Some RV enthusiasts are quite happy to enjoy the simpler things in life when it comes to RVing.
Having the basics such as a bed, a small kitchen, and a shower works perfectly fine.
Some prefer to have a home away home feel and want to travel in a three-bedroom RV. This is quite possibly the choice for larger families traveling together.
How Much Do 3 Bedroom RVs Cost?
A travel trailer with the luxury and space for 3 bedrooms can cost between $45,000 and $200,000 new depending on the style, brand, amenities, and size. Used models can be found between $20,000-$25,000 in varying states of wear and tear.
Note: all pricing is based on available numbers from manufacturers and used model estimates.
Let’s take a look at some of the available options!
There are other options if a Class A is not in your budget.
Some travel trailers offer a touch of luxury together with the option of 3 bedrooms.
Bunkhouse travel trailers offer floor plans that can comfortably cater to your needs and offer extra bedrooms.
In fact, some travel trailers can sleep up to nine people comfortably.

The Apex Ultra-Lite travel trailer is perfect for hooking up to your pick up truck and take anywhere on the road with ease.
Varying floor plans offer different bedroom types, but the 300BHS floor plan is the one you need if you want a smaller 3 bedroom option.
The 8′ wide trailer offers a queen bed, a 30 x 74 bunk, and a smaller bunk overhead as well. This trailer can comfortably sleep up to ten people.
There is a private bunk room that sleeps four and even allows privacy with a door that separates the bunk room from the rest of the trailer.
The trailer may seem small at just 34′ and 6,000 pounds, but it has more than enough room for the entire family and even features an outdoor kitchen and double slides for more room.
The Coachmen Apex Ultra-Lite Travel Trailer 300BHS costs approximately $35,000.

At just 37 ft long and 7,709 lbs, this RV will cost you, on average, $46,700.
3 Bedroom Luxury RVs:
Whilst the smaller travel bunkhouse trailers that are commonly found in the Class C motor homes category are more appealing to smaller budgets.
There are always the luxury 3 bedroom options if you have a much, much larger budget.
If you really want a home away from home, or even a smaller scale hotel experience, then you will want to look for Class A RVs or even fifth-wheel RVs that feature a loft bunkhouse.
Class A RVs look similar to large tour buses or freight liners.
Since they are motorized RVs, there is no need for a tow vehicle or any of the hassle associated with towing trailers.
There are some great 3 bedroom RVs that feature comfort like no other in the Class A range.
Fifth-wheel RVs are fairly similar to Class A RVs. The main difference is that fifth wheel RVs are not motorized.
They are, however, still luxurious and offer amazing three-bedroom options too.
4. Forest River Berkshire XLT Diesel 45A Class A Motor home
Three-bedroom-living in this Class A motor home is just one of the many great features this RV offers.
Separating the children from the master bedroom is not a problem with a set of bunk beds that feature its own 22″ LED TV for each bunk bed.
If more family and friends have come along for the ride, then the hide-a-bed sofa will allow for additional sleeping space for them too.
This RV allows sleeping space for up to 7 people.
Space is not a problem in the Forest River Berkshire 45A; there are two full bathrooms available and a total of four slide outs.
The master suite will be a favorable bedroom with a large king-size bed and a ceiling fan above the bed to keep you cool in the summer.
There are so many additional features; the family may not be leaving their RV anytime soon with theater seating and an electric fireplace.
With so much luxury and space on offer, this RV does carry quite the price tag and averages at $280,041.
5. Thor Motor Coach Hurricane 35M Class A Motor home
The Thor Hurricane 35M Class A RV is a force to be reckoned with.

Various factors can affect the cost of the RV, namely:
- Class of RV i.e., A, B, or C
- Manufacturer reputation
- The availability of the RV
- The age or year of the RV
- Additional features such as interior decor, exterior paint, and upgraded technology.
- The floor plan
Before settling on your next purchase, shop online, and visit RV expos so that you can identify all of the available options within your budget.
You may be pleasantly surprised to find more value for your money after spending some time investigating the different options.
Remember that purchasing a brand new RV is going to cost you a lot more than if you purchase the same make and model that was manufactured between 2014 and 2017.
You could save yourself thousands of dollars in opting to buy a used model with similar features.
