How To Choose A Fold-Down Trailer

Prosser's | 08/04/2021

If you want to vastly improve your experience of the great outdoors, but you’re not ready to commit to a massive recreational vehicle, consider a fold-down trailer instead! While these trailers are small, they pack a lot into that space, and they’re extremely lightweight and easy to set up, making them a breeze to tow and use. Their simplicity makes them much more affordable than a standard hard-sided trailer, too! If you’re not sure whether a fold-down trailer is for you, this brief breakdown by Prosser RV here in Sturtevant should help.

People love tent camping because it allows them the experience of being right in the middle of the natural world. A traditional RV takes that experience away with its hard walls and glass windows. If you want more security and comfort, but you don’t want to sacrifice the fresh night air and the aroma of the forest, then a fold-down trailer is a great compromise.

The entire trailer is transported while folded into its flat rectangular base, then the soft canvas or vinyl sides and roof are extended at the campsite to create an airy and comfortable living space. You’ll have a cozy bed (no more sleeping on hard ground!), an exterior kitchenette and storage space for your stuff. The windows are generally a mesh material with panels to zip over them when you don’t want as much air flow.

Typical RVs can be pretty spendy due to their size. If you’re trying to pinch pennies, then those rigs might be out of your means. Fold-down trailers, though, are extremely affordable by contrast. Generally speaking, they will be less than $20,000, although you can find models that are significantly less than that!

Another financial benefit of fold-down trailers is that you likely won’t need to invest in a larger towing vehicle; most passenger vehicles can tow one, thanks to how light they are. This also helps you save at the gas pump since your fuel efficiency will be much higher when towing a fold-down trailer.
