The Jetstream Story

Jetstream Teardrop Trailers brings an iconic lifestyle concept back to South Africa

Jetstream Teardrop Trailers may not have invented the teardrop trailer, but they’re certainly responsible for reviving the concept in South Africa. Back in the ‘30’s and ‘40’s, the little egg-shaped caravans took the USA by storm, with “Tin-pot-tourists” in often-homemade teardrop trailers enjoying the benefits of owning a comfortable, easy-towing little home away from home.

The design was described in one 1937 magazine article as the “ideal outdoorsman’s trailer”, but in the March/April 1939 edition of Popular Homecraft magazine, a fellow called Hi Sibley obviously had his sights set elsewhere when he gave a detailed breakdown of how he built his own Teardrop “Honeymoon House Trailer” for just $60, using the axle and mudguards from a 1926 Chevrolet, along with lots of scrap wood. One has to wonder how his soon-to-be wife felt about him preparing for the nuptials by building what was in effect a large bed on wheels with an outside bar attached.

While caravans grew bigger and bigger, teardrops stayed popular for decades because they were light, easy to tow by the smallest of vehicles, and didn’t make too much difference to performance or fuel consumption. There was little or no setup involved when the users arrived at their destinations, and they could be easily stowed away in an ordinary garage when not in use.

All of those attributes are still relevant today, in 2011, Durban businessman Barry Olivier set about building his own teardrop trailer using a marine ply body on an old trailer chassis. When he finished his prototype, called Marilyn, it attracted so much favourable attention wherever he went that he formed Jetstream Teardrop Trailers SA to build and market them in marine fibreglass.

*Persons who passed their Code B light motor vehicle drivers tests after the implementation of the National Road Safety Act of 1996 are prohibited from towing anything weighing more than 750 kg. Drivers who already had the old Code 8 licences before that time automatically received Code EB licences that limit them only to the maximum permissible towing capacity of the tow vehicle. Code B licence holders are obliged to undergo the whole learners’ and drivers’ licence testing procedure with an appropriate trailer attached for a Code EB before being allowed to tow a full-sized caravan. Taking a chance and having an accident without the correct licence could result in all insurances refusing to honour claims.
