If you are tired of tenting and interested in getting something like a tent trailer or a lightweight travel trailer these tiny homes might just be the thing for you. The awesome thing about these trailers is their mobility, you can take them on the road with a small vehicle. So you don’t need to buy a truck to tow your heavy trailer around. Sure you can always get a vintage trailer and refinishing it, but you are taking the risk of getting a bad trailer that wasn’t maintained properly and is maybe leaking. The costs for repairs sometimes might exceed the cost of buying a brand new trailer. So the smartest thing is just buy a new one.
The market today has many new trailers, including new versions of the classic Airstreams and Teardrop models. The MeerKat is a great little trailer that has a lot to love about it. A very cool feature is the stand up headroom inside as well as the onboard toilet which many trailers of this size usually don’t come with. The weight on these trailers is around 900 pounds, meaning that you can tow it with just your car. Great for people that don’t own SUVs or trucks. It also fits perfectly in a garage so it can be protected from nature all year round. The dimensions of the trailer are as follows: 60 inch width on the outside and 58 inch on the inside with a total height of 73 inches on the inside, 9.6 long. The trailer can hold up to 2000 pounds of weight. The bed is pretty big, 59 by 70 by 81 inches, making it perfect for two people. There is also a small kitchen area with a sink and cabinets and a small countertop. The cabinets hide a very small ice chest too.
After the trailer is all set up and ready, you can add a tent area to provide some space for sitting outside without being annoyed by insects. The trailer door leads straight into the tent and then the tent has a large opening for going in and out. It also gives some much needed shade for those hellish summer days. The main area in the trailer has the U-shaped bench with storage underneath and overhead plus a table in the middle. The bench and table turn into the nice comfortable bed for night time. The floors are cabinets are all made out of hardwood which gives it that cabin feel. The makers also put a lot of windows space to allow for some great natural light and to enjoy the views of course. The popup in the middle of the trailer allows for a higher ceiling and more daylight. Wouldn’t it be just amazing to travel in one of these trailers?
