CLEARFIELD, Utah, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the new Lifetime Tent Trailer from Lifetime Products, Inc., homeowners and outdoor enthusiasts no longer have to choose between using their trailer to haul a tent or to haul equipment for their outdoor adventure.
The new Lifetime Tent Trailer is a 10.5' x 6.6' heavy-duty utility trailer with a 7' x 5' bed floor that converts in just minutes to house a spacious 84 square-foot camping tent that sleeps up to six people. However, unlike most tent trailers on the market, the tent for the Lifetime Tent Trailer stores in a compact 5' x 1' carrying bag weighing less than 30 lb.
"First and foremost, this is designed to be a utility trailer," explained Lifetime Products Marketing Manager Vince Spinning. "Customers shouldn't have to sacrifice cargo space to carry their tent. So, we designed a tent for our utility trailer that can be thrown in the backseat of a vehicle so the entire trailer can be used to haul ATVs, motorcycles, kayaks, and other equipment."
Ideal for everyday yard work, moving furniture, or camping and fishing trips, the single-axle Lifetime Tent Trailer can easily be pulled by a small SUV. The trailer is constructed with solid wood flooring, 40" sides for tall loads, and a heavy-duty steel frame with a durable, rust-resistant powder-coated finish. For convenience, the sides of the trailer also unfold to double as a work table.
The weather-resistant, heavy-duty polyester tent features a roomy 7' ceiling with eight large windows and screen vents for ventilation. The tent can accommodate two twin-sized and one queen-sized air mattress. The Lifetime Deluxe Tent Trailer version also includes a spare tire kit and loading ramps that double as sleeping bed extensions to fit two queen-sized mattresses. (Mattresses sold separately.)
The Lifetime Tent Trailer currently can be purchased online for under $3,000 at Costco.com and the Lifetime Store Online, and will be available on Amazon.com, Cabelas.com and in select Cabela's stores later this summer.
Established in 1986, Lifetime Products started in the owner's garage by building a better basketball system. Today, Lifetime is the world's leading manufacturer of residential basketball hoops and blow-molded polyethylene folding tables and chairs. With products sold in more than 70 countries, Lifetime's product line has expanded to also include storage sheds, yard carts, picnic tables, kayaks, and more.
