“The Hitch Hotel is a lightweight expandable traveling trailer”

Most traveling units are bulky and costly

Traditional traveling units are a hassle. Not only do they require a large storage space but they are just a little bit harder to turn, park with & upkeep. At a high price point, buying a traditional RV  becomes a big investment in time and money.

Hitch Hotel is releasing you from the burden of a traditional RV

Built from durable and light-weight material, Hitch Hotel Classic is every traveler’s solution to getting on the road. It easily attaches to the back of a vehicle and expands out when parked, allowing ample room for two adults, or three bikes, or any other kind of luggage and equipment. Hitch Hotel is safe and comfortable -- it is raised from the ground and easily secured, allowing every adventurer a good night sleep and peace of mind.


Introducing: The Hitch Hotel Traveler

The Hitch Hotel Traveler is the next product to be developed (currently in its final prototype stages), while The Hitch Hotel Classic is ready to be produced as all prototyping has been completed. We've traveled the world and realized that most countries have smaller cars with length and weight restrictions on trailer hitches. The HH Classic solves a lot of problems. It's inexpensive, it's light, it sleeps up to 3 adults, and above all else; It's compact. However, it's too heavy for smaller vehicles. The Traveler solves that problem by adding a "wheel kit" to the original Classic. It's simple really. The frame for the Classic's Lift System unbolts, and the "wheel kit" effortlessly takes its place. With its now patent-pending "Wheel Kit" attached, the Traveler reaches another level of simplicity. Not only can you add more weight to the unit, but you can carry more stuff. When you're done, simply back into your garage, carport, or parking space and do 3 things:


  1. Release
    • Release from the hitch
  2. Roll
    • Roll into any area (less than 39 inches)
  3. Retract
    • Retract the patented swivel frame assembly into its vertical position.

Hitch Hotel's Traveler or Classic will have you covered

The global camping and caravanning market is expected to reach $50 billion by 20221

The travel market is expanding rapidly, especially for millennials. 40 Million people in the U.S. go RV /backyard or car camping and 38% of them are millennials. The RV industry in the U.S. has grown 200% in the last 8 years according to RVIA. Capturing just a single digit of this market would be huge and we are confident that at our low price point and ease of use, we will have no trouble doing so.

We've already reached over 320,000 potential customers through our website. Over the last 24 months, we've averaged over 13,000 visits a month. 

We started with an excellent Kickstarter campaign. Our online campaign was translated into no less than 9 languages. With news outlets like Forbes and Runners World posting our content to their message boards, we believe our product has been seen by millions of people. With that kind of exposure, we believe that the Hitch Hotel product line is quickly becoming a worldwide household name.

We are filling the gap between tents and traditional RVs

Hitch Hotel is customizable to fit every traveler’s needs or can be outfitted with just the basics. When compact, it takes up about 3 feet of space, allowing it to be stored in any garage, or even an apartment — no driveway necessary! Hitch Hotel is equipped with tail lights and other safety features. When you arrive at your destination, it simply expands, and you'll be ready to sleep in no time.

Few products are marketed or sold which are similar to Hitch Hotel

With 40 million people in the U.S. alone going outdoor adventuring there must be options for all these demographics, but the choices available are either too expensive or not adequate enough for the needs and wants of the public. Standard single axle trailers either cost twice as much, require larger storage footprints and high levels of maintenance. Roof top tents do not offer the security of the Hitch Hotel among other things. Hitch Hotel is providing a much-needed alternative to these current products.

We’re expanding the outdoors to more people and filling a void in the marketplace

Hitch Hotel is filling a new niche for those who can’t afford RVs or expensive trailers.  At a price point of either $4999 (classic) or $5699 (traveler), our price is a factor of 3 less than the average teardrop trailer ($15000). Plus, for those who don’t have more space to store their RV, our Hitch Hotel is compact and far easier to stash away when not in use. This product line is making the outdoors and camping truly available to anyone, as the current options in the marketplace are not affordable or convenient for the everyday person. It is our belief that owning this underserved population will make Hitch Hotel very attractive to large outdoor and camping manufacturers in the future, especially as we continue to grow and develop our product lines with exciting new features.

We have passion and expertise running the show

Geoff Patterson, President/CEO, is no stranger to hard work and seeing his ideas through to fruition. He has spent his life building companies from the ground up with his visionary leadership and passion. Geoff’s expertise in building from the ground up – whether it is a vehicle or a multi-million dollar business – will lead Hitch Hotel into top ranks of this ever-growing mega industry. Gil Goren, Vice President, is a proactive, results-driven professional who is consistently ranked among the top producers in various environments including established, emerging and startup operations.

We are disrupting the market with our innovative product

Despite America’s love affairs with smaller, sleeker gadgets and vehicles, no Travel RV company has followed suit. We couldn’t help but wonder—what about those giant tin can trailers and RVs of yesteryear? It is time for the Outdoor Industry to step into the future with Hitch Hotel. We have seen the space that needed to be filled and filled it with a product that is not only easy to use, safe, efficient, affordable and useful, but one that is fun and exciting. We see our unbelievable potential and hope that you join us on the next step in this journey.

Tiny House Talk
January 1, 1970

This is the Hitch Hotel. It’s a tiny camper that loads right onto the hitch of your vehicle so it has no wheels and weighs just 240 lb. Once you’re ready to set up camp it expands into a micro camper.

Lonely Planet

The Hitch Hotel, this new box attaches to your hitch (or tow bar) and securely stores mountain bikes, camping gear and other equipment, and then expands to provide a sleeping space for two to three adults.

The Manual

The new Hitch Hotel, billed as the “world’s first expandable wheel-less trailer,” may be the most clever and compact model we’ve ever seen.

The Coolector

just set off and see where the road takes you, you might just want to sit up and take notice of the Hitch Hotel, which is funding on Kickstarter now, and is basically a portable hotel room that your car wears like a backpack.

Continuous Patent update

23 days ago

Hi Everyone,

In an effort to continually build on our Intellectual Properties,  we are always adding additional patents to our Utility and Design Patent portfolios.   We currently hold 3 US Utility Patents with 1 pending. We also have a worldwide patent application that protects the design of the Traveler is under review.  We expect both to be approved within 18 months.


Attached is what is called a "Continuous Patent" amendment. The USPTO allows to continually add additional IP's to an existing patent: This can only happen if there is never a break in timeline deadlines for the  continuance. If a deadline is missed, the patent can never be added to in the future.  We have never missed a deadline.
