A popular trailer tent manufacturer these days is Raclet. They not only have a good reputation but can be more affordable than other brands of trailer tents.
The cheaper of the Raclet trailer tents is the Minto. This four berth trailer tent starts around £2000 and is not only compact but makes it a breeze to tow. It can be quite surprising how much room is available after the tent is unfolded considering how small it looks when packed away. The length of the trailer is just over 2 metres which also makes it possible to park in your garage for added safety. This alone could help you reduce your trailer tent insurance if you tell your insurer that it’s not only parked on your property but secured inside your garage. Additionally, there is the option of purchasing a canopy which can easily attach or detach.
Next in line is the Raclet Flores 230 trailer tent. This model is a bit longer than the Minto measuring at around three and a half metres but this longer trailer tent means more standard equipment such as storage space and more importantly, a kitchen unit. The Flores 230 can sleep 4 people and there is the option to purchase an extension if you require more space. Surprisingly, this tent trailer is not much more expensive than the Minto. If you absolutely need more space you may want to consider the Flores 480 but overall, the Minto and Flores models are very affordable and will suit you and your family well whether it be a spontaneous short stay or fortnight away during summertime.
Probably the most popular model of the Raclet trailer tent range would be the Solena. Still priced incredibly well at only £2900, this two berth trailer comes equipped with a hard top roof making it super easy to erect and collapse. This should inspire you to get on the road more often and take those little mini-breaks you’ve often thought about before the summer holidays.
The standard version of this trailer tent does not include a kitchen or awning but the space is available to purchase these additional addons making it more modular and flexible over time.
For a small amount more you could opt for the Raclet Allegra trailer tent which does include a kitchen and if you want, get the awning as an extension for a real feeling of extra space.
The top of the range however, is the Raclet Tamaris trailer tent. Equipment that comes standard includes a cooker, slide away tables, wardrobe, cassette toilet, mains for electrics and gas, as well as curtains for privacy to name but a few.
Overall, the Raclet trailer tent range is very affordable compared to other trailer tent manufacturers. The message is that if you are keen to go camping, looking to take mini-breaks with the family or friends, or simply want to get away for the summer, it is truly affordable to do so.
As always, no matter how much you spend on a new or used trailer tent, you’ll want invest in trailer tent insurance to protect your assets and keep them safe for years to come.
