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."

lite.campingJune 2015 Anyone looking to sell a used CL12BH? contact email below lite.camping@verizon.netRe: CAMP LITE small travel trailer
DeniseThis is for Jack in nN.B canada, how much are you selling it for and i live in georgetown ontarioRe: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
Alask 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: CampLite travel trailer
Mike 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: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
David AI'd like the 10'er with less dinette, but having a restroom! Re: CampLite truck camper
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?Re: The 2014 Livin Lite Quicksilver VRV 28FBD Toy Hauler RV Review
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.Re: VRV by Livin Lite
Jane Want to buy a used Quicksilver 6.0, Utah, Northern Nevada or California area. Re: Quicksilver 6.0 tent camper
evanWe are looking for a used livin lite quick silver TC 1 in good shape. contact crazykidscamping@hotmail.com Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
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.Re: VRV by Livin Lite

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.Re: Quicksilver 6.0 tent camper
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. Re: Quicksilver truck camper
DawnWould it work on a 2003 Chevrolet sportside?Re: Quicksilver truck camper
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?Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
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!Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper

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??Re: CAMP LITE small travel trailer

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.Re: CAMP LITE small travel trailer
rongreat idea about time someone thought of it.Re: Quicksilver truck camper
tulaliprosereally interested in this concept, but looking for pricing. Might have had a deal.Re: Quicksilver truck camper
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. Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
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.Re: Quicksilver motorcycle/ATV 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. Re: Quicksilver VRV cargo trailer and camper
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!Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
Fredwill 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 truck camper
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. Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
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 Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
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.Re: CampLite travel trailer
SolafaHi I want to know your prices And do you ship to Kuwait ThanksRe: CampLite travel trailer
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.Re: Quicksilver Automotive Camper
