The Travel Trailer Brands That Offer Fiberglass Roofs

Most travel trailers that are made today are made with rubber roofs, so it can be a little difficult to find a company that still uses fiberglass.

“A Canadian-based company called Boler introduced a fiberglass option in 1971 that would change the camping game.”


I am going to go through each company and detail which of their travel trailers are made with fiberglass roofs. In addition, I’ll be reviewing the major details of each trailer as well as how it performs and looks.

Venture RV

Venture RV company is a subset of KZ industries that has been around since 1972. They added Venture RV to their lineup a couple of years ago. Venture RV makes lightweight, easily towable travel trailers.

Two of the five models that Venture RV constructs have fiberglass roofs. These are the Sonic and the Sonic Lite. Both of these trailers are great and make for some fun camping and travel experiences.

The Venture Sonic

The Venture Sonic comes with 7 different floor plans and three different color options. The main floor plan includes a small kitchen, bathroom, and a bed that can be substituted for a Murphy sofa.

The bathroom is located at the very back of the trailer and has a separate shower, toilet, and sink. There is also a little linen closet in it.

The kitchen in on the left side wall and has a fridge the measures in a 7 cubic feet. Also included is a stove and a double sink. Across from the kitchen is the dinette.

At the head of the Sonic travel trailer is the bed/sofa-bed. There is plenty of over head storage throughout the entire trailer, and pass through storage on either side of the bed.

Width7′ 5″
Length19′ 2″
Fresh Water Capacity 38 Gallons

The Venture Sonic Lite

The Venture Sonic Lite has the same three color schemes as the regular Venture Sonic, but it has very different floor plans. The main difference is that the Venture Sonic Lite has a 36 inch tub in most of its floor plans and the door is located in a different place.

The main layout features the door at the back of the trailer, When you walk in, you are facing the bathroom that has a tub, toilet, and sink.

To the right of the bathroom is a refrigerator and across from the fridge is the stove, counter space, and sink.

At the front of the trailer is the bed that has a TV setup in the corner. There is no dinette in the default floorplan of the Venture Sonic Lite, although there are dinettes in other layouts of the Venture Sonic Lite.

Winnebago makes many different RVs from travel trailers to motor homes. They even come in a range of sizes too, including big, small, and mini. They have been around since 1959 and have been delivering quality products for the last 61 years.

Out of all of their models, they make only one that has a fiberglass roof and it is called the Minnie Drop. It was created to be easily towable because of its aerodynamic build.

Winnebagos are known for using their space wisely and the Minnie drop does not fall short in this regard.

In the default floor plan, you enter from the middle of the trailer. When you walk in, there is a u-shaped dinette to your right and a bedroom with a set of bunkbeds to the left.

In between the dining area and the bedroom is the bathroom. The bathroom contains a wet bath setup and the kitchen has a sink, double stove, fridge, and a microwave.

Talk about getting a lot of bang for your buck! You get all the amenities listed above, plus the fiberglass roof to keep you safe from the rain and other outside elements.

Hitch Weight340 lbs
Interior Height 6′ 5″

Happier Camper

Happier Camper has been making comfortable, strong, and stylish camping trailers that are meant for everyday travelers.

Their owner was inspired by the retro trailers his father used to own and he used that inspiration to create the HC1 Travel-Trailer. This travel trailer is completely retro and is made entirely of fiberglass. This includes the roof, so it makes the list!

The HC1 Travel-Trailer is comfortable and also has great utility! With a nice large rear hatch and an extra wide side door, this trailer has great accessibility. Plus, it has various odds and ends that its users have enjoyed for along time. Some of these are things you wouldn’t even think about!

This model has things like porch lights, a rooftop fan, and a double hull insulated fiberglass shell. Plus, this little travel trailer uses its space wisely and can sleep up to 5 people. How amazing is that?

I’m not going to lie, one of the coolest parts about this lightweight travel trailer is its unique retro style. It comes in 7 different color options that, when mixed together with the style of the shell, makes for the perfect 70’s vibe.

HC1 Travel-Trailer (Happier Camper) Specs

Dry Weight 1100 lbs
Length 13′
Interior Height6.1′
Width6′ 11″
Add-on package Weight1200-1800 lbs
Torsion Axle 3500 lbs
Tire Size 13″

Water Tank (Optional)5 Gallons

Forest River

I saved the Forest River brand for last because they are probably the company that is most known for building travel trailers with fiberglass roofs.

Forest River has been around for 23 years and has 7 different break-off brands. They are extremely popular and a very well known brand in the trailer world. Plus, for the purposes of this article, they have a few models that sport fiberglass roofs.

I’m going to focus on the Forest River R.Pod. It is one of their ultra lite travel trailers and is known for its fiberglass roof. Plus it has 12 different floor plans, so there is literally something for everyone.

The main floor plan features a queen-sized bed at the head of the trailer and a comfortable dinette at the back of the trailer. There is a lot of overhead storage in both locations.

In between the bedroom and the dinette are a kitchen and a bathroom. The kitchen has a refrigerator, a double stove, and a circular sink. There is also overheard storage here too! This model is great for anyone who needs to pack a lot of gear on their trips.

The bathroom is a wet bath, which means that the shower, toilet, and sink are combined into one space. So basically you walk into the shower and there is a toilet at one end of the shower and the sink and shower head at the other end of the shower.

Dry Weight2342 lbs
Hitch Weight242 lbs
Height 9′ 6″
Length18′ 4″
Fresh Water Capacity 36 Gallons
Black Water Capacity30 Gallons
Gray Water Capacity 30 Gallons

6 thoughts on “What Travel Trailer Brands Offer Fiberglass Roofs?”

  1. Of the ones mentioned only the Happier Camper is molded fiberglass.
    The others are plywood builds with a fiberglass veneer glued on the outside face. This does not offer any of the leak or rot protections that make molded fiberglass sought after and long lasting.
    Airstream, Armadillo, Bigfoot, Casita, Escape, NuCamp, Oliver, Scamp all make true molded fiberglass campers and are all better than anything mentioned here.

  2. I think you need to review the base price of the happier camper. I think it’s 19,000 completely empty and something like $26,000 with the basic accessories
