Reimagining Adventure: The Journey Behind Second Wind Teardrop Trailers

Jan 16, 2024

At American Teardrop, we count ourselves incredibly lucky to have joined forces with a team of highly skilled professionals in the industry, all dedicated to providing our clients with the finest teardrop trailers on the market. Among these exceptional partnerships, one that stands out is our collaboration with Nathan Rizzo, the brilliant mind and creator behind Second Wind Trailers.

We are thrilled to present Nathan's inspiring journey in this blog post, from the inception of Second Wind to the exciting plans he has in store for the future.

From Second Wind Owner, Nathan Pizzo

In 2014, my journey took a pivotal turn as I made the bold decision to trade in my beloved, self-restored 74 911 RS Porsche. It was a year of transformation, where I embarked on a new chapter in life with a clear vision in mind. No longer content with simply marveling at engineering wonders, I set out to create one of my own - a trailer for family adventures, a project that would be shared with my wife. Little did I know that this dream would surpass all my wildest expectations and lead me down the path of becoming a true trailblazer in the industry.

Exploring the Evolution 

The birth of Second Wind Trailers began with the creation of my very first teardrop trailer. This initial design was a nod to tradition, featuring an elegant egg-shaped structure with a gleaming mirror finish reminiscent of the iconic Airstream trailers. While visually appealing, this early endeavor served as a valuable learning experience. I soon discovered the limitations of bolt-together trailers, realizing that they fell short of the masterpiece I had envisioned. It was during a period of reflection, inspired by my family's unwavering resilience in the face of adversity following the 2008 crash, that the name 'Second Wind Trailers' came to be. This name represents not only a new beginning but also a breath of fresh air and a whisper of hope.

Driven by my extensive technological expertise, I embarked on a journey to create the Whisper II - a remarkable advancement from my initial endeavor. However, my ambitions did not cease there. In 2016, I delved into crafting a new design, the FREEDOM, which exuded a captivating blend of edginess and elegance that resonated deeply with my own spirit. This model represented a significant leap forward in terms of both efficiency and design. Although the first iteration of the FREEDOM underwent reinvention, it laid the foundation for an extraordinary project - a US COAST GUARD themed trailer commissioned by a customer in Michigan. Infused with months of unwavering dedication, this creation became a true testament to innovation and the pursuit of knowledge.
