I have owned one for four years now. It was the 5th one off the production line, and with the 4 prototypes, the serial number is 9. It has hauled motorcycles, kayaks and bikes with ease. It weighs very little and even with a GS on it, a 4 cylinder can tow it anywhere. The biggest problem with it is that you are constantly asked questions about it at every campground. At the state parks in Michigan, without fail, even the park rangers are interested enough to come over and talk to us about it.

I have had a couple of very minor issues, but Sylvan Sport has stepped up and taken very good care of me. Great trailer and very useful for a variety of tasks. The tent is spacious inside with 7 feet of headroom.

While scouring the web, I found this little honey:







It's basically an old snowmobile trailer that somebody built on enclosure on. It looks like it would be a great setup to have a light duty, inexpensive toy hauler. I could set up beds, some small cabinets, etc. and haul the bikes inside. It's 8'x6'

The website has it at $7995 fully loaded. Not a bad deal for a very versatile setup.

a great trailer no doubt. One thing to consider however is out west in Bear country many of the national parks are or will soon be requiring a hard side camper. While we all know that a thin skinned camper is not stopping a teddy bear let alone a real bear that is the direction they are going.

Just something to consider...

Got a link for that? If true, that means you can't backpack or tent camp and I just find that pretty hard to believe.

While i understand the danger of bears ..And that the territory they are in is getting more stress from humans..
Sounds like another way to limit the public's use of of public lands..

but then again.. maybe i am wrong..

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

more like CSM material, but since I am posting ~from~ my trailer, I'll hazard a comment: When people sue the federal government for wrongful death and/or negligence when a man is killed by a billy-goat - you can ~EXPECT~ these" precautionary requirements". Fed gotta take steps to protect the idiots from nature (& themselves).

Oh yeah, and it's a 25' Forest River... not a piece of crap, but I don't much like it. 6,000# with a rear slide... NEVER get a rear slide.
