About this teardrop

Darwin is a cosy blue teardrop custom-made in England by LGM Designers. It has space inside for two.

There is a door on each side to give easy access, a sliding privacy window on each side, and the roof contains a small skylight. The skylight can be opened fully, or on rainy days it can be opened part-way to give ventilation without letting the rain in.

Inside there is an 8 cm deep mattress with an anti-condensation mat below and an elasticated mattress protector on top. The mattress can be folded up to make a bench-style seating area.

You are welcome to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags. Alternatively we are happy to hire you a duvet & pillows for a small extra charge.

The teardrop has a small leisure battery and a power hookup cable to allow you to connect to a mains outlet such as a campsite’s electric hookup. We supply a standard 3-pin hookup cable and a 3-pin to UK plug adapter.

There are door lights on each side to help you find your way back in the dark. Inside there are reading lights and ceiling lights. These can all be run off-grid from the leisure battery. There is also a socket to allow you to power mains devices whenever you have the teardrop hooked up to a mains power supply.

At the foot of the interior there are two small cupboards and a storage shelf. Each side also has a small fold-out table.

This is an instruction video for Darwin. It shows you the teardrop’s features and how you can hitch up and be off on your travels in a few minutes.

Towing & using the teardrop

Being so narrow & light, Darwin is really easy to tow. Your vehicle will just need a standard 50mm towbar and either a 7-pin or 13-pin trailer socket. Darwin only needs 7 pins; we can provide an adapter if you vehicle has a 13-pin socket.

At our barn in Hawkshead, we will connect the trailer for you at the start of your hire and we will disconnect it at the end of your hire. You can take the teardrop wherever you like within the mainland UK. Explore the campsites in the Lake District, or roam further afield – the choice is yours. 

If you don’t have a spare numberplate to put on Darwin, we can make one for you for a small fee.

Don't want to tow?

We can provide an extra service for you if you don’t want to tow the teardrop. Perhaps your vehicle does not have a towbar, or perhaps you have arrived in the Lakes by train / coach.

In any case, we can deliver the teardrop to a campsite for you. You book the campsite, tell us which one you have booked, and we will make sure the teardrop is ready & waiting for you. When your holiday is over, just leave Darwin on the campsite.
