Do you need a smaller trailer still capable of holding a large family or group? If so, you may consider getting a trailer under 35 feet. Smaller trailers are a good option because they fit into most campsites and are much easier to maneuver than large trailers, which makes things easier for the driver. However, smaller trailers are still very nice and compact, and typically can hold anywhere from 6-10 people comfortably, meaning that they can still fit your needs perfectly.
Not all trailers are created equal. Some trailers are higher quality or fit your needs better than other trailers. When searching for the perfect trailer, you shouldn’t sacrifice having a nice place to stay with everything you need because you need a smaller trailer. These 9 trailers are the best of the bunkhouse travel trailers under 35 feet to help you make the right choice of the trailer for your family and vacation.
1. Grand Design RV Transcend Xplor 265BH
The Grand Design RV Transcend Xplor 265BH is one of the larger trailers on this list, coming in at 32 feet and 9 inches. One of the many excellent features of the Transcend is two different doors into the trailer, one directly into the main living space and another into the main bedroom.
In the main bedroom, you have a queen-sized bed with plenty of overhead storage space and a TV setup area on the far wall. Separating the bedroom from the main living space is the bathroom, which has a toilet with a foot-activated flush and a shower with a surrounding tub.
The main area may seem a little tight, but there is still plenty of space to maneuver. To start, you have more storage than you need, including a pet drawer, a microwave, a 3 burner range stove and oven, a large fridge, and a large stainless steel sink. The trailer also comes with a 32″ LED television for the entertainment area and has a sofa and, of course, bunk beds.
The amenities that come with the Transcend trailer include a 16′ awning for a more enjoyable outdoor experience, the prementioned two-door entrance, a 42″ x 22″ rear storage, a walk-on roof, a backup camera, and quite a bit more.
2. Coachmen Freedom Express Liberty Edition 292BHDSLE
The Coachman Freedom Express Liberty Edition 292BHDSLE is the largest and the most impressive trailer on this list, coming in at 33 feet and 4 inches. It has tons of amenities. The first of these is the 18-foot awning, but along with that, you have two storage areas that are both accessible from outside the trailer and from the master bedroom.
The master bedroom, along with the pass-through storage, comes with a vaulted queen bed with underneath storage and additional overhead storage. At the foot of the bed, you have the spinnable fireplace and entertainment center/TV, meaning that even if it is old, you can be in bed and enjoy a movie with the fireplace keeping you warm.
In the main living area, you have a sofa that can be pulled out into a bed, the dining table, which also can become a bed, and access to the bunkhouse, which contains 4 more beds and plenty of storage. The bathroom comes with a full tub/shower, a foot-activated toilet, and more storage for toiletries.
Lastly, the kitchen contained a 3 burner stove and oven combo, a large fridge, stainless steel sink, and a good amount of counter space to be able to prepare your food on. A large family will fit easily into this trailer and have plenty of space, though it is more challenging to drive this trailer around than some of the smaller models on this list.
3. Cruiser Embrace EL280
Another 33-foot and 4-inch travel trailer, the Cruiser Embrace EL280, has plenty of storage to bring everything you need and beds for up to 8 people. The central amenity that sets this trailer apart from many others on this list is the outside kitchen which comes with a 2-burner stove and a sink.
The main bedroom comes with overhead storage, closets on either side of the bed, and a king-sized valued bed with storage underneath. The bunkhouse at the opposite end of the trailer contains 4 beds and more storage. In the living area, you have a couch, the dining area, and a kitchen, with a 3 burner stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator, large stainless steel sink, and plenty of counter space to prep food.
4. East To West RV Della Terra 250BH
The East To West RV Della Terra 250BH, 31 feet, and 1 inch, is another excellent option for a trailer with plenty of amenities and space for up to 10 people to sleep. Along with this, you can get several excellent options for additional features.
The bedding options include the king-sized bed, the pullout bed, the dining booth, and the bunkhouse with double bunk beds. The master bedroom, along with the pass-through storage, comes with a vaulted queen bed with underneath storage and additional overhead storage.

5. Coachmen Viking Ultra-Lite 17 BH Travel Trailer
The Coachman Viking Ultra-Lite 17BH Travel Trailer is the smallest trailer on this list, but it makes the most of its 20 feet and 4 inches. While it doesn’t have as much space as many other trailers on this list, the Viking still manages to come with a full-sized 54″ x 74″ bed and two 28″ x 72″ beds for the bunkhouse. It also has a shower, tub in the bathroom, and a kitchen with a two-burner stove, microwave, sink, fridge, pantry, and lots of storage located in overhead space throughout the whole trailer.
