Made in California in a State-of-the-Art Industrial Design Facility
A pursuit towards perfection
Elisabeth Gritsch and Travis King
Past life in Automotive and EV Start-Ups in luxury segment, plus 6 years of owning a luxury RV Rental company, had them thinking about how to offer something better in the RV/Trailer industry. With a love for camping, off-road and family adventure, it made sense to build an off-road trailer that is a hybrid of compact capabilities with full-size features into a perfectly fun trailer. They went to drawing boards, and after 18 months of testing, developing, they delivered their first model, "Purpose."
With backgrounds in Automotive Engineering, RKS Off-Road's leadership has paved the way for a new approach to trailer development, with a focus on quality and customer experience.
