Before we explore what this teardrop camper can offer your lifestyle, let's see what Car-Go is all about. In 2015, Patrick St-Pierre decided he wanted to build his very own teardrop after encountering one in the wild one faithful day. Since his background in building high-end kitchen cabinets isn't very far from the knowledge needed to build such campers, he also decided to make a business out of it.
Just to start things off, the Liberty is currently being advertised as selling for $15,785. Whether that's Canadian Dollars or American isn't very clear. However, if the rate is in Canadian Dollars, it comes across as costing no more than $12,250 American (at current exchange rates). Nonetheless, some teardrops sell for more than $16K American, so it doesn't matter how you look it at; it's still a relatively affordable rate.
dang solid teardrop. For example, the habitat is set up on an aluminum chassis, ensuring it's resistant to the elements and light. Heck, with the living space on top, all you'll be towing is a mobile habitat that weighs 1,025 pounds (465 kilograms), dry. The axle is also rated up to 2,000 pounds (907 kilograms), so you should have more than enough room for you, your significant other, and any gear you may need for your adventures. Best of all, a roof rack can be used, but it's unclear if the structure supports a tent.
If God forbid you're caught in some storm, or the shell starts to take a battering, aluminum exterior side panels help take the hits that life throws at you but are also water-resistant. However, it's the interior that you'll be using the most, so let's wander on inside.
In true teardrop fashion, the interior of this camper boasts a heavy use of wood. Whether it be the flooring, walls, or cabinets, eco-friendly and renewable wood is king. After all, Patrick's background is in building such cabinetry, and I don't know about you, but the cabinets I have at home are completed from this raw material. A modular mattress and countless storage spaces are also inside. LED lighting and a fan integrated into the roof are also part of the utilities found inside, not to mention control panels for systems like radio or batteries and pumps if you have any installed.
not to be underestimated. If you want to add solar power, you'll need to think things through a bit or just go for a mobile setup.
Sure, Canada may not be the grandfather of the teardrop, or most campers, for that matter, but with machines like the Liberty, this nation is sure to start popping up at RV shows all over the world. Heck, this teardrop is indistinguishable from any other I've covered, whether it be American, European, or even South African, and that says something.
