Hello all. I am a new member and I am starting to research getting something larger than our A-liner. We love it but 3 kids, two adults and a dog is a bit crowded. I have been looking without much success for a TT that is under 30' (prefer 25' or less) with 4 bunk beds and a queen. With 3 kids and a dog I don't have a lot of time to build exactly what we need and I am convinced someone makes a TT like this. I have tried the advanced search in the forum with out much success...if I missed a similar thread I apologize in advance.

Plenty of choices that fit your needs. Just do a search on the internet for bunkhouse.

Google bunkhouse travel trailer and then go to each manufacturer web site and look at floorplans. Lots of options and variations. Find promising floorplans and then search for availability.

Yinzer5097,

From google Try:

You will find more choices if you go with double bunks. Once the kids are in their teens you will need 4 separate beds.

Personal choice, but I don't like outside kitchens because they steal space from the interior.

Seems that most 4 bunk bed trailers are 30' and over, but there are some under. These links show a few, along with longer ones:

A 25 footer isn't going to give you that much more room for two adults, three GROWING children and a dog IMO.

Yeah, if you want 4 separate bunks, it results in a longer trailer. Typically the master bedroom in one end and the bunks in the other. Bathroom, kitchen and living room need to fit between.

If you can live with 2 bunks (maybe use the pull out couch or drop the dinnete table), the bunks take one corner with the bathroom using the other corner allowing them to set up a layout that is 5-6ft shorter overall.

This is probably the most compact bunkhouse out there:

You might try looking at toyhaulers too. The problem with most bunkhouses is the wasted space when not sleeping. Over half the trailer is sleeping area.
