10+ Stunning Campers that Fit in a Garage

If you’re like me, you love spending time outdoors and enjoy the convenience of camping. And if you’re like me, you also don’t have a lot of extra space in your home. That’s where getting a camper van that fits in your regular garage comes in handy!

I’ve been camping for years, and I’ve rented campers and gone camping with friends and family members on many occasions. I’ve learned through experience what works best for me when it comes to choosing a camper that will fit in my garage.

I’ll share what I’ve learned about campers that will fit in a standard garage – they’re typically feet wide by feet tall, with an exterior height of around feet. I’ll also share some tips on how to store your camper when it’s not in use. Let’s get started!

What factors should you consider when choosing a camper that fits in your garage?

If you’re looking for the right camper to fit into your standard-sized garage, it can seem like a huge task. Now I’m here to share what I’ve learned. The most important thing to keep in mind is that overall length is the crucial factor. If it fits in your garage, then it’s suitable -though admittedly, comfort and style will also be taken into consideration.

Fortunately, there are many choices that meet the 24-foot maximum ruleset for a standard-sized garage. Ranging from hard-cover campers with permanent beds to folding trailers that take up much less space when stored, you have plenty of choices for bringing along the comforts of home on your next camping trip! Whether you opt for a basic tent trailer or a luxury RV with air conditioning and entertainment units, there’s sure to be something out there that fits your needs and budget.

10 Campers that Fit in a Garage

1. Aliner campers expedition

The Aliner Expedition is a great option for anyone looking for a camper that can fit in their garage. The pop-up design means that it can be easily transported and set up, and at just under 19 feet in length, it’s a good size for a small family or group of friends.

The Aliner Expedition comes with a number of standard features, such as solar power and an off-road package, that make it perfect for campers who want to explore more remote areas. And with a weight capacity of 3,500 pounds, it can handle even the roughest terrain.

Unique features

  • The exterior of the trailer is black and gray.
  • It has a fresh-water tank that holds 11 gallons.
  • The tires are 14 inches tall.
  • It has a 3500-pound axle.
  • There are 4 stabilizer jacks to keep it level while parked.
  • It also has high wind lift assist for when it’s being towed.
  • There is a water heater and pump so you’ll have hot water on demand, as well as a furnace to keep you warm in cooler weather conditions.
  • The A/C unit is command operated and doubles as a heat pump in the winter months.

The downsides that made me frustrated

The downsides that made me frustrated with this camper were the high price tag, the fact that it’s a bit on the heavy side, and the lack of storage space inside.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some potential improvements to the Black and Gray Exterior Package include increasing interior storage space and locating exterior outlets in different spots on the vehicle for greater convenience. Another improvement would be to make the vehicle lighter so that it is easier to move around. This would make it easier for people to transport the car when they need it.

2. TrailManor 2518 Series

I have had the pleasure of using the TrailManor 2518 Series pop-up camper on a few occasions now and I absolutely love it! It is the smallest and most lightweight of all the TrailManor campers, which makes it super easy to tow behind my minivan.

Plus, it can be set up in the rain without all of your things getting wet – a huge plus in my book! There are three-floor plans offered in this series, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Each one comes with a rear king bed and mid-ship features, which is really nice.

The only difference is the front bed and what is in front of it: the KB model has a convertible dinette that folds down to create a full-size sleeping space, as well as storage cabinets, while the other two models have a standard front bed. Overall, I am very happy with this camper and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable and easy-to-use pop-up camper!

Unique features

  • The front bed replaces the dinette in the standard model
  • The area in front of the front bed is designed as a living space, with a 12-volt power outlet, a dry bath with a cassette toilet and shower, a 2-burner stove, and a 3-cubic-foot refrigerator
  • The roof vents provide ventilation, and there is also a TV/cable outlet, LED interior lights, and marble look countertops
  • The fantastic vent ceiling fan helps to circulate air, and there is also a smoke detector, CO & LP gas detector, preinstalled wiring for a radio/stereo, and a power front slide-out (slide-out models only)
  • The bedroom privacy curtain provides some privacy for those sleeping in the front bed
  • There is also a monitor panel, stabilizer jacks, radial tires, and a 6-gallon DSI gas/electric water heater

The downsides that made me frustrated

One of the drawbacks of living in an RV is the lack of power. There is only 12-volt power in the living area, which means that devices that require more power (like a TV) will not work. Additionally, there is no oven, which makes it difficult to cook anything beyond basic meals.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some improvements that would have made my experience better would have been if the RV had an a/c and awning. The RV also had a slide-out, which was really nice.

