Travel trailers with bunk beds are the perfect solution to the problem of having a bed for everyone. Bunk beds can also be more convenient than converting a dinette into a bed each night. Another nice perk of bunk beds is that they allow children to have their own space to store their clothing, mobile devices, and toys away from the living area. 

We have attended many RV Shows and dealerships all across the country to tour, review, and rate these travel trailers. We have also read many reviews and comments from our subscribers.

Our guide to the 10 best travel trailers with bunk beds will help you find the perfect travel trailer. We focused on travel trailers with bunk beds that weigh less than 7,000 lbs because these units are perfect for weekenders, part-timers, and even full-time families road-schooling their kids across America.

What Size Campers are 7,000 lbs.?

What Size Camper are Travel Trailer With Bunk Beds Under 7,000 lbs.

The size of campers that are 7,000 pounds ranges from the upper 20 feet to low 30 feet in length. They usually have tandem axles and can be found with or without a single front room slideout. It’s rare to see one with two entry doors, but they exist. The average height of a travel trailer at this length and weight is between 10-11 feet and 6.5 feet inside.

RV manufacturers make some using the stick-and-tin conventional method using a wood frame and corrugated aluminum sidewall shell, like the CrossRoads Zinger Lite above. Others use the laminated method with aluminum tube framing and flat-paneled fiberglass sidewalls, where components are sealed to the panels with heat and a clear coating.

Travel trailers have the most popular floorplan variations at this length and weight since consumers find them the ideal size. In recent years, the best RV floorplans for families favor full-size bunks over twins. Murphy beds outsell permanent beds because they’re great space savers.

Other features in campers that are 7,000 lbs. include:

  • Either standard or U-shaped dinettes.
  • 8–10 cu. ft. Refrigerators
  • Multiple LED TVs
  • RV outdoor kitchens
  • Wet, dry, and full-width bathrooms
  • Massive storage space
  • Prep for data, satellite, solar, and other inputs

10 Best Travel Trailers with Bunk Beds: Under 7,000 LBS.

A lightweight travel trailer with bunk beds is the perfect compromise in terms of affordability and sleeping space. Here are some of the best the market has to offer, with more than enough capacity for your family and guests.

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Outdoor kitchen is perfect for getting all the kids outside and cooking out

⛔ TV placement directly above the kitchen sink makes little sense

  • Length: 29.9′
  • UVW: 5,576 lbs
  • CCC: 2,120 lbs
  • GVWR: 7,728 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 728 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

Let’s kick things off with our first travel trailer with bunk beds, the Cruiser RV MPG 2500BH. With over a ton of storage, an outside kitchen, a double-size bunk, and a full bathroom, this is the perfect option for a large family or even two smaller families traveling in tandem.

The L-shaped kitchen adds to the interior living space and features more counter space, especially if you are cooking inside and outside. The large awning extends over the cooking appliances outside as well, so you can enjoy cooking on a hot summer day without blistering in the heat.

2. Coachmen Freedom Express 22SE

  • UVW: 4,336 lbs
  • CCC: 1,840 lbs
  • GVWR: 6,176 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 576 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

It’s not often that you get a travel trailer with bunk beds that can sleep eight and has zero slides. The Coachmen Freedom Express 22SE proves you can do a lot with a little. Plus, it features a lightweight design, so you won’t need a small Army tank to haul it around.

The double-over-double bunks sit right next to a small but full bathroom, with a large enough dinette to support a large family that likes to eat their meals together. With pass-through storage, nearly a ton of cargo-carrying capacity, and a queen Murphy bed, neither space nor weight is limiting.

3. East To West Della Terra 255BHLE

  • Length: 31.7′
  • UVW: 5,993 lbs
  • CCC: 3,447 lbs
  • GVWR: 9.440 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 640 lbs

With a massive cargo-carrying capacity, a large slide, and a huge sleeping capacity, the East-to-West Della Terra 255BHLE is tailor-made for large families or hosting a lot of guests on a big party night. In fact, get-togethers will never be too constrictive, and you get all of this in a sub-three-ton travel trailer.

There’s no exterior kitchen, but the exterior LP quick-connect will get you started with exterior cooking appliance options. However, cooking inside is a breeze as well, with the L-shaped counter offering plenty of space to cook for large gatherings.

4. Heartland Pioneer 250BH

  • Length: 29′ 9″
  • UVW: 5,175 lbs
  • CCC: 1,693 lbs
  • GVWR: 6,900 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 735 lbs
  • Sleep: 10

The Heartland Pioneer 250BH is a slick-looking travel trailer with bunk beds, especially if you opt for the one with those eye-catching, vertical graphics on the entryway. It also happens to be a massive sleeper, sleeping up to ten tired souls at once.

It doesn’t match the CCC of some of the other RVs on this list, but it’s still a respectable 1,693 lbs, which should be enough to hit the road with a large group of family or friends. The double bunks are always a nice touch, especially when situated next to a full bathroom.

5. Airstream Flying Cloud 30 FB

  • Length: 30.8′
  • UVW: 6,557 lbs
  • CCC: 2,243 lbs
  • GVWR: 8,800 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 903 lbs
  • Sleep: 9

The timeless, classic aesthetic appeal of the Airstream remains ever-present—only this time, there’s an office within that shiny, aluminum shell. No, it’s not like a luxury office you might find in a condo or even in your own residential home. However, it’s clearly an office space with all of the amenities you expect in such an environment.

Even with that unique and rare addition, the Airstream Flying Cloud 30FB has enough remaining space to sleep up to 9 people. They even found room to install some closets and wardrobes, over a ton of storage capacity and spaces and a full bathroom. Not bad at all, especially for working families on the move!

