Red Bluff Chalet Travel Trailers
Northern California is a camper's paradise. From Red Bluff you can head East to Mount Lassen, Hat Creek and Burney or West to the coast, and Weaverville or North for lake camping near Whiskeytown or Shasta Lakes or head further to Mount Shasta. Whichever direction you go you are going to hit mountains and winding roads. While beautiful to look at, these can be a bit tough to drive when pulling a large travel trailer. Because of this many people like to pull smaller trailers or sometimes tent trailers.
Tent trailers have a large advantage over normal hard sided trailers in terms of being light weight, having a low profile an easy to tow. The drop down roof of this style of trailer means that there is less surface for wind to catch, as well as making it easy to look over while you are driving, letting you see vehicles coming in up behind you. Tent trailers have their disadvantages though. If you happen to get a little rain while you are camping any tent has a tendency to sweat. That means is if you touch the side of the tent while sleeping you're going to get soaked.
Tent trailers are also a little less secure. It's a lot easier for a raccoon or other animal to find a way through a canvas side than it is a hard side. This at times makes is necessary to drop the top down and seal up you trailer before you leave for any hunting, fishing or hiking excursions you might have planed.
Chalet Travel Trailers
There is a better option though! Chalet Travel trailers combines the best of both worlds. Chalet trailers are hard sided travel trailers that can collapse down like a tent trailer. They have hard, insolated walls making them easy to heat and cool (they come with ducted heating and some with air conditioning).
Their hard sides make them more secure against wind, rain and animals and give a surface to attach real windows instead of clear soft plastic which is hard to see out of. Many designs include sun roofs, showers, bathrooms, bunk beds a kitchen storage room and as mentioned before, ducted heating and air conditioning. All of this coming in a light weight package that can be easily set up by one person in just a couple minutes.
Chalets trailers light weight, low profile design can be towed behind most cars, trucks and minivans easily, unlike standard trailers. With the low profile design comes a decrease surface to catch wind. If you've ever towed a trailer on I-5 on a windy day you can understand why this is an issue. Personally I have been slowed from 65 to 40 as fast as if I slammed on the breaks when a wind gust hit the front of my trailer. If I had a Chalet trailer I the time, I barely would have felt the wind as it passed over my pickup and over the top of the Chalet Trailer.
Chalet trailers are also easy to find in Northern California. Just head 30 minutes North of Red Bluff to Redding and stop by North Valley Autos. Dan always has a selection of Chalet RVs to choose from. Whether you are looking for a used Chalet Trailer or a new one North Valley Autos is the place to go in Northern California.
