A travel trailer, also known as a caravan, is a trailer towed behind a road vehicle. It emerged in the early 1920s and became known as a home trailer in the 1950s and 1960s. A travel trailer shares the same origin with the motor home though they have differences. A motor or mobile home is a prefabricated house built on a chassis to which they are permanently attached and transported using tractor trailers. Usually, motor homes are left permanently in one location, while a travel trailer is more mobile.

Smaller travel trailers are designed for touring purposes. Thus, they are generally lighter than larger travel trailers that function as homes and are towed by sports utility vehicles, trucks, or towing cars. Some of the features that a modern travel trailer has includes full beds, toilet, shower, refrigerator, oven, microwave, stove, grill, heater, aircon units, sofa, and a decent entertainment system. Appliances and other devices are powered by either gas or electricity.
