Micro camper trailers are quickly gaining popularity among outdoor enthusiasts, and it’s not hard to see why!
Almost any vehicle can tow a micro camper. They are versatile and multi-functional and an excellent option for anyone who wants to upgrade from tent camping or want more amenities with their camping experience.
Today we’re sharing the five best micro campers on the market!
What Is a Micro Camper?
Micro campers are small and lightweight camper trailers – typically weighing in at less than 2000 pounds, and can be pulled by just about anything.
Many micro campers pop open or extend upon setup to utilize the interior space and pack down smaller for travel.
Micro campers are an excellent option for those who don’t want to tow a larger trailer, don’t have space to store a larger camper, or want an upgrade from tent camping.
Without further ado, here are the five best micro camper trailers on the market today:
1. TAXA Cricket
The TAXA cricket is a lightweight and rugged micro camper that can sleep two adults and two children. This camper is 15′ in length, has a dry weight of 1,800 lbs, and can easily be stored in a garage when not in use.
The TAXA Cricket features a pop-up roof for ventilation and standing-room with five mesh windows in the pop-up tent panels. This micro camper makes the most of the tiny space with under-bed storage and a large kitchen counter with cubbies for storage and food prep.
It has plenty of amenities, including propane tanks, a full-size bed, a 2-burner stove and sink, 15-gallon fresh and 16-gallon grey water tanks, exterior shower, furnace and water heater, and comes pre-wired for solar.
2. Sylvan Sport GO
The Sylvan Sport GO is an incredible multi-purpose micro camper to suit even the most active of lifestyles. This camper is a pop-up tent camper, a gear transporter, and a utility trailer… all in one! The Sylvan Sport GO is about 12′ in length and has a dry weight of 840 lbs – making it towable by just about any vehicle.
In camping mode, this micro camper is a multi-functional elevated tent. The interior is bright and spacious with a 6.5′ ceiling height, oversized windows and screens, and many sleeping and dining configurations. It features an awning that gives you an additional 46 sq. ft of covered outdoor living space.
When the GO is in travel mode, you can load your gear on the roof to effortlessly bring along your camper, your boats, and your bikes! And, with a few easy adjustments, you can quickly transform the GO into a utility trailer for every day moving and hauling needs. This thing can be used for so much more than camping.
