Homegrown Trailers comes by its name honestly — company founder Corey Weathers built the first one himself.
“I built the first one in my garage just for fun without the intention of starting a business.”
That first trailer still sits in the Homegrown Trailers shop…named for the part of Washington that inspired Weathers to build it: Vantage
Today these trailers are crafted in Kirkland, Washington. They look retro, but bring some futuristic features to the campground.
“The trailers are all solar powered they have lots of light and air flow, there’s a big kitchen with the mini fridge and induction cooktop and a little mini composting toilet.” said Eric Gertsman, co-founder and marketing manager.
“We really wanted to do an RV that had the features and comforts of the tiny house and it didn’t exist,” Weathers adds.
Homegrown Trailers start at 25 thousand — but if you’re not ready to lay down that kind of money — there’s a way to try them out.
“One of the fun things is that we have a rental fleet so every renter gets to be part of our R&D department – they give us great feedback on what they liked what they didn’t like,” said Weathers.
“We think of ourselves less as a trailer company than as an experience company? We want people to go out and enjoy the world, have adventures. Go get lost in the forest somewhere, really live it up!” Gertsman said.
And they’re not just making travel trailers here… they’re making Happy Campers.
