Have you recently made the decision to purchase a mobile home? These are a great way to add another layer of mobility to your life. But before you visit RV dealerships, you should know more about the types of mobile homes available today. The most popular options are the RV, pop-up, trailer, and camper. All of these options have their strengths. Find out which one is best for you.
the recreational vehicle
RVs, also known as motorhomes, are typically the largest options available at RV dealerships and come with the most amenities. Depending on the make and model you choose, RVs can be as short as a truck or as long as 45 feet. This means that they are also a challenge to drive; Some states require a special license to operate mobile homes. Unlike the other options on this list, they are completely self-powered.
When it comes to add-ons, RVs have the most versatility. Most RVs come with a bed, a bathroom, a cooking area, and a small living room. Larger upgraded models may also come with extra beds or bedrooms, full kitchens, living areas with sofas and armchairs, and bathrooms with tubs and showers. Features like extended cabinets, flat screen TVs, kitchen islands, and Jacuzzis can also be added.
If you’re looking for all the comforts of home on the go, the RV might be the best option for you.
The pop up caravan
A popup is a specialized mobile home that can be folded into a small space and unfolded when parked as part of the popup setup. It’s much smaller and more maneuverable than an RV without sacrificing much space or comfort. Modern pop-up windows consist of a frame, a box, a hard top, removable bunks, and soft walls, which are made of vinyl or canvas.
Although unfolded popups share the same size as motorhomes, they don’t have some of the same conveniences. The new tall wall models come with space for closets and beds, but there are very few models that come with showers. Special fixtures can be purchased to provide baths. However, what it lacks in creature comforts, it makes up for in maneuverability and price. Pop-ups are much less expensive than their larger counterparts and can be towed behind a truck or SUV.
the travel trailer
A travel trailer, also called a camper or teardrop trailer, is a small, solid living space that can be attached to a vehicle. Like RVs and RVs, travel trailers can have many of the comforts of home: a bed, a kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom. Travel trailers tend to be smaller, much smaller than motor homes. They are typically less than 18 feet long and can weigh less than 700 pounds. The smaller teardrop or ultralight models can even trail behind cars or motorcycles.
The truck caravan
The RV is the smallest mobile home you’ll find on the RV dealership lot. These are made to fit in a truck bed. Ultra-small and ultra-light, they are made to meet the needs: sleeping space, stove or stove, sink and sometimes a bathroom, are stacked on top of each other to fit as much as possible in the space. Truck campers allow their inhabitants to go anywhere a normal car could go. They are popular with people on long-term job sites.
When you visit RV dealerships, your sales associate can help you choose which of these mobile homes best suits your needs, style, and budget.
