Switchables hit the road with the Camper night light cover.
The fused-glass process enables Switchables to create a new generation of nightlight covers like none you've ever seen before. Instead of being folded and soldered like traditional Switchables covers, these pieces of glass are fused together with flash heat for more brilliant colors and intricate designs with no metal borders. Bits and strips of glass are bonded to a slightly curved, clear or colored background panel.
You can identify a fused-glass Switchables cover by its "SF" item number. Traditional Switchables start with "SW".
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.

"Camper" means different things to different people, ranging from recreational vehicles with all the comforts of home on wheels to camper shells -- simple caps for a pickup truck bed. Travel trailers (or caravans) like the one depicted on our night light cover fall in the middle of the spectrum.
Caravans got their start with Europe's nomadic Gypsies, who are more politely called the Romani people. Over time the Gypsies transformed their basic wagons into portable homes that were more comfortable and secure than their traditional tents. In 1879 Samuel White Baker bought an actual Gypsy caravan and shipped it back to Cyprus, where he took it on tour. In 1880 the Bristol Carriage Company built the first recreational trailer. By 1901 "caravanning" was a mainstream craze. Travel trailers didn't catch on in the US until "tin can tourists" popularized them in the 1920s. Throughout the '30s and '40s campers became larger and more liveable and came to be called "house trailers." By the 1950s they reached their extreme form as the "mobile homes" that we're still familiar with today.
