Let’s talk iconic duos. Sonny and Cher, Batman and Robin, Oprah and Gayle, Salt-N-Pepa – the list is endless. Whether you’re hitting the road with your significant other or your best friend, you need a great couples camper—and a half ton towable RV offers the right size and comfort for just that. 

Nothing says style like half-ton towable RVs for couples. Traveling off the beaten path has never been more enticing or more accessible than now. Here are a few of our favorite RVs in each class designed specifically for two.

Half-Ton Travel Trailers

Check out these half-ton travel trailers that prioritize comfortable camping for two. Don’t worry—there’s room for guests, too. Lightweight and efficient, any of these should pair easily with your half-ton truck; just be sure to double-check the Towing Capacity Calculator

East to West Alta 1900MMK

  • Length: 25’
  • Dry Weight: 5,463 pounds 
  • Sleep Capacity: 2

The trick to the East to West Alta 1900MMK is the space-saving queen Murphy bed that retracts to create a comfy, cozy living space. Where the bed was, now you have a sofa—easy as that. We like that you get pass-through storage on this smaller unit. Also, East to West Alta interiors always offer the perfect touch of elegance. On this model, it’s in the black and stainless high-rise pull-down kitchen faucet and the marble-style solid surface membrane countertops. 

Rockwood Mini-Lite 2506S

  • Length: 25’11”
  • Dry Weight: 5,551 pounds 
  • Sleep Capacity: 4

Attention camp chefs: The front kitchen floorplan of the Rockwood Mini-Lite 2506S provides plenty of space and a great view through the front tinted window. Enjoy solid surface countertops, a 21” oven, a three-burner stovetop, and a spacious pantry closet. On a travel trailer of less than 6,000 pounds and less than 26’, those are coveted kitchen features. We also love the simple, elegant Sedona Wood cabinetry and the private east-to-west bedroom setup. And, returning to the camp chefs: there’s an outdoor kitchen, too.

Forest River Campsite Reserve 25MW

  • Length: 29’8”
  • Dry Weight: 5,970 pounds
  • Sleep Capacity: 4

Introduced in 2024, the Campsite Reserve lineup of travel trailers is new to Forest River and sold exclusively through Camping World. These are feature-forward campers with lots of storage, built on the new X-9 Chassis. The Campsite Reserve 25MW offers a unique kitchen with tons of functionality. We think you’ll love the king size bed with a private entrance as well as the outside kitchen. This RV, and all other travel trailers on this list, fall under 30’, which means you have access to most national park campsites. Thankfully, the longer slide-out with panoramic windows makes these shorter campers still feel expansive inside. 

Keystone Cougar 26RBS

  • Length: 29’11”
  • Dry Weight:  6,796 pounds 
  • Sleep Capacity: 6

The super-slide on the Keystone Cougar 26RBS opens this couple’s camper to a wider, more open central living and kitchen area. The bedroom is tucked away—perfectly cozy— and the bathroom and rear closet occupy the rear, leaving the entire middle section of this travel trailer for a spacious and comfortable living area. Enjoy a centralized fireplace beneath a complete and impressive entertainment center. In the kitchen, you have a cattycorner double-basin sink, a 12-volt fridge for boondocking, and a dedicated space for your oven, stovetop, and microwave. 

We also love that this travel trailer under 30 feet also offers two exterior doors, perfect for those times you are entertaining guests and want to be able to enter and exit either side without disturbing the other. 

Half-Ton Fifth Wheels 

If you thought fifth wheels were only for big quarter and full-ton trucks, think again! Here are a couple of fifth wheel campers that should tow wonderfully with your half-ton truck. Just double-check the towing and hauling capacity. Fifth wheels for families make sense, but these are better suited for couples:

Keystone Cougar Sport 2100RK

  • Length: 26’3”
  • Dry Weight: 6,815 pounds
  • Sleep Capacity: 6

The Keystone Cougar Sport 2100RK has the features of larger fifth wheels but in a more lightweight package. The result? A half-ton towable fifth wheel, making it ideal for those smaller, more remote campgrounds. The 2100RK is a rear-kitchen model, which helps keep your bedroom more secluded and more purposeful. While the bedroom is accessible to the living area, it too feels more dedicated to the bedroom area.

