I have been thinking about this question a lot since we just made the journey from tent to trailer. Although we loved tenting, our tent was large enough, dry, and we had everything we needed to camp comfortably.
What we discovered, and what got us looking at an RV in the first place, we needed a place to keep things cold, we needed a fridge
. We could leave home with our coolers full of ice blocks, but after 4 days we couldn’t keep things cold anymore, and it was no fun looking for bags of ice to dump all over your food and get it wet. We got lucky, the Trillium
we found has a fridge
that still works great on propane
, 12volt, and 110volt.
Secondly we wanted to be able to be more mobile, it took far too long to setup and pack up, making it difficult to travel town to town, day after day. This took out our first thought, pop-up trailers – too much work. After lots of looking and lots of RV salesmen, we ended up with a 30 year old fiberglass trailer, which has everything and more than we needed, it is light
, comfortable, looks great, easy to tow, simple to maintain, and keeps our food cold as long as we need it.
We couldn't be happier (except if we had gotten it years ago).
