Four Key Reasons to Buy a Camper Trailer

Posted on: 30 August 2017

If you like the thought of hitting the open road, but you need a cost-effective alternative to an RV, you may want to consider a camper trailer. While they're more comfortable than a tent, they cost less than a motorhome and don't require as much space as a caravan. 

Camper trailers cost less than an RV

RVs aren't just expensive to buy; they cost a lot to maintain too. Insurance costs soon mount to thousands per year, which is a lot to pay when the vehicle isn't in continuous use. As time goes on, you'll need to address maintenance costs such as new tires, replacing carpets, new toilets and thermostat upgrades. In contrast, camper trailers require little maintenance, making them less of an ongoing financial burden.

They're small and compact

While larger caravans may require a lot of storage space and vehicles of a certain size for towing, camper trailers can fit into driveways and are small enough for most vehicles to handle. Although it may seem as though this will limit the space available for camping, you'll soon find that an expandable trailer features enough room for all the family. In addition, you can add awnings for additional living space in the evening, making it easy to relax.

You'll feel more comfortable when you're camping

Although tents are cheap and require next to no maintenance, sleeping on the floor is uncomfortable, and blow-up beds aren't always reliable. In addition, you're more likely to encounter the ill effects of adverse weather conditions, such as rain and wind. Camper trailers offer more protection against the wind, and they feature beds that are comfy to sleep on, giving you a restful night's sleep while you're on holiday. 

The customisation options are in your hands

If you find a company that customises trailers or makes them from scratch, you can craft the living conditions to your requirements. From deciding the berth number to adding in features such as mini kitchens, there's plenty of scope for perfecting your home away from home. You may even want to add in carpets and other comfortable features, which will allow you to enjoy a luxury experience.

In addition to being cost-effective and convenient, you'll find that your trailer gives you an authentic camping experience. Some work in off-road environments, which will allow you explore as easily as you do when you're using a tent. Whether you're new to camping or you're a hardened veteran, you may find that transitioning to a trailer is ideal for your next holiday. 


The Art of Camping: A Camping Blog

I love to go camping. I love bringing my rod, catching fish and cooking over a fire just like our primal ancestors. I also love staying up late, listening to music and partying around the campfire with friends. In this blog, I am going to share everything that I know about camping, and I hope that it makes your next camping journey a success. Years ago, I used to camp on my own, with friends or with my dog. Now, I have a wife and two kids, and we have been taking them on camping experiences since they were six weeks old. I hope that you share my passion for camping and that these posts inspire you!
