Our Team

We’re proud of the craftsmanship and care we put into our teardrop trailers. It takes a fantastic team to bring you this level of quality, customization, and precision.


Kevin Purdy, President

Before starting at TeardropsNW: I was looking for something I could be passionate about. I found my passion at TeardropsNW.

What’s your favorite piece of camping gear? The Ranger II stove, because it’s so well constructed with cast iron. Also, it has a great flame that allows you to boil water in five minutes!

What’s your favorite model and why? My favorite model is the Sojourn with the retro fenders. The Sojourn’s curves give it a style like no other teardrop trailer.

Tim Purdy, boise, ID, sales

Tim is our sales representative for the Boise, Idaho, area. He can be reached directly at (541) 602-1517 or via email.


Billy is our sales representative for Tennessee. He is part of BOLD Overland and is a proud owner of a TeardropsNW Commander. He can be reached directly at (757) 218-2918.

LINDA Coberly, Shop Mom

What would you be doing if you weren’t the owner of TeardropsNW? I’d be out camping and visiting family and friends throughout the country.

What’s your favorite piece of camp gear and why? Other than a teardrop? I’d have to say my coffee maker. It’s a manual drip, and you can make coffee as strong as you want — and you don’t need any power.

Bobby Calizon, off-road specialist

Bobby was the original purchaser of the first Recon teardrop. He helped design many of the Recon’s features. He brings a wealth of knowledge from the off-road industry. He ran an off-road specialty shop modifying 4x4 vehicles for over 20 years.

Bobby has spent over 100 nights and covered 15,000 miles with his Recon throughout the country since 2015. His personal Recon is the most traveled teardrop trailer we’ve ever built, so he has extensive trailer towing knowledge and camp experience.

If you’re looking for an expert in the teardrop trailer field, send Bobby an email, and he would be happy to answer any of your questions.
