Let’s face it – lofts are just fun!
Maybe it’s because they remind us of being kids, making secret hideouts and book nooks where we could sneak away. Maybe it’s because clambering up into a loft is like getting up in a bunkbed or a treehouse. Beds are usually on the ground…and when they aren’t, it’s kind of exciting.
Lofts serve a practical purpose as well. Because RVs are small and floor space is at a premium, it makes sense to build up instead of out. Space that would otherwise be wasted can be put to good use as an extra sleeping spot with a loft.
We’ve rounded up 11 of our favorite RVs and campers with lofts so you can see for yourself!
RV with loft
There are plenty of choices when it comes to finding RVs with lofts. You will want to look at the lofts in person to decide which one fits you best – some are comfortable for adults, while others are a tight squeeze for taller people but perfectly suited for children. Here are some of our favorite RVs and travel trailers with lofts.
The Cedar Creek has the sleeping space in the rear of the trailer, including a loft with two bunks. The bunks are perfectly suited for kids, and adults who don’t mind crawling up into a tight spot will be okay with the arrangement as well. The loft has three feet of headroom, but there are also windows to let in plenty of light and give the feeling of more space.
The Holiday Rambler Admiral 28A features a dropdown queen bed right over the steering wheel and passenger side of the vehicle. It offers plenty of room, including another king bed in the back, and a 68″ jackknife sofa.
This loft is so roomy it feels more like a bedroom than a tiny hideaway. The beds are bunkmats – not as thick as an actual bed mattress, but with plenty of padding to sleep, and the loft includes a nightstand and cabinets. The loft also has windows which let in lots of natural light and make the space feel even more like a “real” bedroom.
The loft on this travel trailer is quite spacious, with two separate rooms that sleep three people total. Adults still have to crawl, but it’s not too tight a squeeze and kids will be thrilled with their own upstairs space.
The Jayco has a tiny loft bunk tucked in to this travel trailer. There is only room for a mattress, so it’s a great spot for kids, or for an adult who’s using it just to sleep and not planning to spend any more time up there. A Queen bed and hide-a-bed provide plenty of sleeping space for several more people.
The Bighord Traveler has a loft bunk right above another sleeping area that has two beds and a TV. The loft is just big enough to sleep, but kids may be thrilled to be up there – it resembles the top bunk on a bunk bed.
Campers with lofts
Along with Class A RVs, travel trailers, and 5th wheels with lofts, you can also consider Class C campers with lofts. Class C campers, by definition, have a loft area above the cab of the truck which adds lots of usable space to a tiny area.
This camper sleeps at least eight, and offers great options for an outdoor camp kitchen and outdoor entertainment center with an LCD TV, stereo, DVD player, and more. It has a power awning (important if you’re going to be spending all that time outside!), and has a roomy bunk in a loft area above the cab.
Winnebagos are synonymous with RVing, and for good reason. The company has been in business for a good long time, and is known for making long-lasting, reliable motorhomes year after year. The Minnie Winnie is one of the smaller Class Cs, but can sleep up to seven people and still packs in a shower and toilet, a kitchen, and dining area.
The Prestige is a larger Class C camper with plenty of space. Two slide-outs mean a roomy bedroom and extra space in the living room and kitchen. It sleeps between 7-11 people, and includes a spacious loft area for sleeping above the cab up front.
10.) Tiffin Wayfarer
The Wayfarer has leather seats and a sofa, and luxury touches like hardwood cabinets, a memory foam mattress, and a skylight in the shower for more light. It can sleep up to six, including in the luxuriously roomy loft over the cab in the front of the camper.
This Class C camper is on the bigger side, with plenty of room for people and a garage in back for carrying extras like bikes, kayaks, and other fun toys (hence, the name). The rig also offers a queen-sized murphy bed that folds up to make better use of the space during the day. It also has an outdoor patio that folds off the back, with the garage door serving as a roof to cover your deck. The loft area over the cab features a sleeping space and a TV on one end.
