What is the difference between the 65048 Great Basin Trailer and the 65047 Sahara Utility Trailer?

The Sahara (tan/green tent) is a 250 denier material tent so it is a little better quality than the great basin tent (red/grey) which is 200 denier. The Great Basin requires a few more poles to set it up but has a taller ceiling.

3 out of 5 stars Well engineered, multi-use trailer
by Mistere from Lifetime Customer on 4/24/2014
Recommends it to Friends: No
Assembly was fairly easy. Very useful for cargo or camping. When camping I carry some storage containers and 2 coolers in the trails. These items much be off loaded before tent setup, adding time to the process. A popup or larger trailer would have it's own storage. On the plus side, I can transport 2 kayaks and mount my bicycle carrier on the trailer. Now, after a little over a year, two of the fiberglass support poles have splintered and the tent has sprung 4 leaks. Hopefully the heavy duty tape and tarp will give me a couple more years of use. It's important to weigh and balance the cargo, giving you a safer more comfortable ride.

5 out of 5 stars Well Built
by Reliabilityguru from Lifetime Customer on 11/24/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
My son and I put this together on a Saturday and it took approx. 10 hours to do it. I was impressed with the precision in which the trailer was manufactured because everything fit as described. The only mistake we found in the assembly manual was pertaining to the lights on the rear of the trailer. The instructions described wire placement into the lights opposite the instructions on the lights themselves. We plugged the wires in to the lights as described on the lights not the manual and everything worked. The trailer and tent seemed to be very well built and we are looking forward to camping. We did tow the trailer around to "get the feel for it" and it towed very well. A lot of thought went into the instructions as they were easy to follow and assembly was a pleasure (except for the lights).

5 out of 5 stars This Trailer Allows For Everything!
by from Lifetime Customer on 11/24/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
My family is big into rock crawling. We have been tent camping for 4 years now, but sleeping on the ground was getting old. We rented a popup camper, but it had minimal storage for tools, parts, gear etc. I have seen expedition trailers before, but they generally only sleep one or two people. I have two boys and a dog, plus me and the wife to house on our trips. This trailer allows for everything! It is the nicest self assembly kit of any kind I have ever purchased. Everything was tight, I put it together by myself in about 8 hours. The zippers on the doors are marginal at best. The tent material is not like your typical cheap tent. It is heavy. The zippers are like cheap tent zippers and I don't see them holding up to the strength of the material for a long period of time. I added a tongue box, which prevents folding down the front ramp, but it does not hinder setup. I installed a deep cycle battery, solar panels, and inverter. Next up are wheel adapters so I can fit some larger tires. A well built expedition trailer for less than four thousand dollars.

5 out of 5 stars Love It
by Smallest Farm from Lifetime Customer on 11/24/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
We recently sold our small camper because it was too much trouble for maintenance and storage. The Sahara actually gives us more space and is more comfortable. It is simple to set up and the quality is great. We set it up before we leave and put all our bedding and clothes inside on the floor of the tent and then we fold the tent down around it. Then we put a tarp over it. When we get to our destination, we just pop it up and everything is already inside the tent. It is better than a camper. Especially if you never use the kitchen inside a camper. This is simple and when not camping, it is a useful trailer for hauling everything. A brilliant idea. Also, customer service is great. We had a few defective parts and they replaced them immediately. We love it!!!

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Design
by Skip from Lifetime Customer on 11/24/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
In July we ordered the Sahara Tent Trailer. When it arrived, we immediately began putting it together. We found the instructions were easier than any we had ever seen. The parts and pieces went together exactly as specified, they fit together well, hole alignment was excellent. It took us (my wife & I) about 8 hours to complete the process. When we finished the final step by putting the tent up, we discovered that it was the best tent we have ever seen. The material is much heavier than we expected and it is very well made. We have had and still have other tents, but this one is supreme. A week later, we took the Sahara on it's inaugural camping trip. The trailer is well designed too, pulled easily and made carrying our camp gear and 2 kayaks very easy. It is the most comfortable tent we have ever had. I am 6' 2" and had no problem moving around in the tent. The sleeping bunks are well designed even for me at nearly 200 pounds. The tent attracted the attention of quite a few other campers so we had opportunities to brag on it more than once. We absolutely love our Sahara and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great camping experience. Thanks Lifetime

4 out of 5 stars Needs an Addition
by JRH77 from Lifetime Customer on 11/24/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
The rear gate .... used the most for ingress and egress needs to be wider or so at the end (left when you are standing behind the trailer) to allow more foot space for better stability when entering or leaving the tent. Maybe a removable addition with a step. Other than that ... VERY good program. We really enjoy our Sahara.
