To continue this growth I need another edge to the company. Essentially another source of income and access to a larger customer demographic. This movement will be entering into the Overland retail market.
In addition to selling and installing these units I plan to have a Jeep with a camper added to the rental fleet. This will allow potential customers to "drive before they buy" and also have a vehicle in a lower rental price range than the Sportsmobile.
This trailer, currently dubbed The Boreas AT ( I live on Boreas Pass) will offer off-road and off-the-grid capabilities. Features will include: sleeping for 2, with an option for an additional roof top tent, solar power, full galley kitchen, on board propane and water, independent suspension, 31x10.5 AT tires, 20" ground clearance, fully articulating hitch, and weighing in under 2000 lbs.
Custom built trailers will also be available for customers to order depending on specific needs or tow vehicles. I will also have at least one trailer available for rent to provide that "drive before you buy" option.
The above picture is the initial design. As the build moves along things are bound to change. I will be posting up a build blog for everyone to check out in the near future.
Once the prototype has been completed I plan to launch a crowd funding campaign. This will help to acquire a production facility in Denver and purchase additional tools and equipment to streamline the builds. Stay tuned for that launch!
