A Family Business and More

We are a family business at the foot of the Rocky Mountains that employs local, skilled craftsmen and craftswomen.

Motivated by the natural beauty of Colorado, yet wanting to protect ourselves from the weather in a minimalist manor, we founded Colorado Teardrop Trailers in 2014.

This is after discovering we couldn’t rent a Teardrop Trailer in Colorado to try before we purchased one!

To purchase one, we were told it would be a 6 month wait!  So we built one for ourselves.  Based on the interest and appreciation for our personal Teardrop, we launched Colorado Teardrop Trailers.

Founded by the son of a British carpenter, Dean Wiltshire started building boats at a young age. With experience in designing and building furniture, cabinetry, and custom homes; the business focuses on building quality teardrop trailers.

With all his woodwork and building skills, Dean also has Computer Aided Design (CAD) and CNC Routing experience to provide quality at  the most cost affordable approach.

Dean is Father to David and Sarah.
David is our Production Manager and Sarah is our Office Manager.
