AN ULTRALIGHT ADVENTURE UTILITY TOWABLE

We get it. In a world of brands constantly claiming the NEWest MOSTest BESTest everything it is easy to become jaded.

To start, lets go over what it isn’t and how we got our name.

Anti : noun | one that is opposed to.

Shanty : noun | a small crudely built shelter typically constructed of wood.

The AntiShanty is opposed to small crudely built dwellings typically constructed of wood.

“Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one,  joined in a spiritual union.”

– FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS


In the design phase of the project, we dissected the concept down to the smallest detail. Starting from scratch gave us many advantages, the greatest being a blank slate to work from.

ALUMINUM CLAD

Built Like A Ship

Eliminating as many potential leak points as possible is paramount for keeping a boat afloat. That is why you don’t see many water vessels with patched together hulls and decks. Laser cutters, gigantic one-piece panels, CNC machines, and master craftsman ensure your mobile dwelling is as airtight as it can possibly be.

GREEN

EARTH FRIENDLY

Aluminum is the most abundant metal on earth. Lightweight, incredibly strong, and resistant to rust rot and other problems commonly found in metals makes it a stellar choice for the strength of the structure. No paints or other harmful materials are used in the construction process.

NO WOOD

WOOD IS GOOD

. . . for a lot of things. Timber framed housing, campfires, butcher block countertops, all great uses for wood. When making an ultralight portable dwelling that is mega resistant to rot, mildew, water absorption, mold, and decay not so much. For every AntiShanty on the road, there are 10 more trees still thriving in the forest.

STANDING HEIGHT

NO MORE CROUCHING

There are many ultralight options out there but they all seem to lack one thing. Headroom. A 9 + foot tall cathedral ceilings give the micro-unit a macro feel. There is nothing worse than coming home from a weekend away with a crick in your neck from crouching around your living space. Yogis can even practice uninhibited when the weathers bad.

HARD SIDED

NO CANVAS

Bears, wolves, and other predatory mammals out in the wild will be kept at bay. The hard-sided walls and roof give an added sense of security and protection from the elements and animals when exploring new places. Wind, rain, snow, and Wolverines don’t stand a chance at disturbing the peace in your fully enclosed personal space.

UTILITY

MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS

The AntiShanty is just as functional when deployed as it is in tow mode. Use it as a utility trailer to move friends, a toy hauler to bring the motos with, a teardrop camper for quick camping while on the road, and even as an accessory dwelling when the inlaws are in town. Multiple uses reduce the number of things necessary to purchase and maintain.
