Are you one of the millions of Americans thinking about RVing this summer? If so, here’s a little lightweight camping trailer that’s ideal for anyone who wants to try this awesome lifestyle without the expense of buying a heavier tow vehicle: The Little Giant Camping Trailer. Made by Let’s Go Aero, it’s a double-duty work-and-play setup.
A Big Trailer for Small Cars
Big trailers precariously pulled by little cars are a regular sight on the highway. These owners obliviously drive overloaded SUVs and light trucks down the road, unaware of the dangers of exceeding the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of their automobile. These are accidents waiting to happen, that could be avoided with an appropriately sized lightweight camping trailer. The adorable mini-RV is a perfect example.
For outdoor adventurers who want to own a lightweight camping trailer, but don’t have the right tow vehicle to pull one, The Little Giant Camping Trailer is an ideal choice. This ultra-light, all-in-one cargo, utility, and camping RV can be pulled by nearly any vehicle with a trailer hitch. Made by Colorado manufacturer Let’s Go Aero, it’s basically a pick-up truck bed on wheels that converts to a camping tent.
The ¾ ton truck bed body features a tough, weather-resistant shell, torsion axles, steel fenders and full LED lighting. It looks heavy, but with a payload capacity of 1500 pounds, a tongue weight of 30 pounds and a GVWR of 1920 pounds, this little RV is ideal for anyone who wants to try RVing without the expense of buying a heavier tow vehicle. The Tow Rating is a “1”, which means small cars can pull it on paved or unpaved roads.
Use it for everyday cargo hauling, then take it out on the weekends for a mini-RV getaway. You never need to sleep on the ground again, and don’t have any of the costs or maintenance of owning a traditional RV. Here’s how it works.

Hi, it’s “Gross Vehicle Weight Rating,” not Ratio. And what is a “Tow rating is 1”? Has the manufacturer developed an entirely new tow rating system that’s different than the rest of the world uses? In what way does the tow rating indicate if the vehicle can be towed on gravel or paved roads, and by a certain vehicle size? To avoid confusing the newcomers it’s best to stick with standard nomenclature.

Been wanting to find something to tow behind my Honda CRV. Is there a local merchant selling these? Wondered about the price.
Why not just buy a tent. You can get a nice tent and a lot of equipment for a few hundred dollars and you won’t have to worry about towing anything. This looks like a tent attached to a utility trailer.
John Purdum says
If you have a small SUV, with limited cargo area that can go off road, get a small utility trailer and put your gear in it and have fun.
I know I’ve seen people at campgrounds with small U-Haul type trailers full of gear, being towed by small cars and Utes.

Just under $5,000 is the MSRP.

Looking to purchase the LittleGiant Trailer. How would I go about this? Thanks!
Rob England says
Is the Trailer and Tent soled separately?
Chess rinker says
Would have been nice to see more of the inside. What does it cost who and where are the dealers
Didn’t care for the kids running in the water on the sand
It looks like the parent left them there
To many questions to be answered
$6500?! For a nylon tent strapped to a small utility trailer. Better to just buy your own cargo trailer and toss in your gear. Much cheaper.
Matthew Glander says
Check out the SylvanSport Go camping trailer made in Brevard NC. It is constructed of Aluminum and the tent is stored in the top. Set up is easy and relatively quick. Also weighs a lot less with similar load capacity.

Pros: Gets those with mobility issues off the ground. It’s true that a family-size tent and 18″ high cots would do well, too. Also, the cart is roughly the size of a truck bed so it’s versatile for other uses. Cons: Sleeps 6 comfortably? Doubt it. I’d love to see a shot of that family in the youtube video all set for sleep mode. Sardines in a tin. This seems better suited for solo travelers or couples of small statues. I can’t imagine a small family would find it practical or a restful way to sleep when camping.
