NoBo Travel Trailers By Forest River

Nobo (short for No Boundaries) trailers are a line of lightweight towable RVs made by Forest River. These travel trailers surged in popularity in recent years due to their relatively low weight, their higher clearance, and “beast mode” suspension in an economical package.

In fact, we have some close family members who recently bought one of these trailers, so we got a great up-close look!

Who Makes No Boundaries? 

Forest River RV makes No Boundaries campers in Elkhart, Indiana. It is part of the larger Forest River Inc., one of the largest RV manufacturers in the world. This parent company also manufactures boats, buses, and commercial trucks, among other vehicles. Nobo trailers are just one of the dozens of brands this parent company mass produces, including Georgetown, Sunseeker, Riverstone, and Sierra.

In our research and experience, we’ve found that they generally produce budget-friendly and lightweight campers that appeal to the masses for everyday camping. However, with the Nobo, they’ve definitely tried some different things with the Nobo to attract a more adventurous demographic.

Nobo Trailer Models

With relatively low dry weights, Forest River has positioned this travel trailer line to cater to drivers of both 4- and 6-cylinder vehicles. While they technically may be able to do it, these vehicles may still not give you the best towing experience–especially with the larger Nobo trailers.

Due to the higher clearance of these trailers, we highly recommend using a weight distribution hitch for towing. Especially if you’re right at the higher end of your towing capacities.

You can group No Boundaries campers into four categories: the 10, 16, 19, and 20 series. Here’s a closer look at what sets them apart.

How Much Does a Nobo Trailer Cost? 

New 10 Series models tend to sell in the mid $20,000s, depending on which features you’ve included. You can find used ones in the $15,000-$20,000 range.

New versions of the larger 19 Series No Boundaries camper sell for between $40,000 and $50,000, with used models approximately $10,000-$20,000 less, depending on age, condition, and features.

Is a Nobo Trailer Worth It?

Those seeking bigger or more luxurious trailers may be disappointed by the relatively small size and utilitarian style. However, those seeking a full-featured trailer you can tow without upgrading to a one-ton truck should check out this lightweight camper.
