Caravans and camper trailers are packed with useful and exciting features that are constantly being improved and expanded upon. It is for a reason that modern caravans are more sought after than old ones, and modern off road camper trailers are increasingly popular because of how many features can be fitted into a durable and efficiently folding space. In this article, we will explain how a few popular and useful features work.
Caravan features are based upon different design specifications to folding camping trailers, because of the shape.
Most modern caravans are fitted with an ensuite containing a toilet and usually a shower. These features are made possible through a chemical grey and black water treatment system which allows them to accumulate waste without leaving bad smells.
Slides, hinges and locking mechanisms make kitchens in caravans and camper trailers work in all kinds of interesting ways. Keeping appliances on rolling shelfs stops them from clogging up the limited bench space and keeps them secure during transit. Removable burner covers are another feature that creates extra bench space in caravans.
This feature is almost as old as the first caravans and refers to the mechanism that converts a lounging area into a bed.
Camper Trailer Features
Soft floor camping trailers revolutionised the camping scene when they first hit the market and are still extremely popular with travellers today. They are cost-effective, versatile, low weight and highly amenable to family camping holidays. More recently, hard floor camping trailers have hit the market, and their durability and toughness has made them the go-to-choice for off-road enthusiasts.
Hard Floor Camper Trailers
Hard floor camper trailers include an expanding bed section that has a hard floor which doubles as the roof of the trailer. This feature increases the comfort of the main sleeping space while also acting as a hard shell which protects the trailer contents on the road. Hardfloor campers are easier to setup than soft floor campers, and roof racks and/or solar panels are easier to mount on top of the trailer.
Expanding Internal Space
Both kinds of camper trailer are renowned for having large expanding internal spaces. Generally, soft floor campers expand to be larger than hard floor campers. However, they are usually more complicated to setup.
Side Access Kitchen
The smart lockable side access drawer kitchens are one feature of modern camper trailers that is hard to overlook. These kitchens are accessible and functional without deploying the living space of the camper, making it possible to pull over and have a hot lunch without extraneous effort.
