All about Camp365
We know it sounds cliche, but Camp365 literally started with a drawing on the back of a napkin.
At a family gathering, company founder Kevin McGregor’s uncle Scott sketched out his concept for a foldable, aerodynamic camper that could go just about anywhere, comfortably house a family of six, and still easily stow in a half of a garage stall. Uncle Scott used his original drawing to build a scaled model featuring a toy UTV and a G.I. Joe™ action figure.
Sold on the concept, McGregor assembled a team of outdoor enthusiasts and engineering nerds with a shared a vision for revolutionizing the camper market. We worked nights, weekends, and lunchbreaks in a single stall garage and transformed that tiny model into a full-sized prototype. Years of field testing followed, and while there were some updates and modifications, Uncle Scott’s original design proved so innovative that we were awarded several patents along the way.
In 2018, we spun up production in our Eden Prairie site and successfully introduced Camp365 to the RV market. Since then, Camp365 has continued to grow, expanding our manufacturing capacity with the opening a second manufacturing plant in Albia, Iowa, and a third plant scheduled to open in May 2021.
Our passion for the outdoors is driven by our families. It started with strong-willed Grandmas whose zest for joy and fun-filled family adventures gave our team the “Grandma Certified” standard of excellence that we strive for every day. Our own families are blessed by children with special needs that remind us every day that nature should be accessible to everyone.
Camp365 was founded on a core principle that human beings are happiest and healthiest when we spend time outdoors. That is why we build and deliver ownership experiences that make camping easy and comfortable for everyone. From urban dwellers with limited storage space and electric hybrid cars, to rugged UTV trail hoppers who boondock in the deepest parts of the big woods, and to large families (pets included!) looking to enjoy a vacation outdoors. We are committed to making products that intersect accessibility and comfort, and we want it to be as easy and fun to buy our campers as it is to use them.
We also know that camping needs change with the seasons and with life. Camp365 is committed to making sure “The Cabin that Goes Everywhere” offers owners a lifetime of outdoor enjoyment, any day of the year, and for anywhere your adventures take you.
