Our Favorite Aliner Features

Aliner campers continue to be the go-to style for both new and experienced RVers. These small units are light, easy to tow, and fit in almost any campsite. They have all the benefits and comfort of RVing without the five-thousand pound, 30-foot tow-behind beast. Aliner, one of the most popular compact camper brands, offers a lot of amenities in a little space. These snug little towables sleep up to four with a dry weight of just over 1,000 pounds. While there are plenty of different designs to choose from, here are six of our favorite Aliner features.

Tinted windows

The tinted windows in Aliners provide privacy and protection. The dark windows, plus the day/night shades, provide plenty of privacy at all times of day and night. The dark tint on the windows also helps keep these campers cool. Tinted windows block out some of the sunlight, preventing it from getting too hot inside.

Dinette bed

Sleep four in these 15-foot popups thanks to the dinette bed. The booth seating and table easily convert to a 46”x76” bed. Thanks to the creative design, the whole family can camp in this lightweight option.

our favorite aliner features spare tire

Spare tire kit

Be prepared for anything with the spare tire kit. Aliner campers are designed with a spare tire attached so you never get stuck in a sticky situation. Small doesn’t mean sacrifice with Aliner’s genius designs.

Indoor microwave

One feature that should never be overlooked is the microwave. The magic of having food ready in one to three minutes is too often taken for granted! Aliners, like most compact campers, have an “outdoor kitchen” feature, which refers to an outdoor stovetop burner in this case. But the beauty of a microwave, despite the speedy food prep, is the indoor comforts. No worries about trying to cook up dinner in the cold or the dark with your outdoor kitchen!

External shower

Limited space doesn’t have to mean sweaty kids! Keep clean on long camping weekends with Aliner’s external shower. An outdoor shower saves indoor space, and is easy to store when you’re towing down the highway.

our favorite aliner features couch bed

Sofa bed

Rear sofa beds provide comfort day and night! The comfy cushions make a great couch for reading, talking or sheltering from rainy weather. When it’s time for bed, just flip the backrest down for a roomy mattress that sleeps two to three. Aliners are known to make the most out of limited space.

The list of features worth bragging about when it comes to Aliners is long. If you’re interested in learning more or purchasing a trailer from Juniata Valley RV please contact us online or give us a call at (877) 714-0415. Our team of RV-loving experts would be happy to help out!
