This travel trailer offers many standard features often found to be optional on comparable trailers.

The Takena’s fuel efficient towing is due to its ultra–light weight and aero–dynamics and can be towed with most mid–sized SUVs and mini–vans. Most Takena models are less than 3000 pounds when fully loaded.

The Takena factory team is committed to providing excellent customer service and high quality travel trailers which will provide comfort, enjoyment, and memories for years to come.
