Family camping trips are the perfect way to bring everyone closer together and create some great memories. Modern camper trailers have come a long way in recent years. When you’re looking to purchase the right one for your family, it’s important to make sure it has enough comfortable sleeping space for everyone. After all, you’ll have a much better time if everybody can get a good night’s sleep after all the fun family activities during the day.
A Bigger Floor Plan or Clever Space Savers?
Depending on the size of your family and the age of your kids, you may need to buy a camper trailer with a bigger floor plan to accommodate everyone comfortably. However, if you have younger children, many modern camper trailers come with some very clever space savers. Examples include a pull-out bed within the sofa and bunk beds that stack when not in use. Some even have a detachable canvas kid’s room so parents can have some peace and privacy.
Hard Floor Campers
All-terrain hard floor camper trailers are durable and comfortable, especially in wet weather. They’re also easier to clean and setup, and offer more options for sleeping on the floor. Young children can have fun camping on the floor at night with inflatable mattresses and sleeping bags, and they’ll be safe and secure when the camper is raised. There is the option to purchase a full wall and floor kit for hard and soft floor campers to secure and enclose the annexe.
Soft Floor Campers
If you have a soft floor camper trailer, you’ll enjoy extra space and have the option to add more rooms if necessary. At PMX Campers, we offer an 18’ foot tent to ensure there’s enough sleeping room for everyone. However, you’ll definitely need some extra padding if you’re sleeping on the floor, and because of their more complicated and time-consuming setup, they’re not a good option if you’re staying in a different place every night.
How Much Space Do You Really Need?
Obviously, the smaller and lighter your camper trailer is, the easier and more efficient it will be to tow. However, on a family trip, it’s not advisable to cut costs when it comes to space. During the day, everyone can get outside and over-crowding won’t be an issue, but after a long day, every member of the family needs space to stretch out and enjoy a relaxing sleep. One reason camper trailers are so popular is their ability to expand, so choose wisely and buy the right one for your needs.
