The nuCamp TAG XL Boondock is the first and the smallest camper on our list of the top travel trailers under $30,000. This camper packs a lot of bang for your buck into a tiny package.

Larger than a standard queen, the bed measures 70 by 78-inches. This very comfortably sleeps two, and arguably for a family like mine, up to 4, including small children. Everyone will be able to enjoy a view of the night sky with the large stargazer window offered in the TAG XL Boondock.

Despite its small size, this classic teardrop travel trailer under $30,000 has a lot of personality. You can customize the overall look with your choice of three graphics, four accent colors, and two sidewall color options. Your choices are not limited to appearance; as a travel trailer weighing under 3,000 lbs. you also have the flexibility to tow it behind nearly any mid-sized vehicle.

The Boondock option in the TAG XL makes this teardrop trailer even more versatile. The off-road tires increased ground clearance and pitched axle means this camper can go anywhere. The roof rack also means taking bikes or other toys along on your off-grid adventures. The reinforced fenders on the wheels even eliminate the need for a ladder to access the roof rack.

The Intech Flyer Discover is one of the most versatile travel trailers under $30,000. This micro-light toy hauler has an all-aluminum welded frame. The rugged construction means that the Intech Flyer Discover is well suited to off-road adventures.

As a travel trailer under 6,000 lbs., this camper is small enough to eliminate the need for a massive tow vehicle.

This teardrop toy hauler allows you to bring along a dirt bike or ATV and the whole family. One bed fold-out is standard with the Intech Flyer Discover. You double the sleeping capacity to four when you add the optional camp side fold-out.

This travel trailer under $30,000 is highly customizable. In addition to having a choice in the number of fold-outs sleeping spaces, you will also have five exterior color options to choose from.

If the interior space isn’t enough, you have the option of adding a 10 ft. power awning. Not only that, but the option for a roof rack means that you can transport even more toys. Kayaking and four-wheeling on the same day anyone?

The Casita Freedom Deluxe is a molded fiberglass travel trailer for under $30,000. Constructed of molded fiberglass, the Casita Freedom Deluxe is extremely durable and long-lasting.

The fiberglass construction means this travel trailer is both lightweight and aerodynamic. This makes it exceptionally easy and fuel-efficient to tow.

This travel trailer under $30,000 is unique in that all Casitas are customizable per every customer order. You will have your choice of many standard and optional features. You can choose your decor, appliances, electronics, suspension, and other amenities.

The Deluxe model places a wet bath in front of the coach and a sizable black holding tank. If you do not mind using the campground’s bathhouse, choose the Standard version that places a bench and removable upper bunk in the front of the trailer for more sitting/sleeping space.

Even though each Casita Freedom Deluxe is custom-made, the main features remain the same. This travel trailer under $30,000 comes standard with a convertible dinette that converts to a double bed.

The Keystone Springdale 1760BH is a great family travel trailer for under $30,000. This camper offers five sleeping spaces. Although the Keystone Springdale 1760BH is a travel trailer under 22 ft., the floorplan accommodates rear bunks.

Combined with the convertible dinette and full-sized bed, the whole family will enjoy a comfortable place to sleep in this travel trailer.

This Keystone Springdale is also the first camper on our list of travel trailers under $30,000 to boast a dinette slide-out. This open floorplan and tons of storage options make this travel trailer feel larger than it is.

Surprisingly, the Keystone Springdale 1760BH has a low GVWR for a bunkhouse travel trailer with a slide-out. As a travel trailer weighing under 5,000 lbs. this camper could be towed by many mid-sized vehicles.

It is not just the price point but also the size, weight, and sleeping capacity that makes this camper an excellent choice for families looking for an SUV-friendly travel trailer under $30,000.

5. Gulf Stream Innsbruck 26BHG

The Gulf Stream Innsbruck 26BHG has the highest sleeping capacity of any of the campers on our list of top travel trailers under $30,000. This travel trailer sports two full-size bunk beds and a queen bed in front behind a privacy wall.

If these six permanent sleeping spaces are not enough, a jackknife sofa and convertible dinette also add an extra four sleeping spaces.

The floorplan in the Gulf Stream Innsbruck 26BHG is interesting because this is a non-slide-out travel trailer. Despite the absence of a slide-out, RV customer reviews continually mention how incredible the width of the layout’s center aisle is and how comfortable the interior RV experience feels.

Set up and take down are easier because, with no slide to worry about, this travel trailer is ready to go as soon as you park it. Also, without the slide, this Innsbruck can have a longer length because it does not have the added weight of the bump-out room.

The restroom is easily accessible any time you park, but it also houses a tub shower. Any parent of a small child knows what a convenience a tub shower can be. This feature, combined with the large sleeping capacity, makes the Gulf Stream Innsbruck a great family option on our list of travel trailers under $30,000.

The Jayco Jay Flight SLX 183RB is a great compact travel trailer for under $30,000. This Jayco is not only affordable, but as a travel trailer under 4,500 lbs., this camper is also easily towable.

The layout of this Jayco is very nice. Despite its small square footage, the Jayco Jay Flight offers a privacy half wall separating the bedroom area from the living space. The dinette slide-out also allows for more room to move around.

Perhaps the best part of the 183RB’s floorplan is the rear bathroom. Spanning the entire width of the camper, this bathroom is one of the most spacious you will find in a travel trailer under $30,000.

