These salvage recreational vehicles are popular for people who accommodate a lot of people while camping as they can comfortably sleep four to six people in the average-sized models and up to ten in the larger sizes.
Trailer Salvage Recreational Vehicles
A travel trailer usually refers to RVs with two axles or larger one-axle trailers.
This vehicle can be pulled behind any vehicle with a standard trailer hitch and enough horsepower. Some have amenities such as a toilet or refrigerator, but they usually designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible.
A fifth-wheel is an extremely large trailer mounted in the bed of a truck, and are the closest trailer equivalent to a class A motorhome, often having similar amenities.
Special fifth-wheel trailers with a garage area are sometimes called “toy haulers.” They have enough room for a small vehicle, motorcycles, or personal crafts such as jet skis and ATVs.
Keep your family size in mind when you are planning your purchase, and enjoy your RV for years to come. View RideSafely salvage recreational vehicles inventory here.
