Best Camping Trolleys – Save Time & Prevent Back Pain

Lugging your gear around a campsite is a pain and time consuming.

One way to make your life easier and save time is to invest in a camping trolley. They’re also a useful storage option.

These trolley carts are perfect for transporting large camping items such as camping chairs, camping tables, camping gazebos, toilet tents, camping kitchens and camp beds.

Folding wagons are super versatile and also be used for beach, park and festival trips. With heavy duty ones you can also ferry the kids about!

How We Selected

I’m a keen camper and also use my trolley (Coleman Collapsible Camping Trolley) for beach use so have added my experience when selecting products.

In addition I have scoured the web looking at 100s of trolleys and have only included those with ratings above 4 out of 5.

Like most products there is a huge range in cost so I’ve selected the best budget buys along with those that cost more with lots of features.

Alongside traditional camping trolleys, I have also selected simpler transit trolleys (Vango do a fantastic transit trolley). If you’re looking for a simpler, lighter and more portable option these can be great.

Top Tips & What To Consider When Buying a Camping Trolley

What are you using it for?

Which one you will go for will largely depend on how you’ll be using it.

If you’re a regular camper and lugging it across all sorts of terrain you’ll want something with excellent wheels and as durable as possible.

Use the trolley for all sorts of situations

These trolleys are super functional and you can use in all sorts of scenarios.

  • Camping
  • Gardening
  • Festivals
  • Beach Trips
  • General Transport
  • Fun with the children

You get what you pay for

There’s a lot of moving parts with these camping trolleys. Throw in lots of weight and it puts a lot of pressure on the components.

Be aware that if you opt for a very cheap option some of the parts will wear out quite quickly.

Likewise if you’re only using lightly once a year I wouldn’t recommend getting a higher end model.

Off Road Capabilities and Wheels

Depending on the terrain you’ll be using it on think carefully about the type of wheels you go for.

More durable and wider wheels will serve you better in the short and long run.

Capacity

Depending on what you’ll be transporting will determine the best dimensions you require. Obviously the more you transport the greater volume would be preferable.

Maximum Load

The weight these camping trolleys can carry varies greatly. You may be better spending a little more than having to do many more trips with the trolley.

Weight & Portability

When the trolley is folded up, how much room does it take up?

If you have plenty of space in the car then this is less of an issue.

Final Thoughts

There’s a number of options that are similar in price, features and reliability to the Life Carver. If you’re after something simpler and more portable then I highly recommend looking at the Vango Transit Trolley.
