Want all the refinement of a luxurious vacation home with the ability to move it from one beautiful destination to another? Then, one of the best luxury destination trailers might be for you. These large RVs not only feature the comforts of home, they also come with an eye-popping array of amenities and floorplans.
While some think RVing means cross-country road trips or weekend adventures, the luxury destination travel trailer is designed for the discernible traveler who isn’t likely to use it for road tripping, trading easier navigability for space and comfort. Park your destination trailer for a few weeks or months at the beach, lake, or other dreamy spot, and enjoy a fully outfitted home away from home.
What Is a Destination Trailer?
A destination trailer is basically a larger and more luxurious travel trailer. It’s a popular choice for full-time RVers, as most destination trailers provide taller ceilings, residential amenities, and added sleeping capacity for guests.
Another common feature of destination trailers is larger, panoramic windows. Combined with many of these being built with sliding-glass entry doors, you’ll enjoy much more natural light in most destination trailers than in a traditional travel trailer or a luxury fifth wheel.
While the terms “luxury destination travel trailers” and “park model” are sometimes used interchangeably, one important feature helps distinguish between the two: holding tanks. Park models often don’t include these, while destination travel trailers do. There may also be a difference in weight, which greatly affects towability.

If you’re in the market for a luxury destination trailer, check out these options:
Forest River Salem/Wildwood 42View

Dealerships are selling out before the 42View arrives on the lot. From the moment you look at the massive wall of windows and 26-foot awning on this RV, you’ll understand why. It’s impressive before you even step inside, where the extravagance continues with two lofts, a chef’s kitchen, and luxurious amenities.
Upon entry, your eyes will dance from the large picture windows to the spiral staircase to the seamless waterfall countertop. Further exploration reveals the telescoping 50-inch HD television, spa-like shower, king bed flanked by windows, two fireplaces, concession window, and so much more.

Other Luxury Destination Trailers To Look At
While they narrowly missed the cut for our top picks, here are two more luxury destination trailers worth a second look.
Forest River Timberwolf 16ML
What do you get if you mix a tiny house, a park model, and a travel trailer? The Forest River Timberwolf 16ML just might be it. While this two-story boxy home on wheels looks a lot like a tiny home, it is more lightweight and towable – and it has holding tanks.
Despite its similarities to a tiny house, the Timberwolf 16ML has one important difference: It may qualify for a recreational loan since it is technically an RV. For some buyers, this is an important distinction.
Walking up to the Timberwolf 16ML, the most striking feature is likely the second-story deck. Inside, two large lofts practically make this a two-story travel trailer. The main floor offers a living room with a 58-inch couch, chair, and high-top table.
The kitchen is generously outfitted with a double-door fridge and some surprising finds, including a dishwasher and a washer and dryer. Head upstairs to find a queen bed in the loft. The Timberwolf 16ML has recently debuted and few details have been officially released by Forest River, but expect this model to attract a lot of attention in 2024 and beyond.
Destination Trailer Specs: Timberwolf 16ML
- Length: 29’11”
- Dry Weight: 7,124 pounds
- Cargo Carrying Capacity: 4,093 pounds
- Sleeping Capacity: Up to 6
Forest River No Boundaries RV Suite RVS1
Thanks to the Azdel aluminum construction, the RV Suite RVS1 comes in at under 7,000 pounds, making it substantially lighter than most of the other destination travel trailers in its class. Despite its lightweight design, the interior is the essence of luxury.
You will instantly get into vacation mode as soon as you step onto the sun deck extending off the rear of the trailer. Head inside the double glass doors to find a flex space that transforms from a place for dining or remote working to a comfortable bedroom. Simply fold down the tabletop, pop open the bed legs, and flip down the Murphy bed to reveal a king mattress.
The kitchen offers a chaise lounge located across from a galley-style setup, with all electric appliances. Double sliding doors fill the space with light, making it feel roomy, despite the lack of slides. Keep your eye on the internet or on Camping World lots to watch for the industry-shaking RV Suite RVS1 to emerge.

- Length: 32’6″
- Dry Weight: 7,100 pounds

Is a Destination Trailer Right For You?
Destination trailers are built for extended stays but aren’t entirely immobile.
- They’re ideal for spending a full season (or longer) in a single destination.
- A destination trailer might be ideal if you want to relocate south to one place for the winter and return north for the summer (with minimal stops in between).
- If you want to live in an RV full-time in one location, a destination trailer could be your perfect choice.
If you only want an RV for weekend getaways or 3-4 short trips per year, you’re likely better off with a small camper, travel trailer, or even a fifth wheel.
Luxury destination travel trailers certainly have a place in the market. However, if you are looking for something a little more towable, you might find these articles of interest:
