If you’ve been looking at camper trailers for sale and have decided to buy one, you’re going to be faced with an important decision – whether to buy a hard or soft floor camper trailer. While it’s not always easy to choose between the two, the good news is that there’s plenty of information available on both these types of camper trailers. This blog post will provide some useful tips that will make selecting between the two much easier.
As the names suggest, hard floor camper trailers have a hard floor, while soft floor camper trailers have soft floors – but there’s a little more to it than that. It’s therefore important to learn a little about each type in order to make an informed decision.
Hard floor camper trailers come in a range of styles, including rear-fold, forward fold and double folding models. Forward fold hard floor campers are the most common of these, as they’re easy to set up and quite versatile. They represent great value for money and are a good choice for families who want to arrive at a camping ground and enjoy a quick and easy set-up.
Hard floor campers look very similar to soft floor ones, but when they’re packed down, the floor essentially becomes a roof/cover. When they’re opened and set up (similar to a soft floor model), the hard cover folds down to become a floor. This means that the ground they’re set up on needs to be fairly flat. While they do represent great value for money in terms of being a quality product that will last for years, they are more expensive to purchase outright than soft floor models. They’re also heavier than their soft floor counterparts and will cost more to tow around.
Soft floor models are the other choice when it comes to off road camper trailers. While they’re similar to hard floor models, they usually offer more living space, so they’re a good choice for families. Most soft floor models also come with the option to add extra rooms.
They’re a fair bit lighter than hard floor models, so they don’t require as much petrol to tow around. As well as being cheaper to transport, they also cost less to buy, making them a good option for those looking for camper trailers for sale on a budget.
