Trailer tent camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors. The fact that they are designed to be easy to use makes them a very popular choice with thousands of campers. Putting up a tent can take quite a bit of time. You have to unfold the tent, organise each part, put together all the support poles, and then secure the side panels, front and back panels, and finally peg the whole structure down. If the weather conditions are bad this can really slow you down, and the wind is no friend of campers.

A trailer tent has the advantage of just unfolding from the trailer, and with a few small steps you have a fully working tent. Most come with the poles already attached so there is a lot less time and hassle involved. In under 10 minutes you can be protected from the weather, and more importantly, have all your belongings protected as well. The more advanced trailers even have power assisted lifts that will erect your tent with the press of a button. This is a very useful invention for older people, who may lack the strength the haul heavy things around.

Once erected you can then get to work on sorting the insides of the tent out, such as folding the sleeping quarters out. Again, the top rated trailers have systems that allow you to just unlock a few fixings to create double beds and wardrobes in an instant. They even come with fully upholstered mattresses and back supports. The kitchen areas are also easy to create, and most come with fully equipped appliances such as cookers, grills, fridges and wash basins.

It is this attention to detail that makes trailer tents so simple to use, and why so many people are turning to them. The costs involved are not as much as you may think, and for a few hundred dollars you can be up and away in no time at all. If you are looking for more comfort, then the prices will reflect this. With so many models on the market, there is certainly something to suit your personal requirements. The used market is also full of bargains if you know what to look for.

Buying new will cost more, but the build quality of some of the more established brands is very good, and you should get many years of trouble free camping for the initial outlay. Towing is made easy because of the unique design, and most trailers can fit into your garage when not in use. This provides safe storage and will not clutter up your drive like a caravan would.
