Sylvan Sport GO – now you can take everything

Image

The Sylvan Sport GO is one heck of a camper. I just don’t know how they managed to squeeze so many options into such a tiny package. Basically, it’s a cross between a pop-top camper and a tent but it’s much more than both.

Image

In travel mode it’s very compact and quite light (about 360kg) and can be towed by pretty much anything. When you get there, unhitch, drop the legs and wind up the roof. The tent part is stored in the plastic compartment and drops down and the walls are held in place via flexible poles like modern tents. Each of the beds are supported by swing out metal frames.

Where the Go excels though, is how much extra stuff you can bring along with it. There’s a large space between the wheels for bags and fishing gear, or raise the roof, and there’s room for four bikes or two motor bikes or even a quadbike if that’s your thing. It tilts as well to allow bikes and quads to be rolled on so you don’t need ramps. There’s space on top too for another bike, a car pod, or a brace of kayaks.

When the holidays are over the Go still pulls its own weight, literally. It can carry 360kg to be exact. You can use it to haul firewood, take stuff to the tip or bring back raw materials for Sally and Jimmy’s treehouse that you’ve been promising to build them.

Very cool stuff.

This is the most unique camping and travel trailer you’ll ever find. The GO was designed from the frame out to be a one-of-a-kind mobile adventure trailer that’s even more versatile than a Swiss Army knife. It’s lightweight and easy to manage in the parking lot, garage or on the road. Weighing in at 800 lbs, the GO can be pulled by even the smallest cars.

    Fine, now make it 1/3 the weight and 1/3 the size, so that I can tow it with my motorcycle.
    All I need is something for two people to sleep in and sit on to eat at.

    • If Goldwings can tow cars, then surely your bike can tow this. Just put a bigger sprocket on it, that fixes everything. :)
