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.
