LOS ANGELES, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When iKamper revealed Skycamp it promised to change camping forever. The product? A hard shell, expandable tent that sits snugly on the roof of your car and unfolds into a stylish, comfortable tent in under a minute. A tent so well-designed that anyone can set it up and take it anywhere. A tent that brings you closer to nature while making it easier to get there.
It didn't take long for the world to catch on: within 6 hours of Skycamp's launch on Kickstarter the company raised over $1M USD, making Skycamp one of the highest-funded design products in Kickstarter's history. Two weeks after launch, Skycamp has passed the $2M mark. And it's not hard to see why. The only product of its kind, Skycamp unites the portability and close-to-nature experience of a tent with the road-ready convenience of a trailer or RV. The tent can sleep two adults and two children, and a window in the roof allows you to really sleep under the stars.
Soon Park, iKamper's founder and CEO, dreamed up Skycamp when he took his family of four on a road trip around North America. The Park family covered 58,000 miles on their trip, unpacking, setting up, and repacking their pop-up tent trailer at every stop. Wanting an easier solution, and filled with boyhood dreams of treehouses, he set out designing a simple rooftop tent that brings campers closer to the trees and stars.
Clearly he wasn't the only one who wanted a better tent. New Atlas calls Skycamp an "innovation in canvas-walled sheltering." Pre-order customers cannot contain their excitement. "Very stoked! I actually purchased a new vehicle just for this," says one of the Skycamp's backers. "I haven't been this excited for something in a long time!" "All I need is my rooftop tent and some open road!"
Ready to hit the road and camp among the stars? You can pre-order Skycamp through Kickstarter until April 13. After that, the adventure is entirely up to you.
