Best Travel Trailers 2016, what do we think? Last year, we saw a nice selection of new models of travel trailers from some of the best travel trailer manufacturers in the industry, but now that we’ve entered the new year, we want to take a look at what we think will be some of the best travel trailers or best camping trailers in 2016. Before we begin our countdown, we wanted to give you an idea of at least a few of the things that we are looking for in order to give a traveler our Best Travel Trailer 2016 recommendation.
Travel Trailer Durability
One of the features we are looking for is durability. We want to make sure that the travel trailers, 5th wheels, or toy haulers we select are very well-built in order to handle today’s users. Users today are more than just lounging around in their trailers. They traverse rugged terrains, they expect to be able to brings their toys, and they expect their home on wheels to keep up with them. So in a nutshell, our picks had better be built strong.
Design or Else
When we looked at what we think are going to be the best camping trailers for 2016, we took a look at the exterior style, interior layout, and choice of materials and components. We wanted a trailer which we can step into that feels exciting and bold and not boring and blah. The exterior needs to standout from the pack in some way that would make it look awesome.
How Much Is That Travel Trailer?
We had to be careful with this criteria simply because in the trailer industry, you get what you pay for. We looked closely at the above two criteria but had to keep the price reasonable. Not cheap, but reasonable and it had to offer value for its price even if the price was somewhat higher than typical. You won’t find any cheap or low end travel trailers in our lineup of the best travel trailers 2016, but we guarantee, you will find some kick-ass trailer that offers a lot for the money.

We are here to offer our suggestions but like we always recommend, buying a travel trailer is a very personal decision and a very personal choice based on your needs, your taste, and your budget. So with that in mind, let’s get to it.
2016 Airstream Eddie Bauer
What do you get when you combine two American icons together in the travel trailer industry? You get one incredible and unforgettable travel trailer. With Eddie Bauer’s comfort and style with Airstream’s design and durability, you get an extra 400 cubic feet with the foldaway furniture that will give you extra space for your fishing gear, bikes, and kayaks.

The 2016 Airstream Eddie Bauer comes in two models: the 25FB and the 28FB. Both models offer a well-designed interior with premium materials and cabinetry. The interior color scheme is obviously Eddie Bauer inspired with the typical greens, browns, and other earth tones.
The exterior is as simple and elegant as can be in an Airstream. The beautiful curves which identifies Airstream as well as the shiny aluminum exterior.
We really like Airstream and though we are cognizant of the fact that they are way above your average price for a travel trailer, what you do get is outstanding quality, iconic style, and a durable, well-designed top rated travel trailer for 2016.
Weekend Warrior 2016 28W Toyhauler
Next up in our line-up of Best Travel Trailers 2016 is the Weekend Warrior 2016 28W Toy Hauler. We’ve already taken a look at one model of Weekend Warrior toy hauler and have also listed them as one of the Best Travel Trailer Brands. We picked the 28W as one of the top rated travel trailers for 2016 because of its smaller size than the one we first looked at and because of the price point at which the Weekend Warrior 28W toy hauler comes in at.
As with all Weekend Warriors, you will find only the best materials for construction and construction techniques available from a travel trailer manufacturer. Rather than us telling you all the great things about this pick, we’ll let a video from the RV Factory show you why this can be one of your favorites.
It’s hard to go wrong with any of the models that Weekend Warriors has put out for 2016. The 28W Toy Hauler is no exception and you are sure to get great value, dependability, style, and durability.
2016 White Hawk from Jayco
To round out our list of what, in our opinion, are the best travel trailers for 2016, we introduce the White Hawk from Jayco. We really like the White Hawk, and for the size of the family we have as well as the type of outdoor activities we do, the White Hawk from Jayco fits our needs perfectly.
The White Hawk is very well constructed with some advanced construction techniques engineered by Jayco. For example, on the 2016 White Hawk, you will find a custom manufactured frame that offers higher strength and durability as opposed to some manufacturers that modify or weld stock frames. Jayco screwed down their decking as opposed to some others who used staples to hold down the decking materials. In addition, Jayco uses their Magnum Truss Roof System which can withstand 4,500 lbs., showing that Jayco’s exclusive roof construction can hold a 50 percent heavier load than the competition. This strength translates into durability and is a result of superior quality construction.
As you can see from the photo above, this is a very nice looking travel trailer. Plenty of room for a family, easy on the budget, and just a great all-around travel camper. In the video below, you will see some of the product highlights of the 2016 White Hawk by Jayco.
In summary, we have picked out the top three editors’ choice for the Best Travel Trailers of 2016. Any three of these picks will provide you with an excellent, durable, and well-designed travel trailer that you will enjoy for many years.
