To safely stay within the towing limits of the Defender, we chose 3 travel trailers under 6,000 lbs dry weight. Remember, once you add all your items, fill the gas and propane tanks and add a hitch you will be pulling a lot more than the dry weight of the RV! We recommend always staying on the low side of towing capacity of your Defender to account for hilly conditions, wind, and other factors that could make towing unsafe or wreak havoc on your transmission.

  1. Apex Nano by Coachmen. These lightweight, small length travel trailers are built using Adzel onboard composite sidewall panel technology on aluminum frames, making them strong and lightweight. The Nano has several floor plans to choose from, including the popular 193BHS will full bathroom and bunk beds. Even the largest Nano weights in under 4,000 lbs, so your Defender should tow the Nano line with ease if loaded properly. Here are some new and used Apex Nanos for sale.
