The comfort of Trailer Tents and Folding Campers

Getting into the great outdoors could not be easier with a trailer tent or folding camper from the UK’s top trailer tent specialist ‘Camperlands’.

The UK has much to offer, including super countryside, excellent sea views and cute chocolate box villages. Touring caravans, motorhomes and campervans are often considered to be in the bracket of ‘camping’, which for many is widely known as a fantastic way to fully immerse yourself into the countryside, enjoy nature and get off the beaten path, but also, unfortunately, is associated with uncomfortable sleeping arrangements, which tends to put a lot of people off.

But, imagine if you could enjoy all the benefits of camping, but with home comforts; an actual mattress to sleep on, a sofa to relax and enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine, an indoor kitchen AND a table for eating meals, it’s camping but comfortable! Trailer tents are easy to put up, and everything can be kept inside, ready to connect to the back of the car at short notice.

The trailer tent offers a tent-like structure with a more rigid and substantial base. Modern models are far easier to erect, and add-on awnings can double the floor area. Mains electric packs can also be connected to give you power while camping (to charge phones and enjoy mains lighting) 



For those with limited budgets, new trailer tents can be bought for less than £6,000, and pre-owned are cheaper still. Then you have the folding camper, which is basically a semi-rigid body used in caravan construction and often has a well-equipped built-in kitchen and heating and wired for mains electrics. Say goodbye to expensive nightly hotel fees whilst touring the UK!

If you are interested in having a look for yourself, take a trip down to Camperlands UK in Manchester, where owner Dominic Ryder and his very knowledgeable team can show you various models, both folded away (in trailer mode) and set up ready for camping, climb inside and imagine enjoying weekends and breaks away, enjoying the countryside in comfort.


Camperlands Wythenshawe premises have a large showroom with new and used trailer tents on display. Dominic has been in business for many years and is highly knowledgeable about trailer tents and folders. He also sells two micro caravans by Campmaster at affordable prices. 



Established in 1968, Camperlands is one of the UK’s leading camping equipment and outdoor accessories retailer. Customers travel from all over the UK to buy from Camperlands; they offer an all-around service including sales, repairs, and an online accessory shop, and they also have a large backup of spares to buy using a click-and-collect system.

As well as stocking hundreds of items for caravanners and motorhome users, their online shop also stocks solar panels and awnings. There is plenty of customer parking. In the summer months, Dominic likes to put up displays of trailer tents outside to give buyers an idea of how trailer tent holidays and weekend breaks can be so relaxing, with staff demonstrating how to put up a trailer tent and pack away again. 


The days of carry-on camping films showing this form of break in amusing ways are long gone with the modern ways of manufacture and materials. With many people having limited storage at home for caravans or motorhomes, trailer tents offer a space-saving alternative. They can be easily stored in a garage, and some actually can be stood upright! 

So, for those who may have thought about camping but want a little more comfort, then Camperlands can be relied on to show you the virtues of this lifestyle. Yes, the days of a gas stove, one burner and a bucket have moved on! Camperlands stock everything that you will need and all at competitive prices too. 

If you’re looking for the ultimate freedom in holiday and weekend breaks, the expert team at Camperlands can show you all sorts of makes and models so that you can get out there and explore. Camperlands is easy to get to, and you will be amazed just how much choice they have – a visit is a must!
