I M A G I N E …

An RV that was a TRUE (and we can’t say this strong enough..), TRUE Lightweight….

Not like the other so-called “ultra lites” or “feather lites” or even “micro lites” that we saw introduced at the recent Louisville show that weighed in at anywhere from 3,300 lbs. to 4,000 lbs.

No – we are talking about a TRUE Lightweight that weighs in at a miniscule 1,500 lbs.!! Think about that for a minute. This is a 12’ bunkhouse floorplan with a dinette that converts to a bed, allowing it to sleep four comfortably – that weighs LESS THAN HALF of the competition. This isn’t a two sleeper that you have to crawl into and sleep in the fetal position. This isn’t a model with only 5’10” interior at it’s “apex”, and is more like 4’-6” tall everywhere else. This is a true travel trailer with an interior height of 6’-5”, a full compliment of base and overhead cabinets – made of all aluminum, and loads of storage space. We are talking about a camper employing all of the latest technologies, including European-style, lightweight composite windows; fully laminated construction for extra strength; LED exterior lights; sleek diamond-plate accents – and which comes in multiple exterior colors – including camouflage for outdoorsman!

This is a stand up bunkhouse travel trailer that can be towed by some passenger cars and every minivan… and one that will be a hit with the “JEEP Nation” – home to millions of Americans who love the outdoors and the ruggedness of their JEEPs, only to find out that they can’t tow even the “lightweight” enclosed travel trailers on the market (see above) because their vehicle is only rated to tow 2,000 lbs.!

I M A G I N E …

An RV that was 98% RECYCLABLE!

Not like the “pseudo” Green campers… (whether it’s the ever.. or earth..) which offer what really in terms of being truly Green-Friendly? They have produced a trailer that requires a full size truck to pull, which burns as much gas and distributes as many toxic fumes into the atmosphere as other, traditional RVs. They have built a trailer which is what, maybe 35% or 40% recyclable??

If the definition of “Green” to the RV industry before today was replacing the thin luan backer on interior paneling and exterior fiberglass with some sort of material made of “mostly” composites…. but which still features a large steel frame with steel outriggers and steel rims and interiors that were built using 100% wood cabinets with 100% wood doors and drawers and 100% wood and steel framed furniture with glass and steel windows and steel awnings and, and, and.. you get the picture. If that is “GREEN” enough in today’s RV industry to actually associate the name of your company with the term “Green” – then we are going to have to come up with a new term for this new trailer, because that “Green” is not going to do it.

Just what do you call a travel trailer that is made ENTIRELY out of aluminum and composites? With an aluminum frame; aluminum rims; aluminum flooring; aluminum sidewalls with aluminum interior and exterior skin; aluminum roof trusses laminated with aluminum interior and exterior skin; aluminum cabinetry with aluminum framing, aluminum skin and aluminum doors; aluminum bunks; rotocast plastic dinette bases with composite lids and covers; aluminum and composite dinette table; composite countertops; etc. etc. We’ll say it again – this is an RV that is literally 98% recyclable…. How GREEN is that?

We are talking about an RV, that not only will last for decades with minimal to no deterioration. It is an RV which the grandchildren of the person who builds it can then take to their local recycler and have completely recycled! This has not only never been done before…. We're not sure it’s even been thought of….. until now.

I M A G I N E …


Bringing a Great Name back to the RV industry that carries with it the connotation of True Lightweight Camping!

Back in the 90’, there was a name and a product that carried with it the aura of true, lightweight camping. This name was emblazoned upon an innovative product line whose design-engineer earned a patent for the innovation of putting slide-outs in a tent camper. This product name was synonymous with lightweight camping and was known coast to coast – both in the U.S. and Canada. This product name was eventually purchased by a larger company which after time let it pass away into the history books. But last year, the original innovative design-engineer, Jim Krider, was able to obtain the rights to the name after it had been vacated and has now teamed up with one of the most innovative lightweight camper companies on the market today – LIVIN LITE Recreational Vehicles – to produce a NEW GENERATION of Extreme Lightweight Towables….

The lightweight trailer market is about to enter the 21st century – and not just in words only. This camper is the real deal.

A new line in the sand has been drawn for those who want to call their trailer “lightweight”.

The bar has been raised for those who want to call their RV’s “Green”.

The 2010 CAMPLITE Trailer will be showing up on dealer’s lots in May. Buckle your seatbelts – it’s a new lightweight world!    RoTi will be bringing you more information soon...

