This is the biggest little camping
trailer! The basic tent is about 7-1/2 ft headroom at the
door, with adequate room for two people to stand indoors to get
ready for bed or dress. The bed is a queen with a very
comfortable mattress and egg crate topper. We found it
warm enough to just use a quality Goose Down comforter year
round (which can be folded up with the bed saving storage
space). Whoever is on the left side of the bed has a
zipper allowing access to the cooler, the sidewalls and front
door all have screened opening that really let the air
flow. The floor and top is a waterproof fabric and the
sides are quality tent canvas.
All the tent frame hardware is the same as
what boaters know a 'Bimini Top' so if anything needs replaced
or repaired the parts are readily available. Included are
a second set of wheels (white pinstripe). The tires on
these wheels are done for.
The bed and tent fold up and stow on top of
the cargo trailer, and you can access the cargo trailer with the
tent stowed, or deployed. There is so much room in the
'basement' that you will be able to pack for week long trips
easily. There is a Coleman cooler on the trailer tongue.
The dust cover has a very large pocket that accepts your two
folding chairs, folding table, and door mat, etc.
Speaking of the trailer tongue, because this trailer is designed for motorcycle touring the hitch rotates 360 degrees (allowing the bike to lean). This feature has no downside when towing behind an automobile.
Our unit comes with the very rare 'Add A
Room' feature, which attaches to the front door and encloses an
area large enough to cook during inclement weather and bug
We added some adjustable tent poles which
were used with a 10'x20' white tarp to provide a cool weather
proof roof with eaves over the tent (you'll supply your own
tarp). The poles are stowed on the bottom of the bed, top
of the cargo lid.
The trailer uses three jacks to level and support the deployed tent, and the head of the bed has its own swing down support. When correctly setup the system is very stable. The only tent pegs you'll pound will be for the tarp and/or the Add-A-Room. The basic Kwikamp sets up the same on grass, dirt or cement.
While it is easy for one person to deploy the
tent (in about 3 minutes), two people will not only speed it up,
but makes setting the tent supports evenly a one-shot
deal. Two people also significantly improves the speed and
ease of breaking camp and packing the tent, but it can be done
by one person who just needs to be in two places several times
during the process.
We loved this camp trailer, and hope you will
