Call it homage to greatness.
Handcrafted American teardrop campers were all the rage in the burgeoning days of the automobile’s transition as a mainstay and necessity to life. A hitch, a buck or two in gas and a fishing rod were the basic requirements to an outdoors excursion. Silver Tears Campers, based in Roanoke, Virginia, has resurrected the classic road-to-nature accessory. A Silver Tears camper is a throwback (’32 Ford fender, ’39 Ford teardrop LED tail lights) with modern world amenities (stainless steel ice box, hot water shower system, propane stovetops). The interior of the campers are a lesson in mahogany styled refinement; the exterior an eternal teardrop outline, a myriad of customized choices, from the sleek Black Dog to the iconic Woodie. Essentially, a Silver Tears camper is a tagalong to a man’s oneness with nature-with all of the refined accoutrements of future world refuge, should it be required.
As the folks at Silver Tears Campers say best; you'll travel light, but smart, with everything you need and nothing you don't.
