Family Caravans | Caravans with permanent bunk beds – 2024

Looking for a caravan with bunk beds for the whole family?

This  post is for the families out there, who’s number one requirement when shopping for a caravan is that they can only consider a caravan with bunk beds.

A caravan with bunks is really the only way a family can fit into a caravan. Especially if you’re a large family.

I would have thought that finding a caravan with bunk beds would be quite a simple requirement, and I also assumed that there wouldn’t be all that many options. 

Wrong!

There are over 140 caravan manufacturers in Australia (listed further below) that make caravans with bunks, and between them, there are over 700 different models!

Admittedly though, many of the layouts and features seem to be the same; I mean, there’s only so many different ways you can organise a bed, kitchen, bathroom, dining and bunks in a 15m2 space.


All the bunk models on a spreadsheet

If you just want to see all 700 different models, I’m selling a spreadsheet where I’ve painstakingly gone through every manufacturers website and listed every model of theirs that has bunks.

I’ve included the Make, Model, Length, Number of people it sleeps (in permanent beds), Base Price (where listed) and other notes like whether it’s off road, includes a bathroom, tanks, power and more.

In the spreadsheet I’ve only included caravans with permanent bunks – not dinettes that convert into bunks, or bunks that need to be folded down.

Don’t forget – you can see all the manufacturers that make bunk models further down in this post. The spreadsheet is just if you want to see all 700 models.


Caravan Bunk Bed Configurations

Double or Triple Bunks

Most of the bunk bed models come in either double or triple bunks. Here are some examples:

Australis have 9 models in their range of family caravans, from 16.6ft to 22.8ft, and you can opt for either double or triple bunks.

Obviously, whether you opt for double or triple bunks depends on the number of kids you have. Most caravan manufacturers seem to offer either, but sometimes that’s not possible (like in pop-tops, where there isn’t enough height for triple bunks).

But there are some layouts that have the double bunks plus one more single bed, like the Jayco Journey 17.58-1 below.

Quad bunks

For the larger families, there are caravans with 2 sets of bunks. Elite Caravans have a couple of layouts:

The Hume Series 4 – 4 Bunk with 2 sets of double bunks.

And the Hume 2200 FV 8-10 Sleeper which has 2 sets of either double or triple bunks.

Expanda Caravans

If it’s lots of beds that you’re after, and not strictly bunk beds, then the expanda type of caravans are also good for sleeping lots of people. You can have bunks but also a double bed at each end, like the Jayco Expanda 17.56.

Another option that you may want to consider (but which I haven’t included here since they’re not permanent beds) is toy hauler caravans. They often have bunks in the garage area that can be folded down when needed for sleeping and folded up when the area is being used for hauling the toys.

Cost for a caravan with bunks beds

You can buy a new caravan with bunks in Australia for around $60-70k.

But the price range is pretty wide with some from as little as $38,990 for a small caravan with no bathroom, right up to $240,00 for all the bells and whistles like the CRZRVAN Family Explorer.

Manufacturers

Below are all the Australian caravan manufacturers (that I could find!) that have bunk models in their current range.

You certainly don’t need to buy the spreadsheet (although, not gonna lie, I’d love it if you did!) you could just go to each of these websites and have a look through their full range.

Are you as surprised as I am at how many Australian manufacturers produce caravans with permanent bunk beds?

Are there any manufacturers of caravans with bunk beds that I’ve missed?
