The SylvanSport GO camping and travel trailer is a great compromise between the simplicity of sleeping in a tent and the comfort of sleeping in a motor home. The trailer works like one of those pop-up campers but has a considerably smaller footprint and only weighs in at around 700 lbs allowing it to be pulled by smaller cars.
The tent can be setup in minutes and includes a custom Therm-A-Rest camp mattress that’s equal to a king-size and a half of sleeping surface. (Or it can be configured with two twin-size beds.) It also includes stargazing windows, excellent ventilation and the beds even convert to a table for when the weather or bugs made eating outside unpleasant. The tent itself packs down and stows inside the trailer’s roof/storage box allowing it to be used for hauling other gear when you’re not sleeping in it.
Of course if you also prefer camping on the cheap you might want to stick with your tent and air mattress since the GO trailer will set you back about $6,000.
