons also further capitalize on the modular arrangement of the trailer, making it semi-customizable and tailorable for whatever the customer wants.
