The following post is a guest post from the writers at Camper Trailer Titan. They specialize in reviewing folding campers, travel trailers, and camper trailers of all shapes and sizes.

If you are like many other outdoor enthusiasts out there today, the thoughts of going camping for a weekend or even the entire Summer may seem quite enticing. If you have ever gone camping with a tent, then you know how much of a pain it can be. Finding a comfortable spot is difficult to locate because most of the good spots are subject to inclement weather. Then if it rains, you end up getting wet because no matter how hard you try to waterproof the tent, you always get wet; especially if you roll over into one of the sides as the dew sets in for the night.

There is a way around having to deal with all of these issues and that is to go camper trailer camping. A camper trailer can easily be pulled behind almost any vehicle and because of it being elevated, you will not get wet if it rains. With the solid, hard roof found on most models, the rain and moisture will not get to you from the sky either.

Camper trailer camping is the best way to go about getting away for the weekend or even for the summer. You have no sticks, stakes or anchor ropes to deal with and you can even camp in the middle of a parking lot if you wish. Matter of fact; with a trailer you can go camping more often then you do now. If you feel like camping simply set up the camper in the back or front yard and do so.

They are compact, light-weight and excellent on fuel consumption. Due to their lighter weights, a camper trailer can be pulled by smaller vehicles, even regular sized cars. They are compact and tend to have low air resistance which leads to better fuel economy over larger options like RVs. On top of all of that, if you are using one for a summer vacation, you can bypass the need for paying for hotel rooms no matter where you go.

Today’s models mean that when you go camper trailer camping, you can have almost all or all of the amenities of home. This means a stove and fridge, a bathroom with a toilet and shower, a refrigerator and even electricity. Go anywhere you want to and enjoy all of the comforts of home without having to spend a lot of money in the process. Of course the more amenities, the higher the price and larger the trailer.

So the next you start contemplating a camping trip as a means of getting some much needed rest and relaxation then think about going camper trailer camping instead. It just makes sense no matter who you are because it allows you to camp anywhere that you can park the trailer for the night. And that opens up a whole world of possibilities.

For help making a decision on which trailer is for you, you can visit Camper Trailer Titan and read reviews on Folding Campers.

I would like to try popup camper camping. We used to camp out in my friends when I was a kid. Haven’t don’t that in probably 20 years.

We do a lot of tent camping in the summer and fall seasons. Never tried a popup camper, but since it offers so many features, I’d give it a try!

I have never actually used a camper for what I think of as proper camping, away from the great indoors :D. I have used a camper as a spare room when I went to stay with my mum on the farm (was actually a bit like camping but with a proper kitchen). I have actually been camping a few days before christmas here in england doing some fossil hunting near the south coast. Since we chose some very good gear we were very warm and snug! I have written an article about how to chose the right gear so that come summer or winter camping is always an option for us on a 3 day weekend. If you are interested I would love to invite you and your readers to come have a read. Camping is a different for thing for everyone, some will need the camper van to enjoy themselves and others will want to feel that they are roughing it in comfort :).

My wife and I are getting close to retirement and have been interested in traveling for a few years once we do. We saw a pop up trailor a couple of years ago and thought this would be a great way to start our retirement.

While our son was growing up we did a fair bit of camping but it was always with a tent. I don’t think we want to being going that route once we are retired.

Thanks, I will head over to Camper Trailer Titan now and see what I can learn.

Pop-ups are really great! I’m glad you are getting the word out about them. A lot of our campers are beginning to realize the benefits of having a pop-up; especially during the fall season. Than you for sharing! 🙂
