Travel Trailers, the Ultimate in Luxury RVing when You Want a Daily Driver Too

I remember when there were plenty of RVs on the road. I even spent a few weeks in one, traveling from the southern U.S. to Pennsylvania. I remember loving being able to move around while we drove down the road, and I enjoyed the compactness of it. I liked small spaces, and to be able to travel in comfort was a novelty. I was used to riding in the back of an Isuzu Trooper cross-country, and while I do have fond memories of that experience, it wasn’t exactly luxurious.

Now, of course, with many people unable to afford the gas prices of an RV, let alone the price of an RV and its upkeep, there aren’t as many on the roads these days. Fortunately, there is a way to keep traveling in comfort and style without emptying the piggy bank completely. The travel trailer is a nice balance between comfort and affordability.

Also called a camper trailer or a caravan, these miniature RVs hook up to your vehicle. They can range from being hardly more than a raised tent to a cozy hotel-like room. Many people use the same routes year after year, parking in designated camping spots and greeting the same friends annually. It’s a subculture all its own, with vocabulary not used by the masses. There are people who travel from town to town, working odd jobs as they can find them (often called “workamping” as opposed to “glamping” or camping), others are retired and wish to travel, and still others just use them for vacations.

The travel trailer is a popular recreational vehicle in Canada and the U.S., as well as Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. There are different kinds according to each owner’s needs, including the standard travel trailer (like the Airstream), the hybrid travel trailer (with pop-up and hard sides), the fifth-wheel trailer (which utilizes a smaller version of a semi hitch), off-road trailers (allowing campers to traverse countryside otherwise impossible), the toy hauler (for ATVs, four-wheelers, motorbikes, etc.), and the double-decker trailer (which is only two decks once the vehicle is not in motion).

With such little space in which to travel, these trailers are often built with multi-purpose use in mind, such as the beds that are converted to seating areas during the daytime, slide-out rooms, and miniature appliances such as a washer, dryer, microwave, refrigerator, and stove. Depending on the country and the make of the model, the travel trailer may also have such items as air-conditioning and external barbecue points.

If you’re eager to try something new for a family vacation, or you’re in search of a new hobby and want to see more of the country, then you may be the perfect candidate for a travel trailer. There are several brands to choose from, whether new or vintage, and customization is available for nearly every trailer nowadays. Fitted for your convenience and made for you down to the last detail, these travel trailers will be put to plenty of use for several years to come. Travel trailers are a great way to broaden your horizons, and if you are able, purchasing or leasing one will avail you of many opportunities not able to be taken before.
