The Swiss Army Knife of Pop-up Mini Cooper Camper Trailers
Every RVer has a different camping style. Some will sacrifice fuel economy if there’s more room to stretch out in a large bed, while others don’t mind surrendering living space for lower gas costs. Each model year, manufacturers add more designs for us campers to choose from. One camper that might work particularly well for Mini enthusiasts is the Sylvan Sport Mini Cooper camper.
Although it’s made for any small vehicle, the Sylvan Sport’s pop up Go trailer is perfect for Mini Cooper cars. The Go trailer is like a backpack on wheels, with a Swiss Army knife-style array of features packed into a tiny, modular container. Its features are just right for backroads enthusiasts who want the airy feel of tent camping without the sleepless nights of snoozing on hard, uneven terrain.
Mini Coopers can tow this pop-up trailer.
The Go trailer weights just 840 pounds and features a frame made of custom aluminum extrusions that have been tig-welded and powder coated. A Kelty lightweight tent keeps campers warm and dry. Made in Brevard, North Carolina, the Go trailer starts at $8,495 and features:
- 2 Bed/Table Panels – Allows up to six different interior configurations
- 4 Self inflating mattresses – Go sleeps up to four comfortably on a King-and-a-half sized bed
- Awning Kit – adds 80’ of outdoor living space
- Spare Tire Kit – Mounted securely underneath the Control-tilt Deck
- Control-tilt Deck – Allows for ramp free loading of motorcycles, lawn mowers, ATVs and more
Extra options like a solar power system, cooking stove and outdoor shower offer even more flexibility for Mini Cooper adventurers.
This trailer is the Swiss Army knife of pop-up campers.

Mini Tear Makes Custom Teardrop Campers Perfect For Mini Cooper Lovers
Mini Tear trailers are lovingly crafted by designer Kurt Bowden. They’re custom teardrop camper trailers for Mini Cooper owners who travel in style.
These teardrop trailers are fabricated by Bowden in his Northern California shop. Made with exotic hardwoods for a cozy and stylish feel, each trailer’s exterior is perfectly matched to each Mini Cooper car that will tow it. The 4′ x 8′ teardrop shaped body design is the foundation for a custom color scheme, fenders, wheels and cabinetry that’s molded to reflect the car’s stylistic attributes.
Each Mini Cooper teardrop trailer is hand crafted.
Sure, you’ll find cheaper teardrop trailers, but nobody customizes them for Mini Coopers like Mini Tears. With a $25,000 base price, these custom teardrop camping trailers aren’t cheap, but if you decide to buy at least you know yours will be a one-of-a-kind model that’s made expressly for your Mini Cooper.
