Fiberglass camping trailers are an excellent option for couples and small families who want to enjoy RV travel in compact style. Fiberglass campers are certainly not the largest recreational vehicles on the road, but they definitely provide a cost effective, easy-to-tow recreational vehicle option.

Shopping for Fiberglass Camping Trailers

RVs made from fiberglass are less than 20 feet long, but many models feature amenities similar to those available on larger travel trailers. However, except for the fifth wheel units, they don't require the purchase of a special towing vehicle or equipment. They are fairly easy to store and are among the easiest travel trailers to pull. They also provide for the most economical RV travel option in that they tend to be less expensive than larger models and also have less of an impact on gas mileage while in-tow.

Examples of popular small fiberglass travel trailers are detailed below. Each of these units is lightweight and designed for maximum aerodynamic effectiveness and fuel efficiency.
