Airskirts Adopts Unique Fundraising Plan To Handle Accelerated Growth In 2022
Sometimes a new product is so clever, other times it may be timely. In the case of AirSkirts, it’s both. AirSkirts recently announced a seed funding round to accelerate the growth of their innovative line-up of inflatable RV skirt kits. Unlike traditional skirting methods that require drilling dozens of holes into your RV or messy DIY solutions, AirSkirts® is the first ever inflatable RV skirt system to insulate your camper.
Inflatable RV Skirts – Rapid Growth, Creative Fundraising
As the only skirting solution retailers can sell off-the-shelf, AirSkirts® inflatable design succeeds where other skirting methods fail – providing a durable, easy-to-install insulation solution that is resistant to extreme weather. The modular design makes year-round RV life possible and fits any travel trailer, motorhome, fifth wheel, or tiny house.
“Support from investors will help us take things to the next level. Together we can bring much-needed climate tolerance solutions that will last for decades to the rapidly growing RV community. I created AirSkirts after several frustrating seasons in my Airstream and I’m convinced it offers the best protection for your RV.”×
Jim Phelan, Founder and Managing Director of AirSkirts
Revolutionary RV Skirting Option
Historically, RVers had limited and often time-consuming options to skirt their trailers. AirSkirts® has changed the game with the world’s only inflatable design for year-round RV living that is installation-free and can be retailed at scale. The robust kit creates a large barrier of trapped air between two layers of PVC that acts as an insulator. This prevents freezing pipes, retains heat, gives you warmer floors, and saves on energy. Kits set up in under 30 minutes with ultra-durable, military-grade construction that requires no drilling of holes or messy homegrown solutions.
As the pandemic supercharged the RV lifestyle into a $20 billion dollar industry, AirSkirts® propelled onto the scene at just the right time. The bootstrapped start-up’s explosive growth combined with energy from new investors is setting up the company for the long-haul. With over 11 million American households owning an RV and 1,000+ satisfied AirSkirts® customers around the U.S., the family owned and operated company aims to offer fresh products to support the RV lifestyle. Funding will be utilized to make inventory more robust, improve production and shipment logistics, and expand product development and marketing efforts.
