Looking for a Unicorn?

Are there any travel trailers (pull behind, not 5th wheel) that have at least queen size bed plus 2-4 bunks, slide, and is under 27í? Or am I looking for a unicorn? Iím open to any brand, Iím just not sure where to even begin to look?

The length will be the issue but you may find one. Good luck.

Yes, but I think you will be limited to 3 bunkbeds all on top of each other on one side of the trailer. We looked at a few of these, and somewhere between 27&28 ft. Four bunkbeds requires two on one side, two on another side which means a room full of bunkbeds and this bunkhouse room will move you to the 30 range (this is what I have) Good luck in your search.

Two words: Murphy Bed.

My trailer has a queen bed, 2 bunks, a slide, and is 26'. Many trailers like mine. You'll be hard pressed to find additional bunks, though.

We used to have a 26' Wildwood TT (no slides) which had a queen bedroom in front and two bunkbeds in back It had a nice exterior door to reach the bunks which, when folded up, offered a great storage space to carry bicycles and such. There are trailers like that out there.

Perhaps weight would be a more critical criterion than a foot or two of length, in order to get the configuration you want, unless of course your parking space at home or the campgrounds you visit would have a length limitation. Hauling a trailer a foot or two longer shouldn't be a big concern.

We had a 20' hybrid when the kids were young. it had three tilt outs. one queen in the front and two full size beds. one on each side and the dinette made another queen bed. We loved that trailer.

Check toyhaulers. Most have a queen of king master and a happi-jack system in the rear that has two queen size beds there, perfect for sleeping 2 people each or multiple kiddo's. Mine (in my signature) fits your requirement other than its 32'.

Another idea is that some extra bunks can be added to any camper. One idea is that it is easy to add another bunk above an existing bunk. All one need do is hinge, or permanently frame, a single bedframe on the same wall beside one bed already nearer the floor and fold it down, or up, to use. It can be held level for sleeping by chain or other stop methods.

Manufacturers do it all the time. Of course they plan the bunk to be on a blank wall, where many campers will have windows or cabinets on every available spot. One could frame past a window if it is not an escape hatch, however.

We once had a factory overhead cabinet on the wall above our dinette that turned into a suitable top bunk over the dinette bed conversion. The entire cabinet front unlatched and neatly flipped down flat along with the flat cabinet bottom to form a bed surface. This was in a tiny, short 8' MapleLeaf brand truck camper and we finally had two children with separate beds that way. The nice oak cabinet was not really useable temporarily, but it did beneficially separate kids, as the relieved parents soon discovered.

Newer campers sometimes have an extra bunk that folds up out of the way to make sofa-like seating out of the lower bunk. It becomes an extra TV room for kids or guests.

It should even be possible to make a bunk out of a factory permanent queen bed by adding another bed frame above the first.

All these arrangements are pretty cozy, but when the family is really tired, any port in a storm. Food for thought.

Good Luck,
