Holidays abroad are getting a lot more expensive – this is a well-known fact. And they have been for the last few years. With the price of aviation fuel going up, the price of flying is going to rocket. Train tickets are seeing rapid annual increases and it is clear that it is going to get much worse as time goes on. For this reason, many people have decided instead to spend their hard earned money on something more sustainable that will allow them to go on holiday for years to come without the extortionate cost.
Many people have taken up camping – a very cost effective and flexible option as you can travel all around the country and the world without having to pay high hotel rates. And, the only major cost involved is buying the equipment in the first place. However, many people forget about the most important thing – a trailer. Trailers facilitate campers to travel to their destination with all of their equipment and without the agonising crush inside the car. In this article, I want to help you find the right trailer for you.
The most important thing to consider when looking for a trailer is to understand how much space you are going to need. If in doubt, go larger (too much space is better than not enough).
You should also consider the power of your car – whilst most cars should be able to handle the weight, a smaller or older car may struggle a little to pull the weight, particularly up hills. An older car may also be lacking a strong enough tow bar. If you think this may be a problem, get it checked by a professional.
As for the manufacturer – I would recommend the DAXARA range. they produce trailers that scale from 3’5”x2’9” holding 350kg up to 6’x3’9” holding 750kg, so you can be sure there will be one that fits your needs and the size of your party.
You can also purchase a cycle bar from the same range (so you can be sure it will be compatible with you trailer) which will allow you to also travel with your bike in tow.
