Even our towable trailers are getting smart. With innovative aerodynamic designs, rugged suspension systems, and wide-open skylights, these four high-tech trailers—from modest to totally excessive—are ready for the open road.
2014 Airstream Sport 22FB Travel Trailer ($48,891)
Airstream assembled this towable trailer like an airplane, using riveted aluminum panels. The Sport 22FB has a low center of gravity and an aerodynamic shape—the company estimates a fuel savings of up to 30 percent compared to other travel trailers. Perks include a glass plate that covers the cookstove and a convection microwave. Plus, all the exterior and interior parts are recyclable.
2014 Winnebago Micro Minnie ($TBD)
New this summer, this fiberglass pull-behind camper is a durable, streamlined sleeping compartment. The Micro Minnie uses a tankless water heater, and the dual-axle design means if you blow a tire, you can keep towing until you get to the repair shop.
2014 Moby1 XTR ($18,500)
This teardrop trailer is designed for rugged off-roading. You can adjust the suspension to handle smooth roads or rocky terrain in the foothills. There’s also an option to add a tent to the roof ($2,400) to increase the total sleeping capacity to seven, and another option to add solar panels ($350 each).
2015 Jayco Jay Flight 32RLDS ($TBD)
This massive 32-foot travel trailer features some of the most advanced trailer tech on the market. The powered awning has a row of LED lights for nighttime cookouts, there’s a skylight on the roof for stargazing, and the sink includes a pull-out sprayer (all part of the new Elite package). When you tow, a unique stabilizer system reduces rattling and smooths out the ride.
