2016 Lance 2295 Review
The Lance 2295 is proof that good things come in small packages. This travel trailer gives you everything you need in a mobile home, including easy towing.
Available in nine travel trailer floorplans, we’ve decided to give you a tour of the Lance 2295, partly because we love its exterior kitchen and interior fireplace. For measurements, the 2295 has a floor length of 22’6”, overall length of 27’0”, exterior width of 963/8”, exterior height of 121” and interior height of 78”.

Every Lance trailer is built with 3D advanced CAD engineering, creating precise plans that run CNC machinery. In simple terms, this process is designed to ensure every part in every model is perfect and identical in size. Stainless steel fasteners keep the body together, resisting corrosion and providing users with a long lasting base. The 2295 features an aerodynamic nose cap and glossy fiberglass. All Lance trailers are equipped with Azdel, a lightweight composite panel that is used instead of wood. According to Lance, using Azdel ensures that your walls don’t rot or grow mold. All in all, Lance travel trailers are designed to last long and strong.

You’ll be proud of your Lance while pulling it along the freeway. Its modern exterior is as pretty as it is functional. It features an aerodynamic front section profile, aluminum wheels with radial tires and fiberglass front wrap with a formed TPO lower gravel guard. For your convenience, the Lance 2295 travel trailer is equipped with an exterior wash station, exterior propane connection and most importantly, the aforementioned exterior kitchen (featuring a sink and two-burner range). As if Lance couldn’t impress us more, it also gives consumers the option of a rooftop solar panel. When you’re ready to go inside, walk up the double entry step, pull the swing-out entry assist handle and walk inside. You’ll find yourself in the living area/kitchen.
When you first walk in, you’ll notice the beautiful wood cabinetry and warm décor. Although the trailer may seem small on the outside, it’s actually very spacious on the inside. The living space includes a small kitchen, large dinette and impressive entertainment center. All cabinetry features decorative pull hardware and Lite-Ply cabinet construction. Upon entering, you can hang your keys on the key hanger, and check the time on the wall clock.

In the kitchen you’ll find all the essentials, including three-burner range with range hood and fan, double bowl sink with a pullout sprayer faucet and sink cover and refrigerator with a two-way double door. A folding galley extension gives you more space for chopping and prepping food, while the magazine and spice racks give you additional space to store items. The pantry provides ample space for storing cereals, canned goods and even clothes. When dinner’s ready, you can serve it at the dinette. Large enough for a family of four, it sits right beside a large window, soaking in the sun and overlooking your surroundings.
The dinette gives you a perfect view of the entertainment center, allowing you to sit comfortably while watching your favorite program. You can request a 32” LED TV and a fireplace. Standard entertainment equipment includes AM/FM/DVD stereo with exterior speakers and an HD TV antenna. The 2295 is pre-wired for satellite television.
