We are Livin’ Lite Quicksilver owners! We picked up a pop up tent camper

After spending about 3-4 months searching for a pop up camper we finally found what we were looking for and it checked all the boxes! We bought a Livin Lite Quicksilver 10.0 with offroad package, LP propane furnace/stove, and rear cargo platform. It even has surge breaks and came with the awning brand new!

Bonus! Every Livin’ Lite Quicksilver owner should own this button snap tool: Top-Snapper Canvas Snap Tool

I had to drive 7 hours each way to buy it and what an adventure that was. Well worth the trip and we’re excited to get our family off the ground. As I mentioned in my previous post “I really want a Livin’ Lite Quicksilver Pop Up Tent Camper” we wanted something lightweight, simple, strong, and spacious. Tent camping is great, but sometimes becomes a chore for our family of four plus dog! This camper should allow us to camp longer and in colder weather.

Meet Ladybug, our new-to-us popup camper!

The advantage of these campers is they are made of an aluminum frame so there is no wood to rot and they fold out like a boat awning rather than having a heavy lift mechanism in standard popup trailers (more prone to breaking).

We call her Ladybug, and here are a few features that we’re excited about:

  • Lightweight — just over 1,300 pounds
  • Has propane furnace/heater that uses electricity for the fan blower
  • Propane stove inside (just to be used for boiling water on rainy days)
  • Offroad package with large all terrain tires, 3″ lift, and a beefier axle
  • 2 queen beds, dinette transforms into full bed, plenty of space
  • Sink that runs off campsite hookups or your own water source
  • Surge brakes
  • Rear Cargo platform
  • Plenty of cabinet space and storage areas

Camping trip in Kernville

We took it out last week for a quick two-night trip to the Kern River. This trip was just meant for testing things out and working out whatever bugs we had. You can’t get the full experience setting up in the driveway.

Everything worked out good on this trip and we got a feel for our new camper. The sink and awning were my two biggest concerns, along with battery power and furnace. My goal is to be able to comfortably enjoy an off-grid camping trip with our popup tent trailer utilizing the furnace, sink, lights, all running off battery and solar power. We had shore power and water on this short trip, but we tested one night/day without both of those amenities hooked up.

Many trips are planned in the coming months and I’ll be posting updates and making a section specific to these Livin Lite Quicksilver campers. Huge thanks to the Livin Lite Quicksilver Facebook Group for all the help and tips with these unique trailers.

Happy camping!

  1. Came across your post and just wanted to share that we had a 10.0 and absolutely loved it for our family of 4 and 2 dogs. The nostalgia that hit me when reading this and seeing your pics was priceless. We had an older model with A/C and it was used A LOT. Our kids are grown now so we no longer have the Quicksilver, but the two of us still camp in a two-person ultra light square drop camper. Hope you’re still making memories and enjoying your camper!

    1. Hi Courtney! Thanks for commenting. We actually just got back from a 4 day trip to Sierras and our quicksilver “Ladybug” did great! We had an issue with the sink not wanting to pump so I just ordered a battery operated sink. I mentioned to the kids that might be selling it to get a hard sided trailer, and they nearly broke down and started crying ?. For now we will be keeping this because it’s so light and easy to maneuver at the campsite. We to turn it and face it towards the lake instead of sideways like all the other campers had to do. Lots of great memories were made. Glad I was able to bring back some nostalgia for you. Sounds like your new camper is perfect for the two of you now. I have a trip report coming up with photos. Stay tuned!
