Lightship Raises $34M in Series B Funding


Lightship, a San Francisco, CA-based all-electric RV company, closed a $34m Series B financing.

The round was co-led by Obvious Ventures and Prelude Ventures and joined by Allegis Capital and global RV manufacturer THOR Industries and its investment partner TechNexus Venture Collaborative. Returning investors Congruent Ventures, HyperGuap, and Alumni Ventures also joined the fundraise.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate production of the Lightship L1.

Founded in 2020 by CEO Toby Kraus, Lightship is an all-electric RV company designing and producing aerodynamic, battery-powered trailers for the electric age. The all-electric RV features a massive battery energy storage system, electric propulsion and enough solar to power the vehicle for a week off-grid. The company, which has new production facility in Broomfield, Colorado, anticipates the creation of numerous high-tech engineering and manufacturing jobs as it scales up production to meet high demand following its launch.
