Everybody can use a much needed vacation whether it is to get away from the routines of life or the stress of work. Unfortunately, vacations can put more stress on us because of the amount it costs to take them! For many it just isn’t reasonable to go on a vacation every month or weekend. The costs of hotels and airfare aren’t budget friendly. Owning a trailer tent can make a weekend trip much more reasonable.
Most of us live pretty close to a wilderness area of some sort whether it’s the beach or the mountains or even the desert. The possibilities are endless. On the other hand, not all of us are meant to be serious campers. We like the comforts our homes and lives offer. Tent trailers offer a nice compromise. Although they aren’t made as luxurious or as spacious as a RV they offer a nice in between.
First, they are much more affordable than a motorhome or RV. Some RV’s can be more than a home mortgage. You can get a tent trailer for a few thousand dollars or less making it much easier to fit into the budget. Ok, you might be cringing when you think about a few thousand dollars. The fact is even going on a big vacation once or twice a year can cost close to that but you will be able to enjoy this for many years to come.
Second, they are much smaller. They are designed to be compact and easy to transport. Many even are made to be stacked on their sides so you can store them easier when they are at home.
Third, they are a better option than a traditional camping tent especially if you aren’t such an outdoor enthusiast. Camping with tents is great if you love sleeping on the hard ground and waking up with condensation built up all around you. While a tent trailer is still just a tent it has a few extra perks along with it. It is raised up off the ground so you aren’t going to wake up with a rock lodged in your back. Also, because it’s up higher off the ground you don’t have to worry about accidentally pitching it where all the water runs off when it rains. You also won’t have to worry about getting a ground covering either.
Lastly, it gives you a great excuse to get away even if it is just for the weekend. Pack up a bunch of those non perishables you have in the house, grab some clothes and a few basic camping supplies and hook up the tent trailer. It is that easy. We all could use more excuses to relax and have a little fun. Enjoying the outdoors is a great way to do so.
