TAB teardrop trailer exterior

The manufacturer says "It is so light and maneuverable that you can usually move it around by hand.  Most light trucks and SUV's can easily handle the T@B. In addition, many mini vans and passenger cars can also pull them."   (Check your car owner's manual: if you have a tow rating of 2000 lbs or more, you can tow a T@B )

The U-shaped floorplan is shown below. It has a U-shaped dinette and sofa bed that convert to a 70"x80" bed.  This was the original T@B arrangement.  The Cool Cat air conditioner with heat pump is an option

The 2 floorplans above can be combined into the "Queen Bed with L-Shaped Galley" floorplan (see the queen bed model floorplan and pictures here).  This has the "L" shaped galley on the front wall of the trailer and the U-Shaped sofa bed that converts to a large 70" x 80" bed.

"Clam Shell" arrangement:

This arrangement has an outside galley.  The two sofas convert to a 70" x 58" bed.  The front wall storage and a bench seat.
