So we've been camping with our popup camper lately and it's been a lot of fun. We now want to upgrade to a hard-walled travel trailer. There are lots of options but I haven't found anything that fits my basic criteria - no more than 3000lbs ready-to-go.
Now fiberglass trailers open up a whole new world to us in that sub 3000lbs category. But are there any drawbacks to owning a fiberglass vs. a standard travel trailer? We're not looking for bells and whistles because the main reason we want to upgrade to a hard-walled trailer is safety and security at night (mostly from the two legged animals) and two a little less work packing/unpacking/tear-down. So are the fiberglass trailer strong enough for us to feel safe in them? Any other drawbacks? If anything I think they're superior to the regular trailers due to the weight
, aerodynamics and the fact that fiberglass doesn't rust or rot like metal or wood.
We don't care for TV, satellites, microwave
etc. Just need something that sleeps 4, stove, sink, dinette, furnace
, a/c and optionally a small fridge
, a shower and a restroom - that's about it.
Also, I hear there's a fiberglass RV convention in OR in August, can anyone point me to that, we may consider attending it since we've never seen a fiberglass trailer in person.
