In 2009, roadtrip-loving Soon Park took his wife and two daughters on one heck of a camping journey: They drove all over America, racking up 58,000 miles over a span of three years. Park found himself dissatisfied with the UX of the conventional camping trailer they were towing, and upon their return he began designing a better solution.
That solution is the Skycamp, this easy-to-deploy and surprisingly roomy car-top tent, which eliminates most of the hassles of setting up a traditional tent and sets up in just 30 seconds:
The Skycamp has already been successfully Kickstarted, garnering $2.3 million on a $100,000 target. While the campaign is now closed, Park’s iKamper company is taking pre-orders. The basic unit starts at $2,649.
