What are the benefits of a small camper? You're most likely familiar with the phrase "bigger is better" and a great deal of the time, the saying is true. However, there are definitely situations when opting for a smaller travel trailer has its advantages. For starters, smaller models are lightweight, easier to drive, and perfect for couples. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a first-time RVer, everyone can appreciate a small towable trailer that is easier to maneuver around, though anyone could use these tips for traveling in an RV.
Your small trailer options include pop-up campers, teardrop campers, and ultralightweight trailers. You don't even need a big truck to pull some of these, with some small campers easily towed by an SUV. You can see your SUV's towing capacity with our tow guide. In addition to being lighter and easier to tow, small campers make it easier to park and back into your campsite, and it likely means lower maintenance costs too. Depending on your specific needs, downsizing can be worth the tradeoff.
Our collection of smaller travel trailers is proof that sometimes, less is indeed more. Meet with Camping World RV sales' team of experts and find the camper that checks everything off your list. Stop by one of our RV dealerships today or browse our inventory online to discover great deals on spacious living travel trailers.
