With the weather growing warmer and warmer by the day, you’re probably looking forward to getting away from Chilliwack for a few days. Maybe you’re thinking about heading west to Vancouver, or perhaps you’re planning to travel south to Seattle or California. No matter where you’re headed, recreational vehicles (RVs) are great alternatives to driving in a car or paying for expensive plane tickets. However, the costs of owning and operating a full RV can be almost as prohibitive as purchasing plane tickets. Travel trailers provide a low-cost alternative to RVs, and if you already have a truck, then you just need a few towing accessories before you can hit the road. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with a brief overview of why Canadians and Americans alike choose to invest in recreational towing.

All About Recreational Towing

Let’s start with the basics — why do people choose recreational towing over simply buying a recreational vehicle that they can drive to their desired destinations? While there are many factors that can influence this decision, cost and convenience are generally the most important. 

Think about your average camping trip. Do you ever have to run into town to get more food, water, or firewood? Camping in a recreational vehicle requires you to either take your friends and family with you or leave them without shelter while you’re away, but travel trailers provide an ideal solution. If you discover that you’re running low on marshmallows or any other camping necessities, all you have to do is unhitch the trailer and drive your truck into town. Your family and friends can all enjoy the comfort of your trailer and the campfire while you’re away, and you won’t have to worry about rushing back into the wilderness.

In addition to providing you with more freedom during your trips, towed RVs are also considerably easier to maintain than standard RVs. If your travel trailer needs a tune-up before your summer vacation, all you need to do is leave it with your local recreational towing experts. Standard RVs, however, are a bit more complicated to service. You’ll either have to wait in the shop for your tune-up to be completed, or you’ll have to arrange for a ride to and from the dealership — neither option is particularly convenient. This can be especially inconvenient if you’re out of town with your family, as nobody wants to have to stop the trip and wait for unexpected repairs.

We hope that this post has helped you to understand a bit more about recreational towing. Keep an eye out for future posts in which we’ll continue to visit this topic and provide you with even more information about recreational towing, towing laws, and some of the towing products we offer.
