The Hütte Hut is a tiny teardrop trailer that could be a good fit for somebody looking for a caravan with very small physical footprint. It measures a total of just 4 sq m (44 sq ft), and has enough room to sleep two adults.

The Hütte Hut is the work of husband and wife team Brian and Katrina Manzo, of Sprouting Sprocket Studio. It's designed to be towable by most light vehicles and is constructed from wood with a canvas roof. Access is via one set of double doors which take up an entire side of the trailer. Brian Manzo has a background in car design and the couple state that their creation boasts a good blend of maneuverability and stable towing dynamics.

Like most – though not quite all – teardrop trailers, the Hütte Hut contains little space or amenities inside. That said, it's got a bed that sleeps two adults, a good number of windows, a ceiling light, and a little storage space.

Katrina Manzo told Gizmag that they're still working out some of the details concerning the Hütte Hut (including price and availability). At present, the first three caravans are being constructed as special limited editions at Hütte Hut's headquarters in Santa Barbara, California. Those will be completed by mid-2015 and followed by an initial run of 30 production Hütte Huts sometime afterwards.

Nice but surely the cramping size would get old very fast. And without a toilet it is a bust.

With the possible exception of the rear window, this is no different and less 'cool' than the traditional teardrop camper that has been around for decades. You can even buy them in kit form or build from plans. Where is the innovation or applied technology with the 'Hut' ?

This is cool looking, but is gonna be a comercial bust. It is a wood sided, canvas topped tent on wheels, catering to the " I wanna live in a yurt" crowd that realizes that they CANT live in a yurt and still keep their day job. A teardrop designed in the 40's at least has a kitchen at the back--this just has a couple of windows there. And it has to be stored inside. Sun and rain will be okay for short trips, but this thing will be living in someone's garage or more likely left to rot outside. Canvas life will be shorter than aluminium, and........yeah. I see problems. But. But. But it DOES look cool and is probably as light as anything out there.

When I first saw this I was reminded of a velomobile of just about the same size/shape & color.......they would look good together.......Too small and like one person already said ....no toilet,one of the main reasons for towing more space.......LOL

Where is the insulation? It's a tent on wheels. It's a bust for the price.
