Small Camping Trailers With Bathrooms
Having a travel trailer is an awesome thing that allows you the freedom to travel in comfort whenever and wherever you like. Unfortunately, not everyone has the ability to own a large trailer. Maybe they can’t—or don’t want to—own a huge truck to pull a big trailer. Larger campers can be a bit difficult to move, and many people don’t own a vehicle large enough to tow a giant trailer.
Whatever the reason, those who can’t own a big trailer often turn to the world of small campers to find something that suits their needs. The littlest campers can be towed by almost any vehicle and are incredibly easy to maneuver and park, making it a cinch for anyone to go camping in comfort. The problem, however, is that a lot of these tiny trailers don’t come with all the comforts of home, as not every amenity can fit into such a small space.
The amenity most often left out? The bathroom…
This is a huge deal-breaker for a lot of people, leading many to specifically seek out small camping trailers with bathrooms. Fortunately, there are plenty of those on the market, so it’s just a matter of finding the right one for you.
Why a Small Camper with a Bathroom is a Good Idea
Why look for a small camper with a bathroom? Well, there are a number of reasons a person might need a bathroom in their tiny home-on-wheels.
- Perhaps they prefer to camp off-grid and don’t like the idea of doing their business behind a tree.
- Maybe they have small children who wouldn’t necessarily make it to the campground bathroom at any given time.
- Maybe they don’t like the idea of trekking to a bathhouse to use the restroom in the middle of the night, especially if it’s an often occurrence.
These are all valid reasons to be on the hunt for small campers with bathrooms, and even if none of these reasons apply to you, looking for such a trailer is completely understandable. After all, having a bathroom onboard sure is convenient.
Besides, when you have a bathroom of your own, you can always be confident that the toilet and shower are clean—something that can’t always be said of campground restrooms.
Can I Tow a Small Travel Trailer with My SUV?
What if you want to camp but don’t want to purchase a truck? Can you tow a small travel trailer with an SUV? The answer is: Yes!
Whether your SUV can tow a particular trailer depends entirely on the towing capacity of that SUV and the loaded weight of the trailer in question. There are plenty of small trailers on the market that definitely could be pulled by most SUVs, so you can almost certainly find something that your vehicle can handle.
That said, you will definitely want to do your research first and make sure you are staying within that towing capacity and hitching up correctly. Failing to do so could result in a serious accident!
Can I Rent a Small Travel Trailer with a Bathroom?
If you’re looking into buying a small towable RV with a bathroom, it might be a good idea to try before you buy! Luckily, RVshare offers tons of rental options so you can test the waters before making your final decision.
There are an enormous number of itty-bitty travel trailers that include a toilet and shower listed right here on RVshare. All you have to do is search for RVs in your area (or the area you’ll be visiting) and choose your desired dates. Select towables, then filter the search results to show only travel trailers, toy haulers, and pop-up campers. From there, you can further narrow down your options with filters like price, amenities, length, and more.
The Best Small Travel Trailers with Bathrooms
Wondering what kind of small campers with bathrooms you should be looking for in your search for the perfect rig? There are dozens of fantastic options out there, and choosing just a few top models is nearly impossible. That said, we did manage to pick and choose a handful of our favorites to help you on your hunt.
Small 2-Person Campers with Bathrooms
We’ll start with the smallest of the small: the two-person trailers with bathrooms. These teeny tiny homes-on-wheels are perfect for couples or solo travelers, and will keep you comfortable while also giving you the flexibility to park almost anywhere.
Check out these fantastic trailer options to see if any suit your needs:
1.) R-Pod RP-171
We absolutely adore the R-Pod campers. They’re so cute and colorful and even have a bit of retro vibe. They’re small, light, and easy to tow, but they all still come equipped with a small yet functional bathroom. We especially love the RP-171 model, which is teeny tiny but perfectly comfortable for a couple looking to explore.
Price: Starting between $22,000-$25,000
Airstream is a wonderful brand. They make good, solid campers that last for years and years. On top of that, their iconic “silver bullet” look is absolutely beautiful.
