Travel trailers come in many different sizes and price ranges. The smaller ones can weigh less than 2,000 pounds and suitably fit a family of five or four adults. The size of the smaller ones make them a great first purchase for those who have little to no RV experience.

Larger travel trailers can weigh as much as 9,000 pounds and range in size from about 25 to 36 feet. These can comfortably accommodate larger families and many adults. While smaller trailers generally are for short-term use, larger trailers can be used by two people, depending on the floor plan.

Most travel trailers, regardless of size, contain compact living arrangements. In many models, dinettes, day beds, and sofas double as regular beds at night, with some trailers allowing for stationary bed use. Most models are self-contained with full bath, dining, and kitchen facilities.
