Southern Appalachian Tearjerkers Rally at Devil's Fork State Park in Salem, SC

We attended out first Tearjerkers Rally this past weekend at Devil's Fork Campground in SC. We met attendees from the Georgia and Southern Appalachian Chapters of Tearjerkers. I attempted to take pictures of everyone's trailers, but my camera batteries died! If I missed a few, I apologize. The Pot-Luck social on Saturday night had plenty of great food and fellowship. We unfortunately arrived late on Friday night and missed some of the other planned activities. As usual, we were in our vintage 1968 Avion, but there were Shastas, a Scotty, a tiny pop-up tent trailer, an Itsy bitsy trailer pulled behind a motorcycle and a wide assortment of amazing teardrop type trailers. We felt welcomed and had a wonderful time.

American Made Vintage Trailer Awning Displayed on a Shasta

Over this Labor Day weekend, another American made vintage trailer awning was proudly displayed on a Shasta. The products used in the constuction of my rope and pole awnings are made in America; marine grade Sunbrella fabric is made in the USA, along with the #69 nylon weatherproof thread, and the 1/2" solid brass General grommets. The awning is even sewn together using a vintage Singer Rocketeer, also known as Slant-o-matic sewing machine, which was once proudly made in the USA. I strive to support my country by using American made goods. Vintage Look Awnings are made in America by a patriotic American. God Bless America!
