Imagine cruising down the interstate in your big rig, fifth wheel and toy-hauler in tow, headed towards your favorite campground. In the your side mirror, you see the glimmer of a car in the distance. It gains on you, bit by bit, and soon you can make out the form of a compact car, the sort that most folks use for commuting—not camping. It comes closer and closer, signals and finally swings out to pass you. And it’s then that you notice that it’s not flying solo. In fact, it’s towing one of the smallest campers you’ve ever seen on the road. And it keeps heading right on past you at 70 miles an hour and 35 miles a gallon.
You, my friend, have been tear-dropped.
Sterling and Jeannie Bradley of Sheffield Village, Ohio, could have booked an ocean cruise or bought a large RV to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Instead, they decided to purchase a classic Silver Shadow Teardrop Camper and hit the road.
This summer the Bradleys will launch their golden anniversary travels with a trip to a family reunion in Colorado. As new KOA Value Kard Rewards members, they are eager to begin adding points and reaping rewards. In fact, Sterling figures they will take several trips that last 2-3 weeks each to various destinations but their plans are not concrete.
So we guess that you’ll just need to look for them at a KOA—or in a rear-view mirror—near you.
Think the Bradley’s have the right idea? Then you’re definitely going to want to read the June Kompass next month, ’cause we’ve got a camper giveaway courtesy of our friends at Little Guy Teardrop Trailers that you’re gonna love!
