Bunkhouse trailers are ideal for family camping adventures because they feature bunk-bed style sleeping which maximizes usable floor space. Typically, a bunkhouse trailer has three very distinct living zones, with one zone expressly designed for the kids. The front of the trailer encompasses a fairly standard bedroom suite with walk-around queen bed (for the parents), the middle houses shared living space, and the rear of the unit features side-wall-mounted bunkbeds separated by ample storage running across the rear wall.

No matter the size, style, floorplan, or manufacturer, all bunkhouse trailers offer some big camping benefits:

  • They maximize sleeping space AND usable floor space. By stacking the beds, you can fit additional sleeping campers inside without sacrificing elbow room (or room for supplies).
  • They’re great for growing families. A family – no matter what size – can always use more room when they camp. Unused beds provide additional storage space until the family needs the extra sleeping accommodations. Even if your camping crew needs all the beds at night, the bunks can be used to store gear by day.
  • And they’re great for guests.If “The More, The Merrier” is your camping motto, then a bunkhouse trailer is perfect for your style of camping. The extra bunks mean you’ll have plenty of room for guests, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to share and enjoy your adventures.

Before you decide which model is right for you, look at your needs now and down the road. Will your camping family be growing, perhaps with kids, grand-kids, or friends? What types of features – and what level of luxury – will you need to make your camping venture enjoyable? These are important factors that will have an impact on your bunkhouse.

With a bunkhouse camper, you can bring the whole family on your next vacation with room to spare. Bunkhouses are available in many models regardless of price, features, or construction material. So, you can select the bunkhouse camper that’s in your price range and suits your needs. Where should you start? Read on to learn about just a few of our favorite models.
