Because lightweight RVs focus heavily on weight savings, it is easy to assume that this type of RV would have to sacrifice key features. With some lightweight RV brands that may be the case, however, Keystone’s innovation team has engineered Bullet and Passport models with select materials that are both lightweight and built to perform.
Lightweight models are the perfect introduction to the world of RVing. They are easier to tow, provide more fuel-efficient towing, and offer lots of camping amenities. The beauty of lightweight RV is that it can be towed with half-ton trucks, and even some crossovers and SUVs. The manufacturer of your vehicle typically identifies its towing capacity (or GWVR) on a sticker on the driver’s side door frame. This number will help you understand what trailers you can tow safely—there may be more options than you think! Connect with your vehicle’s OEM and dealership salesperson for more information about tow ratings and safe towing.
