For families looking to explore our country in style, or couples looking for an affordable way to vacation year-round, camper trailers are a classic solution.
But towing a huge trailer – or a tiny home – isn’t always convenient. That’s why the Meerkat, a new lightweight mini trailer with room for two, stands out from other campers.
Little Guy trailers, the brand behind the Meerkat, make a variety of pint-sized campers that trade room to stretch out for ease to tow your mobile home from place to place.
The Meerkat’s website boasts that the 900-pound trailer is light enough to be towed by just about any car (or even pushed into place by hand) and fits inside a standard garage.
Inside, the wrap-around couch folds out to make sleeping space for two, while hidden features like a hanging closet, porta potty, sink, and icebox help you travel comfortably.
While the trailer has a small footprint, there are sizeable windows on each side and a collapsible roof canopy, so you can enjoy the view wherever your park your Meerkat. Or, when the weather is nice, you can relax in the shade of the pull-out awning.
If you’re interested in the Meerkat, prices start at $17,820 for this trendy little trailer, and there are other models to browse – including teardrop trailers and solo sleepers – on Little Guy’s website.
