Aliners Are Winning the Hearts of RV Buyers

“It’s not about being small, it’s about doing more, with less”  Greg McAdoo said it best. It’s a common misconception that bigger is always better – and The Aliner is a perfect example of getting more for less, while doing less and getting more. This amazing camper that was once an idea has become one of the worlds most favorite travel toys and continues to surprise us with adventure and quality products. Lets dive into the reasons why Aliners are winning the hearts of RV Buyers.

The History of The Aliner Camper

A lot of really great business ideas started out as hobbies. This is a great example of that. In the early 1970s, Ralph Tait had an idea so he went into his garage in Bend, Oregon and began tinkering. Several weeks and a few blisters later, he emerged with a revolutionary design for the first A-frame pop-up camper. It was sensible. It was different. And it was light enough to be towed with just about any vehicle. Friends wanted one. Family wanted one. Friends of family wanted one. As word of mouth spread, Ralph found himself making more campers out of his garage. That’s when Ralph’s sons had their own bright idea. Why not turn this hobby into a real business?

The family moved to Pennsylvania and began making Aliner campers. Two brothers would build one. The third brother would hitch it to the family station wagon and drive across the country until he sold it. When he returned, the brothers would have another Aliner waiting. After years of hard work and several hundred thousand miles on the poor station wagon, the family retired in 2007. Today they continue to build every Aliner with the same quality, craftsmanship and pride as Ralph and his sons did for over 30 years.

Aliner Classic

The Classic

This is the model that started it all. All other Aliner models are variations of this original design. Classic earned its name by satisfying customers for over 30 years. It’s not the largest or smallest. It’s not the heaviest or lightest. It’s what Classic owners like to call “just right.” Versatile, adaptable, comfortable with everything you want and nothing you don’t. The Classic is just that …classic.

Aliner Expedition

The Expedition

Ready to handle any adventure, Expedition offers nearly double the “living space”, 30% more storage room, taller counter tops, taller beds, flush mount euro style sink and stove, and our highest capacity chassis compared to our other models. Even as our largest model, it weighs less than 2,000 lbs and is towable by many fuel-efficient vehicles. Expedition is perfect model for the whole family or the couple that just wants more room.

The Minnie has been a constant through many years of innovation and change. The name may sound small, but this travel trailer really packs a punch with how much it takes advantage of its compact space. The highlight takeaway is it’s size – the size makes it lightweight and easy to pull, yet it’s still full of all the convenient features you need to make your time on the road feel like home.

If the Minnie is still a bit big for you, consider the Micro Minnie. This compact camper gives you many of the Minnie’s features, packed into 7-foot wide open floor plans. For those who prefer a simplistic retro feel, it doesn’t get any more classic than the Minnie Drop. This aerodynamic camper has an old school feel with modern convenience.

Winnebago Minnie Plus

If you want to upgrade from the Minnie, the Minnie Plus could be the perfect choice. Juniata carries both the Minnie Plus travel trailer and the all-new Minnie Plus fifth wheel option. Both provide spacious interiors with plenty of storage and full depth slide-outs. Choosing between the travel trailer option and the fifth wheel option can be challenging – be sure to check out this guide on whether a travel trailer or fifth wheel is right for you.

This newer model from Winnebago provides all the comforts of home with floorpan options that include a king size bed and a full refrigerator.
