Your First Folding Camper
If you and your family are new to the camping scene, looking into buying a Folding Camper may be the best option for you. They are the perfect starter trailers.
When you first see a folding trailer when it is closed, it looks like a box on wheels. When it is opened, the front, back, and occasionally the sides open as well.
As you are looking at the different Folding Camper options available to you, the main thing you should consider is the towing capacity of the vehicle you will be using. This can greatly increase of even decrease your choices.
Keep in mind that you can stow between 200-300 pounds of luggage, food, and whatever else you may decide to bring inside the camper. This amount can change according to each camper but it will roughly stay in that range.
If you get a chance to speak with a seasoned camper with years of experience under his belt, you may notice that they tend to put a lot of emphasis on the size of the tires. The larger the tires are, the better. Just as a racecar will have specialized tires depending on the race, the tires on your camper will be just as specialized. They are designed to carry large loads and work on diverse types of road. The most important thing that they are designed for though, is your safety. So always pay close attention to the tires, especially if you are buying used. Remember that you will want to keep the tires in the 65 Psi. range at all times.
Another benefit to a folding trailer, also known as a pop-up trailer, is the fact that they are considerably less expensive that other trailers, while still being able to accommodate a larger family. Companies such as Fleetwood and Raclet offer exceptional prices.
Another excellent company you may what to look into is the Coleman camping trailers company. With over 40 years of experience they know how to give you an excellent Folding Camper with out taking a large bite out of your wallet.
Something else to keep in mind when considering investing in a Folding Camper is that when it rains, there may be some frustration. On most folding campers, the sides are usually canvas. So there may be a certain amount of discomfort in wet weather. Granted there are screens that can be zipped up just like in a tent, but this then restricts the air flow, hence the discomfort.
Be sure though that your family will never regret investing in a Folding Camper. Especially when your children are at a young age, your future camping trips will become a cherished memory that they will carry with them as they get older.
