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).

Lifetime Tent Trailer (Great Basin Tent) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for for outdoors people Purchased this and am very happy I did. You not only get a very spacious and durable tent that can be put up in minutes for not only a weekend camping trip but a day of fishing at the lake without a big hassle, but a quality trailer to haul off those down limbs or useless junk in the basement to the dump. You will not be disappointed. I am a big guy (360 lbs) and I sleep on the wings with no problem. Do it now...

Does the tent come with a rainfly to keep the inside dry during a storm?

Asked by: LloydH
This tent does not come with a rainfly because there is no mesh opening in the ceiling. It was tested in the rain and it did not leak.
