Inka Outdoor, LLC is a North Carolina Limited Liability Corporation that was started by Mike & Blair Stanford. We are located at 1236 Industrial Avenue, Suite 107 – Gastonia, NC 28054 (west of Charlotte just off I-85) and we are available by appointment.
Mike (email@example.com) is an engineer and designer who spent two-decades designing and building advanced mobile-production, satellite, news and special-purpose vehicles for the always-on broadcast industry. This was followed by another decade of mechanical & electronic product development, parts sourcing, CAD design and the direct management of offshore manufacturing. A “serial skills collector,” Mike pretty much does it all.
Blair (firstname.lastname@example.org) is an accomplished business professional and respected leader who wrangles everything from Fortune 500 execs, US presidents and major economic & strategic projects down to office politics. She brings her considerable talent to drive development, operations and marketing for Inka Outdoor.
Wes (email@example.com) is a marketing and sales professional with a true passion for the outdoors. Wes believes time spent outdoors is not a luxury but a necessity for the human spirit. He has spent over twenty years working within this industry which includes the likes of major e-commerce outdoor retailers to professional outdoor coaching and training. His deep understanding and admiration for the outdoor consumer combined with his innate eye for detail has been his recipe for success. Based in the beautiful state of Utah, Wes will be the driving force as Inka Outdoor, LLC expands to the central & west coast markets.
Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org) is an experienced business operations manager & craftsman with a strong desire to be outdoors. Jeff spends his breaks kayaking, camping, hiking and seeking out great blues music. At Inka, Jeff is developing our operating plan and working hard to get our production running efficiently. His front office background and incredible patience have been invaluable in developing our internal processes and working with our customers. Look for Jeff at upcoming tradeshows and perhaps even on a few select deliveries!
Our Staff currently consists of seven full-time craftsmen and we are expanding to meet the exciting demand we’re experiencing.
In February of 2017, Inka Outdoor completed a move into a former textile mill in Gastonia, NC that offers us plenty of room to expand. We are currently in production, offering the Brevard Hustler™, Hustler-X™, Venture XC™and the Venture OHV™ teardrop style campers. Inka Outdoor operates using small-production-line techniques in our manufacturing process and we are not targeting the mass-market or traditional “showroom/dealer” sales structure – our vehicles will always be hand-built. We believe that by interacting with the buyer on a more individual level, throughout the build process, that we can deliver a closely tailored personalized unit that no other company can match. Each camper can be customized to to your taste and we’re open to discussing your ideas.
