You'll be ready to make an informed buying decision and hit the open road in no time!
Best Travel Trailers
Travel trailers are the most common type of RV. They are the most affordable and come in smaller sizes, capable of being hauled by almost any vehicle with a towing capacity. Travel trailers are also the easiest kind of RV for manufacturers – and RV aficionados alike - to build.
Bigfoot Industries is a Canadian RV manufacturer that builds trailers with a solid two-piece fibreglass exterior. They are relatively short, ranging from 17 to 25 feet, and can be towed by half-ton pickups. These guys are perfect start-up trailers!
If you want something versatile, KZ is a great option to look at. KZ’s three main models have something for every type of camper. From the ultra-lightweight Sportsmen Classic SE to the destination-style Sportsmen, you can find a model that suits your needs. KZ's goal is to take the work out of camping so you can kick back, relax, and have some fun while out in the great outdoors.
Motorhomes are perfect for being your literal home away from home, equipped with all the essential amenities you need like a bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom - all on wheels! Motorhomes are usually manufactured first as a bare chassis (nothing more than a powertrain). On top of this bare chassis, coach manufacturers build their version of a house on wheels - everything from the floor, roof, all four walls, and interior finishings.
Coachmen has several chassis options. The RV brand offers choices that include chassis from the F-450 Ford, the 320BH Chevrolet, the 4500 Chevrolet, the 210RS with Ford V-10. You can custom order many iterations with various slide-out configurations for maximum space.
The Safari Condo line consists of 15 different Class B models on three different chassis, providing a range of options to suit your outdoor lifestyle. One model worth considering is the MX offering 88 cubic feet of storage, an awning, and 1500-watt inverter.
Best Fifth Wheels
Fifth-wheel trailers are very popular with people who live in their RVs for an extended period. With their wide-open living spaces (including high ceiling height) and comfortable layouts, it's no wonder they are popular.
The Coachmen Chaparral is the most recognizable model and has been Coachmen's flagship fifth-wheel for over a decade. The mid-profile is designed from the inside out, giving travellers roomy bedroom suites and residential features that will provide you with a home-like feel.
The KZ’s Durango Gold fifth wheel is also perfect for full-timers. With residential furniture, a chef’s kitchen, multiple slide-outs, washer/dryer prep, king-sized beds, a walk-in closet, and a residential shower, you’ll have everything you need if you plan to live off the grid for a little while.
