A towable RV is one of the most economical ways to get started with camping in comfort. If you've decided an RV trailer is the best choice for you instead of a motorhome, then you'll find plenty of options when it comes to sizes and features in travel trailers. Here's a look at some of your choices.
When You Want To Start Small
If you don't have experience with towing or you have a car that can't pull a lot of weight, then a small trailer might be ideal. Some of these have a compact base with a top that folds in so they don't block your view while driving. Fold-out trailers don't have a lot of features, especially the small ones. They're somewhat similar to sleeping in a large tent except you're elevated off of the ground.
When Luxury Camping Is Important
You may love seeing new states and sleeping in nature, but you may not want to give up your creature comforts, especially if you're on a long trip. RV trailers come with about every amenity you can find in a class A motorhome. Some have a private bedroom with a king bed, roomy bathroom, and a kitchen large enough for comfortable long-term living. High-end RV trailers are made with superior construction and have seats, tables, and cabinets that look just like those you'd find at home. Having luxury surroundings may keep you from getting homesick while you're touring the country since you'll feel like you're living in a home away from home.
When You Want Extra Indoor Space
A toy hauler travel trailer could be a good choice if you want to take a four-wheeler or other large items on your trip. The front part of the trailer is a traditional camper RV and the back is more like a garage. The back has a ramp so you can load your ATV or other supplies easily. You might even prefer a toy hauler for other reasons. It can carry supplies that are too large for a traditional trailer, such as a spare king bed. You could even set up a tent in the garage area for kids or provide a place where kids and your dogs can stretch out and play on rainy days.
Normal RV trailers pack a lot of furniture and features into a small space, but the area can feel cramped. With the attached garage space in a toy hauler, you'll have an open space where you can stretch out and do what you want. However, the garage area isn't usually insulated, so you might not be able to use it as play space if it's too hot or too cold outside.Share
