How To Choose The Best Camper Trailer

I know how hard it is to find the trailer that’s right for you. There are so many on the market, with different features, sizes, and prices. You can easily get lost in the vast selection of choices.

The truth is, if your situation is like most, the trailer will also be used for a lot of other things like moving furniture, hauling leaves, and other equipment.

Take some time and think through your needs and all the possibilities (like your friends’ needs, your wife’s needs, and your wife’s friends needs – Yes, we’ve all been there). Knowing how the trailer will be used is the first big step in your decisions toward the best trailer for you.

Here are the things you should consider when buying a trailer

Off-road capability

For many owners, part of the attraction of camper trailers is getting to places that caravans can’t reach. This often means choosing a camper with off-road and semi-off-road capabilities.

Towing capacity

Don’t be fooled by the trailer’s slight form-factor. While they’re usually lighter than caravans, camper trailers can comprise a lot of mass for their size. Make sure you understand the towing capacity of your vehicle before you buy.


Like towing capacity, don’t underestimate campers when it comes to cost. In addition to off-road capability, options such a foldout stainless steel kitchen, portable toilet and shower, 240-volt and solar power, tent construction and materials, stone guards and annexes, to name a few, can push a camper’s price well into the tens of thousands – which is caravan territory.

What type of trailer should I choose?

Regardless of which camper and options you go with, one thing is certain – you’re buying a way of life that few get to enjoy.

At National Trailers and Campers, we know that the Australian climate can sometimes be tough: you need not worry with our mobile trailers. All of our custom-made trailers are 100% Australian made, meaning you can put your faith in our high-quality products that can perform in the most unexpected of weather conditions.

At the same time, taking to the road can involve some challenges – long distances and extreme weather are all part of the package when you live or travel in Australia. Having said that, we truly believe that travelling in custom made trailer in Australia can – and should – be a safe, comfortable (if not luxurious!) and exciting experience.

That’s why our box trailers are here – to facilitate exceptionally enjoyable journeys for you, your family and your friends, whether you’re working on the road or taking a hard-earned vacation our trailers that are 100% Australian made are ready for the task at hand.

Compared to RVs, camper trailers and box trailers are much more versatile and ideal for individuals who love to hit the road in any desired period. Nevertheless, many feel that full-sized camper trailers are often a bit too cumbersome or large for certain needs. Therefore, if you’re considering carrying motorbikes, bike trailers will most likely fit the bill.

If you have any questions about our trailers or other products, feel free to talk to us. Our team is knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and can help you make the right decision based on your specific needs. That is why we are here! Don’t hesitate to contact us today on (02) 8798 4123
