InTech Flyer Discover

We are highlighting the InTech Flyer Discover as an alternative to the traditional travel trailer with bunk beds. Our passion for InTech travel trailers – we are former owners of a InTech Sol Horizon – spills over to this unique toy hauler/pop-up trailer combo. 

The Flyer Discover is perfect for the owner looking for a solid, all-aluminum frame trailer with some creature comforts, such as the front galley kitchen, but includes ample sleeping options that do not conflict with the toy storage space. 

The Flyer offers two opposing fold-out sleeping bed areas that extend to the exterior of the trailer, much like a traditional pop-up RV. This provides sleeping for up to 4 people, but does not conflict with the internal storage space.
