The Two Brothers of Gateway Teardrops
How Our Big Adventure Began
The name Gateway Teardrops comes from the tiny town of Gateway, Arkansas, where our mother grew up. We remember spending vacations there; playing in the gravel pile in front of Pawpaw’s old shop building. Pawpaw was a chair maker who had moved from Oklahoma to Arkansas sometime before 1900 in a covered wagon. We always thought that was a cool story, and now we are pretty sure their journey would have been more comfortable in one of our campers.
is a well-appointed teardrop model with lots of features included.
is a square back model that comes with a wide door in back. It's a blank slate that can have a variety of cool features added.
Taller, longer, shorter skinnier; we can start with a Galley Model or a Utility Model and totally customize it from there.
the Custom Shop
The updated Galley Model has a curvy new shape up front and has been lengthened to nine feet for the standard base model. The curvy front lets us include a headboard with storage without sacrificing any floor space. Now you’ve got a convenient place for your eyeglasses, alarm clock (nah, just kidding), or your cell phone.
Extending the Galley to nine feet means more interior space and more galley storage. Go ahead and slide that premium ice chest under the stainless steel countertop and use the new cabinets above the counter for snacks and goodies. There’s plenty of room. If you want to customize the storage, let us know. We can make it happen.
The Utility Model continues to be our most versatile camper. With the square-back shape, there’s a lot more room inside. The back door is wide enough to make this camper useful for a lot more than camping. If you want to customize the Utility, there are about a gazillion ways this camper could be made unique - bunks, a galley, removable shelves. You dream it. We can build it. And you’ll love it!
The 2020 Ozark design was a product of our
It was a taller and longer version of our current Utility Model. The side doors were eliminated in favor of a taller rear entry door. The bed was raised to create an L-shaped couch for days when sitting inside just made sense. Bigger tires, a heavier axle, and a raised frame made it off-road friendly and a pullout galley drawer on one side made it super livable.
The OZARK is just one example of what we can do.
