The biggest, but least gratifying, expense in cross-country car travel is the simple act of sleeping. Can't do without it, but it sure eats up a big chunk of the vacation budget. Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to free up that hard earned cash so it could be devoted to more memorable pursuits like sightseeing and great meals?
Habitents was invented in 2010 by Cory Carlson, an attorney and Prius owner longing for a comfortable alternative to motels that either charge a king's ransom for a place to lay your head, or "budget" motels that require a leap into the great hygenic unknown. Avid campers and canoeists for 30 years in the Minnesota Boundary Waters, Cory and his wife Mary wanted a quick and convenient way to sleep during cross-country car trips that allowed them to take advantage of the numerous beautiful and accessible state and national parks rather than sleeping at noisy motels next to the freeway. Cory is 6'4" and Mary is 6'0". After thousands of miles testing the Habitents, in 2012 they decided to share Habitents with other Prius owners who appreciate the same value and ingenuity that led them to become Prius owners in the first place.
Although made for the Prius, the Habitents fits quite nicely on the Honda Insight. And, Habitents has a patent pending(13/476,968) for all makes and models of wagons and hatchback cars. So, if you have a car that you believe would provide suitable space and comfort for car camping, please contact us and we'll consider it for our next design.
