This is not just a camping trailer
After ten years of studying Architectural design, the Founders of Polydrops, Kyung-Hyun and Jieun realized that they have been designing spaces only for other people, which they have never been able to use themselves. One day, the decision to sell Kyung-Hyun's car to build their own, portable space led to Polydrops' birth.
They tried a few camping trailers before they actually build one for them. The overall quality of camping trailers in the market was quite disappointing, especially the noise and vibration when it is being towed, and lack of insulation was a huge issue.
The first prototype of the Polydrops Trailer came out in 2017, weighing in at only 680 lbs. Being 100% handmade, the lightweight trailer made it possible for them to be able to travel with Jieun's small 4 cylinder car while towing the first Polydrops prototype trailer for a year. The immense feedback and interest from random people during the trip finally led them to jump into business following his graduation from SCI-Arc.
“What we’ve designed is not just a camping trailer, but more of a portable private space of your own that one or two can travel with. Fun fact is, Jieun and I not only used to use this trailer for traveling, but we also used it as a personal studying space while earning our graduate degree at the SCI-Arc parking lot and also as a micro office while we were developing our business at the start-up incubator.”
