It’s no secret in our household that my wife likes her comforts (think bubble baths, feather pillows and running water). It was this love of all things luxury that saw us invest in a camper trailer when our youngest was just a few months old. 10 years on and it is still as functional as the day we got it (although we don’t use the walls and annexes as much as when we had 2 small children both running in opposite directions).
We’ve considered selling it as it only gets used once every couple of years, but the resale value would not be worth anything near the $15,000 we initially paid. While it’s possible to get camper trailers much cheaper than this, it’s also possible to get caught up in the options and spend way more than double this amount depending on your requirements.
