The world of RVs has never been more exciting for adventurers and explorers. With well thought-out floor plans, incredibly lightweight designs, and amazing features and amenities, the newest travel trailers are certainly something to behold. This can often leave shoppers wondering where to begin when looking for a travel trailer or searching for a rental. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list with five of the hottest travel trailers on the market. There’s something on the list for every type of traveler.

The People-Pleaser: The Jayco Jay Flight

If you’re looking for a quality trailer with a decent price tag, Jayco has some of the best options on the market. Made with quality and functionality in mind, these trailers are great for the long-term traveler as well as the weekender. The Jay Flight model became popular due to its wide range of floor plans and options. In fact, it’s so popular it has been the best-selling trailer in the nation for fifteen years. Learn more about it from this video above from Jayco.

The High Roller: The Airstream Globetrotter

This Airstream has all the bells and whistles.

Looking for luxury? You are sure to love the Airstream Globetrotter. Though the exterior is unassuming with the classic retro design, this wonderfully plush trailer was made for royalty. From memory foam mattresses to the highest-quality flooring, Airstream did not cut any corners when designing this trailer. This trailer is truly luxury on wheels, and perfect for those who love to be pampered no matter where they roam.

The Easy Drive: Forest River R-Pod

This Forest River R-Pod would make for a great basecamp in Austin, TX.

Forest River really knows what they are doing when it comes to making highly functional trailers with reasonable price tags. The R-Pod is no exception. This adorable and colorful teardrop-shaped camper is ideal for those who are looking for a lightweight trailer with all of the features provided by a larger RV.

R-Pods feature a variety of floor plans and options, including a super-cool dome tent attachment that essentially doubles the living space offered by the rig. With all of the available options, you are sure to get everything you want (and nothing you don’t) in a tiny package that is easy to take from one place to the next.

The Unique Design: Camp365

Despite all of the incredible, innovative trailers put out by the newer companies in recent years, the market continues to grow. This means there are plenty of brand-new manufacturers who are putting out all-new designs. Many of these designs are absolutely brilliant, and are proving quite successful even in their early years.

You’re probably familiar with a pop-up camper, but Camp365 has introduced something new to the game: the fold-out camper. It’s lightweight and compact design allows it to go off-road where no other campers can go. One of the most unique features is the adjustable axel. This allows you to narrow the axel width to only 4 feet, making it easier to tow when you go off the beaten path. The camper can be set up in less than ten minutes and can sleep up to six people. Check it out in the video from Camp365 above!

The Newbie: Safari Condo Alto

Trailer manufacturers are learning how maximize every square inch of the trailers they produce. This means that today’s small trailers can be just as functional as large ones. The Safari Condo Alto is another amazing line that has really exploded in popularity over the last few years. The trailers are made with incredibly lightweight materials, and thanks to their teardrop trailer design, they are impossibly easy to tow. In fact, they can even be towed by small cars.

However, this trailer isn’t your typical teardrop trailer. The roof of this particular trailer raises up with the push of a button to allow enough headroom for even the tallest members of your family, making the Alto a rather comfortable living space despite its portability. The modern interior design also ensures that you travel in style, no matter where you go!

Before You Buy

If you’re in the market for a travel trailer of your own, we hope this article sparked some ideas. Be sure to rent first before you buy to find the perfect rig for your life. Renting will help you get an idea of what you value in a trailer and what features you need. You may discover that you love a trailer that you would have never even glanced at in a dealership. It’s the perfect way to test out your tastes before making the jump on your own.
