Types of Camper Trailers

This introduction will hopefully help you to better understand the different types of camper trailers available and what facilities you can expect from each. Like everything, camper trailers' quality and value for money will vary so it is worth doing some research and investigation if you're planning to buy. 

There are a few other types of campers, aside from the vintage trailer.

Compact Teardrop Camper

There are many options when it comes to small camping trailers. A off road camper will only have two wheels and be shaped as a teardrop. It can be pulled by a towbar attached to any vehicle. This is possible even for small cars. This allows for more comfortable driving. You can design your kitchen so that it is accessible from the outside of your camper.

This makes it easy to use. They are lightweight and don't cause any problems for the vehicle they are attached to. These campers can easily accommodate up to three people and have enough supplies for a week of holiday.

Pop-Up Camper

Pop-up camping is a popular option due to its low cost. These small camping trailers include a trailer frame, a hard roof and pull-out bunks. They also come in a compact box. You may have the option to fold tables or benches. Pop-up campers can be equipped with a water tank and a stove. You can attach the trailer to your vehicle to tow the camper to the site.


Things to Know When Buying a Trailer

In our previous article, we showed how you can do your homework on the actual trailer manufacturer and retailer prior to investing your time or money in visiting them. This article will show you what to look for on the trailer itself to ensure you are getting the best possible trailer to last for years.

When purchasing an enclosed trailer, you must first identify whether it is made entirely of aluminum or steel frames. Steel-framed trailers are often marketed by retailers as aluminum trailers simply because they have an aluminum skin. This is a complete lie. 

These teardrop trailers are stronger, lighter, and won't rust. They are also among the most secure and reliable pulling trailers. Aluminum trailers are generally more expensive due to higher manufacturing costs.

This is not to imply that a steel-framed trailer is a poor trailer to consider. Many trailer companies build a very high quality, strong, and great-looking steel framed trailer. I only address this topic because some retailers present steel framed trailers as all-aluminum to make a larger profit at the consumer's expense.

The manufacturer must have a decal and an identification number to prove that they are following quality manufacturing processes. Verify that the company name displayed on the trailer is legitimate with their own address, website, and corporate offices.
