What's Your Question?
How to Choose the Best Travel Trailer
Travel trailers are a great way to camp in comfort and style. With a variety of styles and prices, you can find the travel trailer that fits your family and budget. How do you find the right trailer that fits your needs? Here are some factors to consider.
Consider the Style of Travel Trailer
There are so many styles of travel trailers that it can be overwhelming to decide on what you want. You have several questions to consider. Can you camp with a compact teardrop trailer? Does a lightweight fiberglass trailer suit your needs? Should you opt for the style of those retro trailers? Is a simple trailer right for you or should you opt for something more luxurious? Before you start the process of buying a trailer, be sure to know what styles you want to look at and which ones are off the table.
Plan Around Your Budget
Travel trailers can range in budget from $10,000 to $150,000 and above, so it’s important to know what your budget is and to plan around it. You should be prepared with your financing sources and stick to what you can afford to pay. Know ahead of time whether you’re open to purchasing a used travel trailer or if you want to only look at new campers. Don’t try to talk yourself into spending more than you can afford.
Know What You Can Tow
One of the most important factors to consider when it comes to buying a travel trailer is the towing capacity of your vehicle. You should know the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your car or truck, which you can find in your owner’s manual. The GVWR can tell you how large a trailer you can tow, and that figure takes into account a fully loaded camper. Make sure that the hitch on your vehicle can handle the travel trailer you want to tow behind it as well.
Look at Layouts
You’ll want to think about the layout and floor plan of the travel trailer you want to purchase before you buy it. Some of the factors to consider when it comes to trailer layout is where electrical, water and waste hookups are located as well as whether the trailer has pullouts that will affect the interior layout.
Think About the Size that Fits Your Needs
When it comes to travel trailers, size does matter. You should consider the length of the trailer that you need to tow, especially if you’re new to towing large items. You’ll also need to think about how many people you’ll want to sleep in your camper. If you have a growing family, don’t settle for something smaller that you’ll outgrow soon. You’ll also want to look at how much time you’ll spend inside so that you can keep the right size holding tanks in mind.

1996 Gulf Stream - Seahawk 32ft
Watford City, North Dakota
The condition is used, I also bought it used from a co-worker. I'd like to complete the sale by cash, check, or paypal. It will have to be picked up buy the buyer if they want to move it. Lots of room in the living room thanks to the slide out. Also in those pictures that is not rust on the camper, it's an insulation coating I applied between the foam skirting and the camper to seal any holes that might let wind underneath the camper. It can be peeled off. It used to have vinyl snap on all around it but I changed to foam skirting, the vinyl was higher up than the foam so there is also coating there. I did pre-emptively remove the skirting around the hitch in case the buyer does want to move it, if not it would be easy to put it back up.