3. Lightweight Happier Camper

The HC1 is a great travel trailer if you’re looking for something you can stand up in. It’s one of the few that still fits in a standard garage bay, and even has a modular interior so you can customize the height to fit your needs.

I was really impressed with the quality of the build and how easy it was to set up – I had it ready to go in just a few hours. Overall, I’m really happy with my purchase and would recommend the HC1 to anyone looking for a comfortable and practical travel trailer.

Unique features

  • The travel trailer can stand up and still fit in a standard residential garage bay.
  • The modular interior gives you a floor-to-ceiling height of 5’5″
  • You can squeeze out more if you work directly with the manufacturer.
  • When you include the tongue of the trailer it measures 18 feet long
  • The garage-door-snug 8 feet in height with the standard suspension and ground clearance
  • -The adaptive modular interior can be reconfigured to fit a variety of needs, from a single person to a family of five.
  • The large rear hatch door makes it easy to load and unload large items.
  • It sleeps up to a family of five, making it perfect for weekend getaways or longer trips.
  • The premium fabrics and hardware give it a high-quality look and feel.
  • It’s solar-ready, so you can stay off the grid even when camping or traveling.
  • It fits in a single parking space, making it easy to take with you wherever you go.

The downsides that made me frustrated

However, there are a few downsides to consider. First, it’s not the most affordable option on the market. Second, it can be a bit difficult to reconfigure the interior to fit everyone’s needs. And finally, it doesn’t have as much storage space as some of the other options available.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some improvements that would have made my experience better include a more affordable price tag and an easier-to-configure adaptive modular interior. Additionally, I would have liked it if the home was more energy-efficient.

4. Bushwhacker 10HD

BraxtonCreek

The Bushwhacker 10HD is a great teardrop trailer for boon docking. It has a torsion-flex independent suspension axle and a maxi-clearance design for rougher terrain. The body is built tough with powder-coated fenders and oversized tires.

There is plenty of storage, including under-bed storage and a roof rack. The Bushwhacker 10HD has an oversized front tray that can hold up to four batteries or a small generator. It also comes with air conditioning, outdoor propane hookup, and easy plug-in solar prep.

Unique features

  • The Bushwhacker 10HD is designed to handle rougher terrain, with a torsion-flex independent suspension axle and maxi-clearance design

  • The camper also offers storage in places many teardrops do not, including strap-down points for kayaks or other gear and under-bed storage
  • The Bushwhacker 10HD can accommodate up to four batteries or a small generator, and also features an oversized front tray

The downsides that made me frustrated

Overall, I think the camper is a great buy. The only drawbacks are that it is very heavy and difficult to move around, especially when empty, and the storage is great, but it’s all on the outside of the camper and can be difficult to access. Another downside is that the air conditioner uses a lot of power and needs to be plugged into an outlet.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

The Bushwhacker 10HD could be made lighter, which would make it more portable for drivers and it could be more affordable, making it a more accessible option for campers.

5. Little Guy Micro Max

I have had the pleasure of owning a Little Guys Trailer for just over a year now. It is by far my favorite piece of camping gear!

At only 13 feet long and 72 inches high, this camper can easily fit in most residential garages or storage sheds. But despite its small size, the interior is surprisingly spacious with a 47-inch ceiling height. This makes it perfect for taller campers or those who want to be able to move around more freely inside their camper.

The lightweight design also makes it easy to tow behind most mid-size SUVs, making it the perfect option for weekend getaways. I highly recommend this camper to anyone who is looking for an easy-to-use and lightweight option for outdoor adventures!

Unique features

  • The TAG is one of Little Guys Trailers’ most popular teardrop campers.
  • It offers a total length of just 162” which is just over 13 feet long.
  • The total exterior height is 72” which will easily slide through just about any residential garage door or storage shed.
  • The interior itself is snug by travel trailer standards, but when you consider the 47” ceiling height it’s downright spacious for a teardrop camper.
  • All in a model that weighs only 2,200 pounds, which is light enough for most mid-size SUVs to tow.

