iKamper – A Brief History

Soon Park, iKamper’s founder and CEO, is a professional guitar player, self-taught engineer, business owner, and serial entrepreneur. He sold his snowboarding equipment shop in 2008 and decided to move from his homeland of South Korea to the US with his wife and two daughters. During their time in the US, they spent over 2 years on the road exploring, camping, and discovering.

After returning to South Korea in 2012, Soon founded iKamper. His fascination with tree houses as a child and the difficulties he experienced while camping on the road let him to develop iKamper’s first roof top tent, the Hard Top One, in 2014.

Given Korea’s smaller market size, Soon always had his eyes on the global market. Shortly after posting the first Skycamp on Facebook, it got picked up by major outlets such as Rockets Are Cool, GiGadgets, and Insider Design, quickly reaching over 100 million views.

The Skycamp shook the roof top tent industry, becoming the most successful tent project ever on Kickstarter, raising USD $2.37 million. Its innovative design, comfortably sleeping 3-4 people and allowing set up in less than a minute, led to its success: within 6 months of producing the first unit, Skycamps were shipped to 46 countries and sold at dealers in 14 territories.

The most satisfying feeling is seeing happy iKamper customers around the world, traveling and sharing pictures of their adventures.
