I just started looking at Class B this morning and have had just about every other RV except the Class A. I did not right off see anything that had 2 separate sleeping areas. We have an adult son with Down syndrome so we need a distinct sleeping area for him. Seems like what I have seen so far is just for 2 sleeping together. I'll keep looking but pointing me in a specific direction would be appreciated. Thank you.

What many of these models have, Roadtrek, for example, is a fold out mattress that converts the passenger seat and the third seat behind it into a bed.

To my knowledge I have never seen a MH with 2 separate bedrooms, baring the Prevost bus type MH's.

That said, almost every MH/TT has a couch and dinette that turns into a bed and the main bedroom has a pocket or accordion door that provides privacy for between the main bedroom and the 2 beds that are in the front of the RV.

The Class C has an 'added' fourth bed in the cab over with curtains for privacy and many owners add a ladder to the cab over to assist getting up there and add rails across the cab over to prevent children from falling out of the bed during the night.

Note: Many Class C manufactures are putting entertainment centers in the cab over instead of the bed but if you look around you can still find them without the entertainment center. The cab over makes a great sleeping area for children. They can keep all their personal 'stuff' up there and if feels like their own private bedroom AND its all out of the way of 'your' living area in the MH!

Check out Sportsmobile at Sportsmobile.com. They do semi-custom van conversions and can provide pretty much any floor plan you would like.

We're in just about the exact same situation you are. Presently our 21 y/o son sleeps on the couch but we would like him to have his own space some day. The only thing I've ever found like you describe are some travel trailers.
Here's one we are especially interested in: Cougar

I know there are also Class C's that have two sleeping areas.
I highly recommend going to a RV show to look at all the options.

another is Berkshire by Forest River. 390BH
These 2 Class A's have bunk beds. there is usually a door you can close between the "master" bedroom and the bunk beds. If you don't need the top bunk, maybe you can have it custom ordered without it.

It is not a B, but my small C has two separate sleeping areas. I know of couples - who are just friends - who have chosen this RV just because it provides two separate beds - a side bed in the rear and the dinette makes into a bed across the front. Check out the LTV website. Both the Libero and Serenity have the same floor plan.

As was said, on the Roadtreks you can turn the passenger seat to face the third seat and insert an optional support and mattress that turns it all into a third bed. From what many comment, this is comfortable for a child, but an adult will find it very uncomfortable. There is no room really in the aisles to put any type of a cot. The older Versatile Roadtrek models and the new Simplicity models have the same arrangement in the front as I just described with two beds. There may be more room in one of those to rig up a bed across the van in the front between and using the two rear seats.

A Class B is not going to be comfortable for three adults.

Sportsmobile can build a pop up roof that gives a nice separate sleeping area for one or two on the "second floor". I'm not sure that the single beds you can make in a Roadtrek are comfortable for an adult- I've read comments here that they aren't.
