About Us

I wanted to go camping with my wife...

…But convincing her to sleep on the cold ground in the middle of nowhere was a tough sell. Car camping seemed like the perfect solution.

Until I saw the price tag.

If convincing my wife to join me on camping trips was difficult, dropping a couple grand on a tent would pretty much guarantee I’d be the one sleeping on the ground.

The more I thought about it, the less it made sense. How could rooftop camping—arguably the most accessible way for people to enjoy the outdoors—be so astronomically expensive?

The answer, it turned out, was simple. There are a lot of middlemen in the long chain from manufacturer to campground, and the markups along the way are, frankly, obscene. I knew there had to be a better solution, one that didn’t force a false choice between quality and affordability.

A few months later, Hutch Tents was born.

I personally vet every available fabric and design until I find the perfect mix of quality, durability, and affordability. Then I cut out the middlemen, sourcing my tents direct from the manufacturer so I can pass along the savings to my customers.

Because at the end of the day, the best adventure is one you can share.

Designed to take you from the mountains to the beach and everywhere in between, Hutch Tents fit seamlessly on most conventional trucks, SUV, and hybrid crossovers. Waterproof, mold-proof, and made from rip-stop poly canvas, our tents give new meaning to “living the highlife”. Take your car camping game to new levels and enjoy the great outdoors from a slightly elevated vantage point- just like nature intended.
