Cougar Travel Trailers: What to Consider
Since the 1970s, cougar travel trailers have been a popular choice among RV enthusiasts. Whether you are looking for an adventure or just want to spend some time traveling in style and comfort, these vehicles can offer both! But with so many different models out there, it’s hard to know which one is right for you.
So what should you look for in a cougar travel trailer? Here are some of the most important considerations when shopping.
Where do you plan on traveling? Do you want something that’s small and easy to drive or would you prefer something big with more space inside? If it is going to be your primary vehicle, than safety features like ABS will make a difference; if not, then fuel economy might be more relevant.
Do you need any special amenities from outside power sources (e.g., electric hookups) to anything inside the RV itself (e.g., satellite TV)? Are there things about these extras that may affect how much room they take up (i.e., an air conditioner taking up space that is otherwise unavailable)?
How long do you want the trailer to be? This will affect how much it costs, but also various other aspects of its design. Longer trailers allow for more storage and sometimes air conditioning units or a larger engine; shorter ones are cheaper, use less gas, and may have lower insurance rates. But whichever length you choose, remember that cougars come in all sorts of shapes too: some include four wheel drive while others boast three bedrooms!
Also, take in consideration what you need to tow it with. Maybe a pickup truck is more your speed or maybe an SUV would be better suited for the job…
So, are cougars right for you? The answer will depend on all sorts of factors: where you plan to go and what amenities matter most to you! But whatever decision, make sure that it’s one worth traveling in style.
