The hybrid travel trailer, just like its name suggests, is a cross between a more conventional travel trailer and a tent trailer. It has rigid walls with canvas sliding ends where the beds are located once the trailer is unfolded. This design gives more living space in the centre of the trailer and allows more layout options. New on the market since the early 2000s, hybrid travel trailer represents a great, flexible and fairly affordable RV option for both regular and occasional travellers.
It offers all the amenities of classic travel trailers like a kitchen, a dining area, a living room with an entertainment station, a bathroom, beds, and a lot of storage spaces. Depending on the model, it can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people, and is perfect for families.
Hybrid travel trailers are generally lighter than conventional travel trailers and can be towed by different mid-size vehicles including your family car, SUV and pickup truck. Some smaller and lighter models can also be towed by most 6-cylinder family vehicles. This can truly be a major asset when comes the time to choose a travel trailer since it does not necessarily require the purchase of a new vehicle to tow it.