The Forest River Surveyor 19BHLE is another great family camper on our list of top travel trailers under $30,000. This camper boasts several features that are hard to find in a travel trailer under 25 ft.

The shorter length and low GVWR also mean that the Forest River Surveyor is a great option for those who prefer not to have a large tow vehicle.

One of the features we love in this small travel trailer under $30,000 is the outdoor kitchen. Complete with a spray port, prep shelf, and griddle, you will have everything to make a great meal.

The griddle, in particular, is an excellent addition since it is easy to clean and more versatile than a grill. In this outdoor kitchen, you can whip up anything from scrambled eggs to ribeye steaks.

The Forest River Surveyor also sleeps up to six people. Unlike other campers at this price point, this camper has a residential queen-sized bed and adult-sized bunks. Not only will you be able to sleep the whole family, but everyone should get a good night’s rest on these large beds.

Best Toy Hauler Trailer Under $30,000

The KZ Escape Hatch E17 is a unique addition to our list of top travel trailers under $30,000. We like this camper because the hatch in the back makes it a toy hauler travel trailer.

The KZ Escape Hatch is not the best choice for hauling ATVs or other motorized adventure toys. Yet your kayaks, electric bikes, and the like can all fit easily in this camper.

The hatch feature of this travel trailer also comes in handy when the camper is parked. The large door and accompanying screen serve as a giant picture window. You will truly be able to enjoy the fresh air and the scenery with this travel trailer under $30,000.

This 4,000 lbs. travel trailer is both lightweight and rugged. You will be able to take it just about anywhere and immerse yourself in nature once you arrive. 

If you like the KZ Escape Hatch but want one that is smaller or bigger, check out the Hatch 14, Hatch 18, or Hatch 20. Keep in mind that the price points will be different.

The Winnebago Hike H170S is a sleek little camper on our list of top travel trailers under $30,000. The modern neutral color scheme and the upgraded faucets and fixtures give this travel trailer a calming vibe. This, combined with the slide-out for the kitchen, makes this small travel trailer feel much larger.

Another feature that makes the Winnebago Hike H170s feel more spacious is the very large rear bathroom. The bathroom is almost L-shaped, taking up the entire rear of the camper and then some. Because of this, you will find an oversized vanity top and extra-large wardrobe.

While you are enjoying the interior of this modern travel trailer under $30,000, you will also appreciate the LED TV that comes standard.

The Genesis Supreme Genesis Overnighter 12-14.6 RB is the most unique camper on our list of travel trailers under $30,000. This travel trailer is a new take on the toy hauler concept. Rather than offering dual-purpose interior space, this camper has dedicated cargo space and separate living space.

The living quarters are compact but homey. It does not have the same industrial feel as the interior of most traditional toy haulers. Although unexpected, the unique layout of this travel trailer under $30,000 manages to fit all of the essentials into a small living space.

It is not often we see a refrigerator right next to the bed, but in this camper, it works. If you are like me, you might even appreciate the proximity to your midnight snack.  

This is the largest and the heaviest travel trailer under $30,000 on our list. As you might expect, the increased size also means increased carrying capacity. With over fourteen feet of space to haul your toys or passenger vehicle and a carrying capacity of over 3,000 lbs. you may be able to take multiple toys along on your travels.

What is the Best Value for the Money Camper Trailer?

What is the Best Value for the Money Camper Trailer Under 30000

One thing we came to realize as we tried to narrow down our list of top travel trailers under $30,000 is that Forest River seems to dominate this price point. While other manufacturers seem to have one, or maybe two, travel trailers under this price point, Forest River has many.

Since it would be impossible to showcase every travel trailer under $30,000 from each manufacturer, we highlighted a few of our favorites. But as we researched different options, we realized that Forest River has found a niche with travel trailers under $30,000. 

When it is something you often do, you tend to do it well, which is no different with manufacturing travel trailers. That is why we think that Forest River seems to have many options that will help you stretch $30,000 as far as it can go.

That does not mean that you cannot find the perfect travel trailer for your needs from another manufacturer. But in general, it seems that Forest River travel trailers under $30,000 consistently offer a great value.

What is the Best Month to Buy a Travel Trailer?

What is the Best Month to Buy a Travel Trailer Under 30000

With many travel trailer options under $30,000, you might be tempted to get out your checkbook right now. But perhaps one of the best ways to save money and keep your cost low is to wait for the optimal time of year to purchase a travel trailer.

When is the optimal time, you might ask? The best months to buy a travel trailer are typically October through February. This only makes sense, as winter is the least camped-in season. 

Summer months are the worst times to purchase. Since it is prime camping season, the demand for travel trailers is especially high in the summer. Spring is the second-worst time, as the weather warms and people start thinking about getting back outside. 

Fall is an ok time to buy, as camping season is winding down. But winter is even slower than fall for RV sales. While October and November might be good months to purchase, December and January are the best. Just be careful not to wait too long. While February is often slow for RV sales, it begins to pick up as the weather turns.

What if you do not want to wait for December? Keep your eyes peeled for potential deals at RV shows or when a manufacturer releases a new model. Sometimes you can even find deals from private sellers who have upgraded to a larger rig for a new season or trying to avoid paying for storage in the fall.
