Head Out with a Towable Camper

For those of you who have a taste for adventure, having a towable camper gives you the freedom to travel across the country, and there are many options in terms of new and used campers on eBay.

Camper types

Consider the size of camper you'd like as well as how long you plan on spending in it in a given year to figure out what your budget should be. Then, consider your choices of RV campers for sale:

  • Pop-Ups/Fold-Downs: A pop-up is relatively lightweight, so many types of vehicles are capable of towing it. These cheap used campers for sale can feel like a tent with the space they offer, and they do keep you up off the ground and protected from the elements with a lockable door.
  • Expandable trailer: With this type of trailer, the interior square footage is increased with expandable fold-outs. This can give you a roomier place to eat, sleep, or hang out.
  • Travel trailer: This term generally refers to larger campers that are similar to drivable motorhomes, complete with kitchens, full bathrooms, and living areas.
  • Fifth-wheel: If you have a truck capable of fifth-wheel towing, you can consider getting one of these trailers. They have a bi-level design because of their raised forward section.
  • Toyhauler: This product can let you travel with a camper and a mini-garage all in one. Part of the camper is converted into a garage for storing motorcycles or ATVs, and they come with ramps for convenient loading.
What features might eBay camper trailers have?

There are some campers with minimal features for a more rustic experience, and there are others that have conveniences built into them. Those features generally consist of:

  • Storage: Storage can help you maintain a tidy area, and it can be found in all types of places, ranging from under the seats to over the beds. Consider getting a bike rack in the back if you plan on riding.
  • Comfort: Ventilation fans can make a big impact on how cool your camper can be. Bathroom ventilation fans keep things fresh and drier in a moist environment, and whole-camper ventilation fans can bring in the fresh air.
  • Safety mechanisms: Having a carbon monoxide detector, smoke detector, and safety escape window can help keep you protected in case of any emergency.
  • Outdoor space: You can expand your living space into the area just outside your camper. Often, campers will come with retractable or foldable awnings to create a porch-type area outside, and some may include mounted lights on the exterior to help you enjoy the space in the evening.