Because the trailer is just over 20 feet, it is one of the most maneuverable trailers on this list, and it also is one of the cheapest as it is small, compact, and doesn’t have many amenities to drive up the price.
All of the windows have tinted safety glass for security and privacy, with a bathroom skylight to let in lots of natural light by day. By the time night hits, there are several LED lights to make sure that the trailer is still well-lit, and if you want some amenities, there are some that can be added for an extra cost.
There are certainly benefits to having a trailer this small. A larger family may need more space than that available in this trailer, but a family of 4 will fit comfortably in this trailer and enjoy the amenities it includes and the easy maneuverability.
6. Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite 25BRDS
The Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite 25BRDS has an extremely unique design for a smaller trailer. This is because instead of having a large main bed at all times, this trailer has a queen-sized murphy bed that pulls down over the couch. This limits the overall amount of sleeping space but does leave more space open when you have the bed tucked away, which makes a big difference in this 25-foot, 11-inch trailer.
Under the sofa, you will also have plenty of storage for all of your stuff. And when it comes to the bunkhouse, you will have lots of room as the bunkbeds are doubles, meaning 4 people can sleep on the bunk beds. The dining area is exceptionally spacious and has an option that can act as an extra bed, though this isn’t guaranteed.
When you get to the kitchen, you will find a twin bowl sink and countertops that can be extended into the living space to make the most of the space you have. The stove is a 3-burner and has a glass cover, with a microwave located underneath. The kitchen also has a double-door refrigerator and a 32-inch LED TV for when you are cooking, eating, or just relaxing.
The bathroom is very simple, with a foot flush toilet, a shower with a tub surround, and a fan to prevent steam from building up since the shower has a hot water option. The shower also has a skylight to let in natural light during the day.
7. Heartland North Trail 24BHS Travel Trailer
Coming in at a size of nearly 28 feet, the Heartland North Trail 24BHS has room for up to 8 sleepers while remaining a compact yet comfortable trailer. With a king bed in the main sleeping area and two bunk rooms, there will be plenty of space for your group.
Along with the two bunkhouses and the main bedroom, the dining area can be turned into a bed, making even more room for someone to sleep on. The kitchen comes with a large refrigerator, a 4-burner oven and stove combo, and a large stainless steel sink; however, it is a bit lacking in counter space to prepare meals.
There is plenty more to enjoy as the exterior of the Heartland comes with both an awning and an exterior kitchen area so that you can prepare food both in and out of this trailer. The bathroom has one of the largest showers from trailers on this list, along with a foot-activated toilet, sink, and cabinets for plenty of space for toiletries.
8. Jayco Jay Flight SLX 7 184BS
When you want to go on a camping trip but still enjoy the luxury of a trailer, then the Jayco Jay Flight SLX 7 is one of the best options that you can choose from. This is because this 20-foot 8-inch trailer was built specifically to work on uneven terrain and dry camping, meaning it doesn’t need any hookup. It sleeps up to six people comfortably.
The inside of the trailer is just as lovely as it comes with window shades, vinyl flooring, and plenty of storage to bring everything you are going to need. The kitchen includes plenty of counter space, a 2-burner stove, a 3 cubic foot refrigerator with temperature control, microwave, oven, pantry, and an acrylic sink.
The main sleeping area comes with a queen-sized bed, and there also are bunk beds that come with up to a 300-pound capacity. And if this isn’t enough sleeping space, the dining area can convert into a sleeping area for two adults.
9. KZ Sportsmen Classic 181BH
The KZ Sportsmen Classic 181 BH has a total length of just 20 feet and nine inches, far under the 35 feet bar. However, despite being far under the average size, this trailer is still like a compact home with everything that you are going to need when traveling while still having an open feel.
In the main living area is the main bed, which is a large queen-sized bed with overhead storage. To the left of the bed, you have a lovely kitchen for a trailer. With a 7 cubic foot electric refrigerator, two-burner stove, microwave, countertop for food prep, and plenty of storage space, this is a great kitchen. And there is also the large stainless steel sink that will have plenty of space to set and ash large pots and pans.
Other amenities this trailer has are the 14-foot awning, which will make enjoying the outdoors more comfortable, along with two interior speakers so you can listen to music easily. The trailer’s control system is located on a panel near the entry, and the trailer also comes with the KZ RV app, which will help with trip planning, maintenance, and service tracking.
