Quantum Leap introduces new line of camping trailers
http://www.rvdailyreport.com/News/tabid/56/ctl/AuthorView/mid/370/authorID/5/gjgerber.aspx

SOMERSET, Penn. -- Quantum Leap Engineered Products, LLC, today announced the introduction of their new activity support vehicle (ASV) line of innovative camping trailers designed specifically for outdoor activity-based adventurists.
"The ASV is the missing link in the RV evolutionary process that bridges the gap between free-standing tents and traditional towable RVs," said Ted Harris, president. "The ASV serves is destined to redefine the way people live and play in the great outdoors. Equally at home in a campground or off the beaten path, the ASV series embodies the design philosophy that less really is more. With a 400-pound cargo carrying capacity, it is rugged, practical, durable and affordable.
"It’s a mega-backpack for campers that can haul all kinds of gear and equipment off the road to a trailhead, riverbank or campground and then quickly converts any destination into a base camp," said Harris.
Ultra-lightweight and made from corrosion-resistant, non-wood construction materials, the ASV can withstand the environmental extremes of the great outdoors. The vehicle can set-up in less than 60 seconds with a self-deploying tenting system, and you don’t need to detach it from your tow vehicle for set-up. One person can completely handle the set-up.
For those that like to tent, the ASV provides comfortable off-the-ground sleeping and living quarters and protection from the rain.
“We design all of our products based on the guiding principles of sustainable design and utilize innovative and cutting-edge technologies such as high strength adhesives to replace conventional fasteners, screws, and staples," said Harris. "We do not rely on caulking to seal joints or make up for loose manufacturing tolerances. We are committed to integrating advanced engineering processes to ensure functional reliability and endurance. Utilizing composite materials, thermoplastics, steel and aluminum in the construction process, we intend to set a new benchmark for durability, fit and finish, and overall performance in the industry.
"Our products will never contain any wood or wood by-product that degrades over time. We intend to meet the needs and wants of the green-conscience consumer,” said Harris.
The product is available for immediate shipment anywhere in the United States with a special home delivery service. The company intends to expand its initial product offering and has two new models planned for release this fall.

RV dealers or outdoor outfitter stores interested in becoming an authorized fulfillment center are encouraged to call Harris at 814.289.1476

Over 700 pounds without camping gear is the only thing I don't like about it.

It looks like it's easy to set up.

I saw this at the Hershey RV Show last Fall. Really nice design! It's nice that you don’t need to detach it from your tow vehicle for set-up, something I wish I could do with my Fleetwood-Element-Neon. Lots of room inside and out for supplies and toys while on the road.

Anyone want to buy my Fleetwood-Element-Neon so I can get one of these?

At $5K, it's not nearly as innovative as the Sinclair Quantum Leap computer of 1984, which had a built-in networking, flat memory architecture and native 32-bit OS n ROM long before the PC or Mac did, and had a list price well below $500.

Several other trailer companies have had similar fold-over tent trailers. At least one hard body model folded to the side so it wasn't necessary to have a ludicrously long "tongue" or trailer length. Rear folding with step up is also available.

Here are two that I liked, but at approx $5K were also out of my budget.

(Costco has a version made by the same company for $3K, hat I'm considering http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11542626)

Looks kinda like the Kimberley Kamper from Australia except the Kamper folds open to the rear. Nice built in kitchen in the Kamper as well. Big bucks though.

My search skills are lame, any threads here discussing Kimberly Kampers?

I like the looks of that Jumping Jack trailer. Sort of a cross between a spartan pop up and a utility trailer. I especially like that the tent part can be removed and the trailer is then usable as a normal utility trailer.

A fairly nice review of the system is here:

Looks nice but it seems like 5k is a lot to me.
