If you’ve been looking to get kitted out for the next big family trip, you’ve come to the right place. PMX Campers is where you can find both a wide range of camper trailers and the expertise to help you find the one that’s right for you.
One of the more common questions we get is about whether you should be looking to buy a hard floor or soft floor camper trailer. While there isn’t a wrong choice to make, there are some differences that you should consider. Read on here to find out more about what sets these two types of camper trailer apart.
Hard Floor Camper Trailers
Hard floor camper trailers are the sturdier of the two options. They feature a hard top that opens out to be used as the floor. They don’t tend to require the same kind of set-up process that you might expect with a soft floor camper trailer; and are usually rugged enough to handle just about anything you could throw at it.
Hard floor camper trailers do come with the drawback of being a larger and heavier load for your towing vehicle to bear. But if that isn’t an issue, and you’re set on quick and easy set-ups, a hard floor camper trailer might be the choice for you.
Soft Floor Camper Trailers
Soft floor camper trailers tend to be a smaller and less expensive option when it comes to camper trailers. Instead of a trailer lid that folds out, they tend to have a PVC covering that is a little closer to what you might get with a tent. Soft floor camper trailers tend to be smaller, lighter, and much easier on smaller vehicles. They also tend to be a little more spacious, as they aren’t relying on a set hard floor area to support the entire enclosure.
The one big drawback to consider is that a soft floor camper trailer tends to require a bigger set-up procedure than the hard floor option. For those looking to get up and go, or do multi-site trips across the outback, the longer set-up and pack down might turn into a bit of a chore.
How do they compare?
At PMX Campers, we’re all about getting more of our customers out there and exploring this beautiful country. We’re proud to sell both hard and soft floor camper trailers to customers that are looking for comfort and reliability while out there exploring on or off-road.
Comparing the two is all about what is important to you. If it’s space for the whole family at your favourite campsite, then it might be a soft floor camping trailer that works best. If you’re making a multi-leg trip and want the comfort without the fuss, then a hard floor camper trailer might be the option for you.
The one area that hard floor camper trailers tend to have the edge in for most of our customers, is the facilities. A hard floor camper trailer tends to feature a self-contained kitchen and other facilities that make it a little more luxurious on the longer trips out in the bush.
