#10: Trailer Tales from California’s Desert Parks

72 minutes

Teardrop trailers sure look cute and romantic, but what’s it like actually sleeping in one? Today we’re sharing what we learned as we camped in a teardrop trailer in three parks in southern California. Find out what additional equipment you may need to bring with you, the best situations to use a teardrop, and whether we liked it in the end. We also talk about the best seasons for visiting different parks in our mail bag section. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Picking up the trailer
  • Why winter may not be the best season for teardrop camping
  • The camping sites and hikes we enjoyed in the Mojave Preserve, Joshua Tree, and Death Valley NPs
  • Finding romance on Valentine’s Day in the national parks
  • The importance of researching what season is best in what park
