If you’re in the market for a new RV or camper trailer, you probably already have a list of amenities that you want, need, and can’t live without. With the popularity of buying a camper on the rise, it’s not surprising to find out that even the smallest size campers are finding a way to include all the amenities on your list.

Buying an RV or camper trailer means you like nature, but you also like privacy, so why should going to the bathroom be any different? Thankfully, you can have a small camper AND a bathroom, and we’ve compiled a list of the top small campers with bathrooms for you to choose from.

First of all, a “small” camper doesn’t have a standard definition, but for our article, a small camper is defined as either an RV or a towable camper that is between 11 and 22 feet long.

Besides merely being easy and fun to travel with, there are numerous other advantages to traveling with a small camper. Here are some of the benefits of Small Campers.

We chose not to include any little teardrop campers or pop up campers because we feel they are a different class of travel trailers.

5 Advantages of Small Camper Trailers with a Bathroom

1. Better Parking Options

The point of having an RV is to travel with it and then eventually park it. Whether it be in storage at home, (check out our article Can I Park an RV in My Driveway? for more info) in a parking lot or a campsite, sooner or later, you’ll have to find the space for your camper to fit. And with a smaller rig that is definitely easier to manage. It’s not the most fun part of planning a trip with your RV, but you can definitely avoid some headaches in the future by having a tiny camper that is easy to park.

2. Easier to Drive and Maneuver or Tow

Along the same lines as parking, having a shorter camper is usually much more comfortable to drive and maneuver down those dirt roads you’re craving to travel down. There are campgrounds or primitive camping sites that only certain vehicles can get to safely and with a shorter model, you’d have a better chance to camp in these sites to get that solitude you may be looking for.

3. Faster Travel Pace and Better Gas Mileage

Physics tells us that having a smaller camper leads to less weight and more aerodynamic, therefore allowing more comfortable travel. Not only that, but they tend to be better on gas mileage, allowing you to stay on the road longer to get to those campgrounds!

4. You Can Rent One Before You Buy One!

One of the best decisions we made before we bought our RV was to rent an RV. We learned so much about what we liked and didn’t like about the RV that it really helped us to narrow down what type of RV we liked best and which amenities mattered most. Most of all we found the right RV for us.

For example, we learned quickly that we did not want to buy an RV with a wet bath. With a wet bath, the entire bathroom is the shower. So, when you take a shower the toilet and bathroom floor are all wet. If someone wants to use the bathroom, we had to dry the floor and toilet which was an added step which was inconvenient. So, we knew we wanted a regular bathroom with a separate shower.

One great option to rent an RV is to check out Outdoorsy. You can rent any type of RV anywhere in the country and see what you like and don’t like about it BEFORE you buy your RV. I promise you will be glad you rented before buying. Renting first will help you to find the best small travel trailer for you!

5. Upgrades and Amenities!

As we stated before, RVs and campers have come a long way over the years, and no matter what size you choose, you don’t always have to compromise on the things you want most on your travels.

Now that you’re thoroughly convinced to get a small RV camper, now it’s time to talk about bathroom options. First off, there are two types of bathrooms available inside campers, and they are either a full bathroom or a wet bathroom.

A full bathroom, or a dry bath, has a separate toilet, sink, and shower and they most resemble the traditional bathroom layout. A wet bathroom also has a sink shower and toilet, but they are combined so that when you take a shower, you can use the toilet as a shower bench. Besides fully portable toilets and outdoor showers, these are the two bathroom types you’ll find in the descriptions of the best smallest RV campers with bathrooms below.

    • Prolite is a Canadian manufacturer of ultralight trailers since 2000. From what I can see on the web it looks like a nice light trailer that almost any car could tow. I’ve never seen one in person but this trailer offers a wet bath and seems like it is worth checking out too.
      Thanks for the suggestion!

    • I remember when first was looking for an RV, I was thinking to get the Casita. That’s a small one too and reasonably priced. Now I have a class C motorhome. I prefer RVs that have the shower and toilet separate. These are chill though. I really like the look of the airstream.

    • Hi Betty,

      You aren’t the first to bring up the R-Pod. Honestly – I’ve never been in one but I will check one out at the Hershey RV show in a couple of weeks and it will most likely end up in one of our Youtube videos.

      Thanks for reading the article and commenting!

  4. I wonder if there is a small camper trailer (16′ – 17′) with both a bathtub and a 6cu refrigerator. I see one or the other, but not both. When I see one with a large refrigerator, it comes with wet bath or shower pan — and when I find one with a bathtub, it comes with a tiny fridge.
    I wouldn’t care much for a queen bed if space is needed in the floor-plan for both a large 6cu/7cu fridge and a comfortable bathroom with a bathtub.
    Can somebody suggest a small 16′ or 17′ trailer (in USA) that has both?
