11 Small Campers with Bathrooms: Pop Ups and Trailers

Small campers with bathrooms offer the perfect escape combination. Because sometimes, you just need to get away. Period. Away from the media. The hustle. The connectivity. Away from the noise.

But…it can be really hard to also be away from the toilet no matter how much you love tiny travel trailers. Let’s face it: For some of us, that toilet is an absolute necessity in order to actually enjoy an escape.

So we took some time to research our options. We found some amazing small campers with bathrooms we wanted to share with you. Check it out!

Pop Ups, Teardrops and Tiny Trailers that Have a Bathroom

Luckily, the RV industry has something to offer just about every “escape artist” out there. Whether you feel that you need luxury on the road, or you just need that “ivory throne”, it’s not incredibly hard to find exactly what works for you.

But we are going to make it even easier for you by pulling together this list of the top 11 Small Campers with Bathrooms.

These lightweight escape pods will allow you to detach and recharge without throwing a kink in your “bathroom routine”, if you know what I mean. And we will cover pop up campers, teardrop campers and tiny travel trailers so you get a good sampling of your options.

One important point to make: Smaller doesn’t always mean cheaper. It’s very clear that you pay for innovation and for overall quality as well. So brace your bank account for this deep dive into the world of (not-always-so-cheap) small camping trailers with bathrooms.

Let’s start with small pop up campers with bathrooms.

Pop Up Campers with Bathrooms

We’ve got three fantastic pop up campers with bathrooms to start off our list of adventure capsules. All three of these have not only the toilet as an option, but also the shower. You will have all the conveniences you need to keep smelling fresh and clean while you get neck deep in nature. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Aliner Family Scout A-Frame Pop Up Camper

There’s no better place to start off our list of small campers with bathrooms than with a high quality hero of tiny camping: the Aliner Family Scout.


Born in Bend, Oregon in the early 1970s, this revolutionary design was the brain child of Ralph Tait. Ralph and his two sons worked tirelessly for years, after moving to Pennsylvania, to continue selling these exceptional recreational vehicles.

Father and one son would build a unit while the other son would drive the country with the Aliner in tow until he sold it. When they got too tired, they retired in 2007 and the company is now under new ownership that continues to follow the same founding principles.

If you love pop up campers with bathrooms, look no further.


The Aliner Family Scout offers plenty of handy features and benefits at a price that is doable for the average adventuring family with a passion for the outdoors. Just take a look at the floor plan of this particular model and all of the amenities it includes:

If you have to have that toilet on the go and you want to get out there in unquestioned quality and comfort, the Aliner Family Scout deserves your undivided attention.

Note that if you want your escape pod to include the convenience of a propane connection and a water pump, you will need to consider an upgrade to the Aliner LXE model.

Jayco Jay Sport Pop Up Camping Trailer

Next in our lineup of small camping trailers with bathrooms, we go to a proven performer in the RV world.

If you have spent any time at all exploring the world of RVing, then I can be almost certain that you have come across the name Jayco. They are a major player in the RV space and offer everything from camper trailers like the Jay Sport Pop Up Camper all the way up to Class A motorhomes. They hit every major group in between those as well, so it’s hard to miss them!

The Jayco Jay Sport Camping Trailer earned the Trailer Life Readers' Choice Award in 2018. A perfect example of small camping trailers with bathrooms.

But the Jay Sport Camping Trailer is what we are focused on today, and more specifically on the 12SC floor plan option. It has so much to offer the outdoor adventurer, including the all-important option to add in a bath/shower in lieu of a storage cabinet near the entrance.

With the large dinette situated in a slide that pops out, your livable space expands and you have the ability to truly enjoy your camping experience with the whole family along for the ride.

With a dry hitch weight of only 235 lbs on this pop up camper, you will be able to tow it with just about any small SUV or crossover. That said, always check with vehicle manufacturer to ensure a safe towing experience!


  • Length: 18 feet 7 inches
  • Width: 85 inches
  • Travel Height: 59 inches
  • Weight: Approximately 2,385 pounds

That warranty means you can enjoy your escape with peace of mind, knowing that Jayco stands behind their product and will take care of you.

Aliner Somerset Utah Pop Up Camper

With the history and quality of the Aliner brand that we covered earlier, it really shouldn’t come as a shock that we are featuring a second small camper from this brand in our Top 11 lineup.

