Pricey camper vans seem to take all the glory these days. However, we shouldn't disregard compact trailers.
They provide all the standard features (sleeping space and a kitchen, a roof above your head) in an affordable, convenient package. They are the best choice for more casual adventurers who prefer not buying huge campers that eat up large amounts of gas and space.
Also, if you decide on a small trailer, you can do the towing using your regular car — no need for particular vehicles for camping. When you go lightweight, you can attach it to the SUV you use for commuting.
Today, we decided to focus on the best lightweight travel trailers - all under 200 lbs! Let's jump into our lightweight campers of choice and show you the best small motorhomes.
