Travel trailers are typically the lighter version of the Fifth Wheel and do not require a special hitch mounted in the bed of your truck, just a standard ball hitch. Since they are lighter, you’ll find that a lot of Travel Trailers can actually be pulled by a midsize SUV!
The key feature of the travel trailer is its well thought out design, maximizing space and efficiency while minimizing weight. While Fifth Wheels are more residential, luxury living, travel trailers are for people that want to travel the country with less weight or for those that need an RV for weekend getaways camping with the family or hunting/fishing.
Lighter means better fuel economy and less wear and tear on your vehicle but it also means cutting down on large sized appliances and being okay with a smaller fridge, less counter space and storage, etc. However, most seasoned RVers and RV Forums have found “camping hacks” or “RV hacks” to help offset this and really make the most of their Travel Trailers and improve their life on the road. So if this is a concern don’t fret, you’ll be able to make it work!
