The Ultimate Protection from Sun or Rain is Incredibly Durable and Sets Up in 90 seconds

Portland, OR – November, 07, 2023 – Humbra, pronounced Hoooombra, today announced Firefly, its revolutionary hitch-mounted canopy for trucks and SUV’s, launches on Kickstarter.

People love spending time outdoors – from tailgating at a local sports game, spending a day at the beach, off-road camping, or just about any activity you can think of. But everyone needs a break from the sun, and standing around in the rain isn’t much fun either.  The problem is most vehicle awnings require roof racks and tie-downs for support, take up extra parking space, and are NOT designed to work on pickup trucks. This was especially concerning to high-end design and fabrication expert, Kevin Craford, who was about to embark on an offroad trip to Death Valley during the throes of the COVID pandemic. And that’s when he came up with the idea for Firefly, a versatile, hitch-mounted canopy that is incredibly durable and provides substantial protection from the elements.

Humbra’s Kickstarter offer is an amazing way to be part of something really COOL and useful. Backers who secure their Firefly in the initial 48 hours can grab it for an INCREDIBLE $995! – a deep cut from its $1495 MSRP. Each VIP package includes. 

  • Massive 15′ x 8′ Firefly Canopy 
  • Humbra Hitch 
  • Telescopic Aluminum Suction Cups (x2)
  • Durable Rip-Stop Carry-bag
  • 2-Year Manufacturer Warranty


“I can’t even begin to tell you how pumped I am that you’re along for this ride,” says Kevin Craford, founder of Humbra. “When I initially pitched this ‘crazy idea to our manufacturing team, eyebrows were raised, but here we are, and I can’t wait for you to experience the Firefly. Trust me, this is going to redefine your outdoor experience.”


Engineered and designed with the highest quality materials and manufactured by MDT-tex®, a world leader in sun and rain protection systems, nothing comes close to the versatility or functionality of the Firefly. With a 90 second setup time and an impressive 115 square feet of coverage, this hitch-mounted canopy is your go-to solution for mobile shade and rain protection – at the jobsite, tailgating, hitting the beach, or adventuring off-road.
