Our 17ft Travel trailer is a great option for couples or small families. It is a light tow behind unit that comes with a raised suspension and off road tires designed to get you into any campsite you choose. With a Queen size bed, 2 single bunk style beds, and a dinette sleeping section this trailer can sleep up to 5 guests. A small galley kitchen contains a microwave, two stove top burners, and a 3-cubic-foot mini fridge. The bathroom contains a toilet and a small shower. A full powered LED lit awning as well as an indoor and outdoor Bluetooth radio system makes this trailer a blast to camp in.
The fresh water tank holds 30 gallons. Typically with a family of 4 and light water use this can last for 3-4 days. With heavy use of the sink and shower it will last roughly 2-3 days. Fresh water can be filled up at most camp sites or RV hookups. A hose is included to refill the freshwater. The tank will leave full from the shop and can be returned empty or full. There is no charge for water refill at the shop when you check back in.
The Black water tank is 9 gallons and the Grey water tank is 15 gallons. Black water is your waste water from the toilet and the Grey water tank is water used in both the sink and shower. Both tanks leave empty and will need to be returned empty or there will be a $50 charge to empty the tanks. You can empty these tanks at any RV campground or at our local Shell Gas Station in Jackson.
Heat/ Hot Water Heater / Batteries :
Heat is provided in the trailer by a 7 gallon propane tank for both heat and hot water. The heat is moved throughout the trailer via an electric fan connected to the batteries. The pilot for the water heater in the 17ft trailer will need to be lit by hand and will be covered during the travel trailer checkout. A 7 gallon tank when used lightly can last 10-14 days without a problem. With heavy use expect roughly 7 days of propane. Propane can be filled at any propane shop. The tank will need to be returned full or you will be charged a flat $25 refill fee.
The Battery system is designed to be charged off either a conventional RV plug in at a full hookup site, can be recharged from an optional rental generator for off grid camping, or it will recharge when being towed by your vehicles alternator. Batteries are designed to run basic low voltage items in the trailer such as the heating fan system and refrigerator. Anything you need to plug into a wall outlet to run while camping at a non- full hook up site will require the optional rental generator. (Coffee Maker, Toaster, Microwave etc.)
To use the AC on the unit you will need to be at a full hookup site designed with a 30amp breaker. The AC system will not work with the generator or just the battery’s. That being said AC is not typically needed in the Jackson Area.
