5 Lightweight Trailers That Have Everything You Need

Ultralight trailers have been popping up all over the place. In fact, the Forest River R-Pod was the top-selling small trailer in the country in 2016. The easily towable Passport ROV is another hot commodity on the market.

The idea of having to upgrade to a larger vehicle or get 12 miles to the gallon is not appealing to many camping enthusiasts who want to hit the road in a small, efficient trailer. While some travelers will need more room or bed space, these campers have all you need within a space that comes in at way under 3,000 lbs (dry weight).

1. T@B 400

The priciest trailer on this list is also one of the most widely anticipated. The T@B 400 design got its start in Europe and nüCamp recently brought it over to the U.S.

This stylish camper only comes in at 2,690 lb. and can hold up to 30 gallons of fresh water. The interior has a 58-inch wide bed and cozy seating for two. The wet bath has a cool drop-down sink and there is plenty of storage for clothes and gear. Watch a video on the T@B 400.


2. Serro Scotty S14RB

The classic Serro Scotty trailer is back with more amenities and the same retro colors. The 14-foot-long S14RB is not only a lightweight 2,230 lb. but it comes with solid hardwood cabinetry and a full-size awning.

Designed by Liberty Outdoors, this little trailer has a dry bath and a closet. The dinette does have to be converted into a bed, but the side sofa can become a nice dining area when the bed is made.

Coming in at only 2,822 lbs. the PaloMini 160RB by Palomino has a side dinette and a full wardrobe and pantry.

The bed is a little small at only 56 inches wide, but the roomy bathroom with tub makes up for that. The PaloMini also gets away from the boxy look with a curved front wall over the bed that also contains a storage area.

Coming in at only 2,350 lb. this model has pretty much the same layout as the Serro Scotty. However, it does come in a Baja edition that includes off-road tires and an enclosed underbelly.

5. Lance 1475

The Lance 1475 has what many RVers want: comfortable seating. The dinette area of the Lance is not your basic banquet, but two swiveling armchairs instead.
