One of the greatest perks of traveling with an RV is the ability to easily bring along the whole family. In your home on wheels, you have everything you need to make the most of a getaway, and when it comes time to sleep, you can’t beat the added space a bunkhouse provides. With room for four, six, eight, or even more travelers, bunkhouse RVs offer the ultimate in roadtripping comfort.

Important Features to Look for in Bunkhouse RVs

When determining which bunkhouse floor plan is best for you, keep the following questions in mind:

How many people do you need to sleep? 

Look for options that offer comfort for the entire family. Make sure that there’s enough room to spread out, move around, and effortlessly sleep everyone that you’re bringing along.

What’s the weight limit of your bunks? 

Double-size bunks are increasingly popular and can be used to fit teens and adult guests more comfortably. Check weight limits for these beds, especially upper bunks, to ensure you’re safely within the manufacturer’s recommendation.

Do you prefer open-concept or separation? 

Some bunk rooms are self-contained spaces that allow your kids and other guests a degree of privacy, while others save space with a more open concept. Think about how you’ll be using the space to determine how much separation is needed for your family.

What about all your stuff? 

Sleeping space is crucial, but so is storage. Make sure there’s dedicated clothing space for every person in your traveling party, as well as ample room for food, entertainment items, and other necessities that you’ll need when traveling as a group.
