Renting a Camping Trailer with RVshare
While researching all the different styles of RVs available, you’ve probably come across the words “camping trailer” a lot. If you’ve noticed, the kinds of units associated with the phrase vary in size and features, but there is one prominent feature that is consistent across the board. They’re all units that are non-motorized, or in other words, require a vehicle to tow them.
Though it may seem a little counterintuitive to travel with an RV that needs a whole other vehicle to move it, the truth is that the camping trailer family has some of the best options for RVers out there. With the freedom they provide, efficient usage of space, and relatively low cost, it’s no wonder you’re intending to rent a camping trailer.
We’re going to look at some of the units included in the family, the benefits, and how you can save hundreds of dollars on the next camping trailer you rent.
The Camping Trailer Family
Camping trailers come in all shapes, sizes and brands. The three main kinds we’re going to mention are pop-up trailers, travel trailers, and fifth wheels.
These are small units that can be collapsed for easy transport. Typically, they run from about 8 to 16 feet in length and weigh about 700 pounds. In other words, they don’t require a huge vehicle to haul them around. When fully set up, they basically triple in overall size to produce a comfortable sleeping area for four to eight people.
Many include refrigerators, water heaters, and a skylight vent. Some of the fancier ones can include things like a shower, toilet, and a slide out section for more space.
Pop-ups are probably best for smaller families who’re just planning on camping for a few days at a time.
Next are the travel trailers, which are units that need to be towed with a bigger vehicle and provide a comfortable place for travelers to sleep. For the most part, they can be considered a step up from pop-ups. They range from basic units that are really just meant to provide a safe place to sleep, to a little more luxurious and closer to a small home. The latter can feature cabinetry and come with microwaves, sinks, cooktops, showers, and comfy living areas.
Even with the added luxury, they’re still considered to be one of the more affordable RV units. Thinking of renting this style of camping trailer? Well, these are ideal for the family who wants a little more luxury, for just a little more money.
The final unit in the camping trailer family we’ll look at are the fifth wheels. These are the largest of the three units and also have the most options in terms of luxury. Fifth wheels are mostly popular with seasoned RVing vets. They’re designed to be hitched to the bed of a heavier duty vehicle and have a compartment that extends over part of the towing vehicle.
Fifth wheels are actually said to be safer than other RVs because of the way they’re designed to hitch. Because part of the RV extends over the tow vehicle, it actually reduces the overall length of the travel package. Also, on slippery roads, they can help the tow vehicle stay planted on the road.
Fifth wheels provide an ample amount of space for living and sleeping inside. They have some luxuries available that even some homes don’t have. For example, maple cabinets, decorative backsplashes in the kitchen, crown molding, surround sound TVs, and even fireplaces!
This class of RV is generally geared towards veterans and families who want to camp in style while making sure safety is a priority.
Overall, even though camping trailers come in all different shapes, sizes, and with different features, they’ve all got one common goal; to provide a fun and comfortable experience for vacationers everywhere. All of these RVs are safety focused, they provide the freedom of being able to unhitch camp, then drive around freely, and are fuel and cost efficient. Renting camping trailers makes so much sense when weighing pros and cons.
