I like any trailer you can setup without disconnecting it from the tow machine. Our 6.0 does that but found it has limited storage space so we had the manufacturer add the extra table out the rear that got a storage box bolted to it. This Jeep one is 90% a 6.0 Quicksilver at least from look at the photo anyway.

While the labradoodle and jeans look distinctly North American, the front plate size, tongue jack and hitch look European. If it was for US consumption, I'd think they would have paired it with a Titan. Looks interesting and light too with no hard roof.

I am surprised that they don't make more soft top campers. Something with a real door. Seems like it would be much simpler without a hard roof, lighter, no lift system.

Im with sjm9911 I like my hard roof. I sure can understand where a tent roof would be ideal particularly if you don't have the tow rating to tow anything heavier. However those tent on wheels usually don't offer many amenities and the Quicksilvers that are out there cost even more than a traditional popup. So you really have to weigh the benefits/cons carefully. If they were cheaper than a traditional popup than maybe.

Quicksilver traded plywood in for aluminum and have no wood in them at all. Are we shocked they cost more? Our 1st camper was standard camper construction and wasn't all that old, maybe 12+- years, and its plywood was showing rot. Pick your poison.
