You might be traveling with the use of a travel trailer. Yet, you want something that kind of has it all. One of those things you don’t want to compromise on is a bathroom. You want everything: a toilet, sink, and shower. However, you want a lightweight travel trailer.
So, what is the lightest trailer with a bathroom?
The lightest trailer with a bathroom is the Safari Condo R1723 weighing in at 1867 pounds. It has everything you need for a basic bathroom setup. This means you have a toilet, sink, and a shower.
From the outside looking in, the design and the aesthetics of the trailer look pretty sleek. Even for its small size, it’s quite a head turner. The other trailers that we’ve looked through were almost double the weight or no less than 2000 pounds (with the exception of the Safari Condo R1723).
We have searched through a whole list of travel trailers each with their own bathroom set up. Before making our selection, we had one criteria to go by: it had to include the three major bathroom essentials – sink, toilet and shower.
Some of the lighter weight trailers had a toilet and a sink, but no shower. In the interest of helping you find a complete bathroom set, we’ve eliminated the trailers that had no shower. From there, it was finding the lightest weight trailer possible.
Now that we’ve unveiled our selection, let’s further discuss the Safari Condo R1723.
How Long is the Safari Condo R1723?
The Safari Condo R1723 comes in two different lengths: 13 and 15 feet. Even with a two foot difference between the two, you still get plenty of space to work with. Especially if you are camping out or using the trailer for a cross-country road trip.
You can decide on the length based on your personal needs and preferences. However, most people usually opt for the 13-footer since it’s the standard option.
Key Features of the Safari Condo R1723
The Safari Condo R1723 has the following features that you might be looking for:
As always, you’ll have two water tanks: your gray and black water tanks. The gray freshwater tank will be up to 13 gallons while your black tank reserved for waste water will be approximately 11 gallons.
Weight, Height, and Length
As mentioned before, the Safari Condo R1723 weighs in at around 1867 pounds. The height of the trailer is about 83.5 feet. This will make it easier to fit in your garage if you decide to store it for the winter.
Once again, you have two lengths to choose from: 13 or 15 feet.
To make sure what we mean by bathroom setup, a good lightweight trailer should have the following: a toilet, sink, and a shower. The Safari Condo R1723 has all three.
This means you won’t have to deal with an exterior shower hookup. This is a common thing to do if you have a trailer that has a toilet and a sink, but no shower. We wanted to make it easier for you to have it all and save money in the process.
At the same time, you might be looking for added privacy as well. Especially when you want to take a shower inside the comfort of your own travel trailer rather than outside. If this is one thing you don’t want to compromise on, this trailer might be the best option.
We don’t blame you a single bit for wanting that privacy.
This has an aluminum frame. It’s quite strong compared to the aluminum frames of ages past. The frame gives it that sleek, modern look. Speaking of modern looks, the interior of the trailer looks pretty nice as well. But we digress. Let’s get back to the aluminum frame itself, shall we?
The good news is if it somehow gets damaged due to an accident, you can be able to replace the frame yourself. No need for a professional to get the job done (unless you absolutely have to).
Because of its aluminum frame, it might be one of the affordable options for you compared to trailers that have a fiberglass frame.
This has electric brakes, which is standard equipped. It will stop whenever you stop moving while you’re on the road. Further proof that the trailer itself may be one of the easiest that you can tow.
Want to open and close the roof with ease, you can do that with electric actuators. You can open the roof on a nice sunny day and let in the fresh air. Couple that with a few open windows and it will be enough to allow for better ventilation.
When the roof is opened, you’ll make your space a lot more comfortable. You can lounge around and enjoy a relaxing day when there’s nothing else going on. It’s just you and the outdoors.
That is unless of course you bring a couple friends along, it will be a relaxing day wherever you’re all camping out.
If you are looking for the lightest trailer with a bathroom, the Safari Condo R1723 is perhaps the best option. You’ll definitely love getting a lot of this trailer, even for the price that it’s going for.
If you are on a budget, you have to check it out for yourself. It seems like you’re getting a whole lot for a steal of a price. Actually, you really are.
It’s got the complete bathroom set that you need. You won’t have to rely on purchasing an external shower separately and mess with the hookup. We hope this ends up being one of your best purchases for a travel trailer.
