If you’re a lover of camping, you may have seen a camper trailer around. They’re becoming increasingly popular – and for good reason.
There are many things to love about camping; getting away from it all, feeling in touch with the outdoors and taking in Australia or the UK’s starry rural skies.
Camping holidays are becoming more and more popular. As a result, you can now buy gear and accessories for your every convenience.
Whether you want comfortable camping furniture, gourmet camping cookware or ambient lighting, it is now easier than ever to create a luxury camping experience.
With the advantages of extra gear, however, comes the inconvenience of transporting it to and from your campsite.
Even the most devoted campers would struggle to find something enjoyable about the tasks directly before and after camping.
Packing and unpacking your car with all your camping gear can sometimes feel like an unrewarding game of Tetris.
And you may also have concerns about the condition of your car post-trip. Overloading your car with heavy camping gear is not ideal.
Then there’s the issue of your clean, scratch-free car interiors having to withstand damp and muddy camping paraphernalia.
If these concerns sound all-too familiar, you would definitely benefit from having a camper trailer over a tent or swag.
What are the advantages of having a camper trailer?
Here are five ways in which a camper trailer could improve your camping experience:
There are many options for enhancing your camping experience, but none are as cost-efficient as camper trailers.
Unlike caravans or campervans, camper trailers cost relatively little.
Their small size when compared to caravans also means they won’t affect your fuel consumption in the same way. This makes them an incredibly affordable option for enhancing your camping holidays.
You can go off the beaten track
Camper trailers are suitable for travelling off the beaten track. T
heir durability makes them ideal for taking your gear to Australia’s – or even the UK’s – most beautiful rugged camping spots.
You may be planning a wild UK camping trip to the Brecon Beacons, Haystacks, Loch Lomond or elsewhere off the grid. In Australia, you might be headed for the Gibb River Road or Cape York.
Whatever your favourite secluded getaway, you’ll be able to take your trailer with you.
They can carry just about anything
Other than children and pets, of course, you can you carry everything you’re taking with you in your camper trailer.
It can accommodate your camp table, camp chairs, fishing gear, camp kitchenware, comfortable inflatables, lanterns, Eskys and almost anything else.
Using a camper trailer means that you never have to choose between bringing your double airbed, your camping stove, or your hiking equipment. Everything you need will be easy to transport.
You can use them as storage
Camper trailers provide excellent storage while you’re getting out to your favourite outdoor activities. Simply lock them up and leave them while you treat yourself to day of hiking, fishing, rafting, or letting your hair down at a festival.
You can even use your camper trailer as a memorable place to leave your tent and gear for the rest of the year.
Camper trailers are easy to tow
As well as being kind to your car’s suspension and interiors, camper trailers are easy to tow. They are light, and attach and detach from your vehicle with ease. This means you’ll save a bucketload when compared to caravan towing costs.
Camper trailers also serve as excellent gear buggies for transporting your camping equipment from your vehicle to your campsite. This is especially useful for large campsites, such as festival campsites, where there can be a long walk from your vehicle to your pitch.
