About Haven Tents

The Haven Tent is here today because my wife McKenzie and I decided to make 2018 our Year of Creativity. We were on the back half of a world tour with our young 3 kids. As @FiveTakeFlight we visited 38 countries in 54 weeks... It was the busiest and best year of my life.

The last week of that crazy year brought us to our family ranch in Promise, Oregon where the idea for the Haven Tent was born.

I was laying in a camping hammock, trying to get comfortable, when I envisioned my head and feet lowering so my body was on a single plane. With this spark of an idea, the wheels started turning. Just before I shut the whole thing down due to a lack of time or expertise, I remembered that 2018 was our Year of Creativity. And thought, “This is my chance to make something.”

Our Mission

As an avid outdoorsman, it was hard to reconcile the fact that every amazing day spent in the woods, would be punctuated by a miserable night. I designed the Haven Tent with the goal of, making sleep the highlight of camping.
