Travel trailers or caravans are designed to be towed by another vehicle such as a car or 4wd. They're hooked up by way of a bumper or trailer hitch. They're much more protected and comfortable than a camper trailer or tent.
The history of travel trailers trace back to Europe where the Romani people, otherwise known as gypsies, lived and traveled in their horse drawn homes.
The Bristol Carriage Company brought the first leisure trailer to us in 1880, which was built for a gentleman named Dr. W. Gordon-Stables.
They have come a long way since its humble beginnings and is now a popular way of vacationing all around the world, especially with families and the ever increasing grey nomad population.
A huge advantage of owning a travel trailer is that if you love traveling or camping, you can pretty well stop anywhere and rest for a while. No worries about pitching a tent or setting up your camping trailer. No need for expensive hotels or arranging hotel reservations. When you get tired, just pull over and have a rest on a comfortable bed. Boil the kettle for a coffee and have a bite to eat.
Travel trailers range in sizes, from the basic model which comprises of just a single axle two berth caravan with very limited kitchen facilities and no toilet, to the much larger triple axle models, comprising all the luxuries of a home away from home.
