SunsetThe May issue of Sunset magazine arrived in my Post Office box the other day and I have been obsessed with the cover ever since.  Sunset’s cover features a campsite including an awesome teardrop camper – and now I really want one.

Teardrop campers were a big deal in the mid-last-century and have been making a bit of a comeback in recent times.  I am told that they are more and more popular as they are lighter than the campers we have been more used to seeing and are able to be pulled by smaller more gas efficient cars of the day.

I don’t care why, I just need to get my hands on one.  Thankfully there are places our there like Vacations in a Can that specialize in new, vintage, and custom teardrops.

I will be keeping my eye out for one to show up locally.  And when it does, I don’t plan on going camping with it.  I fancy just putting out in the back yard and hanging out in it all summer.
