New Guy from Iowa

Postby dringge » Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:10 pm

Hi. My name is Dennis. Just the new kid on the block. Not really a kid though. Im retired and wanting a teardrop to pull behind my 48 Ford sedan. Ive really been looking to buy a 40's vintage teardrop. Mostly what I find is too far away or to far away financially. I have seen some beautiful old teardrops. So the plan now is to try and build or renovate a nice little td. Im not overly skilled but Im willing to try and Ive got plenty of time. Whatever I build Id like it to look like it belongs behind a 48 Ford. I am certain Ill have lots of questions. Thanks for letting me in.

Hello!

Here's one source for the classic stuff: http://teardropparts.com/index.html The owner, George, is a great guy.

I just found this one on Craigslist.

https://columbus.craigslist.org/tro/d/2018-aerolux-teardrop-camper/6689700414.html

While it's not vintage, they build some pretty cool looking vintage style campers.

They are pretty spendy though, but it looks like you could buy this, their show model for a decent discount. They also say on their website that they offer shipping.
