Choosing an RV - Lightweights 

The Light Weight Trailer

Never before has there been such a wide variety of camping trailers that are specifically built as a light weight or ultralight unit.  Many different manufacturers have worked to produce towable RVs that are a good fit for today's more fuel efficient vehicles without sacrificing quality, features and room for the family.  Utilizing advanced construction techniques, special axle and suspension systems and more aerodynamic profiles, the light weight trailer models available today sacrifice little while offering more space than previously possible within a given weight range.

Light weight units are most prevalent in the travel trailer design, and one noticeable variation of this type of trailer is known as a hybrid.  The hybrid style trailer retains the rigid wall and ceiling structure and also employs folding tent-sided bunks on the front and rear (and sometimes the side) for added sleeping space, combining the best features of both a tent trailer and a lightweight model.  Some ultra light models are also available in a fifth wheel design.  Whether you're limited in towing weight or simply want the benefits of towing less overall weight, an ultra light trailer may be perfect for you and your family.
