Types of RVs: Travel Trailers

Travel Trailers are a popular choice among RVers because of the wide variety of floor plans available. Whether it’s for two people or a family of eight you can find a model that will suit your needs. As with other towables a travel trailer can be disconnected and set-up when you arrive at your destination. This allows you the benefit of using the tow vehicle to make a trip to the store, or to go sight-seeing.

Travel trailers range in size from 15 to 37 feet and offer all the comforts of home. Most travel trailer manufacturers offer what I refer to as entry level models, mid-line models and high- end models. Think of it in terms like a Chevrolet, a Buick or a Cadillac. With today’s lighter weight tow vehicles almost all RV manufacturers are offering lightweight and ultra-lightweight versions too. Other types of travel trailers include hybrid trailers and toy hauler models.

Construction techniques vary from wood frame with aluminum siding to welded aluminum frame with fiberglass siding. Many travel trailers offer slide-outs, designed to provide more living space inside an RV. You press a button and the slide-out extends outward giving you additional living space inside. It’s not uncommon to see units with multiple slide-out sections in the living room, kitchen and bedroom areas.

Travel trailers like most other RVs offer cooking facilities, dining areas, living rooms, bathrooms and sleeping arrangements. Travel trailers can sleep up to ten people, depending on the model, and prices range from $15,000 to over $60,000.

Travel Trailer Pros

1) Good selection of floor plans & sizes

2) At the campground you have a vehicle to use for transportation

3) More security & protection than a pop-up

4) Doubles as a guest house

Travel Trailer Cons

1) Hitching & unhitching

2) Requires specialized tow vehicle

3) No access to amenities while in route

4) Requires towing & backing skills

Happy RV Learning,
