The Leentu Difference
Inspired by the classic Westy ethos and modern "triple bottom line" approach pioneered by Patagonia, we began this journey with the goal of developing the ultimate adventure camper – a design that would bridge the gap between an unwieldy roof-top tent and a heavy slide-in camper. We also wanted something that would allow us to utilize our trucks effectively around town while working our 9 to 5 contractor jobs, then transition seamlessly to overland and off-road pursuits, and set up in seconds. After methodically constructing, testing, fine-tuning and thoroughly abusing our two prototypes -- from Baja to Moab, Humbolt to the Mojave – we finalized our design, confident that our ultra-lightweight, low-profile camper achieves each of these goals while providing the depenability and comfort required from a true expedition ready pop-up camper.
By partnering with IndyCar manufacturers and utilizing premium aerospace materials, we're able to build ultra-lightweight, high-performance campers unlike anything else on the market. 100% designed and built here in the USA.
Ultra-Lightweight: Hassle-free two person installation, retain payload capacity, no permanent truck modification required.
Aerodynamic: Streamlined design reduces drag, maintains MPG, and avoids negative impacts on handling.
Ease-of-Use: Deploy or break down in seconds. Lofted bed quickly converts to lounge seating or stows in moments.
Flexibility: Maintain the utility of your 9 to 5 workhorse. Open interior allows for maximum utilization of bed footprint to meet your unique set of around-town and camping requirements.
Smart tech: Interior & exterior LEDs, charge ports and a ventilation fan. Pre-wired for solar; integrated 60W panel included standard with Leentu Carbon Camper.
Lower VOC / Low Waste Process: At Leentu we care about making an all around better product and we believe that responsibility starts with the most basic elements of a design. The pre-Impregnated composites we use, while being some of the strongest declassified materials known to humans, are also far less toxic than a typical wet layup fiberglass processes. Not only are the resins themselves much less volitile and toxic than the poly and vinyl esters typically used in automotive applications, but because of our design we use far less raw material than similar designs.
Our composite sandwich structure allows us to eliminate hundreds of pounds of (mostly) resin and composite fabric per unit. Low toxicity and low waste makes Leentu Campers more environmentally friendly to manufacture, while low weight makes them safer to own (not to mention more economical at the pump)! Plus, our manufacturing partners and all of our in-house assembly processes are housed at centrally located facilities in Indiana. None of this is a mistake, we want our workers, our customers and our Earth to be healthy and happy. After all isn't that the whole the point?