But because this model, the Somerset Utah Camping Trailer, is a more standard pop up camper design, you will find a bit more space to move around. In fact, they refer to the Somerset lineup as “an open floorplan for the open road”. And it shows!

The Utah comes equipped with two king size beds measuring 77″ x 70″. In addition, the dinette converts into an additional bed measuring 71″ x 43″ and a fourth Slide Out Bed is also available right by the entrance.

As you can see in the floor plan, the Utah comes standard with a toilet and also with an outdoor shower. You have the option of upgrading to an indoor shower with cassette toilet.


  • Length: 18 feet 9 inches
  • Width: 89 inches
  • Travel Height: 58 inches
  • Weight: Approximately 2,760 pounds


As we mentioned above in the Family Scout small camper section, all Aliner campers come with many standard features. Here are a few more standard features you will find on the Utah:

  • Air Conditioner Prepped Roof
  • Outdoor Grill
  • Self-Storing Back-Saver Bed Supports
  • Double 20-pound LP Tanks with Cover
  • 30 cu. ft. Waterproof Storage Bin

I think you will find a lot to love about the Aliner Somerset Utah Camping Trailer. As one of our favorite small campers on this list, it clearly shines in many ways. It is also an affordable option. Much more affordable than the teardrop trailers we are about to cover, which can easily double your cash outlay!

And you can click here to see Aliner’s full lineup of Somerset camping trailers.

Remember to always check with the vehicle manufacturers to ensure a safe towing experience.

Teardrop Campers with Bathrooms

As I warned, when you move from pop up campers to teardrop campers, you can expect a sizeable jump in cost. While the Alto Safari Condo we cover below is likely the most expensive option, the others are not too far behind.

But believe me when I say that these are all very high quality recreational vehicles that are absolutely build for the “long haul”. Compared to a pop up camper, you can expect them to last years longer because of the more durable components and lower risk of water damage.

Let’s take a look at the first teardrop camper with bathroom in our lineup!

TAB 400 Teardrop Camper

To start off our list, we’ve chosen the sleek, stylish and well-appointed TAB 400 Teardrop Camper by nuCamp RV which sleeps up to 3 people. Yes, it does also come equipped with a wet bath, including fold down sink as an added space-saving feature.

NuCamp states that their goal is to furnish you with the most exceptional recreational trailer on the market:

In building every nüCamp product, our charge is to construct it with the utmost care, employing only the highest grade materials. From the all-aluminum framing to the beautiful, pure birch interiors to each individual component, we take great pride in the construction process and strive for perfection. We want you to enjoy your trailer in every way possible: functionally, practically, and aesthetically.

There’s something about that teardrop trailer shape that grabs you, right? It jumps right out and says, “You must have me. You must have me now.” Or maybe it’s just me…

Either way, you are going to love the floor plan and the features that this bad boy is loaded with. It is quite impressive, I must say.


  • Length: 18 feet 3 inches
  • Width: 90 inches
  • Travel Height: 104 inches
  • Weight: Approximately 2,864 pounds


The TAB 400 base package has a lot to offer, including all of the following:

  • Central Air Conditioner
  • 2-Way (propane / electric) Refrigerator
  • Sink, Shower, Toilet
  • 2-Burner Stove
  • 3-Way Fan-Tastic Fan
  • 24″ TV, DVD, AM/FM, Bluetooth®
  • 22 gallon fresh water tank
  • 18 gallon gray water tank
  • 12 gallon black water tank

Are you concerned about your ability to tow this beautiful vehicle with your own vehicle? With a wet tongue weight of only 372 lbs, most SUVs and well-equipped crossovers will be capable!

As a reminder, always check manufacturer specs for your vehicle and ensure that you are able to tow safely. Don’t simply take our notes or anyone’s word for it. Safety first.

What else can we say about this beauty? If you want all of the details, including accurate pricing for the features you are interested in, head over to the nuCamp website to start your journey toward adventure. They have plenty more to offer besides just the TAB 400, so check them all out!

Alto Teardrop Camper by Safari Condo

Prepare to be blown away by the remarkable and stunning design. It’s one of the best small campers we are highlighting. Once you see this one, I guarantee you will never forget it!

When we talk about Safari Condos, we immediately think about “breaking the mold”. They have brought innovation to the teardrop trailer space, and it is innovation that almost takes your breath away! Yes, that is a retractable roof!

