The world’s first universal modular tailgate system, born in Utah’s Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
Sunsets aren’t as spectacular when viewed through the windshield. Lunch isn’t as enjoyable when you’re teetering on a jagged rock. Most of us have encountered similar scenarios. You’re trucking around exploring the world and decide to stop and take in the view. But there’s no place to really sit back and relax.
While talking on a truck tailgate after a day spent outdoors with their dad, Jeffrey Green, brothers Dillon and Tyler did a little brainstorming. The brainstorm led to creating a locking tailgate pad for bicycles a step farther, proposing a universal modular tailgate system that included chairs and a cooler. And that’s how the company Cache—named after the National Forest in the Green family’s backyard—and its flagship product was born.
Within a few months, the trio had a tech pack and prototype for a pickup truck accessory like no other. The theft-resistant pad is designed to fit vast majority of trucks, without blocking the backup camera and also working with most roll top and truck caps. Unfortunately, Jeffery passed away unexpectedly during this time and never saw the project completed. After a period of mourning, the brothers got back to work and named the soft-sided cooler compatible with their tailgate system after their father so his legacy would live on. Collapsible tailgating chairs and versatile features like a payload strap for locking items down round out the Basecamp Kit.
The Basecamp Kit quickly earned praise in the outdoor world. Gear Junkie referred to it as “a tailgate living room that can do it all.” From early-morning surf sessions to all-day sporting events and weekends in the wilderness, Cache’s products make your adventures more comfortable and enjoyable.
