Ultra lightweight travel trailers are easy to tow behind your vehicle to get your campsite. They’ll provide you with sleeping quarters, kitchen facilities, and often bathroom facilities. However, they are not all made the same so you need to do your research before buying one.
You’ll need to take into consideration how many people will be using it, the height of the people using it, what size you can tow with your vehicle, what kind of kitchen amenities you want, if you want bathroom facilities, the ease of set up you can handle, and if you require any extra amenities like hook ups and outdoor showers.
Once you know what you need to look for in your ultra lightweight travel trailer you can compare what’s available and decide on the best one for you and your family. Here are 13 of our favorites along with their benefits and why we recommend them.