TrikerQuestions to ask: On the 2011 models, the ramp is foam board and wood covered with aluminum and does rot. There is no battery disconnect. The outdoor speakers are connected to the inside speakers and can't be separated. How dumb is that? Have they fixed these flaws?
PhylWe have a Livin Lite 2011 VRV that we love, but this last year we started seeing a bubbling and corrosive area on the hinge area of the ramp door. I've contacted our dealer we purchased from, HW Motorhomes and sent them pictures via email 8 days ago. Today I followed up with Dan White and he said he contacted Livin Lite and they told him to go to the door mfg. Challenger Door. We anticipate a favorable outcome with replacement or repair on the damaged ramp door.
Jane Want to buy a used Quicksilver 6.0, Utah, Northern Nevada or California area.
evanWe are looking for a used livin lite quick silver TC 1 in good shape. contact crazykidscamping@hotmail.com
WALTMy 2011 Livin Lite VRV is now showing damage in the queen tip out doors and ramp doors due to the wood in the doors (luan) getting wet and swelling and splitting the exterior aluminum sheeting open. It also has caused the ramp door to become soft and more flexible. So after only three years, I am having to deal with water damage to wood in a supposedly "all-aluminum" camper. Why doesn't Livin Lite disclose this information about wood in the doors? Or better yet, build the doors in the same way as the body...with aluminum frame. There is no aluminum frame in the doors...instead they have chosen luan and foam composite, which is worthless when it gets wet.
lonniewhere can I get the price an location
JackWould like to buy a used 6.0.I live in N.B. Canada
RandyI'm in Tampa, Florida. Does anyone out there have a used Quicksilver Truck camper for a full size Dodge for sale? roberts_r2@att.net
TedAny solar options?
Ron Smith I like them but where can I buy one and how about the price?
Dan Looking for a small Camplite pull behind. SW Minnesota- Used is fine. One person- wanting to roam the US. Email Dan at mrdanpeterson@hotmail.com.
GaryI live in South Bend and it's only about a 30 minute drive to Wakarusa- the home of Livin Lite. I noticed on the LL website that they offer factory tours so I went last Friday with my family. Don showed us around and it was interesting to see how the Quicksilvers are assembled. The staff seems extremely friendly and helpful. If you are ever in northern IN, make plans to stop by the LL factory at 3- no reservations needed for the factory tour. Afterwards, go about a mile down the road to the downtown section of town and stop at the Wakarusa Dime Store. They sell all kinds of candy with many of the hard to find types from bygone days. It's a true old fashioned candy store.
MearlI have a full size Dodge, don't see where Dodge is listed. Will it fit? If so where is a dealer in the Dallas TX area and price.
DawnWould it work on a 2003 Chevrolet sportside?
IdahoCamper I would love to buy the Quicksilver 8.0 or 10.0, but the closest dealer listed on Livin Lite's website is almost 300 miles from Boise. Does anyone know if I can find these trailers closer to Boise, ID?
Irish TravelerJust purchased our Livin Lite 8.1 from Prosser RV in Milwaukee last weekend and camped on the way home. It was even better than we could have imagined. Our concerns surrounding space were quickly dispelled. We ended up fitting more in the Quicksilver than our old pop up. The cabinet holds far more than you think as do both bench seats. We love the unobstructed views and simplicity of the camper. We look forward to many happy, rot-free, rust-free years of camping!
BonnieFOR SALE: Quicksilver Fold Up Truck Camper made by Livin Lite. In excellent condition, used once. I am located in Wisconsin... MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!! E-Mail: bpharo@vacuumplaters.com
TerryI'm on the verge of buying a Livin-lite 16DB and since I live in an area that sees plenty of hail I worry about how the aluminum surface will hold up. Anyone with experience? And while we're at it: what about the cold feeling of the floor in these trailers??
BudinOKI was wondering being I can't find the information on the website, how much does a Quicksilver 8.0 weigh? BudinOK@yahoo.com

GaryI purchased a QS 6.0 from Prosser RV in Oct 2012 and I'm very pleased. Mike and his staff were great to work with. I've camped out several times now and have not had any problems. I tow the 6.0 with my 4 cylinder Chrysler Sebring convertible. I am able to set up the camper and pack it up all by myself.
DouglasI own a diesel pusher,, very nice But this is very cozy and great idea... I will pass it on. Thanks

