There are 2 major opinions when it comes to purchasing an RV. Bunkhouse or no Bunkhouse. Usually, people end up on one side or the other of this decision. Well, for the ones who are on the “No Bunkhouse” side, this article is not for you. We are going to get down and dirty with what makes a great bunkhouse and why. Let’s get started.

What makes a bunkhouse a true bunkhouse is the separation between the main living area of the camper and the room that has bunks in it. Think of it like a second bedroom.
This model is one that cannot be overlooked. With a full living space, opposing slides, and ample storage paired with a massive bunkhouse, this luxury camper from a quality brand will keep your family happy for many years.
In the bunkhouse you can expect full 6-foot bunks and a couch that converts for the extra sleeping space. Pair that with a TV area and this just became your second den, playroom, and hideaway from your little ones if they ever became just a little too much. I know how it goes.
Have you ever been out camping and you have to sneak around when you wanted to go to bed so you wouldn’t wake them up? This allows you the freedom at night with a door between you and you lovely little angels or the guests that are staying with you.
Finally, when it is time for you to lay your head down, you can rest easy on a comfy queen bed or option for the massive king! Your bedroom has room to move around and a large closet to store everything you want to bring with you. Like I said, a camper that is not to be overlooked!

In the same family as the last one, you can take a step up and continue to pinch pennies. This nicely appointed trailer is laying down the law. The law of 2 that is…
Walk in one of 2 doors, either the master suite for sneaky in and out access, or the main living area for easy of entry. Let’s start with the master suite. Yes, suite. This large bedroom has private entry to the main bathroom. Not walking through the camper, around kids, knocking over pans, and tiptoeing over army men, this bathroom is a short 2 steps from your bed! And don’t worry about storage for your clothes with the 2 closets in your bedroom.
When you enter the main living, you will see 2 seating areas, a dinette and a theatre seat with 2 comfortable recliners. Across from you relaxation stations, there is a large tv and pantry aside a fridge and even a pet drawer design with 2 bowls for your furry friend.
Walk to the rear of the RV to find a door leading to a crazy cozy bunkroom consisting of 4 large bunks and a second bathroom… Yes, a second bathroom. Remember? Laying down the LAW! No more waiting for someone to get out while you do the happy dance outside the door, bathroom number 2 is equipped with a toilet and sink to make it easy to have many people tagging along on your next adventure.

This camper has all the entertaining space you can ask for with 2 large theatre seating in a row across from the tv. Sit down, recline, relax everyone. And yes, I mean everyone. Not only do you have the 4 theatre seating, but under the TV you still have your convertible booth dinette. You didn’t give up anything that you would normally have in your camper my friends!
Walking to the back of this camper you can find a large bunkhouse with 4 large bunks and a tv mounting station. What more might you find? A half-sized door coming straight out the back? Why would that be useful? Well, let me tell you, this little door is multi-use. First, it is an additional safety door for easy escape in the case of an emergency, but furthermore the storage. This door is directly in line with the bunkhouse door, meaning you can fit some extremely long items in here! Have you wanted to bring along a kayak or two for your trip but have no where to put them?! Slide them in! What about your fishing poles?
