You’ve been dreaming of taking a vacation to see everything our country has to offer but aren’t sure of the best and most economical way to do it. Try teardrop camping! Towable teardrop campers have everything you need, and better yet, can help keep your vacation budget under control.

Here are three areas where traveling with a teardrop camper can save you money.

Save on Transportation Expenses

Sure, planes can get you from Point A to Point B faster than a car. But you also have to calculate drive time to the airport, terminal time waiting for your flight, the potential for delays or cancellations and finally, the time spent waiting for your luggage to (hopefully) make it to baggage area.

And speaking of luggage, that’s an add-on cost to your ticket, with some airlines even charging for carry-on pieces. Before you know it, airfare costs have chewed a big hole in your vacation budget.

Travel with a teardrop and there’s no wasted time for your vacation to begin—and no extra dollars spent to accommodate your possessions. Pack up the camper and the car and you’re ready to roll!

Save on Dining Costs

Breakfast, lunch, dinner — at about $33 a day, according to ValuePenguin, eating out three times a day can really eat into your vacation cash. But with a teardrop camper, you can enjoy home-cooked meals for a fraction of the cost of restaurant dining.

Bring along your favorite foods, beverages and snacks, and then buy some regional delicacies along the way to expand your cuisine!

Save on Accommodations

Hotel accommodations are another budget-buster, especially if you’re traveling with kids. Room fees, taxes and surcharges (who got into the mini-bar?) can add up significantly. And if you are one of those people who worry about bedbugs, shudder at the thought of sleeping on a pillow used by strangers, or always end up next to guests who party all night, somehow a hotel stay just doesn’t seem like all it’s cracked up to be.

But sleeping in a teardrop is just like sleeping at home—because the towels, linens and pillows are right from your room! And instead of noisy neighbors, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature just outside your camper. With the thousands of low- or no-cost campgrounds nationwide, you’re bound to find the perfect place to stop for the night. What more could you ask for?

Isn’t it time you made your next vacation a “teardrop” trip?