RobNote to the forum: Am I missing something, or are there no dates given in the ads/comments; nice to have for comments and often important for ads which can live forever. PS: July 28, 2012 - looking for a 6.0; have car; will travel
MichelleWe purchased a 2012 Camplite 16DB (Dry Bath) a few months ago and we're getting ready to leave for a 6-week trip across the US (with a 2yo & 5yo). Our TV is a 2006 Lexus 400h (hybrid). The trailer is just about perfect. The best addition has been 3M Command Strips. We have added the hooks & strips everywhere to add vertical storage.
rongreat idea about time someone thought of it.
tulaliprosereally interested in this concept, but looking for pricing. Might have had a deal.
Joseph V.OK,if you really want boost you sales of these units, the most helpfull thing you can do for us (your potential customers) is to let use know where your dealers are! I live in northern California. Thank you for your attention to this request.
Joe (Chiefonelung)This is my second camping season with the quicksilver 2.0. I really love it. I had a few problems with it in the beginning, but they were caused by the dealership(Boat&RV Rockwood Tn.) They were real jerks to deal with. I went thru Livin-Lite and dealt with a great guy there named Mike that resolved all my problems and never even charged me.I hope he got his money out of the dealership. I pull my 2.0 with a 2011 Ford Transit Connect 4cyl van. It doesn't affect my millage at all. Its quick to set up and easy to maneuver around at the campgrounds.I really love this little camper.

AZ CamperWe recently purchased a 718 VRV. We enjoy the unit very much, however the unit did not come with a main power switch, so when stored the unit drains the battery. The only option we have is to disconnect the battery every trip. We also have exterior speakers that are wired with the interior ones with no option to segregate them. We contacted the factory and they refused to offer any assistance. Nice unit but awful customer service. If you buy one make sure you get every little detail in writing or you will be left to resolve issues like ours on your own.
DaveWe've owned our 8.0 for two years and we like it more and more. We had a Coleman for 16 years before that, but wanted something that a small car would pull. Believe it or not, we pull our Quicksilver with a Civic. We even pulled it over the Rockies last summer,(the Civic couldn't move very fast going up the mountains)Visibility is limited because you are lower than the top so we depend on side mirrors. Point being, however, is that it is so light! This makes a difference at the campsite as well, easy to move around by hand. Cold floors easily covered with throw rugs. We have camped two years in a row in Florida and had no problems with mosquitoes, but maybe the camper who complained about them was in a more infested area. We are very happy with our purchase!
Fredwill one of these campers fit on a 1/2 ton GMC with a 5'8" bed if the tail gate is left down.
Maine GuyBought a QS 8.0 ft in 2008. Pull with a very full CRV 4 cyl with no problems. Happy with all aspects of the QS except for zippers in tent portion. We are easy on our equipment and ateast 3 zippers have broke over several camping seasons. Live the camper but QS should invest in high quality zippers. I would have been ok to pay several more hundred dollars to get good quality zippers. Too bad QS didnt spec better quality in this area.
James Grooms They look nice, Just can't find a dealer that actually stocks them within 200 miles, and they are 2000.00 above suggested retail price and that is overpriced
DixieHas anyone pulled the CL13BHB Camplite with a Hyundai Santa Fe? I want to be able to pull it in the mountains out west. Looks like the perfect set up, but I'm not sure of the combination? In put would be helpful. Thanks.
SolafaHi I want to know your prices And do you ship to Kuwait Thanks
chuckActually in response to the writer from Vermont,Sometimes pop ups are what you end up with after the RV. We recently sold our 27 foot rv, "the Global Warmer" with its' never ending upkeep,repairs, leaks and the disolving wood floors and walls, and storage rent. That thing would break just sitting there.And it's not just old rvs, the shops are filled with newer rvs getting repaired as well. We bought a 6.1 offroad camper. we can tow it with a 4 cyl wrangler and a Suzuki SX4. Cold floors can be fixed by throw rugs on foam shop mats from auto shops....main thing is, aluminum does not rot! We love this thing for 3 season camping.
Kelly SWe've had our 8.0 for 3 years now in VT and traveled through New England. We're looking down the road to a small RV (aren't popups just gateway RVs?) This has served us well; we got it because we have cars, I've towed this successfully with a Subie station wagon a Passat station wagon and eventually a Honda minivan. Mileage on the subie went from 29 to 26 (depending on my highway speed, you can forget it's there). The minivan was easier for me to tow with because I could see over the top, it fills the rear window on the cars. We've had one zipper at the top of the door unzip 1/2" and lost two snaps, the snaps were from people "helping" us take it down and just pulling on the vinyl. It's still completely usable and not a big deal. We've never had it leak, it does setup quickly, is easy to move by hand, doesn't let mosquitos in and we've had no problems with it. I do put a feather bed down over the mattress, you can get chilled through the mattress if it's cold out. The floor can also feel cold with no socks/shoes. I also installed a 12V marine inline pump, so when you call for water it pumps for you with the 12volt battery (very sweet upgrade, I suggest you do this if you have one it was $40 on amazon). Every bluegrass festival we go to I feel like some sort of magician; I can set it up myself easily and it always gets people gathered around to see what it is I have with me. I do recommend this; it's a sweet little camper; we're just going to go a little more self contained. If I decide to advertise publicly I can post more info and contact.
