Go Pop Up Tent Camper Trailer [6]

SylvanSport [6] was shooting for versatility when they thought up the Go Pop Up Tent Camper Trailer. This amazing piece of compact engineering functions as a trailer to pack up bikes, kayaks, motorcycles, or other toys on its aluminum frame, and it can sleep up to four people comfortably when its transformed into a camper. The biggest advantage is that this 840-pound trailer can be towed by most any vehicle with a trailer hitch.

Biolite Campstove [3]

Since its debut, the Biolite Campstove [3] has been one of our favorite gadgets for camping. This camp stove will not only cook your food and warm your coffee, but it harnesses the waste heat from its fire and turns it into electricity. The electricty stored by Biolite Campstove [8]can be used to charge everything from your iPhone to your digital camera — so don’t worry about your camera going kaput before you can capture all those new memories.

Voltaic Systems 1010 OffGrid Solar Backpack [12]

The camping and adventurer’s gear list has expanded over the past 10 years and now it seems mandatory to take along a portable solar charger. Voltaic Systems’ 1010 OffGrid Solar Backpack [12] is one way campers can now collect solar energy while hiking around the national parks. You can also purchase a flexible  solar panel that snaps on ANY backpack if you’ve already got a handy bag to carry your goods.

The Solio’s efficient solar panels combine with a high capacity battery that stores the power for versatile use later in your trip. The Solio [15] is a hybrid because it has the capability to either capture the sun’s energy or plug into a wall socket.
