Everything you need to know about trailer tents

For many taking the step into caravanning, trailer tents are a sensible first choice. They are great as many models have separate daytime areas so really have a ‘home away from home’ feel.

Some key advantages of trailer tents are, you will be off the ground which not only is more comfortable, you won’t wake up to feel damp seeping into your sleeping bag. There is also more storage space which means less to pack in the car.

In addition, trailer tents are easy to erect and dismount, reducing the time and stress it takes at either end of the holiday. The fact they are smaller and lighter in weight than a caravan also reduces the petrol cost when towing it around.

In between holidays, trailer tents are easy to store as they are much smaller than a touring caravan. They are also very straightforward to hitch onto your car when you do decide to go away.
