PPL motorhomes asks: “Trailer or Motorhome, Which Do You Prefer?”
If you’re looking for your first new or used Motorhome or trailer, or wanting to upgrade from the one you have now, picking between a trailer and motorhome can be a big decision.
The first thing you need to figure out is how the RV will be used, and whether you need to accommodate a lot of people and belongings. The next thing to consider is the budget, because a trailer will usually cost less than the most comparable motorhome. So, if you happen to be new to the world of recreational vehicles and cost is an issue, then a trailer would be a great place to start. Regardless which you choose, they can be stored at an indoor storing facility when not in use.
One of the biggest benefits of a trailer over a motorhome is the ability to unhitch it once you arrive at a campsite. If you hooked it up to a truck, you can maneuver on and around the campsite a lot easier than if you had a bigger motorhome (the motorhome does give you a lot of amenities inside that big package, though!). If you’re torn between the two — and have a specially outfitted truck — take a look at a fifth-wheel trailer for the ability to tow and to get some of the extras that a motorhome provide.
With a motorhome, you can tow a smaller vehicle behind to use on the campground, so you aren’t necessarily grounded at the site with one of the big boys. Also, once you set a motorhome up, it can be quite comfortable when you level it up and attach all of the hookups.
Either way, you can’t go wrong with a motorhome or a trailer, it just boils down to personal preference, camping lolcations you plan on choosing and your budget.
So, are you a Motorhome person or a Trailer person, either way we have quite a few used RVs at PPL Motorhomes, so I’m sure we can find the right one for you.
