What Exactly Is A Destination Trailer?

With such a wide variety of trailers and RVs available on the market today, it can be hard to keep them all separate and know which one is perfect for you. We want to help you make the most informed decision possible when it comes to purchasing your next RV. Our featured RV here, the Destination Trailer. The Destination Trailer is probably one of the least spoken about, but one of the most luxurious on the market today!

So What Is A Destination Trailer?

Destination Trailers are the original tiny home. With the current cultural explosion that is the tiny home movement, the Destination Trailer can proudly say that they did it first. Destinations tend to have some of the highest quality amenities of any type of RV, including full sized washers/dryers, residential refrigerators, and a plethora of other options that are more typical of a home than a travel trailer.

The Destination Trailer has been known by many names, including park model, cabin, villa, residential trailer, resort trailer and more… ( note, park models are technically different than destination trailers but the two are commonly interchanged sometimes incorrectly) … But no matter what you call it, the destination trailer is a true home away from home.

While most travel trailers are meant for life on the go, the destination trailer is meant to be stationary for months at a time. The destination trailer is a perfect option for long term campers. Those who want to find a spot, and settle down for a while before hitting the road again for a new season.

Something that sets the destination trailer apart from its true park model counterpart, is the fact that the destination is self contained. Meaning that they have holding tanks, grey water, and black water tanks and can be hooked to campground hookups if needed. Whereas the traditional park model does not contain these aspects and must be hooked to a residential sewer system.

Destination Trailer Interior

The destination trailer interior is a beautiful sight. Since these trailers tend to be larger and are meant to be stationary for longer periods of time, the interior tends to be more like that of a traditional home.

One of the most notable features of the destination trailer interiors is the kitchen. Most destination trailers have stunning kitchens reminiscent of what you would find in your block home. Equipped with kitchen islands, full sized stoves, residential refrigerators and more these kitchens are meant to be used!

Not only do destination trailers have beautiful kitchens, they tend to have residential style bathrooms as well. Full sized showers, residential toilets and large bathtubs perfect for all your pampering needs even when far away from home. You can see a great example of a stunning trailer bathroom here.

Who Needs A Destination Trailer?

Now that you know what a destination trailer is, you might now be asking who would need one? Well, there are a lot of people that would greatly benefit from the features and amenities that a destination trailer offers.

A perfect example is the snow bird. Someone who has property down south and plans to spend half of the year there while living the other half somewhere else. The destination trailer is a great option for these type of RVers since they are able to leave the trailer in place year round, but don’t have the hassle of a truly permanent residence.

Manufacturer Spotlight: Bison

Go where ever the trail leads in a Bison Living Quarters Trailer. Packing everything equine enthusiasts seek in models that combine affordable luxury for you and safe transportation for your horses, Bison Coach is the go-to-choice knowledgeable equine travelers, offering seven diverse product lines ranging from simple and lightweight to large and luxurious.

Since 1984, Bison has been building horse trailers known for their quality, strength, and affordability. In 2003, Bison once again took the lead in bringing the entire equine experience together under one rolling roof as it entered the living quarter market.

Not content to just build a “box” and ship out its horse trailers to be retrofitted with living quarters by another manufacturer, Bison Coach took the bit and committed to become a “one stop shop” for living quarters trailers, converting its Milford, In., manufacturing plant to construct its trailers from nose to tail.

By building its trailers under one roof, Bison saves its customers thousands of dollars from not shipping trailers – sometimes across the country – to have living quarters build and installed.  Those miles and all the workers involved add up to thousands in costs to consumers – and sometimes different warranty plans for different parts of the trailer. By building every trailer entirely at its production facility, Bison guarantees a better built trailer, backed by a hassle-free warranty.

Today, as part of Thor Industries, Bison continues to be the leading manufacturer of gooseneck living quarter trailers in North America, with a diverse line of aluminum and steel horse trailers. Whether you are traveling the rodeo circuit, trail riding, or hitting the show circuit, Bison Coach has a floorplan to fit your budget and needs.

The diverse Bison brand line of gooseneck living quarter trailers includes the aluminum over steel Trail Hand and Ranger and the all-aluminum Trail Boss, Laredo, Silverado, and Premiere.

Living quarter trailers are available in two, three and four slant load models with safety and comfort features Bison is known for, including padded stall dividers with gate springs, heavy-duty rubber matting, three-way vents above each stall, molded saddle racks and escape and pass through doors, exterior load lights. Tack areas with molded saddle racks, bridle hooks and brush box are standard.

For unequaled strength and value consider the economical steel-constructed Trail Hand and Ranger models. The Trail Hand offers unprecedented simple value while the surprising Ranger is the number one selling aluminum-over-steel living quarters trailer on the market today.

The Ranger is a great example of the affordable luxury offered by Bison. The living quarters are filled with features expected on high-end luxury brands, including rich upholstery, shaker hickory cabinet doors, residential plank-look flooring, and LED interior lighting.  Find full bathrooms with porcelain commodes, glass-doored residential showers. and large linen closets.

When light-weight towability and value are the priorities look to the Bison Trail Boss. The Trail Boss offers a relaxing retreat after a long day of trail riding or competing at a price to fit your budget. Built with uncompromising Bison quality including hardwood beaded maple cabinet doors and rich upholstered seating, full-residential style baths and a queen-bedded sleeping area. The functional trail Boss includes ample overhead storage and a living area slide-out for additional room.

Step up into the spacious Bison Laredo, available in 7-and 8-foot widths, which offers residential styling, a full slide-out that creates a roomy kitchen with two-way refrigerator, gas cook stove, with stainless range hood and matching microwave. Perfect for families and entertaining, the Laredo is available with an optional dinette, or sofa. The forward bedroom features a queen bed as well as additional storage, including two shirt closets and overhead cabinets.
