Best Trailers for Camping & Road Tripping


Best Trailers for Camping & Road Tripping – Traveling doesn’t mean having to step foot in a frenzied airport. In fact, there’s never been a better time to go camping.

With the right travel trailer, you can easily leave the city behind without having to deal with anyone other than your nearest and dearest.

Today’s featured-packed caravans are nothing like those you rode in as a kid, either.

Not only do they look good, but they’re packed with enough luxury features that you’ll feel right at home, no matter where you are.

We’re also at the point where there’s a trailer for practically every kind of camper, regardless of what vehicle they drive.

If you’re the kind of person who likes the classics, there are multiple aluminum-sided Airstream and Bowlus models to choose from.

There are also caravans you can take off-road with your 4×4 and ultra-light and compact models you can tow with an EV.

Some can even be turned into a mobile office if you want to mix work and play.

Included are travel trailers that allow you embrace the road in about any way you can imagine.


Best Trailers for Camping & Road Tripping – Living Vehicle HD24

If you want a better understanding of how far travel trailers have come over the decades, just look at the Living Vehicle lineup.

The Santa Barbara-based company’s boxy trailers are basically mini apartments you can take with you on the road.

The new HD24 is far from the company’s biggest offering, but comes with all the amenities you could need at the campground—and then some.

The all-electric model, which starts at $299,995, may measure only 24 feet, but its minimalist interior still has more than enough for a bedroom, kitchen, entertainment area, and a bathroom with a dedicated shower.

One particularly clutch feature is a five-by-eight-foot multi-purpose space that can be used as an office, guest room, or laundry room.

If that wasn’t enough, the top-of-the-line Pro variant has a solar-assisted power system that can keep the trailer running for up to a month off the grid.


Best for Luxury Lovers: Bowlus Endless Highways Performance Edition

It may not be the most famous shiny caravan maker—that would be Airstream—but Bowlus is the company that gave us the first riveted travel trailer.

The company, which was revived in 2014, knows not to mess with a good thing, so its well-regarded trailers—like our favorite, the Endless Highways Performance Edition—look just like those it produced in the 1930s, only bigger and with better materials (think: alclad aluminum for the exterior and birchwood for the interior).

Despite its classic look, the $225,000 trailer has all the conveniences you expect in 2022, including heat and air-conditioning systems, a WiFi modem and plenty of outlets for charging all your smart devices.

Best of all, though, might be a lithium iron phosphate that gives you the ability to live off the grid for two peaceful weeks.

If you’re an animal lover, there’s also the Terra Firma, which features a bunch of Fido-friendly features like a built-in food bowl, pet bed and remote temperature control system.


Best Trailers for Camping & Road Tripping Airstream Globetrotter

One brand leaps to mind when most of us think about travel trailers—Airstream. Its iconic aluminum-sided caravans have been instrumental in popularizing road trips and camping in the US for decades.

One need only look at the company’s Globetrotter model to see why: In addition to looking beautiful, the silver-covered caravan is packed with creature comforts to keep you traveling comfortably.

It’s not the brand’s largest model—that would be the flagship Classic—but it’s available with one of six different floor plans, each of which has room for a spacious entertainment area (that can sleep up to four adults).

Inside you’ll find a full-featured kitchen, half-bathroom, shower and sizable bedroom with either a queen-sized bed or two twins.

As you would expect from Airstream, the amenities are top-rate, too, like Franke faucets in the kitchen and bathroom, stainless steel appliances, Quietstream climate control system and multiple LG LED TVs.

The Globetrotter starts at $120,000. If it doesn’t fit the bill, the brand has plenty of other models to choose from, including collaboration editions like the extra-homey Pottery Barn Edition or their ultra-rare Supreme edition.


W2 Romotow T8

Good things come to those who wait. More than a decade after it was first announced, the Romotow T8 is finally available to order.

The 30.5-foot caravan, which was designed by New Zealand-based architecture and design firm W2, has two main components—a fixed chassis and a smaller living space that fits just inside of it.

When the $268,500 trailer is parked, the cabin slides out at the touch of a button and can be rotated 90 degrees like a swiveling USB stick.

When rotated like this, the hydraulic-powered chassis can then be used as a patio.

While this unique design may be the vehicle’s main selling point, its interior cabin comes with all the features you need and has enough room for six adults.

Special Features: 
Unique rotating design is unlike anything else currently on the trailer market.
The living area is large enough to sleep up to six adults.
Hydraulic patio comes with an integrated deck set.


Best Trailers for Camping & Road Tripping Eriba Touring 820

Are you looking for an aluminum-sided trailer that looks like more than just another Airstream or Bowlus’s rip-off?

If so, the Eriba Touring 820 might fit the bill.

The company’s top-of-the-line caravan updates the classic silver bullet look with a retro-futuristic shape and details.

Even more impressive, though, is the 27-foot-trailer’s interior.

The company has packed it full of luxury amenities like a sizable, leather-covered lounge area (that can be converted into a bed), customizable mood lighting and a surprisingly fashionable bathroom.

The true highlight, though, is a bedroom with a large panoramic window that offers up a gorgeous views of your surroundings.

That’s good, too, since you might not actually want to leave the $88,500 trailer.

Special Features:
—The kitchen has a mini wine cellar for keeping your best bottles at the ready.
—The leather-upholstered entertainment area can be converted into an additional sleeping area at night.
—Adjustable mood lighting will help you feel at home no matter where you are.


Best for EV Owners: Pebble Flow

There are plenty of EV-friendly travel trailers on the market at this point, but none are nicer to an electric powertrain than the Pebble Flow, which starts at $109,000.

The futuristic vehicle is available with an optional propulsion that includes two electric motors—one situated on each wheel—to help make sure its 6,200-pound weight isn’t eating up all your battery-powered vehicle’s range.

That’s far from the Flow’s only forward-thinking feature though.

The trailer also comes with an “Instacamp” system that can be used to park the vehicle and set up camp (which includes leveling out the vehicle, deploying its staircase, and turning on the lights).

The unique feature can also be triggered remotely via Pebble’s smartphone app.

Special Features: 
—An optional propulsion system means it can even be towed by EVs.
—Unique “Instacamp” system allows you to park the vehicle remotely via the company’s smartphone app.
— Solar-assisted battery pack produces enough power for a week of off-the-grid living.
