Featured Teardrop: Silver Tears

While surfing the web, I'm sure you've run into what is being billed at the "world's most expensive teardrop trailer". The Bulleit Bourbon Tailgater was inspired by the bourbon culture of the southern United States. The wood-paneled outer shell of this hand crafted trailer is made from reclaimed oak bourbon casks and the leather seats will age over time — just like a bottle of the amber liquor.




Davis Design and his company, Silver Tears, created two of these teardrops to be sold as limited editions by Neiman Marcus for $150,000 each. Each of the trailers also include glassware, a flat-screen TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, and a state-of-the-art sound system, plus a one-year supply of Bulleit Bourbon and Bulleit Rye.




For the more down-to-earth teardrop shopper, Silver Tears designs and sells smaller teardrops without the high class pull-out bar. Their custom 6x11 foot Woody teardrop trailer is being sold by Orvis for $29,995 and is made from sapele and mahogany trimmed with ash. It has a custom three-piece foam mattress that converts to a sofa, Awning windows and a roof fan. The rear galley features a curly-maple counter top, a stainless-steel cooler and cabinets for storage. A freshwater tank and faucet with an electric pump are powered by a three-stage marine charger with a 110V plug.


For someone on a beer budget, Silver Tears is now producing a line of aluminum campers that will have a queen bed, galley and storage for between $10,500 and $12,500. The SilverTear will be available as a 4x8 or a 5x10 foot platform and will weigh between 700 to 1,500 lbs. It will include LED lighting, a hidden hatch under the bed for storage, to secure a port-a-potty and to contain upright seating. It will also have a Fantastic Fan, a stainless steel countertop in the galley, aluminum wing tables with supports, a stainless propane stove and a privy tent. Each SilverTear can be customized to the owner's specifications.
