Our new home: The SylvanSport GO camping trailer

Hey, looked what we picked up in Atlanta, Georgia:

Sylvan Sport GO

Nope, not a bi-level house with brown shutters.

We are the proud new (albeit temporary) owners of a SylvanSport GO camping trailer because SylvanSport signed on as a sponsor of the Get Out More Tour. Yay!!!

This little trailer is amazing. So let me show you how it works.

First of all, it only weighs 840 pounds. It can be towed by almost any sedan, including a Prius. When it is in travel-mode it looks like this:

National Geographic Adventure called it the coolest camper ever.

You can pop the top up and store bikes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards or any of your other gear in the utility trailer bed (those fold out sides you see in the photo below will lock straight up to create a gear-storage cage). You can also store gear on top of the trailer on the camper pod.

To set up the camper, you just pull a handle on the little gray camper pod up top and the tent comes out:

Then all you’ve got to do is insert the tent poles:

And you’ve got a little camper on wheels! It takes us about 10 minutes to set up now but I bet we’ll get even faster as time goes on.

There’s a large vestibule you can attach to the door of the trailer to create a shaded area:

And, of course, there’s a ton of room inside! You can see our beds on each side of the camper. There’s also a piece that folds down in the middle that will create a king-and-a-half size bed or a table. That piece is on back-order at the moment, so we are waiting patiently until it arrives.

As Brian says, home is the place you hang your prayer flags.

Then again, I’ve always said that home is the place I store my books.
