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.
