BREVARD, N.C. – International distribution of the SylvanSport GO and GO Easy trailers continues to grow, the company recently said in a release. Following a successful first year of European partnership with UK-based Valke Outdoor in Somerset, the company announced a partnership in Latin America.
Established in 2006 and with extensive experience in the outdoor leisure market, Valke supplies outdoor products. Valke is the exclusive UK importer and distributor of the SylvanSport line of adventure camping trailers, including their flagship product – the GO.
SylvanSport’s expansion into Latin America is being handled by Motion in Lima Peru. Motion is a specialty retailer and importer, carrying brands, such as, Specialized Bicycles, Segway, and Yike Bike. Ecologically-minded and with an emphasis on bicycles and other forms of alternative transportation, Motion opened its doors in 2010, in the Miraflores district of Lima. Motion represents the fourth international dealership for SylvanSport, alongside Paddletravel (Canada), Valke Outdoors (England), and SylvanSport Europe (Germany).
Significant drivers of international interest in tiny campers include the facts that the SylvanSport GO does not require a large tow vehicle, as does a typical RV-style travel trailer, and outside of North America and Europe, there are fewer developed campgrounds that include RV-style infrastructure. Weighing in at 840lbs and with a 70lb tongue weight, the SylvanSport GO Camping Trailer and ‘GO Easy’ Adventure Trailer (275 pounds/30 pound tongue weight) can be towed by compact vehicles with a 4-cylinder engine using a standard two-inch hitch.
According to Tom Dempsey, SylvanSport’s president and design director, “International destinations for the SylvanSport GO Camping Trailer and the ‘GO Easy’ Adventure Trailer are perfect for the globally-designed products.”
