Small Fiberglass Travel Trailers

Do you love the idea of traveling in an RV, but are determined to keep it as small and light as possible in order to go wherever you want? 

With a small towable RV you may be able to use your current vehicle to tow it, and store it at home when not in use.

One type of travel trailer that keeps coming up on my radar, is fiberglass travel trailers. They fit the small and light criteria, but they also have that basic requirement (of mine) of having a bathroom (toilet and shower) onboard.

Today, we’re going to look at these small fiberglass travel trailers and see what all the fuss is about!

Travel trailers are generally made from 3 different materials, wood, aluminium or fiberglass. 

There are lots of RVs that have fiberglass siding, or a composite fiberglass material, but I’m particularly looking at campers that are made from molded fiberglass.

We’ve already looked at quite a few small RVs; check them out here: Small RVs

Benefits of a small fiberglass RV

The benefits of fiberglass over other materials is that it is that it has less places where a leak can form. Many RVs will spring a leak in a seam, like where the roof meets the walls. But in a fiberglass trailer the walls and roof are one piece, so there’s no joins.

Fiberglass campers have good insulation properties and are lightweight which makes them a good option for towing behind a car or SUV.

So let’s have a look at what fiberglass travel trailers are available on the market now…

Scamp Lightweight Travel Trailers

www.scamptrailers.com

Scamp is well known for their range of small fiberglass travel trailers; not least because of their distinctive look. That familiar egg shape and cream colored exterior makes them instantly recognisable.

They’ve been going since the early 70’s and make travel trailers and fifth wheels in 13’ – 19’ lengths.

The smallest in their range is the 13’, and in that tiny space they still manage to fit a bathroom.

It’s not the prettiest decor, but it’s certainly a functional space.

Still a small (and light) rig, but big enough to be very comfortable. And the decor is much more appealing too!

With 4 lengths to choose from (13′ to 27′) you should be able to find a size that fits you. These 4 season campers will keep you comfortable year round, and they’ve got another, longer, model in the pipeline too.

I think their most popular one is the 17′ as they’ve got the most information about this one.

Questions about fiberglass travel trailers

Those are all the fibreglass / fiberglass travel trailers I’ve been able to find online.

But we still have a few questions…

Are fiberglass travel trailers better?

If you’re looking for a small and light camper, then yes, a fiberglass travel trailer may be the best option for you. 

They’re light, well insulated and not as prone to leaking as other RV materials.

What is the best fiberglass travel trailer?

You can’t beat a single piece of molded fiberglass, where there are no seams to leak and deteriorate. The Europeans have got it right with the Wingam Rookie and the Barefoot caravans.

How long do fiberglass trailers last?

As long as it is well maintained, a fibeglass travel trailer can last a really long time. You’ll find some Boler campers that were manufactured in the 60’s, still going strong today.

But fiberglass doesn’t tolerate UV sunlight very well, so it needs to be protected from UV. Also water ingress through a leaky window or vent, over time can cause damage to non-fiberglass parts in the trailer.

So maintenance is key to making sure your fiberglass trailer lasts a long time.

Which fibreglass travel trailer do you favor?

I think the layout and interior decor of the Casita are my favorite, it fits a lot into a (very) small camper, but has a modern and clean feel.

Which fiberglass travel trailer is your favorite?
