Has anyone bought the Lifetime Tent Trailer? Iím thinking about buying one. Any advice will be appreciated.
It is a small utility trailer/camping tent trailer. The sides fold out to provide what looks like a roomy tent trailer. It looks like it might work well as an off-road camping tent trailer if it is equipped with bigger wheels and tires. Itís light enough to be towed by just about any kind of Jeep and itís narrow enough for most any trail. But it is big enough to haul an ATV along with the tent and camping gear.
It looks like it would be nice to just pile my the camping gear in the trailer rather than stuff the inside of my your Jeep and then also have to put stuff on the roof rack. Also, since Iím getting older, it would be nice to sleep above the ground on what looks like a pretty normal bed in the tent trailer (you would need a good sleeping pad). Also, there is plenty of headroom to stand up.
Thereís no kitchen or any of the other nonsense of a pop-up type camper - just a tent on a small trailer. The trails that I go on would destroy most any typical pop-up camper. My idea of camping in Arizona is to go just about as far as I can go on the old very rough mining trails and then camp. NO obnoxious developed campgrounds with noisy RVís and neighbors.
Costco is selling the Lifetime Tent Trailer right now for $1,999.99. http://www.costco.com/Lifetime%C2%AE...&storeId=10301
. From what I have read about this trailer, keep in mind that ďsome (lots) of assembly is requiredĒ
Samís Club sells a similar Lifetime trailer for a little more money but with a little lighter tent material - check the specs. http://www.samsclub.com/sams/search/...equestid=89893
Price direct from Lifetime is about $3,000.00 (http://www.lifetime.com/trailers/lifetime-tent-trailer
) so Costco must be closing it out.
Iíve checked out some of the ďAdventureĒ type camping trailers and they are nice but very expensive. I donít want the Aussie type campers that go on your roof. Taking a leak in the middle of the night could result in a nasty fall :-(
