Hard or soft?
The next question is whether to go for a hard-floor or soft-floor camper. Hard-floor, flip-style campers are fast becoming very popular, however, they are better suited to couples or families with just one child, as the floor area inside is usually small and won’t allow for more than one extra bed in most cases. They do, however, have two huge benefits, one being that the set-up time is on average a lot quicker, the second being you don’t have to worry as much with water flowing under your camper if the weather sets in, as you are a few inches off the ground. For this reason they are a great choice for tourers who are setting up and packing up on a daily basis.
Soft-floor campers are a great choice for larger families and those who just like a bit more room, with many brands having a choice of tent size so that you can sleep a number of people inside on stretchers or inflatable mattresses. Of course, mum and dad will have the comfort of a double or queen bed, with many models having a full inner-spring mattress, just like your one at home. As mentioned previously, they usually take longer to set up; however, there are a few brands available that allow it to be done in less than 10 minutes if you are not looking to set up the awning.
