RV Motorhome, Trailer and Camper Transport
If you’re new to RVing, it can be difficult to distinguish between the different types of vehicles. RVs, travel trailers and campers can be confusing terms as they all refer to types of recreational vehicles. RVs come in many shapes and sizes, as do travel trailers and campers. An RV can be anything from a small pop-up camper to large luxury motorhomes that are equipped with all the amenities of home. Travel trailers and campers are usually smaller than an RV but will have everything you need for camping trips and vacations.
It’s important to understand the differences between all three, especially when it comes time to transporting. Although these terms — among others — are often used interchangeably, there are some notable differences.
RV motorhomes are typically some sort of motorized unit that include a cooking area, sleeping areas and sanitation facilities
Imagine a mobile home on wheels. RV motorhomes can reach up to 40ft long or even more in some cases. These recreational vehicles are perfect for those traveling to far away places and want the convenience of a home.
There are different types of RV motorhomes, class A, B, and C. Class A RV’s are the largest and most luxurious of the three. This type of RV motorhome has all the amenities of a house such as a full kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. A class B RV motorhome is smaller than a class A and typically doesn’t have a built-in bathroom. A class C RV motorhome is the smallest and most compact type of RV motorhome.
RVs are loaded on to a wedge or flatbed trailer for transport. There is no towing involved. All four wheels of the RV motorhome are off the ground and on the trailer. The RV is then safely secured and transported to your destination.
This is a service where RVs are driven from point A to point B. A fully licensed and certified driver gets behind the wheel and drives the RV to its destination. Since this type of transportation is done by actually driving the RV, some wear and tear is to be expected.
Trailers are basically an unpowered vehicle towed by another
Trailers are used for a combination of things, but generally the function of a trailer is to haul something. Trailers come in many different shapes and sizes. The important thing to know about a trailer is that they are not motorized.
There are different types of trailers, the most common type being travel trailers and cargo trailers. Other types of trailers include utility trailers, boat trailers, and camping trailers. A travel or camper trailer is like having your own small house on wheels that you can take with you wherever you go. A cargo or utility trailer is more for hauling items, equipment or some type of cargo.
Trailers can be towed by a car, truck, or SUV. Most often, a dually pickup truck with a matching bumper pull, fifth-wheel hitch or pintle hook will hook up and tow the trailer. The towing vehicle must have the proper towing capacity in order to tow the trailer.
Trailer is lifted and loaded on to another wedge or flatbed trailer for transport. There is no hooking and towing involved. After it’s been loaded it is then secured and safely hauled to your destination.
Camper trailers are another type of trailer that are towed by another vehicle. These campers are often small and compact
What sets camper trailers apart is that they only have room for sleeping and storage. There’s no cooking area or bathroom like there would be in an RV.
Camper trailers are great for those weekend getaways. They go by many names like Pop-Ups, Tear Drops, and Instant Campers. They are inexpensive and easy to tow behind most cars. Since it’s just the camping essentials inside the camper, there’s no real need for a large tow vehicle.
Camper trailers are towed using a truck or a vehicle with enough tow power. It is important to know the weight capacity of both the tow vehicle and the trailer to safely tow it. In addition to the tow capacity, the towing hitch on the tow vehicle must be the correct size and weight capacity.
Camper trailers can also be hauled on a flatbed trailer. This is a great option for when the camper is not in road worthy conditions. For example, if the camper has a broken axle, it can be hauled on a trailer to the nearest repair shop or its destination.
Fifth Wheel Transport
Fifth wheels typically have more amenities than a travel trailer, such as a refrigerator, shower and bathroom
This means a fifth wheel unit will be bigger (up to 45ft in length), heavier (up to 25,000 pounds) and more difficult to move. There is a couple of different ways to transport a fifth wheel, however; all will require truck and/ or trailer.
Fifth Wheel Towing
This is the most common way to transport a fifth wheel. A tow truck will attach to the front of the fifth wheel and tow it along behind. This is a relatively easy process, but it can be dangerous if done incorrectly. The truck towing the fifth wheel will need a special fifth wheel hitch attachment and meet the minimum requirements to safely do the job, most often, a 1 ton dually pickup truck will do.
Fifth Wheel Hauling
The second option is to use an RGN trailer to transport the fifth wheel. This process will require a way to load and unload the fifth wheel onto and off the trailer. In some cases, a truck or crane can be used to load and unload. This option is more complicated, so it is important to understand it can also be dangerous if done incorrectly.
Why Should I Get My RV Motorhome or Trailer Hauled?
There are a few reasons why you might choose to have your RV or travel trailer hauled
For one, when you hire a company to haul your RV or travel trailer, they will take care of all the details. Secondly, having a company haul your RV or trailer means that you don’t have to worry about the wear and tear that comes with towing or driving it yourself. Finally, hauling can be a lot safer – especially if you’re not used to towing or driving a large unit for hundreds of miles.
What to Look for In An RV Transport Company?
Finding the best RV transport company to move your RV can be difficult, especially with the number of companies online
Doing some research on potential RV transporters is always the best step in finding the perfect RV mover. Here is a list of some additional things you can look for in a top rated RV transport company.
In addition to registration, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires all registered RV movers to be fully licensed, bonded and insured. Generally, an insurance policy for RV transport will cover damage to the RV caused by driver negligence.
When you hire someone to tow a trailer, be sure to check into the company’s years of experience. The best RV shipping companies have the experience, knowledge and resources to handle any RV move. An experienced company will provide the most stress free RV transportation service available.
Look for an RV moving company who offers “the best way” not “the cheapest way” to move your RV. Companies with cheap rates tend to also have poor quality of service. When you compare the benefits of hiring a reputable RV transport company with the cost, you will find its value.
RV Transport & Driveaway
Class A motor home will generally be loaded and shipped on a lowboy trailer while smaller class B or class c motor homes transport on flatbeds or wedge trailers.
Prepare RV & Travel Trailer for Shipping
We ask that you carefully prepare your RV or travel trailer for transport
Following these simple steps will help make sure that there are no safety incidents or delays during your RV transport.
Check your trailer lights to ensure they are working properly. ( brake, turn, clearance, license plate etc.) Trailer Wheels & Axles: Inspect the wheels and axles on your trailer for proper lubrication. It is recommended that bearings, bearing seals and bearing cups on a trailer be greased every 12 months or 12,000 miles.
Do NOT overload your RV trailer. Check the gross trailer weight rating (GTWR) of your trailer to prevent overloading.
All trailers have a designated hitch type depending on their gross trailer weight. It is important that your trailer have the proper hitch type to safely tow.
Any personal items inside your trailer or RV must be properly secured. Make sure cabinet doors are closed, locked if possible and any items that are not mounted, be removed or placed in secure area in the trailer.
Disable your trailer’s power supply.
Gas tanks, propane tanks, ammunition or any possible dangerous materials should be removed prior to transport. Our carriers can be fined if such items are found inside trailer while in transport.
