The new SylvanSport Vast trailer, which looks like a run-of-the-mill camper, is actually a futuristic take on the traditional camper. Voted the number one RV for Outdoor Adventure at this year's inaugural RVX show, the Vast is a Transformers-inspired trailer that features endless amenities.
The most impressive feature is the kitchen, located inside the trailer, which slides down and out, so travelers can cook outdoors once they find a camping spot. The kitchen includes a bamboo prep area, a two-burner gas stove, a portable refrigerator and freezer, and a sink. Once the kitchen is extended, it also creates a shower area in the bathroom, which includes a convenient on-demand water heater for extra convenience, and a foldaway sink.
The kitchen and bathroom are just two of the adaptable features though. On the inside, a sliding L-shaped sofa on a track when pulled forward becomes a garage area, which can be accessed by opening the rear hatch. If the garage is empty, the couch can slide back to enlarge the living area in the trailer. The area also includes a folding table that can be extended to allow more dining space. For sleeping, the backrest folds down and converts into a queen-sized bed. There is also a roof-mounted sleeping area on a motorized lift.
The exterior of the Vast trailer features vertical racks on the driver's side that can be used as mounting points for larger cargo, like kayaks or surfboards. A storage pod at the front also includes 18 cubic feet of hidden cargo space, which slides forward to uncover two propane tanks, two batteries, and a spare tire.
Founded by Tom Dempsey in Brevard, North Carolina, in 2004, SylvanSport strives to make outdoor adventure accessible. The original mission was to create the most innovative pop-up camper in the world. Since then the company has been recognized for upholding the highest standards for quality, production, and customer service. SylvanSport is also focused on keeping their activities local by sourcing and creating jobs within 70 miles of Brevard.
The company has won a series of awards including the Men’s Journal Gear of the Year, the IDEA/Businessweek International Design Excellence Award (IDEA), the AdvantageWest Lone Eagle Award and the International Aluminum Extrusion Design Grand Prize.
SylvanSport is currently taking pre-orders for the Vast. The starting price for the trailer is $49,995.
