Off-Road Hard Floor Campers for sale

Hard floor Campers are known for their comfort and liveability – offering a lot of the perks of owning a caravan or motorhome, but without the extra weight and limitations that come with owning a caravan. This type of trailer feels like a real home away from home.

The tent is kept off the ground with rails, and their structure is both sturdier and weightier, they require less general maintenance – and will last longer than their soft floor camper counterparts. They are also much easier and quicker to set up – making hard floor camper trailers the perfect choice for couples, or small families. 

With rear fold, forward fold, and Platinum’s awesome double-fold campers available – you are sure to find a style right for you and your family. Hard floor camper trailers available from Platinum Campers never compromise on comfort or luxury and have a lot more standard inclusions than the competition –

Easy Set Up

Camper Trailer Winch - The Chase

Looking for a camper trailer you can set up in a matter of minutes? Then you definitely should consider a hard floor camper.  When compared to their counterparts – hard floor campers are a lot easier, and quicker to set up. Your home on wheels can open in just a few minutes, making both setting up and packing up incredibly quick and convenient.

The floor is connected to gas struts and winch – you simply unlatch the top – and then with the connected winch, wind down the floor. The tent will automatically extend open – and with the addition of just a couple of tent poles, your camper is set up and ready for adventure.

The Dream Setup - Camping in a Hard Floor

Comfort & Convienence

The Discovery S3 Camper Trailer - Internal Seating Area

One of the first things you will notice about hard floor campers is that they have rails, sitting off the ground, and are completely protected and comfortable. However, this is also a trade-off when compared to a soft floor, as you do need to set them up on relatively flat ground.

But this allows water to run under the camper in wet weather, you don’t have to use tent pegs to hold down the canvas, making it quicker to set up, and having a hard floor makes everything much more durable and more versatile.

With the Discovery, a forward fold camper, and the Chariot, a double fold camper – they both have the added creature comfort of a sit-down dining area, that also folds down into another queen-sized sleeping area. This area is amazing at the end of a day full of adventures – play board games into the night, eat protected from the weather – did I mention it also has a built-in entertainment system with Bluetooth and speakers located under the seats! 

Although generally speaking it is true that hard floor camper trailers are more suited to couples and smaller families, Platinum Campers have a uniquely designed double fold camper: the Chariot, that has a third room that folds down all the way to the ground. Queen bed, the seating area that folds into another queen bed, and a third room available – this is a true 6 sleeper! And when you think about the standard fully enclosed annex (including floor) you can sleep even more if you needed to.

What to Consider

The Quest Hard Floor Camper Trailer

But is a hard floor camper right for you and your family? There’s a couple of questions you need to ask yourself:

Hard Floor:  Unlike soft floor campers, the floor of the camper will be off the ground and on rails. This means you do need relatively fat camping spots. However, if you plan ahead you can bring lengths of wood to hep level the floor a little. So where are you planning on camping? 

Getting into bed:  This is much easier in a hard floor compared with the soft floor models. usually just a step or two to get into the main queen bed, those with bad knees will thank themselves for getting a hard floor camper. 

Storage:  Is more limited with a hard floor. While there is usually a tool box at the front for storage, there is considerably less accessible storage. There is space within the camper that you can use, however you will have to open the camper to get to it before you leave, and won’t be able to access it until you open the camper at your destination. This isn’t usually an issue with some pre-planning and packing some supplies in your vehicle if you can. Otherwise you can get creative with your camper trailer storage ideas. (Article coming soon) 

Less Space:  All of the hard floor campers from Platinum include a queen sized bed – but if you have a larger family, or usually travel with a large group, you need to ask yourself where will everybody sleep – and will they be comfortable?
