The overall weight of a camper depends on the material it is made from.

Below are the main types of campers:

Towable travel trailers are attached to the back of a vehicle. These trailers have an expendable section that can be pulled to increase the living space.

Folding trailers are lighter than travel trailers, and they are smaller. These trailers have tough platforms, but walls and roofs made from flexible materials. Flexible walls and roofs make it possible to fold and collapse the trailer before you get to your destination. You can also spread the trailer large once you have reached your destination. These trailers are less expensive than travel trailers, and can accommodate up to six people.

Fifth-wheel trailers are the backbone of a camper. These campers have the upper half that extends above the back of the vehicle. Generally, the vehicle is a pick up truck. These trucks come with a special hitch, called a fifth-wheel hitch or gooseneck hitch. This design is more stable and solid than other types.