On their website, they highlight the Alto as “A Green Travel Trailer”:

Faced with the steady increase in the price of gasoline and the social responsibility we all share to save non-renewable fossil energy, Safari Condo wanted to design ultra-light travel trailers with the lowest possible drag coefficient. Travel trailers meeting these two criteria could then be readily towed by smaller vehicles. Even more environmentally conscious, Safari Condo also wanted its materials selection to be not only lightweight but for the most part recyclable.

I love the interior layout of the Alto Teardrop Camper. They made good use of the windows in this space. It’s so bright with a lot of natural light flowing in. I think it’s inspiring and waking up in this little camper would be joyful.

You Must Head North of the Border to See This Beauty!

We have to let you know that they only way we know of that you can get “up close and personal” with one of these beauties is to head up to Canada. Safari Condo is based in Quebec, and all of their dealerships are located in Canada (mostly in Quebec, one in Ontario and one in British Columbia).


  • Length: 17 feet 3 inches
  • Width: 83 inches
  • Travel Height: 84 inches
  • Weight: 1,867 pounds


As you can see, this is the lightest small camper we have looked at so far at well under 2,000 lbs dry weight! That’s even more impressive when you review all that it has to offer.

  • Sleeps up to 3
  • Electric Brakes
  • 72′ x 76″ King Size Bed
  • Fixed Flush Toilet
  • Interior Shower with Curtain
  • 13-foot Removable Awning (optional)

I’m guessing you’re feeling the need to see this wonder in action, right? I know I was…so here’s a video tour to help you really understand the unique nature of this rig:

Video Tour of Alto Teardrop by Safari Condo

Fair warning: If you don’t like attention, steer clear of this small camper! Because I guarantee you that everyone and their dog at every RV park (or gas station!) will want to get a look inside. Absolutely no doubt about it.

And be prepared for a little sticker shock since prices start at over USD $40,000 (based on the 2026 model year).

Little Guy Mini Max Teardrop Camper

Don’t let the name fool you at all, friend. This Little Guy camper packs a big punch with its sleek profile and cool tinted windows!

Founded in a garage in 2003, Little Guy Trailers has produced 17 different models of tiny trailers over the past 20+ years. Owned by Liberty Outdoors, the company states that:

Little Guy Teardrop Camper Trailers are the most identifiable, economical and modern teardrops on the road today.

Who are we to argue? One look at the Little Guy Mini Max tells you that it’s up to nothing but good. And the floor plan will further convince you that you need to take a closer look.

As you can see from the floor plan, it is not short on features and amenities. We’ll show some more of those features in just a minute, but first of all take a look at the specs. This mini bad boy is under 2,000 lbs! That makes it towable by so many vehicles out there. Don’t try it with your Prius, please.

  • Length: 17 feet 2 inches
  • Width: 81 inches
  • Travel Height: 102 inches
  • Weight: 1,993 pounds


What else does this tiny giant in the teardrop world offer to you as a camping enthusiast?

  • 15-inch Premium Tires
  • 4 Insulated Dual Pane Windows

So what are you waiting for? Get on over to the online home of the Mini Max and get the full scoop on this adventure capsule!

Tiny Camper Trailers with Bathrooms

Alright, we have knocked out two of our three categories of small campers with bathrooms. We’ve seen the pop up campers and we’ve gotten a good look at some revolutionary teardrop campers. Now, let’s turn our attention to the more traditional travel trailers…of the tiny variety.

Barefoot Caravans Tiny Camper

I was tempted to save this one for last since it is probably the most unique in terms of overall style. But why not just lead off with it instead and get you all fired up!

You might be thinking, “Now that is a fresh look! Where did that thing come from?” And the answer is: Great Britain!

That’s right, this is not an American innovation here. It is 100% British and they are very proud of that, which they should be.

Up until recently, the only way to get your hands one of these UK marvels was to have it shipped “over the pond”. Now nuCamp, the makers of the TAB 320 and 400 teardrop trailers, manufactures Barefoot trailers for the North American market. Pretty cool!

And of course, you can look at the Fast Facts below for overall dimensions and weight. (If you check out specs on their site, be aware that you will have to convert from metric…so have fun with that!)

