Last Updated on

Just because you’re on the road, it doesn’t mean that you have to let go of the luxuries. Even though the main job of a trailer is to provide you with a comfortable place to sleep and camp, it doesn’t hurt to live your best life even when you’re on the road. Having a luxury travel trailer will take your RVing experience to the next level. 

There are numerous different models of travel trailers out there. We have picked seven phenomenal travel trailers that are small and compact yet will provide you a luxurious experience. These trailers are equipped with all the necessary amenities and more that you need to enjoy our journey to the fullest. Let’s take a look at our top 7 picks for small travel trailers.

Our Top Picks for 7 Small Luxury Travel Trailers

TAXA Cricket Camper Trailer

TAXA Cricket Camper Trailer

Specs:

  • Length – 15 feet.
  • Width – 6 feet 7 inches.
  • Height when closed/open – 6 feet 11 inches/9 feet 2 inches.
  • Dry weight – 1,732 pounds.
  • GVWR – 2,500 pounds.

Key features:

  • Retractable roof for increased headroom.
  • Sleeps 2 adults and 2 children.
  • Convenient under-bed storage space.
  • Kitchen counter with a stove and sink.
  • Exterior shower.

One of the more compact luxury travel trailers on our list, the Cricket camper trailer by TAXA boasts remarkable storage efficiency. It certainly isn’t the roomiest and most comfortable trailer in the top, but it is space-saving.

The key feature of this camper is the retractable roof. When it’s in the down position, the trailer is just 6 feet 11 inches tall, allowing for convenient storage and transport without having to worry about headroom clearance. But when extended, this trailer can provide up to 6 feet 10 inches of interior height for its occupants!

In spite of its 15 feet length, the Cricket can sleep up to 4 people – 2 adults and 2 children. And thanks to the convenient under-bed storage area, things inside the RV won’t become a crowded mess when traveling with the entire family.

The Cricket also comes with an integrated stove and sink, so you have some decent cooking capacity by default. But if you buy the optional Dometic refrigerator/freezer, you will get a full kitchen in the Cricket!

TAXA Mantis Camper Trailer

7 Best Small Luxury Travel Trailers 1

Specs:

  • Length – 19 feet.
  • Width – 7 feet 6 inches.
  • Height closed/open – 6 feet 10 inches/10 feet.
  • Dry weight – 3,020 pounds.
  • GVWR – 4,000 pounds.

Key features:

  • Pop-up roof for increased headroom.
  • Sleeps 4 adults.
  • Convenient under-bed storage space.
  • Kitchen counter with a stove and sink.
  • 6,000BTU AC.

TAXA’s Mantis camper improves on what the Cricket had. This camper is bigger, more comfortable, and a little bit heavier.

One of the notable differences in the Mantis is the increased interior height – up to 7 feet 10 inches! Of course, this camper is taller with the roof popped up, but on the other hand, it’s 1 inch shorter than the Cricket when the roof is down!

Thanks to its increased length and width, the Mantis camper has more amenities to offer. It offers sleeping space for 4 adults and seating space for 6, and even some free area for an optional wet bath system!

Aside from that, the Mantis comes with a 6,000BTU AC by default, while the Cricket only had an optional 5,000BTU unit. The Mantis thereby is a better option for hot weather when stock.

In the end, the Mantis retains the storage efficiency of the Cricket while adding a considerable level of comfort on top. But at the cost of increased weight, size, and obviously a higher price.

Homegrown Trailers Timberline Travel Trailer

Homegrown Trailers Timberline Travel Trailer

Specs:

  • Length – 23 feet.
  • Width – 7 feet 11 inches.
  • Height – 8 feet 11 inches.
  • Dry weight – 4,150-4,350 pounds.
  • GVWR – 4,000 pounds.

Key features:

  • Off- and on-grid variants available.
  • 600-800W solar power in the off-grid package.
  • 3.6-6.0 KW/h Li-Ion battery capacity in the off-grid package.
  • Full kitchen.
  • Interior bathroom with a shower and toilet.
  • Roomy and comfortable.

Being the largest trailer on the list, the Timberline travel trailer by Homegrown Trailers isn’t particularly storage-efficient, but it definitely is among the most comfortable RVs on our list.

Just take a look at the amenities it has! It comes with a queen bed, a dinette/bunk area (depending on what you choose), a full kitchen with ample countertop room, a cooktop, sink, and a refrigerator, and a bathroom with a shower and toilet. Everything you’d need for off-grid living!

Speaking of off-grid living, the Timberline travel trailer comes in two main packages – on-grid and off-grid. Among the key features of the off-grid package are the preinstalled 600-800W solar panels and 3.6-6.0 KW/h of Li-Ion battery capacity.

The off-grid package costs about $8,000 more than the off-grid package, but this may be worth it if you aren’t intending to stay at RV parks or campgrounds. But even in its more basic on-grid package, this RV does offer some excellent comfort and functionality.

Airstream Sport Travel Trailer

Airstream Sport Travel Trailer

Specs:

  • Length – 22 feet 8 inches/16 feet 4 inches.
  • Width – 7 feet 3.25 inches/8 feet.
  • Height w/ AC – 9 feet 3 inches.
  • Base weight – 2,860/3,634 pounds.
  • GVWR – 3,500/4,500 pounds.

