The Best Small Campers with Bathrooms Under 2,000 lbs

In order of lightest to heaviest, here are the best small campers with bathrooms under 2,000 lbs** available right now:

**Note that this is DRY weight, not GVWR! Fully loaded, these campers may still exceed 2,000 lbs. Make sure you weight your camper and check your vehicle’s tow capacity carefully before you tow these trailers!

1. Scamp 13′ Deluxe

  • Price: $18,000 – $22,000
  • Dry Weight: 1,200 – 1,600 lbs
  • Length: 13′
  • Sleeps: 1-2

The 13′ Scamp Deluxe are the smallest and lightest camping trailers with a bathroom! If you want the lightest possible rig and don’t mind a used model, these older small camping trailers are perfect for you.

2. 14’ iCamp Elite (The Smallest RV with a Shower and Toilet)

iCamp Elite
  • Price: $10,000 – $15,000
  • Dry Weight: 1,337 lbs
  • Length: 14′
  • Sleeps: 1-2

The 14′ iCamp Elite is the second smallest camper with a bathroom. Unfortunately, these small camping trailers are no longer manufactured, so they may be difficult to find!

The dinette transfers into a bed. As a bonus, it even comes with an oven and fridge! All these features are rare for a micro camper like this.

Here’s the layout:

4. Happier Camper Traveler

Happier Camper Traveler Big Bear Exterior
  • Price: $68,950+
  • Dry Weight: 1,800 lbs

Previously on this list, we had the Happier Camper. However, the only option in that small camper was a dry bath. The new Happier Camper Traveler is a bit bigger and comes with an optional onboard wet bath!

Plus, the modular design means you can customize it however you want! However, it is MUCH more expensive than the other small camper options on this list.

10. KZ Spree Escape Mini Series

  • Price: $35,995
  • Dry Weight: 3,320 lbs
  • Length: 22′
  • Sleeps: 2-3

The KZ Spree Escape E17 Hatch (pictured above) is impressively large for a small camper.

The roof is fully walkable, which means you can hang out up there if you want! Otherwise, this makes it easy to repair, which is always a plus. The main bonus is the rear hatch that opens vertically. This allows you to store and use your toys with ease. This just skirts into our “small” list at 22′, and is heavier than most of the other trailers on this list.

12. Bigfoot RV B17FB

  • Price: $62,531
  • Dry Weight: 3,360 lbs
  • Length: 17.5′
  • Sleeps: 2-3

This small brand from our northern neighbors of BC, Canada builds some beautiful small trailers. We really like the look of their ‘Beast’ option kit. This beefs up the tires, changes the paint scheme, and adds a nice 6″ lift to help for camping off-road.

While it is packed with features, it comes at a steep price. The MSRP on these start at $62,531.

Airstream Bambi 16RB
  • Price: $66,500
  • Dry Weight: 2,890 lbs
  • Length: 16′ – 22′
  • Sleeps: 2-3

The Airstream Bambi is made by one of the best RV manufacturers of all time: Airstream! And it has one of their best layouts yet.

Coming close in size to the Airstream Basecamp, which is a smaller version with a dry bath, the Bambi still has a wet bath and lots of space to move around inside.

However, this designer brand and list of great features comes with a heft pricetag!

14. 21’8 Winnebago Rialta

1999 Winnebago Rialta
  • Price: $26,000
  • Dry Weight: n/a
  • Length: 21′ 8″
  • Sleeps: 2-4

Winnebago stopped making the Rialta in 2005, but if you’re on a budget and looking for small campers with bathrooms, it’s an excellent choice. Assuming you can find one, that is.

Here’s the floor plan, if you’re curious:

Winnebago Rialta Floor Plan

The nice thing about the Rialta is that, while it’s “small” in that 21 feet isn’t going to keep you out of most spaces, it’s still not a micro trailer like some of the others on this list. There’s some breathing room.

And, of course, a bathroom with a door is always nice.

15. Sportsmobile Sprinter Extended

Sportsmobile Four by Four
  • Price: $164,000
  • Dry Weight: 4,641 lbs
  • Length: 22′ 6″
  • Sleeps: 2-4

Do you dream of being a total badass and driving a mini camper van up mountains, through rivers, and across deserts?

Enter the Mecedes Benz 4×4 Sprinter.

This thing is awesome. It can go almost anywhere. Here’s a video:

Keep in mind that 1) this is a Mercedes, so it’s expensive and 2) the extended version is the only one with a built-in bathroom, and that’s custom-made, so it’s even more money.

But if you have the money and the desire, she’s a beauty.

Barefoot Caravan
  • Price: €32,500
  • Dry Weight: 1,750 – 2,000 lbs
  • Length: 16′ 6″
  • Sleeps: 1-2

Barefoot Caravans are a very respected brand within the small camper industry. But since they’re so hard to find and expensive to transport to the US, we just added them on as a bonus.

With a total length of 16’6″ and a width of 6’2″ this trailer is small and compact, but do not let its smaller size fool you! This trailer includes a bathroom and shower for all of your bathroom needs!

Here is a floor plan of the 16’6″ Barefoot Caravan for anyone looking to see its layout.