  • Length: 16 feet 8 inches
  • Width: 76 inches
  • Travel Height: 93 inches
  • Weight: 2,095 pounds


With a full wet bath to take care of your personal hygiene needs, this little wonder is ready to take you just about anywhere for an outdoor adventure you will never forget. It’s loaded with features and amenities such as:

  • Stylish Kitchen and Wall Units made with Solid Oak Tops
  • 30L Onboard Water Tank and Offboard Fittings
  • 13-inch Steel Wheels with Retro Hubcaps
  • Spare Wheel
  • Roberts Revival Mini DAB Radio
  • 2-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty

Starting at around $32,000 (which means it is built to your specs), it’s not on the cheaper end of the spectrum by any means. But after you watch this video by nuCamp highlighting some of its features, you might not care.

Video Tour of nuCamp Barefoot Caravan

But if this tiny trailer really “floats your boat”, be sure to do some research to find out when the first nuCamp builds will be coming off of the assembly line here in North America. Good luck!

Scamp 13 ft Tiny Camper

While the Scamp Tiny Camper is available in 13 ft, 16 ft and 19 ft varieties, we are going to focus here on the little brother of the group: the 13 ft Scamp. And yes, this is the smallest camper with bathroom that we are going to take a look at today.

With a long history on American roads, the manufacturer points out their quality and longevity:

Scamp is one of the most dependable trailers on the market. Scamp trailers originally built in the early 1970’s are still being used today. Our parts department can supply what you need to maintain your Scamp in perfect condition.

It might be hard to believe looking at the picture above, but yes, there is a bathroom option available in this 13 foot wonder. You give up one of the beds for this convenience, but I don’t think that will bother you too much since the toilet is at the top of your priority list.

Interior floor plan of 13 foot Scamp travel trailer
Image Credit: Scamp

Now, we’ve seen some pretty lightweight pop up trailers, teardrop trailers and travel trailers so far…but we haven’t seen anything like the Scamp!

Believe it or not, this unit has a hitch weight of around 100 pounds! How is that even possible? Ask the manufacturer I guess, but I have to believe that is the lowest hitch weight you will find in a travel trailer anywhere.

At that weight, your tow vehicle options are almost endless, allowing you to escape in just about anything that is equipped with a tow hitch. Notice I said “almost endless.” Please always do your due diligence and check with your vehicle manufacturer to ensure you are towing safely. Keep yourself and your rig safe. You do not want to endanger the life of your vehicle’s engine or transmission.


  • Length: 13 feet
  • Width: 80 inches
  • Travel Height: 90 inches
  • Weight: Under 1,500 pounds


Even at a weight of under 1,500 well-equipped, it packs some very nice features that you might not expect:

  • R15 Insulation
  • Interior Height of 75″
  • 12 gallon Fresh Water Tank
  • Deluxe Wood Interior Options
  • Fiberglass Construction
  • 30-Amp Power Converter
  • Clothes Closet

You can clearly see that this little dude packs a serious punch for its tiny size. Maybe it’s the perfect option for your “minimalist” getaways. Only you can know that for sure.

Casita Freedom Lightweight Travel Trailer

If the Scamp travel trailer is an iconic resident of the American roads, then the Casita lightweight travel trailer is the quintessential American escape vehicle. Founded in 1983, Casita Travel Trailers haven’t been around quite as long as Scamps, but they are no less recognizable and admired.

At just 16 feet long (17 feet option available also), the Casita Freedom is full of features you might not expect to find hiding in this little rig. One look at the floor plan will give you a better idea of what it has to offer.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you: Those are two swivel captain’s chairs included in this little nugget. A really nice touch, indeed.

I want to point out that this might not be the idea option for taller folks. The 16 foot model only offers an interior height of 5′ 10″, while the 17 foot model bumps that up to just over 6′ 1″.


  • Length: 17 feet
  • Width: 80 inches
  • Travel Height: 107 inches
  • Weight: Approximately 2,480 pounds

If less is more in your book, then you have indeed found your home on the road with the Casita Freedom! This classic lightweight travel trailer simply will not disappoint.

iCamp Elite Tiny Trailer

It’s tiny, it’s tough, and it is out to get your attention with its bright and no-nonsense approach to outdoor adventuring. The iCamp Elite deserves a hard look in your search for small campers with bathrooms.

This dynamite option in the tiny trailer world will no doubt surprise you as well, with its spacious interior, full bathroom, refrigerator and wardrobe.


