With a degree in Outdoor Education and Recreation, Colin spent most of his early twenties guiding rock climbing and whitewater kayaking excursions. It was during this time, when home base was the back of a Tacoma pickup, that Colin thought a lot about what an ideal overland vehicle might look like.
With a pile of pop-up camper sketches, teardrop trailer layouts, and overland vehicle designs in hand, Colin eventually turned to his father for input and expertise in bringing his ideas to life.
A lifelong designer, woodworker, boat builder, and furniture maker, Bradley holds a degree in Fine Arts. While he has designed everything from technical graphics and vapor condensers, to intricate view cameras and dining tables, Bradley now enjoys working alongside his son, helping him translate his big ideas into buildable reality.
