Small travel trailer recreational recommendations aren’t that different from those that are associated with larger recreational vehicles. The small travel trailer available in the modern RV inventory is so well designed that you may not feel that you have “lost” anything. Many still have the necessary bathroom and kitchen facilities as well as comfortable sleeping arrangements.
The small travel trailer will obviously sleep fewer people because there is less space. But just because there is less space doesn’t mean that the necessities and most popular amenities are cut out. It typically just means that the space is more carefully designed to maximize the opportunities for living. It also often means that the RVer will need to expend more energy in set up and clean up. The small travel trailer generally depends more heavily on slide outs and may even have additional exterior amenities (exterior mount grill, awnings, etc.)
But the most commonly cited difference between the small travel trailer and the larger recreational vehicle options is the ease of use.
The small travel trailer is much easier to store. It’s smaller. It requires less space. This generally means that it can either be stored at your residential space or that renting a storage space will be cheaper.
The small travel trailer is much easier to prepare for departure. It’s lighter and easier to maneuver. It’s easy to hitch up.
The small travel trailer is much easier to maneuver. It’s a great first time RV and it’s a great relax and enjoy the open road RV for even the most experienced veteran. It’s also lighter and will result in greater gas mileage.
The small travel trailer is also much easier to set up at the campsite. It’s smaller. It’s meant to be compact. There’s a lot packed into a little space. But it’s still a small RV and there’s only so much that needs to be done to set things up at the campground.
The small travel trailer is also much easier to clean up for storage again after the trip. It’s small. It’s much quicker to clean than larger RVs.
So don’t belittle the small travel trailer. It’s packs a big punch.
