Quicksilver 6.0 automotive tent camper - exterior, open and closed - with 2010 azure blue model

Quicksilver says the 6.0 is "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 (presumably in the fetal position..) this incredibly light camper comfortably sleeps four, while also offering an L-shaped dinette for meals and games along with a storage compartment/TV stand. Our kitchen base can replace the dinette as an option - model 6.1" - see floorplans below.

"With the 6.0 'turned' sideways, you now have a 5' vehicle pulling a 5' wide trailer - which is much easier on the gas mileage and much easier to see around, providing additional safety as you tow. We have also given the 6.0 our aerodynamic, tear-drop front end like our other trailers, as well as lengthened the unit by 6", which makes the bunk 6" longer (now 6'-6") by 60" wide, adding some nice extra sleeping space for our campers. The extra 6" of interior spaciousness really helps as well. Another added feature is a permanent fold-out step. Finally, the fact that you can open up the 6.0 QUICKSILVER and set it up while it is still attached to the tow vehicle adds a new dimension of flexibility. This will come in handy on nights when you just want to pull over and get catch some quick ZZZs, and don't want to have to unhook the camper from your vehicle."
