Jim and Robin are back on the road again in search of warmer weather. On this trip, the Berzowskis are heading towards Key West in their Honda CR-V and towing their GO! Along the way, they are stopping at SylvanSport dealers and giving them a little taste of the GO Life.
Charleston is clearly a jewel of the south. It has history, beautiful houses, great parks, a fun market place and is bicycle friendly! We stayed in Mt Pleasant. We let our GO, LEO, rest in the parking lot as we toured the area. Our first day, we drove over the bridge and down to the Battery area of Charleston. We walked along the Battery Promenade and Waterfront Park. You could see Ft Sumter in the distance and the Yorktown across the harbor. The park had beautiful fountains.
The marketplace consisted of multiple blocks of covered buildings with an abundance of crafts of all kinds. The most unique, and local to the area, were the sweetgrass baskets – some were incredible in their design complexity and hold cultural and historic significance.
There were beautiful houses, churches, and gardens as we meandered back to the Battery area. The live oak trees were just majestic!
We did a driving tour of Mt Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms, and enjoyed a really nice nature trail boardwalk at Shem Creek park around sunset.
The next morning, we road our bikes across the 2.5 mile Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge. It has a fantastic wide bike/walk lane, making it a safe experience! The first half of the ride was a challenge, with a steep uphill and a headwind against us, but it was very satisfying! We rode into Charleston a bit, but the threat of rain encouraged us to return (a much easier ride with the tailwind and a more gradual uphill).
After lunch, we drove to Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. We’d never been up close and personal with an aircraft carrier before, so getting to tour the USS Yorktown was exciting – and wow, was it huge!! We spent a couple hours there, seeing everything from the flight deck, to the bridge, including the galley, brig, engine room…you name it, we saw it! My favorite:
We walked along the outside of the USS Laffey destroyer, but did not go onboard to tour it. We did tour the USS Clamagore submarine; it was amazing!
The Charleston and Mt Pleasant areas were a wonderful stopping point, and we crossed the bridge one more time, as we headed out on our way to Florida.

Your universal trailer is still one of a kind and smart!
We are retired and need other amenities to travel with.
Is it possible you could add an enclosed patio tent with screens & privacy sides?
Would like to add an enclosed shower & toilet under this patio + room for a small stove in wet weather.
Thanks, Norm & Helen! We like to think the same of our GO owners….one of a kind & smart. 🙂 It sounds like we can definitely create exactly the camp set up you are looking for. Our GOzeebo is the perfect addition to the GO, creating a 9’x9’x8′ waterproof shelter, that converts into a big screen room, as well as an open air sun shade. Combine that with our MySpace Privacy Curtain set and you have everything you need.
You can find more info on those products here:

Thanks and look forward to welcoming you to the SylvanSport family!
