For many people, tiny is better. A growing population of Americans are opting to drive tiny cars, eat several small meals a day rather than a few big ones, and even live in tiny spaces. With that trend on the rise, it’s worth considering whether a tiny trailer or camper may be the right RV for you.
So, what’s so great about tiny trailers? Consider these top advantages:
- Mobility – You can tow a tiny camper nearly anywhere you want to go. Do you want to boondock on the banks of a secluded lake? Are you planning to live in your RV full time and travel around frequently? If so, a tiny trailer or camper could be the option you’re looking for. Along with your tow vehicle, a tiny trailer can be maneuvered into and out of some tight places that a larger RV couldn’t be. What’s more, small trailers are lightweight, helping to make travel more fuel efficient than larger RVs.
- Affordability – While it’s true that some brand new tiny trailers on the market can be on the higher end of the price range, there are many affordable new and used options available, too, if you’re on a budget. What’s more, if you’re particularly handy, you can find a vintage trailer or camper for next to nothing and slowly rehab it into a showpiece tailored to your specific wants and needs, at a price point that works for you.
- Towability – Tiny trailers are some of the easiest rigs to tow because of their lightness. That means you probably won’t need a heavy-duty truck or SUV to tow your camper around. A car or crossover vehicle could work just fine. Towing your tiny trailer with something that’s smaller itself can help you save more money on gas and maintenance.
- Customizability – Whether you want to rehab an older tiny trailer yourself or buy a new one, you’ll have plenty of options for customizing. Many manufacturers will build tiny RVs from scratch, so if you choose to go that route, you’re sure to get exactly the layout and features you want. Of course, if you rehab a tiny trailer on your own, the sky’s the limit, even if you’re on a tight budget. With a little sweat and elbow grease, you’ll be able to create a camper that suits your unique personality and needs.
