Once you arrive at your favorite getaway destination, simply unload your equipment and you'll have the tent erected in just a few minutes.

Design Improvements

  • Lower Cost
  • Slightly larger trailer bed
  • Stronger V-tongue
  • Safer and easier to deploy wings. (65043 model had heavy wings)
  • Easier to use the trailer as a utility trailer because it's not as difficult to remove and store the tent
  • Lower center of gravity when hauling larger or heavy items improves highway safety
  • Lighter weight trailer gives you greater payload capacity and/or better for smaller vehicles to tow
  • Higher sides for greater payload area
  • Reduced time and easier tent set up
  • Front and rear gates for more options for entering the tent and trailer
  • Easier to secure camping gear in the trailer (rather than on top of trailer, especially when hauling an ATV)
  • Self supporting wings are easier to use for secondary purposes such as handyman projects ( drywall cutting, chop saw table, etc.) and allow for moving the trailer with the wings and/or tent deployed without having to have 5 people assisting which was not possible with the 65043 (of course this would not be for long distance or roadway movement or movement with much speed).


  • Dual-purpose trailer for hauling or as tent trailer
  • Trailer side gates lay down to create trailer wings to be used as twin bed platforms for tent or used as tables or workbenches without the tent
  • Tent designed with 2 doors, 8 windows, and 2 screened vents for ultimate ventilation and 360 degree view
  • Ramp accessory available to be used for bed extensions, loading ramps, and load support braces
