The Christianson brothers spent their childhood camping in teardrop trailers. After growing up, they decided to follow their childhood passion and construct a couple of teardrop trailers to take on camping excursions in the great Northwest.
Jon worked in metal; Sawyer worked in wood.
Jon forged his teardrop out of steel. It was more like a roll cage, made for the heavy duty rigors of off-road over-landing, as he recently described it. That was about a decade ago, and the brothers each had constructed a suitable camper, but in some ways, each was lacking what the other teardrop had.
