GET A PIECE OF CAMP365
Growing category in a huge market - The Global RV market grew to 70 billion in 2021 with CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) of over 10% 2022 -2028, and the greatest growth in lightweight and ultra-lightweight towable products.*
Disruptive product with strong growth - We have seen 10X revenue growth between 2018 & 2021. Launched a new 20k sq ft manufacturing facility, our third facility capable of producing thousands of campers & millions in revenue. Received a $1,000,000 order for a new Camp365 GoSun model. Received 1st Government order for OPS365 Mobile Emergency Command Center.
Growing IP Portfolio - Protected by the exclusive rights to 15 separate US, Canadian and foreign patents with other US & foreign patents pending.
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 electric vehicle range, costing customers $1,000’s in additional fuel cost. 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 And outdated designs and materials limit product seasonality and lifespan.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. Most campers have to be stored outside or in expensive storage facilities increasing ownership costs and limiting accessibility. Camp365 stores easily in a garage or storage shed saving customers thousands in yearly storage fees.
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.
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 between 1500 -1900 pounds (680-862 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.

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.
*Savings are estimated based on an internal analysis of typical consumer costs. Actual savings may vary.
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.
In 2019, 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 was 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 rose 37% to 528,000,200 in 2021 due to the global pandemic and more families wanting to enjoy the outdoors.1
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
In the next five years, 9.5 million people plan to buy an RV, including a younger more diverse group of buyers. Currently, 22% of RV owners are under 35 and nearly 31% are first-time owners.2

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.
We sold our first hand-built campers in 2018, seeing ~$88,000 in revenue. Just a year later, we 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 $745,000 in 2020. In 2021 we vertically integrated to reduce global supply chain shortages and successfully opened our 3rd plant a 20,000 sq ft in Iowa during the fall and grew to $880,000 mostly after the plant opened (2021 Audit).
With this recent traction in early 2022, we’ve formed a Joint Venture with GoSun, a solar appliance manufacturer, and received a structured $1 million order to manufacture Camp365 GoSun units over the year.
Our sales are a mixture of primarily direct to customers that are higher margin and select qualified high volume dealers. We recently received our first Government order for our new OPS365 Mobile Emergency Command unit. Our new product development team launched 2 new models in 2022 the Camp365 Base & Base X which achieved a lower price point and improved accessibility for our customers.
Since 2020 we have had 1.3 million visitors to our website with over 10X the amount of traffic from 2020 to 2021. Our marketing team generates 10 -20 sales inquiries a day from around the world via our website and social channels. Due to our continued growth, we have sold, delivered, or taken deposits on close to $2,000,000 in sales in 2022.
Research and Product Development
From our headquarters in Minnesota dedicated to sales, R&D, and fabric production, to our two plants in Iowa that are dedicated to the fabrication, final assembly, and painting of our folding cabins, we are committed to quality and scalability every step of the way.
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 15 separate US, Canadian, and foreign patents, with other US & foreign patent applications pending.
What We Do
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 $19,995 and $29,995. Financing options make ownership possible with monthly payments ranging from $175-$300 per 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.
The Business Model
Today, one in five leisure travelers is considering purchasing an RV(2021 RVIA Industry Report). We sell the revolutionary Camp365 folding cabin direct to customers we call, “Camp Counselors.” These raving fans come to our plant from all over North America (or visit our growing network of independent RV dealers across the United States and Canada) to have their Camp365 delivered to their door and explore our products created in collaboration with GoSun.
In 2021, we began to develop and expand our direct-to-customer sales. In 2022 we will continue direct-to-customer expansion. We just received our first government order and are pursuing 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
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.
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.
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.
Our camper is built to help people reconnect with nature on their own terms. If you believe that access to nature and a return to our roots is the way forward, you can be a part of the Camp365 revolution.
Our team is a unique mix of engineering geeks and avid outdoor enthusiasts, so we know the problems that millions of people face every year. With the combination of our backgrounds in engineering, product development, design, manufacturing, media, and business development, we believe our team truly has it all.
Camp365 designs and manufactures a new type of compact, towable camper that is allowing more people to enjoy camping and outdoor recreation without changing their everyday lifestyle. Our aerodynamic, ultra-lightweight camper can be towed by almost any car or UTV, while the compact design allows it to be easily stowed in a garage.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
