Livin' Lite says:  "The QUICKSILVER 10.0 was designed in response to the demand for an even lighter, more easily towed tent camper that can be towed by the smallest of cars and even some larger motorcycles! Unlike some campers in this market and weight segment that can only sleep two people this incredibly light camper comfortably sleeps six, while also offering an L-shaped dinette for meals and games along with a storage compartment/TV stand.."

Quicksilver 10.0 tent camper - towing 
Just 10' long and easy to tow!  "The QUICKSILVER was designed with today’s young families in mind - especially those with children and who drive cars and mini-vans. Unlike traditional recreational vehicles, the QUICKSILVER is light enough to be towed without having to purchase an expensive truck or large SUV! The affordable price of the QUICKSILVER allows families to get away to enjoy the great outdoors and the RV lifestyle without stretching their budget."

Just some of the construction features:  Tubular Aluminum Frame - Lightweight; Durable; will not rust away like typical steel frames; Dexter Independent Torsion Suspension - Provides the smoothest ride, best tracking and less rebound in all terrains - compared to outdated spring leaf suspensions; Inter-Locking Aluma-Plank Floor Deck - Lightweight, Durable, will not rot away, sag or have soft spots like typical plywood floor decking; Tubular Aluminum Sidewall Framing - Lightweight; Durable; will not rot away like wood; Aluminum Sidewall Exterior Skin - Lightweight; Strong, durable; offers the option of colors - vs. only white 

Opened up - and it's very easy to do - it's more than 20' long and can sleep up to six.  There's a 60"x84" bed at each end and the dinette easily turns into a bed as you can see in the pictures further down.

Livin' Lite says: "Because the founders and owners of Livin’ Lite Recreational Vehicles were campers themselves, they knew all about the need for a back to the basics, no-frills tent camper that would provide a great place to sleep while getting their family off the ground; a spot for eating or playing games; and a kitchen area for preparing meals. The QUICKSILVER also features loads of storage space, as well as being unbelievably easy to both tow and set up. Each QUICKSILVER comes with electical hook-ups and easy zip-down window shades and screens. Available options include a portable heater, a portable gas range, clip on lights and fans; privacy curtains, upgraded tires and rims and more! Everything you need to maximize your camping experience.

We show 2 pictures of the interior of the Quicksilver 10.0 below.  To the lower left of the first picture you see the storage bench that offers extra seating for guests.

Just some of the interior features: Foam Mats with Mattresses on the Bed Bases, 12V & 110V Electrical Outlets, 2 convenient plug-in 12V fan/lights that attach to ceiling bars, Hand-Pump Sink Faucet - comes with a 5-gallon water tank and city hook up, Lots of storage

The interior pictures show the marine-grade vinyl seating.  The dinette very easily turns into a bed as you can see below, but also, as Livin' Lite says: "One of the great features of the QUICKSILVER is our removable dinette bases. These lightweight rotocast plastic bases and ultra lightweight table are easily removed from the camper, providing extra seating and flexibility at your campsite. Because it is all weatherproof, you don’t have to worry about putting it back inside if it starts to rain. In fact, you can wait out the rain in the comfort of your own chairs in the camper. This flexibility is unique to the QUICKSILVER campers and provides incredible spaciousness in the interior of your camper."

      Just a couple of final points from Livin' Lite:

  • "The designers of the QUICKSILVER believe that the RV lifestyle should be available to eveyone - regardless of age or income. A full half of society drives either a car or mini-van and the QUICKSILVER is the only camper of it’s kind - able to sleep between six people comfortably - while still being able to be pulled by the family vehicle!"
  • "Camping for us is about having a great time in the outdoors. It’s about sitting around the campfire and making smores. And most importantly, it’s about quality time spent with our family. We designed the QUICKSILVER to provide everything a family needed to experience the camping lifestyle for themselves and we constructed it to last a generation - not out of plywood that rots but out of all aluminum and composites.”
  • Options include a rear deck, monogrammed rugs and privacy curtains

 We think this really is a very well thought-out camper that really does provide "loads of fun in a compact design"

Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperDeniseThis is for Jack in nN.B canada, how much are you selling it for and i live in georgetown ontario
Re: CampLite travel trailerAlask Style 828I am very interested in the CampLite 6.8C; with the racing and Snowmobile riding I do, it will allow me to have a place to sleep at the track, without giving up my trailer and truck that I already have. I am worried about what I've read about their ability to be used in a below zero environment. Has anyone used a CampLite in -20 degree weather? Is the mechanical area able to be winterized as well? CampLite is really onto something here, now let’s take it to "Bigfoot" and get us something we can afford while we play.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperMike ProsserContrary to advice from ROTI, I am using my real email address (Mike@ProsserRV.com) in this communication. We are the Real Thing. We are Livin' Lite's longest standing continuous stocking dealer. We always have six to ten Quicksilver tent campers in stock. We have the best prices in the country, and we have the best customer service in the world. Don't believe me, just ask our customers. We take nothing for granted. Please let us know how we can earn YOUR business! Posted by owner Mike Prosser.
Re: CampLite truck camperDavid AI'd like the 10'er with less dinette, but having a restroom!
Re: The 2014 Livin Lite Quicksilver VRV 28FBD Toy Hauler RV ReviewTrikerQuestions 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?
Re: VRV by Livin LitePhylWe 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.
Re: Quicksilver 6.0 tent camperJane Want to buy a used Quicksilver 6.0, Utah, Northern Nevada or California area.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperevanWe are looking for a used livin lite quick silver TC 1 in good shape. contact crazykidscamping@hotmail.com
Re: VRV by Livin LiteWALTMy 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.

Re: Quicksilver 6.0 tent camperGaryI 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.
Re: Quicksilver truck camperMearlI 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.
Re: Quicksilver truck camperDawnWould it work on a 2003 Chevrolet sportside?
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperIdahoCamper 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?
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperIrish 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!

Re: CAMP LITE small travel trailerTerryI'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??

Re: Quicksilver 6.0 tent camperGaryI 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.

Re: CAMP LITE small travel trailerMichelleWe 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.
Re: Quicksilver truck camperrongreat idea about time someone thought of it.
Re: Quicksilver truck campertulaliprosereally interested in this concept, but looking for pricing. Might have had a deal.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperJoseph 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.
Re: Quicksilver motorcycle/ATV camperJoe (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.

Re: Quicksilver VRV cargo trailer and camperAZ 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.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperDaveWe'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!
Re: Quicksilver truck camperFredwill one of these campers fit on a 1/2 ton GMC with a 5'8" bed if the tail gate is left down.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperMaine 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.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperJames 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
Re: CampLite travel trailerDixieHas 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.
Re: CampLite travel trailerSolafaHi I want to know your prices And do you ship to Kuwait Thanks
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperchuckActually 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.
Re: Quicksilver Automotive CamperKelly 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.

Re: VRV by Livin LiteLeeI don't have toys but have been looking for a small RV. I'm considering this due to the living space and I sure like the "wash out with a hose" feature. I am not a camp in one place for a week person. This looks like I could do a road trip very easily.
Re: CampLite travel trailerIODAN5-22-11 I have towed the 13CLBH with a wet bath with a 2006 jeep wrangler sport w/6sp trans for over 2500 miles so far this year and have spent over 30 nights.
