In this article, we’ll cover 13 of the best travel trailers under 7,000 lbs and look at the variety of features and layouts available. Travel trailers offer many benefits. They are more comfortable and secure than tent camping, but more versatile and often less expensive than motor homes.
Many trailers are light enough that they can be towed by small trucks or even SUVs, so you may not even have to invest in a new tow vehicle. So, what are the best travel trailers under 7,000 lbs? Let’s dive in.
13 best travel trailers under 7,000 lbs:
1. Cruiser Embrace EL260
UVW: 5,904 lbs
The Embrace measures nearly 31’ long and can sleep 5-6 people between the walk-around king bed, a sofa sleeper, and a dinette that converts to a bunk. It has one big electric slide-out, a kitchenette with a three-burner cook top and an oven, and a full dry bathroom.
The Embrace also has a 19’ awning that shades an external cook space. There are LED lights built into the awning for some evening ambiance. The trailer comes standard with a GoPower solar prep package and an air conditioner.
Optional features include an LED TV, a power tongue jack, a bumper-mount propane grill, and a second air conditioning unit.

10. Rockwood Geo Pro 19TH
UVW: 3,407 lbs

A dry bath and kitchenette fill the front end of the trailer. Outside, a 12’ awning increases the living space and two large exterior storage compartments can hold extra gear.
Since this trailer does not have a fixed bed, it’s probably most practical for weekends or other short trips where bringing along outdoor gear takes priority over long-term comfort.

UVW: 5,326 lbs
The Alta trailer can sleep up to 8 people between the front queen Murphy bed, two stacked double bunks, and a convertible dinette. However, it would be a tight squeeze since the trailer is just over 28 feet long and doesn’t have any slide-outs for extra interior space.
The trailer has a dry bath, a kitchenette, and an outdoor cook space with a pull out grill, fridge, propane connection, and an 18’ awning. There is also an outdoor TV hookup as well as an indoor entertainment center.

Choosing the Best Lightweight Travel Trailer
All of these travel trailers under 7,000 lbs are great options, but if I had to pick my favorite, it’d probably be the Forest River Flagstaff Micro-Lite. Traveling with a huge group in a RV isn’t really my vibe, and the Flagstaff is outfitted perfectly as a luxurious space for a couple.
I also appreciate the attention to detail and the dual external doors so even if my travel partner was showering or using the bathroom, I could still access the entire trailer without having to traipse through the bathroom. Genius.
Plus, a slide-out to increase the area of the bedroom sounds so nice. After 3+ years of having to climb over my partner to get out of bed in our skoolie, I would kill for a walk-around bed!