The downsides that made me frustrated

Downsides of the TAG teardrop camper include its small size, which may be limiting for some campers; its weight, which may make it difficult to tow for some vehicles; and its height, which may make it difficult to store in some locations.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some improvements that would have made my experience better with the TAG include solar panels to power the trailer and an ultra-lightweight trailer design for easier towing. Additionally, a rooftop tent would have created more interior space and allowed for a more comfortable camping experience.

6. Scamp 13 Trailers

For many of us, the idea of a vacation is staying in an expansive luxury home away from home. But for some, the joy of travel lies in finding a compact and convenient home sweet home. And if you’re looking to hit the road without leaving all your comforts behind, look no further than the Scamp 13.

This fiberglass shell travel trailer packs a lot of punch into its petite frame – measuring just 13 feet with a maximum interior height of 6’3” and measuring 7’6” in total exterior height. Not only does this mean it will fit perfectly through your single garage door, but it offers all the items on your must-pack list such as queen sized bed, dining area, fully functional kitchen, and more.

So if you prefer to travel light and want to go big on fun, this stylish treetop abode should be top of your list! Not to mention its countless storage options, including external storage and free-standing cabinets for all that extra gear! With so much going for it, it’s clear why the Scamp 13 has gained such an intensely loyal following among Midwest vacationers.

Unique features

  • The two-burner stove is perfect for preparing meals while camping.
  • It features a kitchen sink, cabinet over the sink, backsplash, spare tire & cover, mounted rear jacks, 2” receiver, LED exterior lights, and a 45 amp power converter.

  • Screen door room darkening blinds provide privacy while rear overhead cabinets offer additional storage space if needed.

The downsides that made me frustrated

The downsides that made me frustrated about the Scamp 13 are that it is a small travel trailer and it does not have a lot of interior height. This makes it difficult to move around it and to store larger items.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some additional improvements that could have made my experience with the 2 Burner Propane Stove better would include: -An oven for baking dishes, More counter space to prepare food, and A dishwasher to clean dishes.

7. Taxa Outdoors Cricket Overland

I’ll admit that when I first saw the Taxa Outdoors Cricket Overland, I was a little skeptical. I’m not exactly what you would call a ‘shorty’, and I was worried that I wouldn’t have enough headroom in the camper. But after spending some time in it, I can say that my worries were completely unfounded!

The ceiling section of the camper rises up with the canvas sidewalls, giving tall people plenty of room to stretch out. And even though the rest of the camper is only 4’2″ high, Taxa, a common travel trailer, specifically designed it with a short tongue to make it fit into most residential garage bays.

So if you’re looking for an expandable camper that you can use in both camping and utility trailer mode, the Cricket Overland should definitely be at the top of your list!

Unique features

  • The TAXA has a dry weight of 2,000 lbs and 14″ ground clearance.
  • It sleeps 2 adults + 2 children and has a pop-up roof for optimized ventilation and protection.
  • The powder-coated steel chassis provides a 1,500 lb tongue jack with Timbren axle-less suspension and electric brakes.
  • There is also a 16″ alloy wheel with all-terrain tires (60,000-mile manufacturer warranty). The recycled ripstop polyester tent side has five mesh windows.
  • LED exterior lighting is included as well as pre-wired solar input, city water inlet, license plate bracket with LED light, 12V accessory outlet (exterior), built-in TAXA bottle opener, 1” plywood deck with ABS laminate flooring inside the camper.
  • Updated storage tower features a trio of milk crate drawers along with a rotating/nesting cafe table top (32” x 19”) that sits on an aluminum pedestal. There is also a full-size bed with an under-bed storage facility (25 cubic feet). The kid’s berth set can be used for up to 130 lbs max capacity.

The downsides that made me frustrated

The TAXA is a great camper but there are a few downsides that made me frustrated. First, it is very heavy at 2,000 lbs so it’s not easy to move around. Second, the ground clearance is only 14″, which means you have to be careful when driving over rocks and bumps.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

A weight distribution hitch would have been helpful to evenly distribute the weight of the camper. More exterior storage would be useful, such as a storage compartment on the side of the camper or a roof rack.

8. Safari Condo Alto

I had the opportunity to test out the Safari Condo Alto and I was really impressed! The expandable hard roof is a great feature, and the adjustable suspension system is top-notch.

At its most compact trailer, the entire rig is just 17 feet long and 83.5 inches tall, but when you expand the roof and set it up at camp, it offers over 6 feet of ceiling height in the main part of the living area.