Key features:

  • Classical travel trailer design.
  • Two floorplans to choose from.
  • Full kitchen with a stove, fridge, and a sink.
  • 12,000BTU ducted furnace.
  • 11,000/13,500BTU AC with heat strip.
  • Wet bath in the smaller model.
  • Roomy full bathroom in the larger model.
  • Multi-stage RV converter.

The Sport travel trailer line by Airstream has two very different floorplans, both of which are worthy of consideration as small luxury trailers.

Sized at 16 feet 4 inches in length, Sport 16RB is one of the smaller floorplans on the entire list. In spite of its size, it does come very well-equipped – it includes a wet bath, a full kitchen with a sink, a stovetop, and a refrigerator, as well as a 12,000BTU ducted furnace and an 11,000BTU AC! And it can sleep up to 4 people!

16RB is great compared to some other similarly-sized floorplans, but 22FB is even better. It retains the key features of its smaller counterpart while adding on top a larger 13,500BTU AC, a microwave oven, more storage space, and a full-size bathroom that offers the comfort level of a residential bathroom.

And all this beauty is wrapped in Airstream’s iconic classic RV design!

If you are intending to have a long journey or maybe want to live full-time in a travel trailer, Airstream Sport RVs may be the best ones to do so in.

Forest River Wildwood FSX 167RB Travel Trailer

Forest River Wildwood FSX 167RB Travel Trailer

Specs:

  • Length – 22 feet.
  • Width – 90 inches.
  • Height – 10 feet 2 inches.
  • UVW – 3,004 pounds.
  • Carrying capacity – 841 pounds.

Key features:

  • Full bathroom.
  • Full kitchen with a 6 cubic feet fridge and microwave.
  • Plenty of interior space.
  • 20,000BTU furnace.
  • 13,500BTU roof AC.

The smallest floorplan in the Forest River Wildwood travel trailer line, the 167RB floorplan is among the most interesting ones. It doesn’t have the highest sleeping capacity or the best functionality in its series, but it’s a great floorplan for the purposes of this post.

This floorplan has the best bathroom in the entire Wildwood travel trailer line – occupying the entire width of the RV in the back, it boasts ample room, a large shower cabin, a toilet, a quite large sink, and even a linen closet! 

The kitchen in the 167RB isn’t unique in the Wildwood line, but it’s still very well-equipped – it features a 6 cubic feet refrigerator, a microwave, and, of course, a sink with a cooktop.

The 167RB travel trailer also has solid climate control capabilities thanks to its 20,000BTU furnace and 13,500BTU roof AC unit. This travel trailer should stay comfortable to live in no matter the weather!

Overall, if you are ready to go for a larger and heavier travel trailer, this one may be a good option, perhaps even better than the 22 feet Airstream Sport travel trailer, especially given that this thing is over 500 pounds lighter!

URV iCamp Elite Camper

ICamp Elite

Specs:

  • Length – 14 feet.
  • Width – 6 feet 8 inches.
  • Height – 8 feet 1 inch.
  • Tare mass – 2,366 pounds.
  • Max mass – 2,890 pounds.

Key features:

  • 1.9 cubic feet fridge.
  • Sleeps 2-3 people.
  • Modular bathroom with marine toilet and shower.
  • 60A RV converter.

If you’d rather sacrifice some comfort for storage efficiency and compactness, then the iCamp Elite Camper by United Recreational Vehicles may be an excellent option for you. Sized at just 14 feet in length, it’s the smallest travel trailer on our list!

In spite of its small size though, the iCamp comes remarkably well-equipped.

A big surprise at this size is the modular bathroom with a marine toilet and shower. We expected this camper to have no bathrooms and instead come with an exterior shower, but no, it does have a quite decent bathroom!

This small guy can also sleep 2-3 people, which is again very solid for the size. Things will probably be cramped in this camper with 3 occupants, but it can indeed accommodate families of 3.

The kitchen area is great for the size as well – it features a stainless steel sink, a stovetop, and a 1.9 cubic feet refrigerator.

In the end, the iCamp is a very solid camper for its size – in spite of its compactness, it’s very well-equipped and is an excellent option if you are looking for a light and small RV.

KZ Escape Mini M181UD Travel Trailer

KZ Escape Mini M181UD Travel Trailer

Specs:

  • Length – 20 feet 9 inches.
  • Width – 96 inches.
  • Height w/out AC – 105 inches.
  • UVW – 2,878 pounds.
  • GVWR– 3,500 pounds.

Key features:

  • Large full-size bathroom.
  • Full kitchen with a 4 cubic feet refrigerator and microwave.
  • Optional off-road package.
  • 20,000BTU furnace.
  • RV converter.

And the last travel trailer on our list is another relatively large RV, the 20 feet 9 inches long Escape Mini M181UD by KZ. It’s not the largest travel trailer on our list nor the heaviest, but it’s equipped nearly as good as the larger models!

The Escape Mini M181UD travel trailer features a full bathroom with ample room, a full kitchen with a decent 4 cubic feet refrigerator and convection microwave, a 20,000BTU furnace, and plenty of interior room. And with the addition of the optional 13,500BTU AC, this RV becomes a nice option to live in water climates!

Speaking of options, one remarkable thing that you could choose is the off-road package, which delivers extra ground clearance, larger mud tires, and a double-entry step.

And perhaps the best thing about the KZ Escape Mini M181UD is that its GVWR is 3,500 pounds, which means that less powerful trucks and vehicles should have no problem towing it!
