Who prefers lightweight travel trailers in today’s RV industry where Class A’s and Fifth Wheels and even some of the smaller RVs offer all the conveniences of home? Does anyone still prefer the lightweight travel trailers or are they a thing of the past? Would it surprise you to discover that smaller, compact travel trailers are among one of the most popular of the RV types currently available?
Lightweight travel trailers are prized for their unique ability to make things easier in several ways.
The RVer who wants to make a really quick trip, casual trip might not want to pack up and rev up his big Class A. Some Class A and/or fifth wheel owners also own lightweight travel trailers. They love their large, comfortable RV, but they also truly appreciate the smaller size and ease of maneuverability offered by their small RV option.
The use of the lightweight travel trailer doesn't just decrease the amount of fuel required for a trip in comparison to some of the larger RVs…it drastically decreases it. The travel trailer isn’t only smaller, but it also requires a much smaller tow vehicle in comparison to larger RVs and larger towables.
Lightweight RVs are also preferable for many who are attempting to get away from the campgrounds and settle directly into the woods or the desert. The small towable travel trailers are easily worked into the landscape in comparison to larger RVs that are often very difficult to manage off road and/or out of an organized/official campground.
Then there is the issue of storage. One of the main complaints about ownership of recreational vehicles is that you have to consider storage and there isn’t always a convenient solution. With the lightweight travel trailers, there is almost always a convenient solution. It’s much easier to find appropriate storage opportunities with the smaller towable RVs than when attempting to find indoor or even outdoor storage for some of the larger RVs. It’s greatly appreciated when the RV can simply be pulled into a side yard or a full size garage.
