Sylvan Sport GO: Coolest Popup Trailer Ever

Lloyd Alter

The Sportsmens' Show is a haven for hunters and fishers and all kinds of motorized vehicles; TreeHuggers are shot on sight but hunters are often environmentalists too, and there are always a few finds, like this amazing Sylvan Sport GO trailer with pop-up camper; the smallest, lightest and coolest I have ever seen.

The remarkable thing about this is how it is really a trailer rather than a tent; you can carry bikes and sporting goods in it. But where is the tent?

It is hidden in that lid.

After you take your bikes or whatever out of it, you pop out the tent, install a couple of aluminum rods and you have a very comfortable camper. There are two full beds and a pull down dining table.

Normally a camper trailer needs a pretty big car; at 800 lbs this can be pulled by anything, probably even a smart car.

It is a marvel of design, to get so much into such a small space, that can let you travel light in a smaller vehicle. More at Sylvan Sport; (warning: annoying music) found at JR's Outdoor Store
