Colorado Teardrops has been in the league of builders’ head bent on providing mini camping solutions with electric power in-charge. After the family-oriented Boulder, the Colorado company has outed a pair of patent-pending teardrop camping trailers called Electric Classic that call out to both EV and non-EV owners.
Designed in two variants, essential for those looking to extend camping trips in the outdoors, the teardrop trailers provide additional off-grid energy to power equipment and devices on board, or juice up your electric vehicle on the journey back home.

The chief advantage of the Electric Classics models is the amount of power available. The EC models – EC-2 and EC-4 – come integrated with battery systems, providing 19 kWh to 38 kWh of battery power, to use while camping or as whole-home battery when not camping. Putting that to prospective, the company notes – with up to 38 kWh of battery power – the trailer can power an average US home for over a day.
Coming to the two different models, the EC-2 is a two-person teardrop trailer while EC-4, on that notion, is a larger 4-person model. Both are inspired by the previous bestsellers from the brand and are constructed using welded structural aircraft aluminum. The triple-insulated construction renders the trailers durable and lightweight, while the protection on the bottom of the cabin protects and seals them against the elements.
The interior of the Colorado Teardrop’s EC-2 and EC-4 are free from plastic in the walls, cabinetry, and shelving, however, have been made warm and comfortable for the inhabitants. For this, the teardrops feature maple or hardwood laminates and have insulated doors with sliding windows that open up the interiors to the great outdoors, while keeping the camping trailer tightly sealed otherwise.
On the outside, the trailer tongue box offers additional storage and accommodates the electrical components. Interestingly, the Colorado Teardrops’ EC models are not for everyone: The two-person EC-2 starts at $44,000 and the four-person EC-4 base model is priced at $50,400. An upgrade to a 38 kWh battery pack will set up back an additional $11,000.
