Gear Junkie Hiatus Campers Origin Story

How did Hiatus Campers come to be? It all started when a small seed was planted in the minds of our co-founders. In the beginning Tyler and Erin were traveling full time out of a converted truck canopy. After enduring their first rainy season with this build, they just wanted to be able to make a morning cup o’ Joe inside their rig!

This launched them into the idea of a hard-sided pop-up truck camper that could fit on the back of their first gen Tacoma. They built the predecessor to the Hiatus model, which had a much different construction and folding style. At the time they had not anticipated what this endeavor would lead to, let alone that it would turn into a fully fledged company.

During their travels, they met many interested folks who were curious if they could request a build of their own. Without having careers they felt tied to, the possibility of turning this passion project into a reality felt tangible. When they returned home from their travels, they took a leap of faith and decided to pop into the camper industry!

While the first build was very much a prototype, so much was learned during the process that helped shape the history of Hiatus. Without the crucial step of following an inkling, these campers may not have existed today.
