Does it even exist???

My wife and I have a Georgetown class A and we enjoy the whole world of RV-ing this way, and have for a number of years now.

In talking with my brother and his wife (both in their 60's) they're looking for a small travel trailer (the shorter the better), with a REAL shower (not a wet bath), a walk around queen bed, and......a toy hauler or at least enough room to take 2 twelve foot kayaks!!!

I don't know any makes or models to even start suggesting to him.

Can anyone help?

Would it be possible to put the kayaks on the TV instead of in the trailer?

If all they are looking for is a shower and walk around queen bed they have a lot to choose from.

After a quick look around it's looking like the shortest the trailer could be to get a walk around queen bed and enough garage space to accomodate 12ft is about 30ft. As for forest river that would be the work and play 25wb.

I took a look at couple of other manufacturers as well and it was the same result. All about 30 to 32 ft.

2016 25WB Work and Play with our gas EZGO golf cart and 13' kayak. There are many bands that fit their wishes. We have a walk around bed and standup shower.

I have a FR Salem Cruise Lite 251ssxl. Meets your requirements, but it is kinda long. I had the axles flipped so I can drag it to the places I like to go. So far, no complaints.

They could carry the 2 Kayaks atop a properly equipped SUV that has the capabilities of pulling a 5000 lb trailer. There are many travel trailers that fit there requirements and the TV capabilities.

A lot of choices were and will be suggested, all good, the final choice lies with the happy campers. We are all different.

I carry (2) 14 foot kayaks that sit atop a Trac Rac on my truck. We pull a 24 foot Palomino Solaire.

The toy hauler aspect of it is going to keep them in the 26'+ class. I have owned a 16' with walk around queen and stand up shower (not a wet bath). Happened to be a Coleman CM16FBS. There are plenty of others out there with similar floor plans.

I suggest carrying the kayaks on your tow vehicle also. Once you get to the campsite you're going to need to haul them that way anyway.
I have a forest river sandstorm and there's plenty a room for kayaks inside. However camping with them in there is less than convenient.

The wife and I have a 2016 2304KS. It's small enough to fit on our driveway and large enough to be very comfortable for the 2 of us and our 2 small dogs. I've done a bunch of modifications to make it even better for us, but as it comes from the factory it's still a wonderfully comfortable little trailer. The Murphy bed is comfortable, the shower is a reasonable size, and with the KS model the sink side is a slid out with plenty of counter space for the coffee pot and toaster. We've put about 8,000 miles on it with no problems

I have a 32 ft class C motorhome and we carry our kayaks on a utility trailer. The rack is made out of PVC pipe which is both inexpensive and easy to make. Got the idea from a pick-up TV pulling a trailer.

I have a Wolfpack 2412 toyhauler with a 15 foot garage. I haul 4 kayaks 13.5 feet long on a trailer. I pull the whole rig into my camper when we travel. Once there, drop the trailer outside & still have an easy way to move the kayaks to & from the water, avoiding the lifting & strapping down, poor aerodynamics of being on top of a vehicle. This trailer seems to fit your needs, check them out.

Look at the 16'-20' toy haulers. Most have a motorized bed that drops down from the ceiling but some have a Murphy bed that allow walk around room. It would be simple enough to build a pvc rack to stack the kayaks down the center of the trailer. (Add wheels to it and use it to launch the kayaks.)

You can always take out the installed sofa/drop down bed and install a Murphy bed if that is what you want. I have a 19' toy hauler that I took the sofas out of (4 bolts each) and added two swivel rockers for a trip last summer. I still loaded a full size motorcycle in it for the trip.

I have the Grey Wolf 26rr. It's 30 ft, but does have walk around bed and two kayaks would fit.
