When Corey Weathers, started taking his family camping he quickly realized that he was about the only one who could deal with pitching tents, sleeping on the wet ground, and the constant lack of privacy. So he sought out a solution. As a sustainability consultant, he had something very specific in mind – a trailer that he could pull with a small and efficient car or SUV, that was capable of being off-grid, that was comfortable with some key amenities, and most importantly, that was made with sustainable and healthy materials. When the market didn’t provide what he was looking for, he got creative and what emerged was a beautiful and classy travel trailer that his wife, his girls, and everyone they bumped into on the road fell in love with.
And so Homegrown Trailers was born. The company wants to introduce compact, environmentally conscious, and healthy living spaces for all types of people, including those who haven’t travelled in RVs before, so it will be possible to rent as well as buy their homegrown travel trailer.
