The new Silver Cub

Here's a look at the new Silver Cub in development.
Design parameters are;
- Queen bed or as close as we can come
- Ultra lightweight under 1000lb for a 5 x 10 ft camper (we should come in at 750lb)
- all LED lighting for low draw on battery and environment
- 110v hook-up
- Large feeling cabin in light colors
- Maximum storage
- place for cooler inside
- Battery on tongue
- low cost to build and sell

So far the camper has a steel C channel frame that has proven very stiff and reliable. Cabin is welded aluminum 1" tube for lightness and rigidity, and interior walls are pvc which are light, durable, and reflective.
We have added aluminum to the interior storage area for durability as this is where a cooler and other heavy items would be stowed.
Its taking shape and looking good!

Wild Animal

Stalking wild animal watch out! Anyone who has stopped by the shop has been properly barked at and intimidated by Sabacha (russian for dog). She's completely harmless but is very near sighted so even I get it occasionally.

She does her job everyday by being the stress reliever for everyone that can kick a squeaky toy and she's been at it for 9 years now.

Warby-Parker Eyewear

                      Warby-Parker Eyewear Class Trip Bus

                      The Bus

The bus is on tour through the states and you can follow them on the link below. Great pictures and features on the bus and wonderful people to work with. Great glasses too!

We worked with a great creative group in New York called Partners & Spade on this project. You can check them at

This is how it went:

                                             Start with an ugly school bus

                                                           and put this in it?


                                                            We can do that

                                                  This is the support vehicle....very subtle

Here's a link to more great pictures on tour and "Phineas the famous" bus driver. You have to check this out!

Neiman-Marcus Bulleitt Bourbon Tailgater

 Bulleitt Bourbon Ultimate Tailgater for Neiman-Marcus
Well its already cold and it feels like winter already and I haven't even shared the projects we did this summer.  So pour a shot of Bulleitt Bourbon and take a look.

                                               These were taken in Texas by Neiman-Marcus

This picture makes me want to drink Bulleit Bourbon.

To start off we built an "over the top" tailgater for Bulleit Bourbon and its being marketed in the "Fantasy Gift" section at Nieman -Marcus. It feels like we did something right having all this attention. Here's the video the folks from New York produced on us and Brad Ford who helped with the colors, leather and had the great idea of putting the bourbon barrel material in the ceiling as a feature.

Here's the listing online and some great photos Neiman's took

Here's a plug on CNN

Does this mean we are hip or trendy?? That would be first for me that's for sure.

And here the Woodie is on the Today Show for the second time. Is he sitting on my fender!?

Here's some behind the scenes and set up in New York
