Even the “privileged” ones being able to afford big luxurious RVs are becoming more and more “environmentally-conscious”.
So while looking for large, expensive and well-equipped travel trailers to extend their home-like living conditions when home away, they still look at option of “being lite”.
If not consciousness, it’s at least the fashion, the “word-of-the-day”.
That is why many manufacturers following this trend designed and rolled-out a range of luxurious travel trailers with reduced weight. It is achieved through careful engineering, use of new materials (aluminum, fiberglass and composites).
The result is striking – from the outside these new models are catching eye thanks to elegant lines, stylishness, colors while inside, due to more lavishness and abundance that many wouldn’t easily give up on.
