The Travel Trailer

A Travel Trailer is a bumper tow home on wheels allowing you to go without the need to stay in a hotel. Travel trailers can also be called camper trailers. The conventional travel trailer features a kitchen, bunk beds, convertible dining booth, indoor and outdoor entertainment areas, bathrooms, laundry space and just about everything you need in a house on wheels. Travel Trailers range in length from a mere eight feet to nearly 40 and are a standard six to 8.5 feet wide. It is best towed by a pickup truck due to its weight.

Here are some of the advantages of owning a Travel Trailer

Easy Separation - A Travel Trailer is a self-contained tow vehicle. When you get to your location, you can easily separate the trailer from the vehicle.  
Less Mechanical Issues - Since Travel Trailers do not contain an engine, there are less mechanical concerns.  
Easy To Service - You can drop your Travel Trailer off for service without losing your vehicle. In turn, you can also have your pickup truck serviced or repaired without having to bring your home with you.  
Less Expensive - Used Travel Trailers are available almost everywhere, and are usually somewhat inexpensive.  
Towing Options - Teardrop Trailers and other lightweight, short bumper tows can be pulled by vehicles other than trucks. Good news if you don't want to buy a new vehicle to go camping.
