It’s Memorial Weekend and summer is rapidly approaching! If you are beginning to plan a summer trip, like my family does, you should consider hitting the road in a Recreational Vehicle or short, RV.
There are many forms of RV’s and each one has a capability to meet the needs of any size family. Here are some models to choose from:
Conventional Travel Trailer: Smaller models can be towed by mid-size vehicles, including the family car, minivan, SUV or pickup truck equipped with a hitch. It is important to match the loaded weight of the RV to the towing capacity of the tow vehicle.
Fifth-Wheel Travel Trailer: The Fifth-Wheel Travel Trailer can have the same amenities as the Conventional Travel Trailer, but is constructed with a raised forward section that provides a spacious bi-level floor plan. These models are designed to be towed by a pickup truck equipped with a device known as a fifth-wheel hitch.
Expandable Travel Trailer: A cross between a hard-sided Travel Trailer and a Folding Camping Trailer, the Expandable Travel Trailer ends pull out to offer more sleeping room. Expandable units are lighter than the Conventional Travel Trailer and often more affordable.
Sport Utility RV (Toy Hauler): The Sport Utility RV, or SURV, is for the active family who wants to take motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs or other motorized toys on the road. Available as a motorhome or towable unit, the rear end of the SURV drops down, forming a ramp for access into a “garage” area where motorized toys can be safely stored; the living quarters are separated by a wall.
Folding Camping Trailer: Also known as pop-ups and tent trailers, Folding Camping Trailers are great for outdoor lovers who enjoy sleeping in a tent without sleeping on the ground. The Folding Camping Trailer stows away for easy, lightweight towing. With canvas sides that extend to reveal queen-sized beds, it’s easy to have a fresh-air experience with all the comforts of an RV.
Truck Camper: The Truck Camper is a portable unit designed to be loaded onto, or affixed to, the bed or chassis of a pickup truck. The slide-in units are easily loaded and unloaded from the bed of the truck, freeing the truck’s bumper to tow boats, ATVs and other trailers.
Motorhome: Type A, is the largest and is constructed entirely on a specially designed motor vehicle chassis, like a bus. Type B, are built using automotive manufactured van or panel-truck shells and are traditionally called Van Campers. Type C Motorhomes are built on an automotive van frame with a wider body section attached to the original cab section. Many Type C Motorhomes are easily recognizable by the over-the-cab area that is often an optional sleeping area.
