Susan and I have been touring, reviewing and rating RVs for over 5 years now! Wow it’s been a long time!

In this article, we will examine seven of the best fifth wheels with a bath and a half on the market. A significant number of fifth wheels only come with one bathroom, so finding one with a bath and a half is not as easy as it sounds.

5th wheels with a bath and a half are very convenient for families traveling together or those who enjoy having company! The kids or guests can use the half bath without having to go through your bedroom to get to the full bathroom.

Susan and I own an RV with 1.5 baths, and we love the convenience of having a bath and a half so we can use the bathroom simultaneously. And the kids and grandkids have access to a bathroom without walking through our bedroom.

Do You Need Two Bathrooms in a 5th Wheel RV?

You probably need two bathrooms in an RV if you’re planning on extensive vacations with multiple people. Even a midsize family of 4 to 6 is capable of placing a high demand on bathroom usage at any given time. For those raising kids, even in a three to four-bedroom, two-bathroom home, you probably know that even two is sometimes not enough.

You may even prefer a bath and a half or a two-bathroom set up as a couple. If there is one thing in the world capable of frustrating a couple, it is bathroom access or lack thereof. This is especially true first thing in the morning. Whether or not you need two bathrooms basically boils down to your lifestyle and personal preferences.

7 Best 5th Wheels with 1.5 Baths for 2024

While there are large RVs out there that only have one bathroom, 5th wheels with a bath and a half simply make sense for families and social RVers who enjoy entertaining guests. With that being said, here are some of the best of the best on the market today:

1. CrossRoads Volante VL329DB

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Large, private bunkhouse with dual-opposing bunks

⛔ Carpeted slides

  • Length: 36′ 98″
  • UVW: 9,646 lbs
  • GVWR: 11,810 lbs
  • CCC: 2,164 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 1,618 lbs
  • Sleep: 10

Whether you have guests or kids, the private bunkhouse has its own half bath, so no one will wake you in the middle of the night, stomping up the little set of stairs to use the bathroom. The Volante bathroom design is also convenient for the living room area, with the wall angling the TV for the best and most comfortable seating and entertainment.

Not only do you get two bathrooms, but you also get two kitchens—one on the inside and one on the outside. The exterior kitchen features a fridge, sink, cabinetry, counter space, and a small, three-burner stove. The number of cabinets and storage spaces throughout takes full advantage of over a ton of payload capacity.

2. Grand Design Solitude 380FL

Our Pros and Cons

✅ “Televator” is positioned in front of a massive front window, entertaining with or without the TV

⛔ Front exterior storage is limited

  • Length: 41.4′
  • UVW: 14,866 lbs
  • GVWR: 16,800 lbs
  • CCC: 1,934 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 3,052 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

When you reach this level of RVing prowess, it becomes exceedingly difficult to locate faults. The Solitude is a huge RV, with an overwhelmingly luxurious and feature-packed interior. That’s not to say the exterior is shabby either—not by any means. Even the half-bath makes excellent use of a tight space.

A lot of half baths are angled affairs, with the toilet situated at an extreme angle, leaving little in the way of knee room. Keeping the bathroom horizontal reduces that claustrophobic squeeze. The entertainment room is massive, with two tri-fold sofas and theater seating. The queen bedroom is the icing on the cake, with room enough for a significant office space.

3. Heartland Elkridge 37BBH

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Huge entertainment center with an extra-long fireplace and large HDTV

⛔ Carpeted slides and floor vents

  • Length: 42.4′
  • UVW: 12,770 lbs
  • GVWR: 16,630 lbs
  • CCC: 3,812 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 2,630 lbs
  • Sleep: 10

The aesthetic appeal of the Heartland Elkridge 37BBH is simply off the charts. The first thing that hits you when you walk inside is the “wow” factor. If you need a large RV with multiple bathrooms and plenty of storage space, the 37BBH is the way.

The huge windows really open up the interior space, making it feel a lot larger than it really is. The rear of the RV features a loft, a floor-level bed, and a large wardrobe, all of which are more than enough for kids or guests to take advantage of. The front features a king-size bed and a washer/dryer prep area. No more meticulous trip planning around your clothes-washing needs.

4. Palomino Columbus 383FB

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Rich, dark wood against white aesthetic throughout this loaded fifth-wheel

⛔ Low sleep count for its size

  • Length: 41.2′
  • UVW: 13,322 lbs
  • GVWR: 16,150 lbs
  • CCC: 2,828 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 2,573 lbs
  • Sleep: 4

The Columbus 383FB is one of the prettiest fifth wheels with a bath and a half that you’re likely to find. Before you even dive into the many features, everything about the interior draws the eye. The immense rear bathroom features a sizeable walk-in closet, while the center bathroom is fairly large and spacious.

The back half of the 383BF is relegated to the kitchen and entertainment areas, with the opposing slides opening up a huge interior space. An 88″ split tri-fold rests at an angle from the theater seating and large dinette area. All of which is across from a huge kitchen, loaded with cabinets, an island, counter space, and a pantry.

5. Forest River Cedar Creek 371FL

Our Pros and Cons

✅ 5 small slides optimized for maximum interior space

⛔ The slides make it difficult to access some areas when they’re in

  • Length: 41.9′
  • UVW: 13,564 lbs
  • GVWR: 16,615 lbs
  • CCC: 3,051 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 2,615 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The large rear bathroom is one of the most impressive of all the 5th wheels, with a bath and a half on our list or elsewhere. It’s a massive section of the RV, with two large sinks with extensive counter space, a shower large enough for a seat, and a washer and dryer prep area combined with additional closet space.

