The Modern Camper

Growing up, my family did a lot of camping, traversing the best Wisconsin state parks with our trusty popup camper in tow. Many of my favorite memories from growing up are those in which I was camping and spending time with my family in the great outdoors. That's why I was so excited to learn about a new "camper-esque" product on the market for today's adventure lovers...

Recently awarded the coveted designation of “Men’s Journal Gear of the Year 2008,” Sylvan Sport’s GO is the most unique, intuitive, versatile, and lightweight mobile adventure camping and travel trailer ever created.

The all-aluminum, low profile design weighs in at just 800 pounds and can be pulled behind even the smallest cars. You can stow up to 800 pounds of equipment in one configuration, and strap gear and bikes to the Thule-compatible roof rack system in another.

The tent fits cleanly into the roof’s storage box, and when you’re ready to set up camp, the tent stands up in just two minutes. The camper-esque dome tent offers a dining table and space for up to four adults. The GO also comes with a locking, weather-proof gear box where you can keep all of your camping essentials. The GO will set you back $8,000.
