Hitting the road and exploring the great outdoors has always been a popular pastime, but the coronavirus era has made it bigger than ever. One of the best ways to do it is with a camping trailer. Sure, you don’t get the optimal maneuverability of a camper van, or the readymade hashtags. But camping trailers are purpose-built for the task of living. You have more flexibility with them, in layout and capability. And when you’re not on the road, you can detach your trailer and store it somewhere.
