About seven years ago, Britton Purser, an avid motorcyclist from Grand Junction, crashed on one of his typical rides. The incident left Britton – not to mention his wife, Ami, and two young sons – longing for a hobby that would appeal to his adventurous side minus the high risk for broken bones.
A designer and builder by trade, Britton began doodling on what would become the cornerstone of Vintage Overland, a family-run business that crafts high-end, vintage-inspired teardrop trailers, light-weight enough to tow behind almost any car and into any terrain.
Today, the couple are full-time partners in the trailer-making business, and they’ve brought three employees on board, including Britton’s two brothers. They custom make the caravans in a workshop behind the Purser’s home in Grand Junction
