The Problem


Most campers are not designed with the customer in mind

The market for towable campers is filled with bulky, heavy cabins that require large, gas-guzzling vehicles to lug them around while traditional “boxy” designs and heavy drag further reduce fuel efficiency and vehicle range. Wide profiles and wheelbases restrict many campers to highway-only access and limited storage options.  And outdated designs and materials limit product seasonality and lifespan.

Many traditional towable campers are hard to set up, level, and takedown, or only offer small, uncomfortable sleeping quarters and limited headroom.


While tents provide easy transport and storage, they lack stability and security, and limited material technology restricts their use to flat, open terrain and warm weather-only camping. 

The Solution


Camp365 was designed with the needs of the modern camper at its core

We’re disrupting the RV market with an ultra-lightweight camper that expands from a 4’ wide by 6’ 8” high box into a 96-foot square living space large enough for a family of 6. While most campers require large, gas-guzzling vehicles to tow them around, Camp365 was designed with accessibility in mind. With a base dry weight less than 1,500 pounds (676 kg), all of our campers can be pulled by a vehicle with a standard trailer hitch, including everything from family sedans to electric cars or UTVs. Our patented, aerodynamic, ultra-lightweight design provides industry-leading fuel and battery efficiency for whatever vehicle the owner chooses.

*The above information is based on internal research and management's experience.

Why Camp365?: 


  • Store in Your Garage - Save $1,000s per year

  • Easy Towing - safely tow with your current vehicle...car, truck, or electric! No need to buy a new tow vehicle

  • Easy Leveling - No campground? No problem! Set up almost anywhere in just minutes!

  • Built to Last - Camp365 is built in the USA with eco-friendly materials designed to not rot or mildew.

  • Lots of Room - Camp365 can sleep up to 6 adults

  • Patented dual-layer air insulation - allows owners to camp anywhere in comfort 365 days a year

  • Range of Equipment Options - integrations from portable stoves, stainless steel sinks, hot showers, refrigerators, and even toilets.

  • Proprietary lift-assist - Sets up in minutes, anywhere by anyone 

  • Solar Ready - Take your adventure “off the grid”
  • Sprawling Interior - When opened,  12' by 8' base (3.65m by 2.43m) and a soaring 7' 6" tall (2.28 meters) provides an open, uncramped living space large enough for 6 adults.

The Patented adjustable wheelbase can be adjusted between 72 and 48-inch spans (183 cm to 122 cm), making it perfect for accessing off-road trails while still safe at highway speeds. Our easy-to-load Toy Rack attachment allows owners to tote bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, and other outdoor equipment alongside their Camp365. Optional ski attachments mean even snow and ice can be easily traversed. Lightweight materials and patented lift-assist allow Camp365 to be set up and taken down in just minutes, and a compact closed profile makes it simple to store in one-third of a standard garage stall. 

We believe Camp365 will truly set a new standard for campers of the future.

The Market


More Than $114B in Annual Camper/RV sales in the United States and Canada

Last year, the US RV market generated more than $114B in total revenue, with more than 78 million American households and 9.1 million Canadian households participating in some version of camping/RVing each year. As recreational vehicles and campers provide a reliable and private way to travel, it is considered one of the safest recreational activities during the coronavirus pandemic. As more people explore camping and outdoor recreation, we believe the post-lockdown period is likely to witness a continued rise in the number of first-time buyers.

Locally, 88% of RVs sold annually in the US are in the towable segment. 2019 marked the fourth-highest yearly unit sales on record, with RV and camper shipments totaling 410,283 units in the US alone. Of these, approximately 361,000 towable campers were sold, including 275,000 travel trailers.


In spite of two months of shut-down, 2020 saw 384,600 towable camper units sold with that number expected to rise 17.8% to 453,200 in 2021.1

Data from RVIA , KOA 2019 Camping Report, and Baird Equity Research, Consumer/Retail published January 25, 2019, November 30, 2020, and Statistica.com 2019

Camp365 is carving out new markets in the camper industry. We provide a unique, eco-friendly option that meets the needs of customers who want all-season access to the outdoors, but don’t want to have to purchase a dedicated towing vehicle, rent or build storage space, or sacrifice fuel efficiency. With the rapid rise of electric and gas/electric hybrid vehicles, we believe Camp365 is uniquely positioned as one of few options that can be easily towed by EVs, PHEVs, and HEVs without significant loss of vehicle range.


Additional addressable markets include Emergency Preparedness & Response, Government and State Agencies, and Military.

*The above is a rendering of future products. The products are still currently under development.

Our Traction


ALREADY ACTIVE IN MARKET. Over 9X revenue growth in the last 2  years!

We sold our first hand-built campers in 2018, seeing ~$90,000 in revenue. Just a year later, we had built a manufacturing plant in Iowa and saw our revenue grow to ~$503,000. Even with a rocky start to 2020, losing 12 weeks of manufacturing time due to the pandemic, we grew to over $850,000 in 2020.


With this recent traction, we’ve received a structured order from the largest RV dealer in California to deliver ~300 units over the next year - a deal worth approximately $6,000,000 - $7,000,000. We’ve received 1,440 sales inquiries from around the world via our website and social channels, and see this number grow every day. Due to our continued growth, we have just broken ground on our third location, a 20,000 square foot production facility in Albia, Iowa, USA. 


Thanks to our top-tier innovation, we were recognized as a Top RV Debut 2020 by RV Business Magazine award for Top RV Debut 2020 by RV Business and awarded 10 separate US and Canadian patents.

