We know how hard it is to get everything we want in life.
We all want to eat a pile of pancakes without adding a few extra pounds, plan a vacation without thinking about a budget, and get an RV the size of a smart car with all of the comforts of home.
I can’t help you with your pancake problem, but let’s take a look at some of the smallest RVs with a shower and toilet.
If you have the funds to get a huge class A motorhome with more comforts than most of us have in our stationary homes, then go for it.
Most RVs indeed have showers and even tub’s that give you the ultimate in camping comforts, but can you call it camping?
If you want to be a self-sufficient camping family, you need an RV with a well-designed bathroom.
If you choose poorly, you will find yourself preferring the public bathhouse.
Before we get to my list of the smallest RVs with a shower and toilet, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
If you are looking for a small camper with a full-size shower and space to dance as you sing your favorite shower tunes, you may be disappointed.
A bathroom that’s designed to get wet is called a wet bath. There is a sink, a toilet, and a floor drain in the house.
It does not have a separate shower area since the entire thing functions as a shower.
The best way to use the limited space in small campers is with the shower and toilet combinations.
If you would like to have a full bath, I have included some small campers that have a separate shower stall.
There is a small RV with a TUB, don’t miss it. It can be hard to get a good idea of how the bathroom looks in real life if you just look at the RV floor plan.
It’s one thing to see a small camper bathroom on a video tour or at an RV show. It’s also possible to use it for a day or two.
I highly recommend that you rent an RV with a small bathroom that is similar to the one you plan to buy. RVshare is a great option if you want to do that.
RVshare allows you to search for RVs to rent by location and type, as well as add the model name of the camper you want to buy with the option to open the filters.
It would be great if you could take it for a test drive to make sure it works before you spend a lot of money on a camper with a bathroom you can’t fit in.
You might think of either a small travel trailer or camper, a class B motorhome, or a small class C motorhome when you think of small RVs.
Small RVs that are less than 20 feet long can be found in all of these categories.
They are lightweight, easier to maneuver, and usually cheaper, which is why so many of us prefer these types of small campers.
These aren’t listed in any particular order, so please keep that in mind. The advantages and disadvantages of each option can be found here.
It is up to you to find a camper with the right features for your family. The good old pull-behind travel trailers are the first thing we will discuss.
These are the ones for you if you already have a vehicle for pulling a small trailer and you are on a budget.
Fortunately, most of these small travel trailers with bathrooms are light enough that you can pull them with some smaller SUVs and trucks.
The little guy is the first thing we should talk about. This is a small RV with an overall length of over 17 feet and a dry weight of over 2,300 pounds.
Don’t let its cute qualities fool you. It is amazing how much space they have in this little travel trailer.
The area that converts into a bed, as well as the kitchenette with a sink, stove, and microwave, make this a great place to stay.
They have made the most of the space by not trying to squeeze a sink into the wet bath. The kitchen sink is right outside the bath, so it is easy to use after taking care of business.
There is a lack of privacy, one of the disadvantages. The door to the wet bath is similar to a traditional shower door, with a textured glass panel.
Everyone in the RV can see what is happening in the wet bath, although the details may be hard to make out.
The Little Guy Mini Max is an excellent choice for children. It is nice for couples who go on solo camping trips because it is one of the smallest RVs on our list.
The list of RVs would not be complete without an Airstream. Those long silver bullet-style RVs are what most of us think of when we think about Airstreams.
The Basecamp is one of the smaller options that have the same quality and appearance as Airstream. It’s 16 feet long, and it’s called the Basecamp 16.
That means it is shorter than the vehicle you will use to tow it. It is one of the smaller wet baths on our list, but it is still big enough to move around in.
It has some simple features, like a small mirror on the back of the bathroom door and hooks on the inside to hang a towel or toiletry bag, that make it easier to use.
The panoramic windows at the front of the trailer are great for small RVs that feel a little claustrophobic. They show you a 180-degree view of the campsite you found.
The trailer gives you more space and a full bathroom. The largest of the travel trailer options, this is just over 21 feet long.
It is a nice middle ground with enough space to camp with one or two small kids. The bathroom has a shower and toilet as well as a large Vanity with extra countertop space.
It makes you feel at home and allows you to unpack your family’s toothbrush cup. It is possible to sleep three adults or a couple with two small kids with the bed folded down.
A small RV with a full bathroom. Is it feasible? It can be done with the Jayco Hummingbird 16MRB.
While most of the baths make it difficult to get your business done, this small RV has a spacious full bath with a separate shower, sink, and toilet.
The shower is a little tight for larger people, but the toilet has plenty of space around it, so you won’t have to worry about banging your knees off the sink.
Some of the cabinets in the bathroom are great for storing extra clothes, linens, and snacks you don’t want your kids to find.
If you’re looking for the smallest of the small RVs with a shower and toilet, the Scamp is a good choice. It is 13 feet long and weighs 1,500 pounds.
This little guy can be pulled by even smaller SUVs like the Toyota RAV4 or the Subaru Forester.
There are many different versions of Scamp 13, but the one with the front bathroom is the only one that has a wet bath.
Despite its small size, they managed to squeeze a sink into the wet bath and give you enough room to move around a bit.
If you are not ready to upgrade to a larger vehicle but still want the self-sufficiency of a small camper with its bathroom, this is a great option.
