FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Road Warrior Sports Brings Sleek, Multi-Function Sport Trailer
to Canoecopia Paddlesports Expo
73-sq. foot, secure, weatherproof unit built for road trip adventures
APPLETON, WI – March 6, 2012 – Launched just over a month ago at the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow, Road Warrior Sports will bring the Atlas 8, a multi-function sport trailer for family adventures and epic outings, to Rutabaga’s Canoecopia paddlesports expo in Madison, Wisc. March 9-11.
Road Warrior Sports will be in booth J5 at the expo with one of the new Atlas 8 trailers on hand for consumers to view and experience in person.
The Atlas 8 (MSRP: $5,695.00) uses two compartments to organize an epic’s worth of gear in 73 cubic feet of space. Plus, the trailer is perfect for paddlers thanks to Yakima rack compatibility and an optional extended tongue that lets the Atlas 8 accommodate boats up to 19 feet long. Gas-assist shocks make accessing gear inside easy even with canoes or kayaks on top.
“Years ago I lived in South Africa and small enclosed trailers were behind every kind of vehicle imaginable to service the cargo needs of a small car culture. It was a convenience I immediately missed heading out on road trips with my family back home,” said Road Warrior Sports Founder and President Larry Brown. “With growing families, economic and environmental factors, people can’t always have a vehicle that can carry themselves and their gear comfortably. The Atlas 8 makes traveling more practical and enjoyable for everyone.”
With a resin transfer molded fiberglass body on an aluminum frame, the Atlas 8 has an empty weight of 550lbs., making it easy for anyone to move or reposition the trailer and allowing it to be towed by almost any vehicle on the road. Total cargo capacity is 1,000 lbs., for a total gross axle weight rating of 1,550 lbs.
The Atlas 8’s aerodynamic design looks at home behind any vehicle and can be color-matched to any manufacturer’s paint or wrapped in limitless custom designs from camouflage to tie dye to company branding.
A removable tongue reduces total length to 8.5 feet and the ability to be tilted upright reduces storage requirements to a footprint no larger than the average lawn mower. Wide-opening lids and removable tailgate make loading easy and versatile. Heavy-duty locks and seals keep gear protected from bad weather and intentions.
“A trailer isn’t very useful if it never leaves the garage because you are concerned about weather conditions or the security of your gear if left unattended; so we’ve created something that’s user-friendly, has tons of functionality, and looks good out on the road,” Brown said.
Road Warrior Sports is based in nearby Appleton, Wisc. For more information or to contact Road Warrior Sports directly, visit www.RoadWarriorSport.com.
