The Hütte Hut Camper Deserves a Look
When you see this teardrop you want to take a closer look. And that’s what we’ll do today… just for fun.
Spoiler: There is limited information about the Hütte Hut which only adds to the mystic and leaves us wanting more. You’ll see why.
In 2011, Katrina and Brian Manzo founded Sprouting Sprocket, llc.
Hütte Hut is the creative offspring of the design pair. They approached this teardrop design from a holistic, integrated point of view. The goal was to make a mobile space that was clutter-free and would foster a womblike sanctuary to help declutter the mind.
Let’s check out the results…the most expensive teardrop trailer on the planet.
Classic Teardrop Shape – Modern Design Values
What really caught our attention were the double doors.
We always like a teardrop with doors on both sides for easy access.
But here is something new. The barn doors open as French doors do, revealing a wide open, bright, airy, relaxed space to hang out.
Retractable Roof System
The next bit of design accomplishment is the roof. Made of water-repelling canvas, it showers the space with diffused sunlight even when fully closed.
But if the weather permits you can shed the skin completely. What remains are just the trusses, letting you truly experience the outdoors. The roof line gently slopes over in front and back, leaving room for windows in the shape of trapezoids, bringing in even more light.
On each side are long horizontal peak out windows, optimally placed to enjoy the views.
Materials and Craftsmanship
To pull off the stunning design, which shows very little hardware (screwless in fact), Hütte Hut is made with premium materials and proprietary techniques.
To start, the the chassis is an aircraft-grade aluminum frame designed with a trailing-arm independent suspension. This allows for more predictable towing. At only 900 lb., the Hütte is towable by almost every vehicle.
The main cabin structure is made out of marine-grade plywood sourced from Joubert Okoume. Grown on the west coast of Africa, the wood boasts a high strength and durability-to-weight ratio. Commonly used to build boats, and perfect in this application.
Inside is more of the same. Clean, simple, modern, bright finishes including baltic birch and western cedar.
