When making a purchase like buying a trailer or a motorhome, there are a few key differences between the two you should consider. Do you have the capability to tow a travel trailer? Are you looking for a more affordable option? What kind of camping and traveling are you looking to do? These are just a few of the things you’ll have to take into consideration before you make your purchase.


Motorhomes and travel trailers come in various sizes and can be distinct in their uses. Motorhomes are often larger and require more maintenance than their trailer counterparts; however, they generally offer more spacious living areas and kitchens, and smaller motorhomes make for a better highway driving experience.

One advantage that travel trailers have over motorhomes is that they can range from 41 feet long to just the size of your truck bed. The largest limiting factor here is your towing capacity, so you should take your current vehicle’s specifications into consideration before you buy.


Between initial price, overall maintenance, and insurance, there is no doubt you will be spending more on a motorhome than you would be buying a travel trailer. This is simply because you are buying a recreational vehicle instead of buying a trailer. This means more up front cost, on top of normal vehicle maintenance like oil changes, changing brakes, etc.


What kind of camper are you? Are you looking for a luxurious road trip with you and your family? Then a class B or C motorhome might be a great fit for you. Do you find yourself on dirt roads in the mountains more often than not? Then a good truck and small to mid-sized travel trailer may be the better option.
