Rockwood camper

A travel trailer should always be parked on level ground.

Choosing a Travel Trailer for Comfort and Convenience During the Camping Experience

When people want to upgrade from tent camping to something with more shelter, they have a broad range of options. Camping in a travel trailer is one of the most comfortable ways to spend time in the great outdoors. Spacious general living areas, kitchen facilities and restful places for sleeping are included. There's almost always a bathroom that includes a tub with a handheld shower spray head.

Starting Out

Some men and women start with a pickup truck camper or a pop-up. Many of them realize this wasn't a whole lot better than a big tent because it's so crowded. It does provide better shelter when the weather is uncooperative, but they start wishing they had gone with the travel trailer right from the start. What happens when the owners of this camper want to bring a couple additional people along, and perhaps their dog? The atmosphere can get way too cozy in one of those little vehicles.

An Expandable Trailer


With an expandable version like the Rockwood Roo 233S, people have even more space because of the pop-out canvas and screens as well as the slide-out. These features can make the trailer feel considerably larger even while adding a relatively small amount of extra room. The pop-out features typically are used for extra beds or for seating. Kids like to hang out up there, reading, conversing and playing board games their parents have encouraged them to give a try.

The Upgrading Trend

Experienced RVers are familiar with how this upgrading tends to go, as they see the trends when they go to their favorite places again and again. They make casual friends at these campgrounds who currently are pitching a large tent every time they arrive. One day, they appear with a pickup truck camper or a small trailer that has tents to pop up and out. Within a year or two, they've switched to a pickup truck hauling a travel trailer. Now they're ready to enjoy the added comfort so they can have more fun camping than ever.

Concluding Thoughts

Camping can be an amazing bonding experience for a family, for a couple and even for friends. Getting away from home and the usual daily tasks and other projects helps everyone look at their lives and relationships with a clearer, more positive viewpoint. People feel calmer as they relax in the woods, even if they're in a busy campground with lots of other visitors.