While it may not have the “eurostyling” of some other options, and it may not boast a 100 pound hitch weight like the Scamp trailer, it has plenty to be proud of:


Here are a few fast facts regarding the dimensions and weight of this tiny trailer.

  • Length: 14 feet
  • Width: 80 inches
  • Travel Height: 97 inches
  • Interior Height: 5 feet 11 inches
  • Weight: 2,366 pounds
  • Hitch Weight: 236 pounds


  • 1.9 cu ft Refrigerator
  • Shower, Washbasin, Mirror, Cabinet, Toilet
  • Air Conditioning (Optional)

This is not one to be overlooked, that’s for sure. You will likely have to contact the manufacturer or an authorized dealer to get a solid idea on pricing for this model.

Airstream Nest Travel Trailer

Last, but certainly not least, is this beauty, the Nest Travel Trailer, by the iconic Airstream brand. I think this is one of the most elegant small campers on the market.

Dual-colored Nest Travel Trailer by Airstream

When we read through Airstream’s website, we found this summary about the Nest:

Even though Nest looks different, it shares the same fundamental qualities that make Airstream such an enduring brand: the true craftsmanship, attention to detail, and the undeniable spirit of adventure.

In my opinion, this trailer is a true beauty for the open road. There is no denying that. Airstream has absolutely delivered with design that both satisfies and excites. The floor plan will point out that you have a unique rear entry on this model, unlike any of the other members of this list.

Now, you need to brace yourself for the STARTING (aka base model) sticker price: $45,900. Yup, we saved the richest for last!

That price is nearly twice as much as I paid for my 26-foot travel trailer. You can bet that I am not their target market. But plenty of people are! And maybe you’re one of them.

There is just no denying Airstream’s spot at the top of the RVing world. They deliver both classic style and lasting value, which helps soften the blow of the sticker price.


Here are the key specs of this beautiful little trailer.

  • Length: 16 feet 7 inches
  • Width: 85 inches
  • Travel Height: 114 inches
  • Interior Height: 6 feet 6 inches
  • Weight: 3,400 pounds


Let’s wrap this up with a quick rundown of additional features and amenities of the Nest by Airstream:

  • 58″ x 80″ Queen Size Bed
  • Nev-R-Adjust Brakes®
  • Nev-R-Lube Bearings®
  • 2 Deep Cycle Group 24 Batteries with Multi-Stage Converter
  • 24 gallon Fresh Water Tank
  • 30 gallon Black/Gray Water Tank
  • Dedicated Waste Hose Storage

Our discussion of the Nest just wouldn’t be complete without a video that allows you to get a true feel for this dreamy capsule-on-the-go:

Video Tour of Airstream Nest

Judging from its parents in the Airstream family, it’s not too hard to imagine the Nest becoming a legend in the RV market in the coming years. Maybe you can be part of making it a legend by owning one of these little gems. (If you get one, I want a ride!)

You Could ‘Try Before You Buy’ with a Small Camper Rental

Pardon the interruption, but I think at this point you should be aware of our plan when it comes to finding the next RV that will be perfect for our needs. It might be exactly the idea you’re looking for.

You see, we have decided to try renting our way to our next RV purchase, which you can read all about by clicking here.

The worst thing any of us can imagine is making the wrong choice when it comes time to purchase an RV. That is especially true if you plan to live in it full-time! (Our most likely path.) So we are trying several different RVs on for size, from small camper vans to spacious travel trailers to adventurous driveables.


So far, we have used Outdoorsy as our rental platform of choice. And we have been very pleased. As a quick example, here are a couple of small campers in our area that rent for about $75-$100 per night.

A weekend in one of these will be money well-spent and will give you a much better idea of whether this is a realistic RV option for your particular situation. Not to mention it will be a blast to just get away!

So, maybe it’s time for you to check out the Outdoorsy marketplace to rent and test a few options before you buy. At least consider it as one reasonable option on your path to your next small camper purchase!

Which Small Camper with a Bathroom is Best for You?

And there you have it, friend. After quite a bit of personal research and RV tours, these are my top 11 choices when it comes to smaller campers and being able to “go on the go”.

I hope this will be a helpful resource for you. Enjoy the journey of searching for amazing options in the small travel trailer space.

Cheers to many happy outdoor adventures and comfortable nights once you find the camper that’s right for you!
