About us

While driving back to Cali after a boat trip down the Colorado River, a father and son passed by a crowded RV park and got into a lively discussion about the cost, size, maintenance, gas consumption, and carbon footprint of the average RV—noting how these things compromise the very freedom owners seek. Ultimately, they questioned whether or not the average adventurer has the dollars, space, or time to buy, store, and maintain something as cumbersome and expensive as an RV.

In weighing alternatives like vans, tents, and teardrop trailers, they realized there were precious few options for space-and-time-strapped road warriors. Sure, they could always pitch a tent or tow a trailer, but what about their gear, sleeping comfortably off the ground, traversing the elements, and securing their stuff while exploring? And what about storage space and tow capacity for people with tiny homes and cars who also dream of big adventures?

At that moment, the idea for a small, towable, stow-able, retractable, lockable, weather-resistant sleep trailer that could double as on-the-road storage space was born. The following day, they started building the first Hitch Hotel.
