No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
2 2860-3634 lbs 4 16-21 feet

Why we recommend the Airstream Sport travel trailer: Airstream RVs have a great selection of travel trailers! One floorplan in particular was our favorite: The Airstream Sport. It only has 2 floorplans, the Sport 16RB and the Sport 22FB, but it is lightweight (under 5,000 pounds) and spans 21 feet. This means you can easily tow it across the country and won’t have to worry about breaking the campground parking laws in any state.

As far as features go, you’ll find that the sport has more than a few amenities to offer. From the aluminum construction on the door, hinges, underbelly, wheels, and the superstructure, to the LED lighting, vinyl flooring, and HD LED TV on the inside, it’s clear that the Sport does not compromise. You can add various certifications and safety measures as a part of its expansions as well, making it a decently upgradable camper. All in all? Top marks to Airstream for making a top-of-the line quality travel trailer.

Key Features:

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
17 3127-5277 lbs 3-8 20-25 feet

Why we recommend Forest River Flagstaff Micro-Lite travel trailer: This isn’t the first time that the Flagstaff Micro-Lite by Forest River RV has been featured on our top 5 pages. It didn’t surprise us when it managed to make the list, considering that you have 17 different floorplans to choose from. These floorplans range from the featherweight 3127 pounds, to slightly heavier at 5277 pounds (but still easily towable). Bunkhouse floorplans are available for the Flagstaff Micro-Lite as well, allowing you to house up to 8 people.

While we particularly liked the Flagstaff Micro-Lite 23LB and the Flagstaff Micro-Lite 25FBLS, the other floorplans are just as fantastic and barely do they differ from the aforementioned floorplans in terms of features. On the outside, the aluminum construction coupled with the laminated fiberglass sidewalls will convince you that it’ll beat the rough roads when you’re traveling away outside the city. Step inside this beautiful brand, and it’s all luxury from the vinyl flooring to the 13,500 BTU Air Conditioner, with an option to upgrade to a 15,000 BTU version.

Key Features:

  • 17 different floor plans available
  • Solid wood and raised panel doors and drawers
  • Recessed ceiling LED 12-volt interior lighting
  • Full aluminum frame
  • Power awning with adjustable rain dump and LED Lighting
  • Vinyl/rubber composite roofing membrane

16 4449-6665 lbs 3-8 25-34 feet

Why we recommend the Dutchmen Aerolite travel trailer: Dutchmen is already a well-known brand. However, amidst their variety of travel trailers, we particularly liked the Aerolite. Like the Flagstaff Micro-Lite, this brand has also been featured on one of our lists, but we’re not surprised. After all, you know a travel trailer is amazing when it’s spec sheet alone is impressive. It has 16 floorplans to choose from, most of them ranging from ~4500 to ~6500 pounds and spanning 25 to 34 feet. We recommend checking out the Aerolite 2110RBSL and the Aerolite 2573BH.

There’s no compromises with the Aerolite when it comes to features as well. From the LED-lit power awning to the 13,500 BTU Air Conditioner, you’ll find most features you could expect from a good travel trailer and then some. Expansions are paid attention to as well with options ranging from to and everything in between. Needless to say, the Aerolite has earned its spot here as one of the best travel trailer brands!

View All Keystone Passport Elite Travel Trailer Floorplans!

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
8 4384-7020 lbs 3-10 23-38 feet

Why we recommend the Keystone Passport travel trailer: If you liked the Aerolite, then the Passport Elite by Keystone isn’t much different. With the exception of the number of floorplans, both have closely similar weight range, length and even sleeping capacity. Out of the 6 floorplans that this camper offered, the Passport Elite 23RB and the Passport Elite 31RI are the ones that we liked the most.

The feature list is also quite similar to the Aerolite, and hence just as amazing. It’s got a 13,500 BTU air conditioner and an LED flat-screen HDTV on the inside. The exterior is built out of aluminum (sidewalls) and laminated gel-coated filon (exterior walls). There’s also options to add a 15,000 BTU A/C, free-standing dinette and chairs, and 2nd A/C prep. For all of its great features, it’ll be hard to find something just as awesome in this price range!

Key Features:

  • 6 different floor plans
  • Seamless laminated gel-coated Filon exterior walls
  • Insulated lockable radius baggage doors with hold backs
  • Residential style furniture with high grade fabric
  • 13,500 BTU air conditioner

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
9 2430-3650 lbs 3-6 15-27 feet

Why we recommend Livin Lite Camplite travel trailer: Livin Lite doesn’t manufacture too many brands, but the brands it does are quite convenient and lightweight (hence the name). The Camplite in particular is one of those RVs that we keep coming back to. 9 floorplans that can house 3-6 people should be enough for you to choose the one that’s right for you. We recommend taking a look at the Camplite CL16BHB and the Camplite CL21RBS.

Despite it’s small size and lightweight build, Livin Lite has managed to add all of the essential travel trailers features, managed to make it look luxurious and even added some extras without making it look cluttered at all. The 6 cubic feet double door refrigerator sits comfortably alongside the 2-burner stovetop on a reasonably sized kitchen countertop. Bottom Line: Livin Lite is a genius when it comes to accommodating the best RV features in a small travel trailer.

Key Features:

  • 9 different floor plans available
  • All-aluminum tube cabinet structures
  • 6-sided aluminum superstructure
  • Two blue LED lighted exterior speakers
  • 3 Interior color choices, including all-aluminum cabinet door option
  • Charging center with USB ports
