This rooftop tent raised 2 million on Kickstarter in just two weeks
A hard shell, expandable tent that sits snugly on the roof of your car and unfolds into a comfortable tent in under a minute raised 2 million dollars on Kickstarter in just two weeks time.
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.
Boyhood dreams of treehouses
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.
The tent can sleep two adults and two children, and a window in the roof allows you to really sleep under the stars.
