Best Small Travel Trailers with a Bathroom – 2024

Updated on July 20th, 2024

Make this the year you ditch the tent and move up to a trailer with the convenience of a private bathroom and indoor Kitchen.

Even if you don’t have a truck with a high tow capacity you can still enjoy the benefits of having an enclosed trailer.

We set out to find the best small travel trailers with a bathroom that can be towed with an SUV or smaller truck.

Why Pick a Small Travel Trailer?

  • Easier to Tow and Park
  • More Fuel Efficient
  • Fits in More Campsites
  • Easier to Store on your Property

Our Criteria for the Best Small Trailers with a bathroom:

  • Hard Shell – No Tent Popups – Hey, Bear!
  • 3,500 lbs. or less UVW
  • Trailer with a full Bathroom
  • Interior Kitchen you can actually cook in
  • Good design and construction quality

Best Small Travel Trailer Wrap-Up

More and more RVers are trading in their large travel trailers, motorhomes, and fifth wheels for the ease of traveling in a small camping trailer that doesn’t require a massive truck to tow. Aside from much lower fuel costs, owners find that reducing stress during road days and campsite parking is worth the more compact living arrangements.

Any of these small travel trailers are an excellent way for new RVers to test their camping skills and a pleasant downsize for expert RVers who are tired of paying for deluxe camping sites and winter storage for their 30-foot-plus recreational vehicles.

We hope you check out the best small campers for sale in your area to see for yourself why people are snatching them up like crazy!
