The Livin’ Lite Quicksilver looks simple, but there is quite a bit of technology incorporated into the trailer. The unit is built on an all-aluminum superstructure, which contributes to the very light weight of the trailer. On close examination, you can see the quality of workmanship – the welded aluminum tubular frame construction is precise and clean – an excellent indicator of quality engineering and production.
This trailer is built to last for generations – the .40 aluminum clad exterior is finished with high grade automotive paint, and offered in a range of nine eye-catching or environmentally blended colours. The front panel has a black diamond plate rock guard, and the interior wainscoting utilizes synthetic Azdel® panels, which are mold and mildew resistant. There is an all-weather tonneau cover to protect the unit from weather during towing and storage.
One of the most attractive design elements of the fold-down camping trailer sector is the opportunity to utilize large zippered windows and screens in the pull-out bunk sections, and in the midsection of the trailer. These window components allow you to control the light, airflow, and to a certain degree the temperature of the trailer… on a cool summer night you can hear the wind rustling in the leaves, and the sounds of the forest creatures – no other RV type can provide this immersive outdoor environment.
RV enthusiasts often consider the move from a camping tent into a fold down camping trailer to be an evolutionary leap – the comfort of a full-size foam mattress on each of the bunk platforms, and the convenience of a real dinette table and chairs makes this a much more inviting way to camp – especially in rough weather.
The Quicksilver 8.0 accommodates four adults with ease, and if you convert the dinette seating to a sleeping area you can add two more adults… that adds up to a sleeping capacity of six people.
The Quicksilver 8.0 may seem to be a very basic little trailer, but there is a great deal of thought and experience integrated into this RV. For example, instead of using particle board and wood framing, as often seen in fold-down camping trailers, Livin’ Lite builds the galley and cabinetry with aluminum construction and lightweight composite countertops. The flooring is Trek® Residential freeze/crack proof linoleum, and the cushions are made with marine-grade vinyl, and the removable thermoformed storage compartments under the seats are easy to keep clean.
The RV systems in a unit of this size are selected to maximize function while minimizing space and weight, so the galley sink is outfitted with a hand pump that draws from the fresh water tank. A city water fill is provided for your convenience.
The Quicksilver 8.0 comes with a 12V fan and light package, and there are 12V and 110V outlets.
In the Campground
Hitching and unhitching the Quicksilver is a breeze, with a manual crank swivel jack on the tongue that requires very little effort, and once you have removed the trailer from the hitch ball, it is a simple task to lower the front and rear stabilizer jacks. We always travel with a set of Lynx Levellers from Tri-Lynx, and a set of wheel chocks. These come in very handy with a lightweight trailer like this one, enhancing stability especially when you park on soft ground.
The Quicksilver is pre-wired for a Zamp® Solar panel, a device that we have examined on several occasions – this would be an ideal addition for campers looking for an “off-the-grid” adventure. Livin’ Lite provides a 30 Amp power converter with 25 Amp output for conventional campsite hookups.
While a trailer of this size does not include a bathroom, you can bring along a portable toilet and stow it under the lounge seating – please consult your RV dealer to select a suitable model.
