The Best Class A Motorhomes with Bunk Beds

A Class A motorhome is the largest motorized RV in length and height, often boasting high seating and sleeping capacities. These top five picks, along with one honorable mention, are the motorhomes I see the most in my full-time RV travels, so it’s no surprise that they are top sellers.  

1. Thor Freedom Traveler A32

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 33’4”
  • GVWR: 20,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 8,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 7

Why I chose it: Fan favorite

Families have loved the amenities, sleeping capacity, and price of the Thor Freedom Traveler A32 for years, and I can see why.

This floorplan allows enough bed and bunk capacity while still providing a big family with enough space between the kitchen, dining, and living areas. The living area continues into the cab, thanks to a removable coffee table between the swivel cockpit chairs. 

Whether you’re looking to purchase your first motorhome or you’ve been adventuring for a while and looking to upgrade or downsize, you can’t go wrong with choosing a fan favorite. 

2. Thor Ace 32B

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 33’5”
  • GVWR: 20,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 8,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 7

Why I chose it: Comfort for the kids

The Thor Ace meets the needs of families by leveling up the sleeping arrangements in the bunk beds and adding 6” mattresses as a standard feature in their newest models. USB ports and a place to attach an iPad in the bunks to play games or watch a video make this model a kid’s dream. 

But RVing is also about spending time together as a family, which is easy to do with a dinette that’s perfect for board games and a jackknife sofa for snuggling together for a movie night.

3. Thor Hurricane 34J

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 35’9”
  • GVWR: 22,000 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 8,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 7

Why I chose it: Entertainment options

When comparing the two other popular Thor models on this list, the Hurricane 34J just has more. More length, storage, and entertainment options, with an outside kitchen not seen in many Class A models. 

Because of its longer overall length, the bunk beds are slightly longer, which ensures a more comfortable sleep for taller little kids and bigger teens. Bonus points go to this model for having a large shower to accommodate those teens as well.

4. Jayco Precept 36A

Want to get more out of your RV? Subscribe to the Camping World YouTube channel, and never miss a video.

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 38’10”
  • GVWR: 24,000 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 5,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 9

Why I chose it: Two full bathrooms

At almost 39’, the Jayco Precept 36A is the longest on our list of motorhomes with bunk beds. The interior layout is seriously impressive, but the exterior is impressive too, featuring a sleek, modern-looking front and swinging storage doors with slam latches.

With two full baths, there should be no fighting over space for the nine people it can easily accommodate overnight. Mom and Dad will experience a little pampering because one bathroom is located in the rear as an ensuite, and the two opposing slides make for a large living space in the master bedroom, complete with a standard king bed.

5. Jayco Alante 29F

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’2”
  • GVWR: 18,000 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 5,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 8

Why I chose it: Small plan, big punch

With the shortest overall length on our list, the Jayco Alante 29F has a lot to offer with upgraded standard features compared to others with this similar floorplan. 

The auto leveling system comes standard, as does the 7.3L V8 engine. The JRide suspension offers a smooth and quiet ride. There is an impressive 23-foot awning covering the whole living side of this rig, and it boasts the largest windshield in its class at 120 inches. 

With room to sleep eight but a length of just over 32 feet, your family will have no problem getting comfortable in this motorhome with bunk beds. 

Honorable Mention: Forest River Georgetown 7 Series 36K

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 40’1” 
  • GVWR: 24,000 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 5,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 5

Why I chose it: Abundant living space

As a full-time traveler, I see a lot of families around the country adventuring in the Georgetown 7 Series, which is why it is added as an honorable mention for the best motorhome with bunk beds in 2024. As a 40’ Class A motorhome, it has all the space you’d need, with plenty of bells and whistles. 

An outdoor entertainment center complete with TV and speakers is perfect for watching movies or sports while lounging in your favorite camping chairs. On colder spring or fall mornings, you can take the chill off inside as the Georgetown 36K comes standard with an electric fireplace. 

The Best Class C Motorhomes with Bunk Beds

Class C motorhomes are a favorite because families get lots of living space combined with the ease of feeling like they are driving a large truck. What makes these units different from a Class A motorhome is that the bed over the cab is standard, which you can easily recognize from the exterior. 

These top five picks and one honorable mention will show you that small spaces can equal big adventures. 

1. Thor Coleman 31CM

Want to get more out of your RV? Subscribe to the Camping World YouTube channel, and never miss a video.

