nuCamp RV, a camper and teardrop trailer manufacturer, announced Dec. 30 an Americanized version of the U.K.-based Barefoot will hit U.S. production lines in the near future.
The Sugarcreek, Ohio-based company said the first nuCamp fiberglass shell arrived in December after Covid-related delays. The retro-style camper will be a one-piece solid shell, nuCamp stated, compared with other fiberglass campers traditionally manufactured in multiple pieces.
“The production and future launch of the product is taking us longer than we would have liked,” CEO Scott Hubble stated.
Company officials identified product adjustments to the unit’s fiberglass shell, with a modified version in production before the first prototype is assembled. nuCamp noted that the body adjustments will further delay Barefoot’s release.
“We will not settle until it is done right and meets our standards,” Hubble stated. “After all, we want to continue to exceed your expectations, even if that means delaying the launch. We are 100 percent committed to the Barefoot and launching the product in the U.S. The future is bright with the Barefoot.”
