Ultra light or ultra lite travel trailers weigh less than other options. Their light weight makes them great for towing with a vehicle you already own, like an SUV. Designed specifically to be light and aerodynamic, ultra lite travel trailers are a wonderful option for easy towing and conserving gas.
What is an ultra lite travel trailer?
An ultra lite or ultra-light travel trailer is any travel trailer designed to be both lightweight to tow and more aerodynamic than a typical travel trailer. Ultra lite RVs typically use lighter, still-durable materials for construction, inside and out. This helps keep them light enough to be towed by a variety of vehicles, from SUVs to trucks. Heartland has ultra-light travel trailers with dry weights starting under 3,700 lbs.

What are the benefits of an ultralite travel trailer RV?
The biggest benefit of an ultra light travel trailer is that it’s extremely light to tow. Ultralite travel trailers can contain the best features of other travel trailer models. You’ll find a wide range of beds, floor plan layouts, and amenities in ultra light travel trailers. For instance, our lightest Pioneer Trail travel trailer can also sleep up to eight people. Perfect for bringing the whole family!
Ultralite travel trailers are also specially designed to be more aerodynamic. So they’re not just lighter on the ground, but provide less drag in the wind when you’re towing. They’re also built with lighter materials, such as our Azdel composite side walls. Azdel walls are thinner than traditional materials but better at insulating against noise, bad weather and extreme temperatures. They’re perfect for reducing the weight of a lightweight travel trailer for towing.
