What are Travel Trailers?
Travel trailer make up the majority of the towable sales, and for good reason. Travel trailers are large trailers towed completely behind the tow vehicle and are hitched to the back of the tow vehicle. These vehicles can be anything that has enough power and torque to pull the trailer. Depending on the size, a travel trailer can be towed with a 6-cylinder sedan, a 1/2 ton pick-up, an SUV, or even a minivan. Travel trailers are also popular due to their improved fuel economy. The biggest factor in towing is the front cross section of the trailer. A travel trailer has a lower profile than a 5th wheel, so they tend to average 2-3mpg over fifth wheels.