6. r-pod RP-203

Our Pros and Cons

✅ The small slide and Murphy bed do a fantastic job of maximizing the living space throughout

⛔ Air conditioner is optional, not a standard feature

  • Length: 25′
  • UVW: 5,169 lbs
  • CCC: 2,556 lbs
  • GVWR: 7,725 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 725 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

One of three floorplans, the r-pod-203 comes with a dual-battery rack (for those who prefer going off-grid or boondocking), rotocast tanks, seamless countertops, a tire pressure monitoring system, a GE refrigerator, and enough interior space to sleep up to eight people.

It helps that the slide includes the dinette, significantly boosting the living space through the kitchen and into the entertainment space. The 60 x 74 Murphy bed only adds to the spacious, daily feel of living in the 203. Even better, this puppy can hold over a ton of extra gear, so feel free to pack it down on your next adventure.

7. Riverside Retro 240BH

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Unique and captivating retro look, on the inside and the outside

⛔ Counter space is pretty limited

  • Length: 27′ 5″
  • UVW: 4,260 lbs
  • CCC: 3,120 lbs
  • GVWR: 7,380 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 380 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The retro look has been gaining steam in recent years, and you can have a Riverside Retro at an affordable price, with a small weight footprint, and enough interior space and accommodations to sleep 6. That’s more than enough for a midsize family to hit the road comfortably.

For a travel trailer with bunk beds, considering its light weight, the cargo carrying capacity is immense, at over a ton and a half. If you’re the adventurous sort, you can spend significant time packing this RV down with all of the outdoor gear you can imagine and your personal effects.

8. Palomino Puma Ultra Lite 16BHX

Our Pros and Cons

✅Ton of cabinetry and space optimization throughout

⛔ Small CCC for a 5-person sleeper

  • Length: 21′ 6″
  • UVW: 3,144 lbs
  • CCC: 726 lbs
  • GVWR: 3,870 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 370 lbs
  • Sleep: 5

As a lightweight travel trailer with bunk beds, the Palomino Puma Ultra Lite 16BHX, from the outside, doesn’t look like it can possibly hold all that it does. However, step inside, and you’ll find the opposite of what you might expect, with bunk beds, moderate counter space, and even a queen-sized bed.

You can opt for either the dinette or dual recliners, the latter of which are very comfortable. As a light sleeper, the 16BHX is a fantastic option for smaller family sizes or even for couples that like to host guests from time to time.

9. Gulf Stream Gulf Breeze 246BH

✅ Outside mini-kitchen includes a fridge, slide-out grill, countertop, and drawers

  • Length: 30′ 4″
  • UVW: 5,903 lbs
  • CCC: 1,707 lbs
  • GVWR: 7,610 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 610 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

The interior of the lightweight, Gulf Stream Gulf Breeze 246BH is all bright aesthetics, which adds to the spacious feel of an already sizeable living space. The front bedroom is a private room; even the double bunks include curtains you can draw on the top and bottom.

With enough room for eight to sleep, you can even bring your four-legged friend along for the ride. Below the fridge, you’ll find a special dog dish drawer that’s highly convenient. The CCC is moderate, with pass-through storage, hidden storage beneath the bed, and plenty of cabinetry throughout.

10. Keystone Bullet 211BHSWE

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Water-resistant, Hyperdeck flooring throughout

⛔ Oven is pretty tiny for a kitchen that needs to produce for up to eight people

  • Length: 26.1′
  • UVW: 4,370 lbs
  • CCC: 2,227 lbs
  • GVWR: 6,597 lbs
  • Tongue Weight: 470 lbs
  • Sleep: 8

The last travel trailer with bunk beds is as good as the first. The Keystone Bullet 211BHSWE features a three-year warranty on the exterior, which is always a good thing. Some significant tech also went into this model, including the Hyperdeck flooring, Blade A/C ducting system, and the SolarFlex package.

The interior is fairly spacious, with a queen bed up front, double bunks in the back, optional storage in place of one of the bunks, and a spacious bathroom that includes a tub. There’s not much counter space to work with in the kitchen. However, you also have the exterior kitchen when it’s time to cook big meals for a large family.

Can Adults Sleep On RV Bunk Beds?

For the most part, adults can sleep on RV bunk beds, especially when they are double beds. Most doubles are about 74″ long, which is enough for someone 6′ 2″ tall to stretch completely out. Double bunks are also wide enough to move around without falling off the bunk.

Twins are a little more difficult, but it can still be done. Of course, a grown adult may be a little more uncomfortable in a twin bunk, depending on size, weight, and height. For those adults out there who can literally sleep anywhere, bunks are far from an issue.

Can I Pull a 7,000 lb Travel Trailer With Bunk Beds?

Can I Pull a 7,000 lbs. Travel Trailer With Bunk Beds

You can pull a 7,000 lbs. travel trailer with bunk beds with a full-size SUV or half-ton pickup truck. The examples we presented have a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) between 6,000 and 7,000 pounds. This is different from an RV with a dry weight (a.k.a. Unloaded Vehicle Weight/UVW) of the same weight.

An RV with a 7,000 lbs. dry weight means that the coach weighs that much when it’s empty. When you fill it with fresh water, your camping gear, food, clothing, and passengers, the total Gross Vehicle Weight (filled-up weight) could be as high as 9,000 pounds or more.

The GVWR is the RV manufacturer’s rating (and various governing agencies) that tells everyone what the safest maximum weight the rig can hold (the keyword is “safe”). If you have a tow vehicle with a 7,700 lbs. towing capacity, realistically, which one of these RVs do you think would be the safest for you to hitch up?

Here are some recommendations on the best SUVs to tow a travel trailer with bunk beds under 7,000 lbs.
