TN: Vintage camper business takes off

(April 17, 2017) -- “I quit my job three years ago. I missed my first son growing up, I was working 70 hours a week and decided I wasn’t going to do it anymore. This never really started out to be a business or anything to make money, but we got a huge response from it,” Morgan Gliko said.

“It’s just like a classic car; people driving down the road would stop at gas stations, people would honk and wave. You can’t stop anywhere without somebody coming up and talking to you, reminiscing about when they were children,” Morgan Gliko said.
