nüCamp RV's innovative T@B 400 Teardrop Camper debuted in late 2016 and was an instant hit with consumers and the industry, according to a press release.
The feature-rich trailer comes standard with a wide range of top-end components, including an Alde Compact 3010 hydronic heater for gentle, ambient comfort and instant hot water.
Unlike noisy forced air that removes humidity, Alde hydronic heaters create soft currents of warm air to evenly heat the entire RV — much like a modern home. Running off of clean, green propane or 12VDC, the system provides year-round comfort in any weather. And when it's time to shower or prepare a meal, hot water is ready and waiting.
The advanced Compact 3010 doesn't take up a lot of space on board — only 13.5 inches long by 20 inches wide by 12.25 inches high - making it ideal for the T@B 400. Despite its diminutive size, it provides incredibly efficient heating using propane, 110V shore power or drawing a mere 1.9A on 12VDC.
"We are always looking to not only improve, but to innovate within the industry," nuCamp RV CEO Scott Hubble says. "We view hydronic heating as superior to the standard forced air systems that dominate the RV industry."
Every component of the T@B 400 is high-end and state-of-the-art. The thoughtful design of the 93.8 square-foot trailer boasts a queen size bed, large front and rear opening picture windows with screens and shades, and close to 7 feet of headroom, even in the standup shower. Task and accent LED lights abound, easily run off the integrated, roof-mounted solar panel. Weighing only 2,690 pounds, it can be towed by most vehicles.
"Once a user is familiar with Alde hydronic heating, they're hooked for life," Hubble says.
nüCamp RV has a long history with Alde, having installed thousands of its innovative systems in its popular T@B 320 Teardrop Camper.
Pioneering nüCamp RV manufactures T@B and T@G trailers, and Cirrus truck campers. Formerly Pleasant Valley Teardrop Trailers, its website is nucamprv.com.
Founded in Sweden in 1949, Alde introduced its first RV heater in 1966. Since then, it has become internationally known for its hydronic heating solutions for mobile living. Focusing primarily on OEM, it has more than 700 service locations worldwide.
