origin story

18 years ago, 5 good pals and their 3 rogue kids pointed south in a 31’ RV for 14 days. We hit every roadside taco stand, drank salty margs & ice-cold beers, laughed with locals, skipped showers for days and ran naked on the beach (well, the kids did). And we’re still friends. Days were simple, free-spirited, sun-soaked. No watches, no worries. By the time we crossed the border in Tijuana with salt on our lips and soulshine in our eyes, the best fish tacos & margaritas were still out there... at that moment the vision of el jet’s cantina + sky outpost was born. Coming in 2022, bringing Baja to you.

renovating vintage caravans

The Kickstarter campaign funding will help renovate and customize 10 vintage silver bullets into dreamy vacation pods for nightly/weekly/monthly 4-season rentals. Ryan Smith + Tim Navin are the craftsmen/artisans making it happen. Each custom reno will sleep 2-4+ and feature french doors opening onto a shady deck with epic views, queen bed, fold-out couch/bed, mini-split climate control, library lounge + coffee/laptop station. 'The Betty' is being built-out right now in Riverside, next to the property. We have 6 caravans so far (3 Spartans, 2 Airstreams, 1 Silver Streak) and are looking for 4 more... your contribution will help bring these 10 badass beauties to life!
