WHY WE BUILT IT

WE SAW A GAP

WHY WE BUILT IT 2019-05-22T17:04:04-06:00

THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT

After having collectively owned rooftop tents, ground tents, wall tents, pop up campers, adventure trailers, toy haulers, converted cargo trailers, repurposed VW busses, converted SUV’s, Vans, and basically every other option on the market, we were still unsatisfied.

With extensive experience providing quality mobile interactive adventure products in a different market, we knew it was time for us to use our expertise to build a product that all of us wanted, but didn’t exist.

Enter the AntiShanty.

Watch how we make it –

WHAT DID EXIST


Don’t get us wrong, there are plenty of products on the market that work great for certain folks, and we can appreciate that. However, we saw some gaps in the market and had some radical design ideas in mind.

THE MOBILE MANSIONS

BEAUTIFUL

There is no shortage of luxurious fully equipped travel trailers, motorhomes, and 5th wheels on the market. We wanted something that was less expensive, lighter, smaller, and eco-friendly. We also wanted it to have the essential features that make life on the road comfortable. Nothing More. Nothing Less.

THE ULTRALIGHTS

ULTRA MEGA HYPER LIGHT

The quality of materials when trying to eliminate weight is often what suffers in a trailers design. We wanted to build a trailer that was incredibly lightweight but still had the highest quality materials available. There were zero corners cut in the materials selection and building process.

THE A FRAMES

SMALL SLIPSTREAMS

And a classic design that has been around for decades and great for destination campers. We wanted something that was functional in tow mode. Access to the storage inside, and usability when in transport was paramount for us. We designed the trailer to be useful when fully deployed and while traveling.

THE MICROS AND TEARDROPS

GREAT FOR SOME

We love how they look as well. There is an incredible aesthetic to teardrop trailers and many beautifully crafted options on the market. We wanted a little more room to stand up uninhibited and plenty of space for 4 adults to stretch out and relax. We also wanted to bring along the pets, kids, and toys.

THE OFF ROAD TRAILERS

INCREDIBLY CAPABLE

Extremely capable rigs abound. Most of the time we aren’t pushing the limits of our 4×4’s and towing at the same time. We wanted something that had plenty of ability to get off-road and out there, but that also had standing height and hard walled sleeping for 4. We found what we believe to be a great balance of capability and comfort.

THE TENT TRAILERS

WE WANT WALLS

Off the ground, lightweight, small slipstream and a very outdoor feel. We wanted a solid structure that was highly insulated and impervious to the wind, drafts, and premature wear. Our design has eliminated any exterior fabrics or textiles.
