Cedar Mountain, NC â€” When National Geographic Adventure saw SylvanSport’s â€œGO Mobile Adventure Gear,â€ they named it the â€œBest of Adventure Gear 2008,â€ calling this newly introduced multi-mode trailer â€œthe coolest camper ever.â€ If you love the outdoors and want to get after it while leaving no trace, then this precision-engineered â€œbackpack on wheelsâ€ enables you to haul all your gear and indulge in every adventure without compromising what gets left behind. The â€˜GO’ can comfortably sleep four and carry all your kayaks, canoes, bikes, ATVs, motorcycles and other toys. As Tom Dempsey, founder of SylvanSport, says, â€œ’GO’ is designed by gear heads for gear heads.â€
â€˜GO’ easily morphs from a low-profile high-capacity trailer, to a rugged hefty-toy-hauler, to a comfortable camper that can be pulled behind almost any vehicle. This super spacious camper, with its Hyper-Engineered aluminum frame, weighs only 700 lbs. and can haul up to 800 lbs. of gear. And if your â€˜honey-do’ list gets ahead of your next outdoor adventure, â€˜GO’ can handle full sheets of plywood and yard workloads like any full-size pickup.
In the compact Travel Mode, â€˜GO’ is a sleek, you-hardly-know-it’s-there trailer, easily towed behind most any vehicle. Engineered for minimum drag and super-fuel efficiency, the â€˜GO’ will get you and your gear to your destination without maxing out your BP card. Featuring 24 cubic feet of waterproof gear storage (9 cubic feet lockable), â€˜GO’ cruises with kayaks and canoes stowed securely, plus racking systems for bikes, boards and other fun gear. With its huge capacity, â€˜GO’ frees up space inside and on the roof of your tow vehicle. Its enhanced torsion suspension provides smooth load control to help protect your stuff during the journey. If that’s not enough, Travel Mode offers up to 13â€ of ground clearance and high flotation tires, making off-road use not just possible, but desirable.
In Transport Mode, â€˜GO’ redefines â€œcarrying the load,â€ transforming from the low-profile trailer to a heavy-duty toy hauler in minutes, thanks to its convenient easy-to-raise roofing system. One built-in cranking system does it all; no extra tools required. The proprietary Control-TiltTM cargo deck with hydraulic damping system makes it simple to angle down the deck (no ramps required!) and load all your moto-machinesâ€”ATVs, go carts, dirt bikesâ€”and more kayaks and canoes, too, with the Travel Mode’s roof racks and enhanced torsion suspension still in play. With diamond-plate flooring for heavy loads and the 800 lbs. load capacity, hauling serious adventure gear has never been more efficient and secure.
Feeling bonked after a full day of fun on the trail, water or mountain? â€˜GO’ offers a relaxing oasis for you to rest your tired bones. In minutes, â€˜GO Mobile Adventure Gear’ converts from Transport Mode to Camping Mode, thanks to its built-in innovative tent-deployment and bedding-pod systems. â€˜GO’ easily deploys its Kelty tenting system with all components already on-boardâ€”no extra tools, no PhD in physics required. And you choose from multiple sleeping configurationsâ€”all of which feature spaciousness and all-weather protection. You’ll really enjoy the safety and ease of the overhead camping pod with gas struts, as well as the versatility of the custom mattresses from Pacific Outdoor Equipment. The removable bed panels can be reconfigured as tables when its chow time or stowed in the overhead compartment for more open space.
â€˜GO’ is made in the USA from recyclable materials and will be available at select retailers beginning April 1st with a suggested retail price of $7,995.
