You've got questions, we've got answers!
Here is a list of our most commonly asked questions.
If you cannot find your answer here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer your question personally!
Q1 - Do we have any new TCTeardrops in our inventory for sale right now?
A1 - Sometimes! We are custom builders and primarily only build per order. Having said that, we do try to keep the 4x9 Oasis model in stock for immediate purchase, first-come first-served. At this time we do have a short waiting list for the Oasis models so give us a call if you would like to get on the list for this summer (2021). Occasionally we take in used TCTeardrops on trade, which leads to question #2...
Q2 - Do we ever have used TCTeardrops for sale?
A2 - Sometimes! We may take one in on trade for a new TCTeardrop, or we may have a demo unit for sale. We post these on our "TCTeardrops LLC" page on Facebook; if you would like to be notified, please follow our FB page or send us an email us if you are not a FB user. There is also a Facebook Page devoted to "TCTeardrops Used Campers for Sale" that you are welcome to follow, or post a TCTeardrop for sale yourself if you currently own one that you wish to sell.
Q3 - Do we have any TCTeardrops for rent?
A3 - No, not from us, but you CAN rent a TCTeardrop trailer from our friends at Indian Trails Campground in Pardeeville, WI. Stay at their campground if you want, or take it on the road for your vacation. Please call them at 608-429-3244 for details and rates, or visit their WEBSITE. You can also rent from another customer on Outdoorsy, you can find their rental information HERE.
Q4 - How long does it take us to build your custom Teardrop from the time you place your order?
A4 - The average wait time is 10 to 12 months for your order to be completed. Current wait time as of April 23, 2021 is 18 months from the date you place your order and make your $500 deposit to reserve a build slot. It doesn't take that long to actually build a Teardrop, we build 5 to 7 custom TCTeardrops each month, it just depends upon our back-log at any given time. If you're looking for a specific date farther out into the future, feel free to contact us for more specific future booking information.
Q5 - Do we have any dealers?
A5 - No, we do not have any dealers, anywhere. We manufacture and sell directly to the consumer from our location in Wausau, WI. We travel the country and exhibit at various shows throughout the year (see our Events page) so you can see one in person at a show, or you might catch us camping someplace! If you are unable to get to a show we can try to set you up with a customer in your area so you can take a look at their TCTeardrop. Delivery is an option (see Q6) if you can't to drive to Wisconsin to pick up your Teardrop.
Q6 - Do we deliver?
A6 - We have a company that will deliver for us to the lower 48 states (for Canadian customers they will only go as far as the border), they charge approximately $1.15 USD per mile from 54403, depending upon your location. For an exact delivery quote we would need your delivery address. You can also get a delivery estimate by filling in your own quote request, just "add to cart" and select "shipping", then enter your shipping address for an estimate of your shipping cost.
Q7 - Do we have a showroom to visit?
A7 - We accept visitors by appointment. Having said that, currently we are limiting visits due to the Covid-19 numbers being very high right now. We do not have a "showroom" but you are welcome to visit our shop and see some completed Teardrops, ask questions and check out accessories. We do ask that you make an appointment so we can make sure we have plenty of time to spend with you when you get here.
Q8 - How much is the deposit to hold a build slot?
A8 - We require a $500.00 deposit to hold your build slot. The balance is not due until we complete your Teardrop, no matter what size or model that you order. If you change your mind and cancel your order at any time during the waiting period, we will refund any money that you have paid, even if your Teardrop is already under construction.
Q9 - Do we refund your deposit if you cancel your order?
A9 - Yes, we will refund your deposit within 10 business days after you notify us that you wish to cancel your order (we do ask that the request to be in writing, an email from your address is fine).
Q10 - Do we have a brochure we can mail out to you?
A10 - No, we do not have paper brochures, sorry. All of our information is available through our website and/or social media channels. We are saving the trees for shade when we go camping!
Q11 - Can the roof of a TCTeardrop handle a Roof Top Tent?
A11- Absolutely! You need to have the roof rack option first, then you can put any RTT that you want on the roof of the Teardrop. We are a dealer for Yakima products, so you can order a Yakima RTT through us, or you can purchase and mount your own RTT, as long as you chose the "roof rack" option for your Teardrop.
Q12 - Do we install roof vents, roof fans or skylights?
A12 - No, we do not install vents, fans or skylights in the roof of a TCTeardrop. We offer 2 doors (with windows) and 2 side windows as standard with the Original model, all of which open and have screens, plus we offer full Zippered-screen doors if you want more ventilation. We have passive air vents as standard, and we sell rechargeable window fans and/or Air Conditioners (when available). Putting a vent in the roof tends to let more heat in (or out) depending on the weather. The roof of a TCTeardrop is very well insulated and very durable, not to mention strong enough to handle a roof rack and gear. Plus, a hole in the roof is an invitation for water to find a way inside, and nobody likes a wet blanket!
Q13 - Do we sell Teardrop plans or kits?
A13 - No, not at this time.
Q14 - Can you tow a TCTeardrop behind a motorcycle?
A14 - No, currently there is no TCTeardrop model small enough to tow behind a motorcycle. You CAN, however, put your motorcycle on the front rack of the TCTeardrop "ISO" model (coming soon!) and take the motorcycle along with the Teardrop wherever you want to go riding!
Q15 - Do we have custom covers for our TCTeardrops?
A15 - No, we do not have custom covers anymore. We did, years ago, but they were very expensive to have them made for us. There are generic Teardrop covers that work just fine for a fraction of the custom cover price. We like THIS ONE!
