We welcome all in the iKamper community regardless of ethnicity, education, race, nationality, gender, age, religion, or belief.

The iKamper Story


Jack Kerouac’s "On the Road " deeply inspired Soon Park, iKamper’s founder. The themes of adventure, discovery, freedom, and passion deeply resonated with Soon, who traveled all over the US between 2009 and 2012 with his family. Soon met incredible people throughout his travels and visited beautiful locations, which is the origin of iKamper’s slogan “Love People, Love Nature”.

"With our shabby trailer, we drove 58,000 miles around North America. The trip was not always filled with wonder and excitement: we had to change flat tires three times on a road where cars passed by only every hour or so. However, we witnessed the kind smiles coming from the poorest people in the richest country, and we danced under the pouring light of galaxies in the desert. Imagination became reality, freedom was understood, and mutual understanding between humans and nature all gathered in a single place during our trip."

- Soon Park, Founder of 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.

iKamper - How It Came to Life.

In January 2017, Nathan Hendrix joined the iKamper team to facilitate access to the global market. Sharing Soon’s passion for travel and adventure, his goal is to grow the brand internationally.

In February 2017, iKamper’s most innovative roof top tent yet, Skycamp, launched on Kickstarter and quickly became the most successful tent project ever on crowdfunding, raising USD $2.37 million over 45 days. Throughout the rest of 2017, more than one thousand Skycamps were shipped to 46 countries around the world.

In January 2018, the Aioks all-in-one kitchen system (formerly called the "EatOut") was successfully funded and was placed in the top 1% of campaigns on Kickstarter.

In May 2019, iKamper opened its US office in Seattle, WA to focus on the US market. One year later in May 2020, iKamper USA opened a warehouse and moved its office to Kent, WA in the greater Seattle area. Our team has been expanding as our business grows, and we are excited to see what the future holds for us!

iKamper is a small, family-owned, company with big dreams: our goal is to make iKamper into a leading global brand, one that focuses on innovation and quality.


iKamper: Innovation & Quality


All of iKamper’s products are the creation of its founder, Soon Park, a self-taught engineer who enjoys bringing his creations to life.

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.