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’8”
  • GVWR: 14,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 8,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 7

Why I chose it: The walk-through bathroom

This Thor Coleman motorhome is a popular choice for families looking for a Class C motorhome with bunk beds, as Coleman is a name synonymous with camping (we all remember the traditional Coleman Lantern). Families looking to get away for a weekend or longer can’t go wrong with this basic, yet completely functional, motorhome with bunk beds. 

Everything in this model is thoughtfully designed, including a walk-through bathroom, which makes the floorplan feel more open and, more importantly, allows for bathroom access with the slide-out retracted on travel days. Kids will be impressed that they can charge their devices on the road thanks to a USB port built into the dinette.  

2. Thor Freedom Elite 31FE

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’4”
  • GVWR: 14,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 8,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 8

Why I chose it: Big bunk

One of the eye-catching features of this Thor Freedom Elite Class C motorhome’s interior are cabinets, countertops, couch, and dinette seating finished in light and bright colors. This is an important feature of any RV model because a brighter interior makes the space look bigger. 

Speaking of bigger, there is lots of overhead storage space above the jackknife sofa and in the nightstands to store camping and living essentials. I don’t even have nightstands in my 5th wheel! Thor has even thought about the comforts of travel with cupholders behind the sofa.

Finally, a cab-over bunk with an 800-pound weight capacity will be more than enough for kids, teens, or adults who are traveling with you on your adventures. 

3. Jayco Greyhawk 31F

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’6”
  • GVWR: 14,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 7,500 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 7

Why I chose it: Luxury 

The standard features and upgrades available with the Jayco Greyhawk 31F allow for a lot of luxury in a little package at a mid-level price. Like the Jayco Class A motorhome models, this comes equipped with the big V8 engine and the Jayco exclusive JRide package for a smooth driving and handling experience. 

There are windows everywhere in this RV, including in the cab-over bunk. With four exterior color combinations and two interior color options, you can customize the new Jayco Greyhawk 31F to your liking, which sets this apart from other models with a similar floorplan. 

4. Forest River Forester LE 3251DSLE

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’3”
  • GVWR: 14,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 7,500 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 10

Why I chose it: Dedicated kid space

The floorplan of the Forest River Forester LE 3251DSLE is different from the other models listed here for three big reasons. First, the sofa is located on the driver’s side, giving it a fresh, updated feel. Next, the sink’s placement in the kitchen mimics a U-shaped kitchen, with the essential equipment being at arm’s length. 

But the biggest difference with this floorplan is a dedicated kid zone which can be closed off from the master bedroom with a sliding pocket door, and the main living space with a retractable sliding partition. The bunk room is configured a bit differently, with a kid’s sleeper sofa on the bottom and a flip-down bunk on the top. Directly across from the sofa is storage and a TV. 

5. Thor Chateau 31EV

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’8”
  • GVWR: 14,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 8,000 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 7

Why I chose it: Coat Closet

Finding a place to hang your coat, keys, and dog leash when entering your RV can be challenging. Because of the placement of the entry door on the Thor Chateau 31V, families get a closed coat closet with shoe storage. 

This unit sleeps seven, so there might not be room for everyone’s coat and shoes, but RV families are resourceful with storage options, and even this little space is very useful. 

Not only can this Class C motorhome sleep seven, but you can travel with seven as there are seven seatbelts on board. When traveling in any kind of motorhome, ensuring that you have enough seatbelts for everyone is a very important piece of information to research before you buy. 

The bunk beds are a standard size for their length, and if you are traveling with older teens who will be sleeping in the overhead cab bunk, they will appreciate the side window and privacy curtain. 

Honorable Mention: Entegra Coach Odyssey 31F

Motorhome Specs

  • Length: 32’7”
  • GVWR: 14,500 pounds
  • Hitch Weight Rating: 7,500 pounds
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 10

Why I chose it: That front cap window

The Entegra brand evokes a feeling of luxury, and you are getting that with this coach. The interior is top-notch, the front cap is a full fiberglass front with a covered seam, and it’s a quiet ride due to the installation of rubber isolation mounts. Entegra adds standard springs to help with stability and squatting issues if you use the tow hitch. 

As you are researching Class C motorhomes, you will realize that space is limited because of the overall length of these campers, but in the Odyssey 31F, there is a flip-up counter to give extra space for meal prep. I love the amount of storage in this unit as well.

With these models, the overhead cab is typically solid, but here we have a full, bright overhead window that gives a heightened view of the landscape as you travel and of the stars at night.
