Here’s the first in our series of RV tours from the Florida RV Supershow. We start off by showing you 7 small RV campers that would be great for weekends and short camping trips. Models featured in the video include Airstream Bambi, Nest and BaseCamp, NOBO by Forest River, MyPod by Little Guy Trailers, the ALiner Classic popup, and a Lance Truck Camper 855S.
While we obviously were unable to cover everything and see all of the 1,550 RVs at the show, this should give you a good cross section.
The smallest of the bunch, the MyPod by Little Guy Trailers is basically a simple. lightweight teardrop trailer with a 100% fiberglass molded body on a sturdy frame. It’s super light weight at 630 lbs dry, and tongue weight of just 110 lbs.
You can tow small RV campers like this behind just about anything! Basic, but still better than a tent! MSRP is $11,999. Watch the video tour to see the Mypod.
Built on a cargo trailer, the NOBO 10.6 – No Boundaries – by Forest River is a lightweight trailer that can be towed by both 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder tow vehicles. Bigger tires and more clearance make it easier to take the NOBO off road to get to more remote locations. One of the more unique small RV campers.
A Rooftop tent, 270 degree Batwing awning and storage roof racks make it ideal for any outdoor enthusiast wanting to take along sporting equipment like kayaks, bikes, SUP’s, surfboards, skis, and fishing gear. The NOBO was named an RV Business Top Debut for 2018 and RV Pro Best of Show for 2018. MSRP of $22,000. Watch the video for the NOBO tour.
The Aliner Classic Hard-sided popup camper is their most popular model with it’s versatility, adaptability and comfort. The Aliner has higher clearance and tires to allow for more easy access to off-road locations and comes with all the basics but can be optioned with a whole range of additions.
Small RV campers like this can be easy to store. As a guide, the MSRP is around $15,000 – 20,000, depending on how it’s optioned. Watch the video for the ALiner tour.
The Airstream Bambi Sport 16RB is an adorable little travel trailer abounding in cuteness! It has style, lots of windows and all the basics to enjoy a weekend or short vacation. Sleeps up to 4 in these small RV campers. Of course, being Airstream, it’s much more expensive than the other options around. The MSRP starts at $48,900. This show edition was priced at $51,484 with a show price of $46,991. Watch the video for the Airstream Bambi tour.
The Airstream Nest 16U is a new addition to the Airstream family and proving to be popular, with 150 of the 200 units scheduled for production already sold! This small RV camper comes in two floor plans, sleeps two, and makes smart use of the space with a wet bath, kitchen and flexible dining and sleeping spaces. MSRP starts at $45,900. The show unit we saw was around $47,234 and selling at the show for $39,995. Watch the video for the Airstream Nest tour.
Airstream Base Camp
The Airstream Base Camp 16X is not new but continues to be popular as a sturdy and attractive weekender for those who like to get out there and take their outdoor and sporting gear along.
This small RV camper has some handy storage compartments too, one even comes with a lock. It comes with all the basics – a bathroom, a kitchen and a dining area that turns into a bed. Lots of windows too to let in the light and takes in the views. MSRP of the unit we saw at the show was $44,000. Show sale $42,000. Watch the video for the tour.
Lance Truck Camper
The Lance Truck Camper 855S is designed to be mounted into short bed trucks. What makes this truck camper unique is a dinette slide out that expands the living space. It makes nifty use of the small space, maximizing every inch for functionality and storage.
It’s also a 4-season camper to you can take it out in any kind of weather conditions. They didn’t display the MSRP at the show but a quick Google search found prices on RVTrader for around $40,000 for the 2018 model and closeout prices around $35,000. Watch the video for the Lance 855S tour.
So Many RVs
We spent an entire week at the Tampa, Florida RV Supershow from January 14-20 and had an absolute blast! We were on the go from 8am to 6pm every day, capturing video, photos, interviews, and doing tours of everything from tiny popups to big luxury buses.
As you might imagine, it was literally impossible to see all of the 1,550 RVs at the show, but we covered as many as we possibly could across all categories and have put together a selection from each for you to check out and get a feel for the diversity of units at the show.
