The Timberleaf teardrop trailer sports retro flair combined with an acute attention to detail. Founder Kevin Molick’s background in cabinetmaking and woodworking are evident in the Timberleaf’s design features, from the aluminum siding to the dovetail joinery. The interior is made with finished birch with alder details, such as the molding around an in-built skylight.

The Timberleaf can be hauled by a Subaru Outback.

The cabin comes equipped with a customized queen-sized bed, which is full length and only three inches narrower than a standard queen mattress. Molick has maximized the use of space in the cabin with customized cubbies behind the headboard and an additional shelf for storage above. Unlike most trailers, the cabin also lets in a lot of natural light, with the skylight, two doors, and two windows.

The standard trailer comes with a four-inch-thick, dual density foam mattress.

You can choose from 50 stunning, retro-inspired laminate countertop options, and all the fixtures are stainless steel. There are also USB ports to charge personal electronics and appliances.
