Travel Trailers

So, you are looking for a small travel trailer that has everything you need. The truth is, there are several smaller campers that have the space you need for comfort and storage. You just need to know which ones to look at. I have the guide that will make your shopping easier and answer all the questions you have.

How Much Do Small Travel Trailers Cost?

Before I get into features, let’s discuss cost, as this is typically the number one factor travelers consider when looking for a camper or trailer. A small camper will range in price from $5,000-$45,000. The price will depend on the size as well as the brand. Airstream is the most popular and trusted brand and offers the most expensive trailer at around $40,000. If you want a brand name at a lower price, you can always check around for a used small camper too.

What Vehicles Can Tow A Small Camper?

This will depend entirely on the size of your camper and how much weight your vehicle can tow. Trailers that are under 3,000 pounds can usually be towed by mid-sized cars, minivans, or small SUVs. Larger campers that weigh more than that will require a pickup truck for towing.

Can A Car Tow A Camper?

Absolutely, small campers or trailers can be towed using a car, so long as the weight of the trailer weighs between 1200 and 3000 pounds. You also need to make sure the car has the appropriate hitch for towing.

How Much Does A Small Travel Trailer Weigh?

Small campers can weigh anywhere between 1,000 pounds and 8,000. Before you buy a camper, it is best to check the towing capacity of the vehicle you plan to use and then choose an appropriately sized camper or trailer.

The Best Small Travel Trailers With Shower And Toilet

Floor plans and amenities can differ in small trailers and campers and many are surprised at how great they can be. Even in a small space. You are here because you want something that has a shower and toilet. Some of these have only a portable cassette toilet and an outdoor shower. Some of them have options to upgrade to have a wet bath. So, now see some of the best small trailers right here for you to help make your decision-making easier.

  1. This is so helpful as I am looking for a camper for a single person when I retire! Thank you for taking the time to put this together.

    You might also include the NuCamp tear drops – Tab 320 clamshell or shower and the Tab 400 teardrop with full shower and toilet. These are a little shorter than the Little Guy Max.

  2. Also Rove UltraLite 14FD (bare bones but very affordable)…and a little larger but still smallest for it manufacturer: the plush Lance 1475 with full bath-shower, sink cabinet and toilet.
