Drop Campers was conceived and incubated in 2017 as a result from a desire for freedom and adventure, the consequence of a vital, professional, and family history of two brothers, Mario and Albert Fernández
They both share a fascination with nature, outdoor activities, motors, and design. This confluence made them investigate in a travel alternative that would allow them a style and philosophy of life more connected with the essential and based on experiences.
During a family trip to the United States, they discovered the classic teardrop trailers, small, beautiful, functional, comfortable, off-road, aerodynamic, self-sufficient, with a story to tell, very popular in other countries and with a great future ahead. So, they decided to build them for themselves, and encouraged by family and friends, they decided to provide the opportunity to others to enjoy these longings for freedom and mobility.
They also wanted to value traditional and artisan’s trades in a post-industrialized era, incorporating new trends and technology, but preserving those emotions that can be conveyed when materials are worked with respect.
As a sustainable-minded company, we are constantly looking for new ways to take care of the environment and minimize our own global footprint. We understand teardrop trailers as a new way of outdoor living and traveling freedom. Our ambition is to create a mini caravan model that can become a change agent for a most sustainable way of traveling and that generates well-being.
From the beginning, we have been driven by a philosophy and values that we strive to reflect in everything we do. We believe that apart from “makers”, we can also be modest “changemakers”, to make this a better place to live, inspiring, connecting and equipping those who pursue lifestyle changes that have a positive impact, and that fortunately, they are more and more numerous.
Bit by bit, family and friends have been joining Drop Campers, growing as a sustainable cooperative, our way of understanding society and the economy from an integrating and innovative perspective. Since 2021, Mario and Albert Fernández have passed the baton on to the younger generation, Oriol Calders and Gerard Gomà, who largely lead the project now.
We think that our teardrop trailers are the result of a joint and highly personalized creative journey for most demanding, active, and dreaming travelers with design and environmental sensitiveness… And perhaps, you too are one of them.
