Centre Partners Gathr Outdoors acquires Cascadia Vehicle Tents

Gathr Outdoors, a diversified global designer and manufacturer of outdoor products and sporting goods and a portfolio company of private equity firm Centre Partners, has acquired Cascadia Vehicle Tents (CVT).

Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Based in Bend, OR, Cascadia Vehicle Tents is a family business that has become an industry leader developing rooftop vehicle tents, awnings, off-road trailers and car camping equipment for cars, trucks and SUVs. 

Gathr Outdoors, formerly known as MacNeill Pride Group, was unveiled earlier this month to reflect the company’s transformation as it continues to build a leading outdoor recreation platform. 

Bobby Culpepper and Jamie Rose are CVT’s co-founders. Culpepper will remain with the company as president and oversee its day-to-day operations. He will report to Cory Tholl, president of the Gathr Outdoors Camp segment, which also includes Klymit and Rightline Gear.
