Camping Trailers – All of the Comforts of Home

Camping in the tent is excellent fun, but eventually as a result say enough is enough. I remember in the event it happened to us. We had build our tent inside a pretty campground along the Missouri river. Unfortunately the dog owner had skimped for the sized the washroom. It was an extended weekend as well as the park was full. We awoke in the morning as well as the washroom was our need. Sure enough, there were a make of eight to the as well as two for the gents. That was the morning we made the decision to purchase our first RV.

It is a daunting task to begin the search. Anyone who knows travel trailers sees that units appear in various different sizes and shapes. We soon realized we might need to get a little one even as we had an old car using a big 6 engine.

Mistake # 1. We searched and found a smaller ten foot long fiberglass unit that has got to are actually thirty years old. Now there was two old units. The car and trailer.

Mistake number 2. We traded for a fifteen foot fiberglass. It was fifteen years old in nice condition. We hit the trail for any trip cross country. It rode well pulling it with the old car. Second day trip it rained even as we drove. When we stopped the front window had leaked throughout the upholstered seats. We tried good but sometimes never find the way the water arrived.

Mistake number three. We traded for any twelve years old twenty foot European model. Too heavy for the car. Traded for any van. That was a good rig. Worked well. Then we made a decision to spend the winter in Arizona.

Mistake number 4. Traded for the new 25 footer as well as the van for the three quarter ton truck. Took it to Arizona to the winter. It worked fine for us but was a little small for few months of living.

Finally after experiencing the rig for 2 more years we realized our medical travel insurance was getting exit of hand for traveling in the USA from Canada therefore we sold everything and purchased a smaller car.

We remarked that our biggest mistake was on the very beginning. We should have got no less than 3-4 months and looked at all the trailers and also the vehicles that are needed to tow them. We should have stopped by some campgrounds and asked people who were trailer owners the things they contemplated their rigs. After all there are plenty of types available. We should also checked out motor homes.

Hindsight now leads us to believe that we may have checked out the way we were going to use the trailer. Short or ling trips. Short or long stays. Should we’ve got obtained a big rig with the tow vehicle to match. Of that there’s no question. It would have saved us a great deal of headaches and in all likelihood plenty of money too. Consider these points before you lay out for the life in a RV trailer.
