Unique 1940s Style Teardrop Camper With Modern Amenities.

The auction for this vintage-style teardrop camper ended unsold recently. Maybe it was the $9,999 starting bid?

Although the camper looks vintage, it was completed in 2013 and took the builder over six years to finish.

The body is made of one inch birch wood on a totally custom frame. Wait until you see what the undercarriage looks like – this camper is probably better suited for the museum rather than the road!

The original auction ended unsold, with no bids at the starting price of $9,999. Maybe the seller would reconsider and start the auction a little bit lower.
