About Us

Vacations In A Can is a “labor of love” operation…


We love teardrop trailers, people, and the thrill of making beautiful things. This passion has evolved over time into our Vacations In A Can business, which offers custom-built teardrop trailers for purchase, and teardrop trailers for rental. We also repair and restore teardrop trailers and vintage travel trailers. Based one hour north of San Francisco in Penngrove, California, we offer three teardrop trailers for rental, and we gladly take your orders for custom trailer builds and restoration.

So if you are like us and are tired of packing all the camping gear, setting up a tent in the middle of the night (or anytime really), or if you find it hard to get up from the ground after a long and sleepless night—but aren’t ready to give up “real” camping—then you need to discover the joys of the cozy and comfortable teardrop trailer experience!

Who are the folks behind Vacations In A Can? Co-owner Joseph (Joe) Kosareff is the “in-the-shop” mastermind, a master woodworker, and the creative force behind our little teardrop gems. Joe has built custom kitchens and cabinets as well as unique fine furniture with domestic and exotic woods. He also has a detailed understanding of steel and aluminum construction and fabrication through his many years in the sign industry—making him the perfect designer and builder of teardrop trailers. And just like his custom kitchens and artistic furniture designs, Joe carefully crafts each teardrop to exacting standards that satisfy both the rigors of the road as well as the demanding attention to detail that custom orders require.

Co-owner Leslie Kosareff (Joe’s wife) is a self-employed bookkeeper and tax professional, and the organizational force behind Vacations In A Can. Leslie is an avid teardrop trailer afficionado, and the person who will greet you when you call us on the phone. Like Joe, she loves the quirky charm and camaraderie of camping in teardrop trailer style.

If you’d like to know more about us, or if you’d like to experience the joys of teardrop trailers firsthand, may we suggest that you rent one of our teardrops for a few nights? (If you order your own teardrop within 30 days of the rental, we will credit up to three rental days towards the purchase price of your own custom teardrop trailer.)

Trust us. Once you’ve cozied up inside a comfy teardrop and gone glamping (that’s Sunset Magazine’s term for “glam camping,”) you’ll never want to crash on that hard ground and squishy air mattress again. Give us a call and let us introduce you to the many joys of your own Vacation In A Can!
