We provide tools to help people unplug and rediscover their natural state. We want people to travel, have new experiences, create new friendships, and find the joy of connecting to something bigger- The natural world.
The vision for Moonshot started when Parker Whitehead was traveling through the Canyon Lands of Utah. He saw a number of one-off camper vans being used as a movable home bases for active people that where hiking, biking, climbing, canoeing, and lounging about. He polled several owners to ask them where they had purchased their camper vans and was informed that for the most part the owners had built them on their own. With his background in Industrial Design , Startup business creation, vehicle fabrication, long distance hiking, and having lived in a camper van while working as a Yacht diver. Parker realized he possesed the unique skill set to solve the problem of there not being a consistent well built camper van for people that want to Get Out There. Parker also saw an opportunity to provide a cultural gathering place for a cause very important to him. Our Mission is to encourage people to have a connection to nature so that they would feel grateful and want protect the wild places.
We are a startup company that is built from the ground up after many hard lessons learned from a former business.
