Are You Looking for a Used Camper Trailer

looking for camper 1Are you looking for a used camper trailer?  Well, you’ve come to the right place.  The internet is your best bet when starting to look for a used camper trailer.  I know that when I was looking for one, this is where I started too.  I am now the proud owner of a 2005 Montana 3255 fifth wheel that I bought for a GREAT deal.


The best thing to do when looking for a used camper trailer is figure out your budget.   You don’t want to fall in love with a camper that you can’t afford.  After you have your price range determined, then you want to decide what size camper you want.   If you have a pickup truck, then you can consider a bumper pull camper trailer or a fifth wheel camper trailer. If you have an SUV, van or other vehicle, you will have to look at bumper pull campers.

The towing capacity of your tow vehicle will determine what size camper you can get.  If you aren’t sure what your vehicles towing capacity is, call your local dealership and ask.  You want to make sure that the “wet” weight  (fully loaded weight)  of the camper doesn’t exceed the maximum towing capacity of your tow vehicle.

Now that you have those 2 items covered, you are ready to start looking.  Make sure that you look at campers that will accommodate that maximum number of regular campers that you will be taking. If you have a large family, you might consider a bunkhouse camper which has a bunk area made especially for the kids.  Most campers are equipped with 2 double beds or a queen and a pullout couch and dinette sleeping area.  While you are looking for a used camper trailer, also keep in mind the amenities that you will want such as: bathroom, kitchen, a/c & heat, TV, awning, ect.  Don’t waste your time looking at campers that won’t fit your needs.

A great place to look for used camper trailers is Craigslist.  Just be sure to adjust your search to the area that you are located.  Good luck with your search!
