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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Through the nation, the tiny movement is on the rise. From the tiny home takeover to Marie Kondo teaching us the magical ways of minimal lifestyle, small and simple has taken the world by storm. Keeping with the trend, the RV industry has expanded its A-frame and teardrop builds. Despite their trendy arrival, compact campers are likely here to stay. As they’ve grown in popularity, people have begun to see the benefits of buying small. In this post, we’ll go through some of the reasons you should buy compact.
Compact campers for compact cars
For those who long to camp but are held back by highway hatchbacks, a smaller RV is the perfect solution. A-frame and teardrop campers are lighter and can be towed by much smaller cars. Along with their lightweight benefits, these smaller options are much easier to tow and park. Towing a 40 foot, 12 thousand pound fifth-wheel down the highway can be difficult, making for long, stressful hours on the road. Compact campers can be as low as 1,200 pounds, light enough for almost any car to handle.
Compact saves cash
Buying an A-frame or teardrop comes a couple thousand dollars cheaper than travel trailers or truck campers, but the unit price is just the beginning of your savings. Lighter campers mean towing with smaller, less expensive cars and spending much less on gas during your road trip. Even if you aren’t ready to make a big purchase there are plenty of financing opportunities available.
More campsite choices
When planning trips, many campsites will have size and weight limits on RVs. Even if there are lots big enough for a 40-footer, there usually are not many options available. With a small RV, size limit issues will likely be nonexistent. When the size of the lot doesn’t matter as much it gives you more options on where you’d like to stay. Near the bathrooms or on the water? The choice is yours when your camper fits into almost any lot available.
Spend more time outside
With motorhomes and fifth-wheels, the space and amenities provide a lot of comfortable entertainment. More along the lines of glamping, these RVs are equipped with cushioned armchairs and flat-screen TVs that might draw your attention away from the great outdoors. When you choose compact, there isn’t much room for hanging out. They’re designed to be slept in after a long day in the sunshine. There are often built-in outdoor kitchens and sometimes an outdoor shower attachment so you don’t have to completely rough it in the woods. Aside from sleeping, the rest of your time will be spent outside.
Cozy and snug
Compact campers provide a closeness not found in larger RVs. Although if you’re traveling with plenty of little ones, compact might not be the way to go! If you’re traveling solo, with your boo, your bestie, or even a four-legged companion A-frames and teardrops are the perfect place to cozy up at night. With their small spaces it’s easy to keep warm on cold winter nights and the shared space can provide plenty of time spent together. Plus, a warm bed to tuck into after a long day beats a sleeping bag or tarp.
Simple at-home storage
Between picky HOAs and one-car driveways, most homes don’t have the space or opportunity to park a large RV. While renting a parking spot may be an option, it’s cheaper and often brings more peace of mind to park your unit at home. Smaller dimensions provide a perfect opportunity to store your compact camper in your driveway, or even in a garage, for safekeeping at a great price – free!
While there are plenty of other benefits to be found in compact RVs, these are some of the most common ones when you ask teardrop-enthusiasts why they’ve chosen the style. Juniata Valley RV offers an ever-changing variety of new and used compact units. Check our site or give us a call at (717) 436-8883 to see what we have available.