This is a great option for those who want a compact camper that can still offer plenty of compact space and comfort.

Unique features

  • Safari Condo’s Alto R1723 is a small, ultra-lightweight trailer that is perfect for those who want to comfortably stand up in their RV and have all of the amenities of a normal home.
  • The clever design with a retractable roof expands from 83.5” high when collapsed to 101”, making it tall enough for 6’0 Justin to have a full-on dance party in) while still being easy to store.
  • The small size makes it easy to store in driveways and allows you to get into tight campsites or parking spots you wouldn’t be able o with a bigger rig.
  • It has the quality of the floorplan and builds with high-quality materials that are well put together by Safari Condo staff.
  • The Alto also has flexible support for different camping styles as well as big dreamy windows that provide plenty of light and make you feel like you are one with nature even while inside the trailer

The downsides that made me frustrated

The Safari Condo Alto has some downsides that can be frustrating for users. One is the lack of storage space, which can make it difficult to store all of your belongings. Another is the absence of a stovetop, which can make it difficult to cook your meals while on the road.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some improvements that would have made my experience with the Alto R1723 better would include a more powerful air conditioning unit, hot water heater, a larger refrigerator, and a more powerful water pump. Additionally, I would have liked it if the trailer had been available in a variety of colors so that I could have more personalized options.

9. NuCamp Tab

NuCampRV

The NuCamp TAB 320 U is a rare teardrop camper that offers so much in a compact package. Measuring just over 15 feet long, it’s much shorter than standard trailers; this means it can fit comfortably into regular 8-foot tall garage door frames.

Plus, the interior ceiling height of 69 inches is ideal for folks who don’t match any standard floor model sizing! The 5’7” person will be pleasantly surprised to find that they can actually stand up within the trailer’s confines.

This cleverly designed camper also comes standard with features such as a full galley, wet bath, and queen bed – all included in a surprisingly small and easy-to-tow package. With plenty of built-in storage options, you’ll be able to travel with ease without having to sacrifice living space.

If you’re after an efficient way to hit the road while also keeping your home comforts intact, then the NuCamp TAB 320 U should be high on your list of contenders. It has my stamp of approval!

  • With plenty of built-in storage options, you’ll be able to travel with ease without having to sacrifice living space.

The downsides that made me frustrated

The shorter length of the Honda Fit can make it difficult to park in some areas. The interior height might also be too low for people over 6′ tall.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Improvements that could have been made to my experience with the NuCamp TAB 320 U teardrop camper include better organization of the storage spaces, more outlets for charging electronic devices, and a USB port.

10. Winne Bago Minnie

Those who think of innovative travel trailers may assume that the larger models can’t ever fit into a regular-sized garage. Fortunately, Winnebago has proven that assumption wrong: their Minnie line of travel trailers is renowned for being a compact package but with all the amenities necessary to make a real-life home away from home.

Their compact size means they can fit into smaller garages without any issues – though be sure to measure before deciding if you have the right space! However, if you are looking for an even smaller option than this standard trailer, Winnebago also offers a floor plan which can fit in nearly any standard two-stall residential garage storage.

Keep in mind that even in this more compact form, it still packs enough power to provide ample living spaces needed for up to 6 people. That kind of convenience and versatility makes the Minnie one of Winnebago’s most popular platforms, and an ideal choice for anyone looking to set out on the open road trip.

Unique features

  • Winnebago’s Minnie line of travel trailers are compact but have all the amenities necessary to make a real-life home away from home.
  • Their compact size means they can fit into smaller garages without any issues – though be sure to measure before deciding if you have the right space!
  • If you are looking for an even smaller option than this standard trailer, Winnebago also offers a floor plan which can fit in nearly any standard two-stall residential garage storage.
  • Keep in mind that even in this more compact form, it still packs enough power to provide ample living spaces needed for up to 6 people.

The downsides that made me frustrated

The trailers can be cramped if you are not used to living in tight spaces. If you are looking for a more luxurious experience, this might not be the right option.

Some improvements that would have made my experience better

Some improvements that would have made my experience better would include a more concise and easy-to-follow instruction booklet. It was a little confusing trying to figure out how everything worked, and I had to go online to find a video tutorial on how to use the stove.

Final Thought

So, if you’re in the market for a new camper and you don’t have a lot of space, these ten campers are for you! Just be sure to measure your garage before you buy – you don’t want to be disappointed when it doesn’t fit!