What We Do


Camp365 —Made in the USA; Engineered for the World

We believe more and more people are looking for safe inexpensive outdoor activities that allow social distancing and time away from the crowds. 


Our focus on design and our features that make the camper feel like home has created a camper experience like none other. Our modular approach and range of interchangeable equipment options make our camper ready for all seasons and camping styles. 


In addition to our state-of-the-art specs, we’ve worked hard to make it one of the most affordable options on the market., With retail price points between $17,995 and $24,995, financing options put ownership payments ranging from $175-$250 a month. Additionally, tow ability, easy storage, and improved fuel economy mean a lower cost of ownership for the average customer. The range and accessibility of Camp365 means customers are not tethered to the requirements and costs of traditional campgrounds.

gif

The Business Model


We already sell to independent RV Dealers in the US and Canada

We sell the revolutionary Camp365 cabin through a growing network of independent RV dealers across the United States and Canada. 


We signed our first dealer in March of 2019  and additional dealers added in California and Colorado in 2020. We exported into Canada in December 2019, signing a dealer with 13 locations across the country. 


In 2021, we plan to aggressively grow our dealer base, as well as pursue planned expansions into mobile emergency response and preparedness for government agencies,  and other Strategic Partners. Camp365 also plans to expand its direct-to-consumer purchase and digital marketplace options for markets not served by dealers.  

How We Are Different


An RV that goes wherever you do

Many traditional RVs are limited to where they can go, how they can be towed, where they can be stored when not in use, and what they can do.  


Not Camp365.


Our camper was designed to remove the barriers that limit more families from enjoying quality time in the great outdoors. Camp365's engineers worked to create the perfect indoors for the outdoors. 


After years of testing, we believe we have developed a product that can change the RV market as we know it.


The Vision


The RV industry will be forever changed

Once consumers get a taste of the adaptability and ease of our RVs, experienced RV’ers and newcomers alike will be hard-pressed to return to the days of bulky, expensive, gas-guzzling tow vehicles and uncomfortable campers.

Camp365 Secures Investment from 321 Ridgeland Ventures

12 days ago

Camp365 has secured additional investments from Chicago-based 321 Ridgeland Ventures via its Crowdfunding Capital campaign on StartEngine.

 321 Ridgeland Ventures is a specialized investment group focused on identifying investment opportunities in consumer products and services primarily in the household, outdoor, pet and personal care segments. Because these segments have been largely ignored by most capital providing sources, 321 Ridgeland Ventures specifically seeks qualified company founders who can greatly benefit from financial and managerial support and thus presenting attractive investment opportunities. 321 Ridgeland Ventures founder and principal Jonathan Berman believes Camp365 fits that bill.

 “I recently made a significant investment in Camp365,” states Berman. “I was introduced to Camp365 through StartEngine just like many new investors. After completing in-depth due diligence including research in products and markets, extensive meetings and conversations with Kevin and his team, and recently visiting their factories in Albia, I concluded that Camp365 is the real deal.”

 Mr. Berman and 321 Ridgeland Ventures were attracted to Camp365’s innovative, disruptive product and their position in a growing yet fragmented market dominated by staid competition. “Camp365’s leadership is making the right moves to lean manufacturing in the new facilities, rationalizing design and cutting costs while maintaining world class quality,” continued Berman. “Production will scale to meet explosive demand. This is an investment opportunity I couldn’t pass on. I am happy to be a “lead” investor in this financing round.”

 Camp365 plans to use 321 Ridgeland ventures and other funds raised in its Commons Shares offering to obtain more materials and labor to scale production and sales of Camp365 units.

More Camp365 Innovation: Side Racks

27 days ago

Always innovating.

We are proud of the modular nature of our Camp365. It has allowed us to continue to innovate and add features & equipment to our offering. One of the best is our side racks for carrying outdoor gear and toys such as bikes, kayaks, and canoes along with the Camp365 unit. Our lightweight frame mounts easily on the unit's existing leveling system. It accepts most commercially available roof racks such as Thule, Yakima, and Kuat. The side mount means you get all of the extra cargo space without the added effort of having to get gear overhead and onto a roof.

It's one more way we are disrupting the Camper and RV market.

3X Income Growth YoY!

about 1 month ago

Anyone who has ever run a small business knows the path to profitability can be a dark and arduous journey. That is why it feels so great to look at our Profit & Loss statement in recent months. 

Through May of 2021, we have increased our total income by 302% vs. May of 2020! Granted, few businesses were having fun on spring of last year (pardon me, Mr. Bezos), but the solid gains are great to see and share. 

The other amazing line is our 24% YoY reduction in our labor costs and continued reduction in cost per unit. We continue to focus on increasing demand & sales conversion rates, while reducing the time and cost for production. All credit and thanks to our entire team of staff, employees and customers

Camp365 demonstrates great Battery Range for Tesla Model Y, Electric Vehicle owners

2 months ago

Camp365's lightweight, aerodynamic design and easy towing capabilities make it a great option for Tesla owners and other outdoor enthusiasts who own electric vehicles . We let two electrical engineers take out a Camp365 with a Tesla Model Y to test the handling & battery range of a typical camping excursion. Even in less-than-ideal conditions, the Tesla Model Y tested out at a fantastic 218 mile range on a single charge while towing the Camp365. Watch the video for more details on the test and results.

We believe Camp365 provides a great fit for a growing market of electric and hybrid vehicles owners who want space and comfort in a camper without having to significantly reduce their fuel range and destination options, or be forced to purchase a second vehicle just to tow their camper.
