When determining which towable RV is right for you and your particular camping needs, it’s best to look at all options available. Destination, Park Models and Travel Trailers all offer their own advantages, but what exactly is the difference? We’ll look at each type of RV home away from home so you can make an informed decision as to which style is right for you.
Destination Trailers are RVs designed to be easily towed and parked at a campground, RV park, or other destination for a season. Unlike Park Models, Destination Trailers are self contained and include waste holding tanks and a freshwater tanks.
Because these RVs are made for long-term use, they can be heavy and require a one ton truck to be towed. Additionally, these RVs feature beautiful residential accents to make you feel right at home in comfort and luxury. Bay windows, electric fireplaces, gourmet style kitchens with residential refrigerators and many other amenities are available.
Having these upscale features in a roomy, spacious environment while also having water and waste tanks opens up your destination options because you are not dependent on sewer and water hookups.

Park Model Homes offer all the comforts of home at 400 square feet or less and are intended to be parked as a long-term living solutions. Dishwashers, washers and dryers, and hardwood cabinets lend to the homey feeling in a park model. Many park models also come with loft floorplans to provide more space similar to tiny home layouts.
However, park models do not have tanks so the proper utilities must be available in order for you to have full function of this long term living RV option.

Travel Trailers offer the most versatility in transportation and range in lengths up to 37 feet. They can also include features such as a fireplace and plenty of seating, but general don’t have as much of a home like atmosphere of a destination or park model.
While this popular RV option is excellent for campers on the move, if you have a campground that you plan on staying at for an extended period of time, it is worth considering other long term RV options.
