And, except for no overhead cupboard space, the tent trailer was very similar to a standard travel trailer
My husband and I have been looking at getting a travel trailer for some time now. We both like camping but we also like having some of the amenities of home while we camp too. We were looking at a standard, 50 foot travel trailer but were worried about cross winds and roll overs. When my husband brought up the idea of a tent trailer, at first I was against it. I didn’t see how it could be heated or cooled and I thought it would get all wet if it rained. I assumed that the sides of a tent trailer were like a regular tent. Then he said that the sides are heavy, waterproof canvas and that they absolutely do come with heaters and air conditioners. That made me curious so we went to an RV dealership and checked out their inventory of tent trailers. The display trailers were all set up and had their air conditioners running. I was impressed! It was very cool inside the tent trailer. The air conditioner worked great and the cool air did not seem to be escaping. It also had a little heater built into the wall under the refrigerator too. And, except for no overhead cupboard space, the tent trailer was very similar to a standard travel trailer. I also like how the tent trailer has a low profile so it is less likely to roll over when being towed. We are also less likely to rip the air conditioner off of the roof by going under low hanging branches or tunnels because the entire trailer compacts enough that the roof air conditioner is lower than the roof of our truck.
