Happier Camper Launches HC1 Studio and HC1 Venture

We first laid eyes on a Happier Camper at a campsite near Flagstaff, Arizona. The occupants were out exploring the area at the time, but we noticed the orientation of the camping chairs waiting for their return – diagonal, the reach of the armrests just touching. The scene was picture-perfect tenderness, happiness, and satisfaction. The little Happier Camper was in its element, serving duty as a love nest.

Happier Camper has launched the all-new HC1 Studio and HC1 Venture, and both feature innovative, lightweight, and highly customizable builds. The HC1 Studio is inspired by the compact design of a modern studio apartment and is equipped for premium travel with an integrated kitchenette, bathroom, and shower. The HC1 Studio provides travelers the opportunity to comfortably extend their trips while being self-sufficient with the inclusion of solar power.

A roving home/food truck is a great way to travel and pay the bills if you are willing to live in a busy kitchen. The HC1 Venture is Happier Camper’s commercial solution and is a versatile package designed to facilitate commerce of all sizes. Brands like Equator Coffee and Samuel Adams Brewing have been using the original HC1 to serve their business needs by incorporating their own customizations. The Venture package builds upon that success by featuring two vending windows alongside built-in interior serving bars and a compact footprint ideal for both trade show booths and market stands. The Venture package is scalable as a mobile operation for small businesses or a fleet service for large-scale activations.

Both HC1 packages feature Happier Camper’s proprietary Adaptiv modular technology, are lightweight, and easily towed by most vehicles. The Adaptiv system allows for hundreds of different floor plan combinations to quickly enable sleeping, eating, cargo, working, and lounging needs.

“We had an incredible response with the original HC1 and always intended to evolve the platform based on feedback from our community, with the HC1 Studio and Venture, we appeal directly to campers that want a self-contained solution as well as businesses who want to take their services to wherever their customers gather.”

says Derek May, founder of Happier Camper.
