Spending the winter months making next years vacation plans? We’ve got the perfect solution if you would like to discover the best way to start making memories as an RVer. The least expensive way to get into RVing is with a towable travel trailer. They are less expensive and easier to maintain than a motorhome. You can use your current vehicle if it meets the towing requirements, reducing your initial investment.

The great advantage of a travel trailer is that it can be removed from the tow vehicle. This gives you a lot more freedom for sightseeing and running errands once you get to your destination. In addition, tow vehicles provide safety features that are usually not included in motorhomes, such as using car seats for kids.

Towing an RV trailer is a bit different than just driving a car, but with a little practice and some patience, you will get the hang of it in no time. You will be required to hitch and unhitch your trailer. You also need to be sure your vehicle is capable of safely towing the trailer.

Travel trailers range from 8 to 40 feet, weigh 1,000 to 10,000 pounds, can sleep from two to eight people and cost between $10,000 to $150,000. They come in a variety of floor plans.  Decide what’s important for you and your family and then look for the model, style, and price range that fits your needs.

Here are a few things you may want to consider when choosing the perfect RV for you and your family:

  1. What type of camping do you want to do?
  2. Do you want to park your RV or plan to travel with it?
  3. How do you plan to tow your RV?
  4. How many people do you need to accommodate?
  5. Do you have children or pets?
  6. What kind of amenities are most important to you?
  7. Should you consider new or used?
  8. What is your budget?

Once you have a good handle on your camping needs choosing your perfect RV will be much easier. Feel free to talk to one of our sales representatives at East Coast Campers and More with any questions or concerns you may have about beginning your RV travel adventures. Happy camping!