The Airstream Basecamp is no exception, and the 16-foot model features everything you need (including a full bathroom) in a tiny, portable package that we know you’ll love
Price: Starting at $46,000
Looking for a teardrop trailer with a bathroom? To be honest, a bathroom is a hard thing to find in a teardrop camper. That said, the Tab S camper features just that. This means you can have all the benefits of a traditional teardrop without sacrificing the comfort and convenience offered by towing your own bathroom with you wherever you go.
Price: Starting at $22,000
Little Guy’s trailers are some of the most popular tiny travel trailers out there. Because the brand specializes in micro campers, you can bet they know exactly what they’re doing and will use space wisely.
This is definitely the case in the 17-foot Little Guy Mini Max, which includes a wet bath, a decent-sized fridge, and a versatile dinette/bed combo.
Price: Starting at $27,000
Small 3-Person Campers with Bathrooms
The next size up are the three-person campers with bathrooms. These little trailers will sleep up to three people, and are ideal for couples who occasionally have a guest, as well as families with only one child.
1.) Scamp 13’ Deluxe
Like the look of the Casita, but need something a little bigger? Scamp is a comparable brand that makes a bigger, but still tiny camper with a bathroom that we like nearly as much.
The Scamp campers are some of the most popular lightweight fiberglass trailers on the market. In fact, this brand has an outright cult-like following, and we can see why. Scamp trailers are small and light, but still feature high-quality materials. They are made to last, and because of the way they’re built, they rarely leak.
We particularly love the Scamp 13’ Deluxe, which is super duper little but still has a bathroom on board, and even has room to sleep a third person.
Price: Starting at $19,000
Like the Scamp brand, Winnebago has a devoted fanbase. Why? Because Winnebago also takes pride in their products, turning out high-quality trailers that last.
The Micro Minnie is no exception to this rule, and it packs all the things people love about the Winnebago brand into a very small package. In the 1708FB this includes a full kitchen, a bed, a table, and of course, a full bathroom.
Price: Starting at $41,125
Small 4-Person Campers with Bathrooms
Finally, there are the small four-person campers with bathrooms. These are the largest options on our list, but are far from being objectively large when compared to other trailers on the market. They sleep up to 4 people, making them great for a family of four or a couple looking to have a bit of extra space.
Remember that Scamp trailer we mentioned earlier? Casita trailers are very similar, and the Casita brand might just be Scamp’s biggest competitor. That said, we love both brands and find that both companies make some excellent small campers, including some with bathrooms.
When it comes to Casita, we highly recommend the 17’ Casita Deluxe Spirit, which sleeps 4 comfortably and includes a lovely little bathroom that’ll keep everyone clean and comfortable.
Price: Starting at $32,694
Another Airstream product, the Bambi is a bit bigger than the Basecamp, making it a great choice for those who love the quality of Airstream but need more room than the tiny Basecamp offers.
The Bambi 16RB sleeps 4 people, features a full kitchen and bathroom, and offers the amazing modern look and feel that all Airstream trailers have.
Price: Starting at $59,300
The Happier Camper products are incredibly unique in that they include modular furniture that can be changed to suit your needs. These fiberglass trailers are made with very few seams, meaning leaks rarely happen, and everything on the inside and outside of these RVs is of the highest quality.
While the smaller HC1 does not include a bathroom option at all, the newer, bigger Traveler does have a bathroom, meaning you can go more places and see more things.
Price: Starting at $64,950
4.) Escape 17B
The Escape is yet another fiberglass trailer made in the style of the Scamp and Casita trailers. With options such as a built-in solar panel and extra bunk, this camper is sure to be super comfortable. Just be sure you get the 17B rather than the 17A, as the A model does not come equipped with a bathroom.
Price: Starting at 34,720
This is the only pop-up camper on our list, That said, all small pop-up campers with bathrooms make good options for those looking for a lightweight trailer with all the comforts of home.
We especially like the Rockwood Freedom 2318G because it’s super small when closed, relatively small when opened, and still has a full kitchen and beds for 4. There is also an option to add a toilet and shower in this RV, making it a fabulous choice.
Price: Starting around $15,000
As you can see, there are many reasons one might want a small camper with bathroom. Luckily, there are tons of options on the market, and you can find such models for sale and for rent, meaning you’re sure to find something that’ll allow you to camp in comfort, no matter your situation.
