5 Campers That Fit in a Garage

Storing your trailer doesn’t need to be a hassle if the camper is so compact it fits in a garage!

By parking your camper in the garage, you can maintain its structural integrity- the roof, calking, and cleanliness- as well as save money by now paying a monthly storage fee at another site. Luckily, there are many campers currently available that can easily fit into a regular garage, including the Meerkat, Happier Camper, and many others!   

Now, let’s take a look at five of the coolest campers that can fit in a regular garage.


Compact and lightweight, the MeerKat trailer is easily towed by any 4-cylinder vehicle.

The base model, starting at $22,970, includes the following:

  • Camp Stove
  • Porta Potty
  • Sofa/Bed Cushions
  • Fantastic Fan
  • Kitchen Sink w/manual pump
  • Ice box
  • And more!

More accessories can be requested for an additional price, such as a mini fridge, awning, or side room tent. You can build out your own MeerKat trailer here

Like most tiny trailers, the MeerKat does not include a shower option, however, there are plenty of solar/outdoor camping showers to choose from. You can check out these popular options, here.

Happier Camper

The Happier Camper is one of the most ingenious trailer designs to come on market.

Happier Camper’s interior design is completely up to you: Each portion, from the sofa to the kitchen sink, comes in cube modules. These modules are easily moved and modified, giving you the flexibility to change the interior completely whenever you’d like!

The base model, starting at $29,950, is a hefty price tag, however; Additional modules/accessories can be added for an extra cost. You can build your own Happier Camper trailer here.

Base models come as empty shells, for you to build your own camper, cube by cube. These additional components can include: AC, heater, solar kit, kitchen, dry flush toilet, awning, and cushions.

Due to it’s small size, an indoor shower is not an available addition. Like the MeerKat trailer, outdoor/camping showers are an alternative option.

One of the most popular travel trailers is the Scamp. Scamps are ultra lightweight, compact, and the 13′ Deluxe model fits in a standard garage, making it simple to maintain.

There are three 13′ Deluxe layouts to choose from, with the base model including:

  • 2 Burner Propane Stove

  • And more

Some layouts offer other accessories for an additional cost. To check out the various designs and additions offered, check out the Scamp 13′ Deluxe models here.

Unlike many other trailers, the 13′ Deluxe does not come standard with a toilet nor a shower. Unfortunately, showers are unable to fit in the compact models, however, a porta potti can be added to some of the Deluxe models upon request.

Wrap Up

Finding a small trailer that can fit in a standard garage is easy, given there are so many options currently on the market.

Ranging in price from $12,600 to almost $50,000 for the standard base options, there are small trailers available to fit everyone’s budget.
