I have covered the SylvanSport GO in a past post but have never had the privilege of seeing one in person. I have always been impressed by the creativity and quality of this little camping trailer.
A couple of weeks ago, I was able to see one in person for the first time. First off, I want to tell you that I receive no monetary reward for sharing this product with you. The reason I am promoting it is that I really like it and and want to share my personal experience with you.
SylvanSport does not have a dealership in my area, however, when I mentioned that I would enjoy seeing a GO in person they put me in touch with someone in my area who owns one and is willing to share it with others. Peter lives about an hour north of me and he and I arranged to get together so he could show me what it looked like and how it worked in person. I attempted to shoot pictures as we assembled the GO and have put them in this post to show you.
The Go is a cool little camper, but so much more. Weighing in at just above 800 pounds the GO is easy to move around by just about any vehicle. Peter pulls it with his Honda Element.
The GO is more than just a tent trailer, it can haul your toys: ATV’s, mountain bikes, kayaks, motorcycles, etc. It is easy to change from one aspect to another.
When you arrive at your destination, remove your toys and start setting up camp. You can view the assembly video below.
It is very easy to assemble, Peter let me do the bulk of the work and though I was a little slow it still only took between 10 and 15 minutes to assemble. If you did it two or three times you could probably cut the time in half.
I have always been impressed by the quality of the GO on their website. Seeing it in person made me a believer in what I had seen. Each piece has its place and everything snaps together just like it was meant to. The first thing you should do make sure it is level. Once that is completed you crank up the top and start assembly of the sides which are actually the beds. Then, let down the tent from the convenient top and connect it to the trailer. The steps go into place, the bed platforms set in, the table put up. It is now ready to be a comfortable home away from home.
Many may consider the SylvanSport GO to be expensive, but this is a case of you get what you pay for. The GO parts are mainly made in America. It is a well thought out unit and you will enjoy it for years to come. If you get a chance to check one out be sure you do!
Thank you again Peter for taking the time to share it with me. Learn more at the SylvanSport website.
