Taking Your Lightweight Camper Out For Memorial Day Weekend

Taking Your Lightweight Camper Out For Memorial Day Weekend

Summer is right around the corner! Many people consider Memorial Day to be the unofficial start of the summer season, which means that camping season is almost here! However, life can get pretty hectic, and maybe you haven’t planned your camping trip yet. No worries, we’re here to help. In this blog post, we will help you plan a trip to take out your truckless travel trailer for an incredible Memorial Day weekend camping trip.

Planning Your Trip

Now that we are in the month of May, the options available to you will become more limited, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any options at all. There are plenty of places to take your truckless travel trailer to have a great Memorial Day camping experience.


When planning a last-minute camping trip, the key is to think small. The holiday rush will book up many larger parks, or their prices will be much higher for such a popular camping weekend. But don’t give up hope! This Memorial Day weekend, several great smaller destinations will be perfect for your family and friends. Consider your local and regional RV parks; this could be an excellent opportunity to get to know your fellow RVers and come together to celebrate the unofficial start of summer!


Your trip budget should be crucial for your Memorial Day 2022 planning. If you are purchasing or renting your lightweight camper for the first time, this will likely be your most considerable expense. Don’t worry; we’ll be discussing your options for truckless travel trailers later in this article. As far as other costs go, consider how much food you will need to bring, how much gas you will need to travel to your campsite, and any camping equipment that you wish to purchase or rent. Once you finalize your budget, you can move on to planning your activities!


Although it depends on your destination, there is a wide variety of activities you can participate in during your Memorial Day weekend camping trip. If you’re camping near a lake or large pond, swimming is always a great option to cool off on your Memorial Day getaway. If you want to spend your weekend staying active and enjoying all that the outdoors have to offer, you may want to spend some time on the hiking or biking trails. And, of course, no Memorial Day camping trip is complete without a big cookout. Whatever you prefer, we’re confident that you can make this year’s camping trip the best Memorial Day weekend yet.

Choosing Your Camper

As we said before, we’re going to take some time to talk about the lightweight campers you can take out for Memorial Day weekend. Truckless travel trailers are an excellent option for weekend getaways like this because of their compact, lightweight design. These campers can be towed by almost any vehicle, hence the word “truckless.” You won’t need a sizeable heavy-duty truck to tow these trailers. Another great thing about truckless travel trailers is their ease of use. They make great first-time campers for beginners looking to break into the RV camping lifestyle. Regardless of your experience level, we’re confident that you can find the right truckless travel trailer for you to ensure you have the best camping experience possible.

There are many great campers to choose from, so where do you even start? Right here, of course! Here we’ve highlighted two of the best options available, but if you’re interested in more, check out the video below! Any one of these would make a great addition to your Memorial Day weekend camping experience, and we’re sure that you can find one that will fit your style and needs.

Happier Camper HC1 2022

We’ve mentioned the Happier Camper in a previous blog post, but with the release of their new 2022 model, it’s worth bringing up again. The HC1 micro-camper is utterly modern with an undeniably retro feel. It’s versatile, lightweight, and perfect for any camping enthusiast. But what sets the HC1 apart is the Adaptiv modular design inside. Not entirely in love with the default layout? You can change it! The Adaptiv design uses the grooves in the floor to allow you to shift things around and change the interior however you see fit. It’s the ultimate micro-camper that is built to adapt to all of your needs.

Not only is it perfectly adaptable to any style, but the HC1 is also so compact that it can fit in a single parking space! And it only weighs 1,100 pounds, making it easy for almost any vehicle to tow. They are expertly designed to suit your needs wherever you go. There is a reason they call it the Happier Camper.

Forest River Rockwood Geo-Pro 12RK

The Forest River Rockwood Geo-Pro 12RK is a fantastic micro-camper that is sure to impress. It comes with many great features, including sleeping space that can comfortably fit up to two people, storage capabilities, and even a little kitchenette which you can access from the outside of the rear of the unit. Like the HC1, it is small and compact, able to fit almost anywhere you’ll need it to. It’s also incredibly lightweight, sitting at only 1,200 pounds, towable by just about any vehicle.