The rest of this Cedar Creek fifth wheel just gets better. The forward section is pretty traditional, with the three-couch setup and the entertainment center. As you can see in the floor plan, the central portion of the 371FL is simply packed to the brim. A large island is surrounded by a broom closet, cabinets galore, a half-bath, overhead compartments, and a freestanding dinette.

6. DRV Suites Full House LX455

Our Pros and Cons

✅ King size bed in a huge bedroom for a toy hauler fifth wheel

⛔ Split bathroom

  • Length: 44.2′
  • UVW: 19,800 lbs
  • GVWR: 24,000 lbs
  • CCC: 4,251 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 3,560 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

Toy haulers are convenient for obvious reasons. Toy hauler 5th wheels with a bath and a half that still has a king bed in a massive bedroom are rare indeed. The Full House fifth wheel does everything and does it so well that it’s impossible to ignore. Granted, the primary bathroom is split, but there’s still the half bath located behind the corner column that houses the entertainment center.

The garage features a drop-down, powered queen bed and split-bench seating (optional), for when guests are sleeping over. It’s also a sizeable section of the RV for partying and hanging out. If you want to just relax and watch some TV, the insanely large couch is more than enough for you to stretch out or for everyone to have a comfortable seat.

7. Coachmen Brookstone 344FL

Our Pros and Cons

✅ L-shape counter space in the bathroom is huge, with L-shaped cabinetry to match it

⛔ Small pass-thru and limited storage on the exterior

  • Length: 42.2′
  • UVW: 12,789 lbs
  • GVWR: 15,000 lbs
  • CCC: 2,211 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 2,823 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

Last but not least on our list of 5th wheels with a bath and a half, the Brookstone 344FL earns its spot with a fantastic, huge rear bathroom and a ton of living space in the bedroom. The front section is expected at this point, but that’s not a bad thing, considering the setup is so perfect.

The kitchen is very spacious, with a ton of cabinetry, a free-standing dinette, a small half-bath off to the side, and excessive but welcome pantry space for all the dry goods you want to bring along for the trip. The exterior is a little short on storage options, but the interior storage and space make up for it to a large degree.

Are There Any RVs with Two Full Bathrooms?

Yes, there are RVs with two full bathrooms, such as the Avalanche 390DS or the Grand Design Momentum 397TH. The fifth wheels, with a bath and a half out there, do not stand alone either. There are Class A motorhomes with two bathrooms and even traditional travel trailers.

Two bathrooms do take up more interior space, but oftentimes, it’s not as bad as it seems. A bath and a half is a decent compromise, especially if the shower is in a prime location for easy access and privacy, which isn’t always the case.

Advantages of 1.5 Bathroom 5th Wheel Floor Plans

When you are looking for the best 5th wheels on the market, it is important to know why you are purchasing the product you are purchasing. After all, you do not want to make a significant financial investment without knowing anything. 5th wheels make great use of space.

A significant portion of the trailer sits on the bed of the truck that tows it. This reduces the overall length of your tow vehicle and RV, making fitting into certain campsites easier.

Additionally, these trailers are usually great value options. Although they are larger, they are less expensive than full-blown RVs of similar sizes. So, if you are working on a budget, consider these options. 

If you are sold on 5th wheels in general, you are probably trying to figure out which floor plans to consider. Two-bathroom floor plans are always popular options. You might not realize how much you appreciate having more than one bathroom at home until you just have one on the road.

Having a bath and a half will save you time in the morning when everyone has to go through their morning routine. Although you will still only have one shower, everyone else can get their teeth brushed in the half bathroom while people cycle through the shower. Saving time here will let you do more things you want instead of spending extra time in the trailer. 

Additionally, having an extra bathroom is a must if you are traveling with a larger group. Although men can go outside to use the bathroom in some situations, having only one bathroom for six people or more can become problematic quickly. So, if you plan on traveling in a large group, investing in the second bathroom is a good idea. 

Final Words About 5th Wheels with a Bath and a Half

After looking through these 7 amazing 5th wheels with 1.5 bathrooms, we hope you found one that interests you. We know that everyone will not find a fit here, but you should be able to learn a few things from the featured trailers.

At the very least, you will be able to get an idea of what features typically exist in 5th wheels with bath-and-a-half floor plans. 

5th wheels with 1.5 bathrooms consist of one full bath and a half bathroom, which includes a toilet and sink but no shower. So, you will only have one shower while you have two toilets and sinks. For some people, this might mean that the extra bathroom is worth it, but for most of you, it should make these trailers worthy of consideration.

These floor plans are incredibly popular among RV owners, but it can be hard to narrow down the field. There are dozens of manufacturers out there that produce high-quality 5th wheels.

So, before you start your search, you should pick a few manufacturers and stick to them. We did that with our list by choosing five popular brands and featuring trailers from them. 

There are many advantages to purchasing a trailer with a bath and a half-floor plan. However, the biggest advantage is the time you will save on your morning routines. When you only have one bathroom, you need to do everything one person at a time.

However, when you have a full and a half bath, you can have people cycle through their showers quickly in one bathroom while everyone else brushes their teeth, washes their face, and puts in their contacts. With this extra time, you can spend more time doing what you want.