Inside, the dinette comfortably sits two but can easily handle four if you decide to invite a few friends over for a double date. Share a few laughs, a few memories, and a few drinks while the kids are with the grandparents or sitter, and you’re on a long weekend in your rolling getaway cabin. And when it’s time to include the kids or friends on the adventure, the dinette folds into a sleeping spot. 

Jayco Eagle HT 26REC

  • Length: 29’5”
  • Dry Weight: 8,055 pounds
  • Sleep Capacity: 6

The Jayco Eagle HT 26REC offers a unique rear living space opened by a spacious slide-out that includes four windows for incredible views. Combined with the kitchen, this cozy den allows you to hole up for quiet movie nights with easy access to snacks. Then, enjoy the privacy of the elevated bedroom space, complete with a queen-sized bed and dual wardrobe closets. 

Jayco does a great job of incorporating features into their units, even the more entry-level fifth wheels like the Eagle HT 26REC. Enjoy the HELIX Cooling System with “Whisper Quiet A/C cooling, a 4K Ultra LED HD Smart TV in the living room, and GE appliances. Plus, you get the 4-star handling package with Dexter axles with NEV-R-Adjust brakes and E-Z Lube hubs. 

Half-Ton Toy Haulers

Like fifth wheels, toy haulers often get stereotyped as big and bulky, difficult to tow, and designed for a lot of people. But the toy haulers on our list are half-ton friendly and would serve any adventurous couple well. 

Forest River Nightfall 21N

  • Length: 27’3”
  • Dry Weight: 7,098 pounds
  • Sleep Capacity: 6

New in 2024, the Forest River Nightfall toy hauler line offers lighter-weight, more compact garage-equipped campers. Less than 30 feet long, the Nightfall Ultra 21N includes a 14’ open-concept garage space that includes the kitchen as well. But with the toys unloaded and ready for the next day, that garage space acts much more like a home living and dining room with dual wall-mounted sofa sleepers and a convenient removable dinette table. Add the patio, and you’ve got the makings for a perfect candlelit dinner spot. 

Given its size, the Nightfall lacks nothing feature-wise. Equipped with a 30-gallon fuel cell, outdoor TV prep, large awning, solar panel and converter, and more, you’re set for outdoor entertainment, serious motorsports, and potential boondocking. 

Forest River Wildwood FSX 30VCVIEW

  • Length: 36’6”
  • Dry Weight: 8,623 pounds
  • Sleep Capacity: 4

It’s going to be difficult to offer a better movie-night setup than the Wildwood FSX 30VCVIEW. The movie theater projector and premium sound supported by an electric drop-down screen in the living room? Good luck. While technically a toy hauler (and certainly capable), the real reason for the garage door might actually be the patio where you and your partner can enjoy the evening. Plenty of kitchen space, a unique storage or guest mid-bunkroom, king-size bed, pass-through storage—you’re set. 

The 30VCVIEW is our most substantial half-ton couples camper. After all, all those features come at a price. Make sure you double-check your truck’s capabilities to ensure it has enough huff and puff to get the job done. 

What Weight is Considered Half-Ton Towable?

A “half-ton RV” simply refers to an RV that can be towed by a half-ton truck. However, the capabilities of half-ton trucks vary. The only true way to know if your half-ton truck can tow a certain travel trailer, fifth wheel, or toy hauler is to compare the specifications of the truck and the RV, like tow capacity, hitch weight, payload capacity, unloaded vehicle weight (UVW), and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). If you haven’t purchased a tow vehicle yet, be sure to check out our guide to choosing the best vehicle for towing a camper.  

Is There a Half-Ton Towable Fifth Wheel?

There are many fifth wheel RVs towable by half-ton trucks. We’ve highlighted the Keystone Cougar Sport and the Jayco Eagle HT brands which offer several fifth wheels towable by some half-ton trucks. But you can’t rely on the general term “half-ton” when determining a truck’s capability. You must compare the truck’s payload and towing capacity against the specific fifth wheel’s weight ratings to determine if it may be towed safely.


We hope you enjoyed this list and find these RVs as exciting as we do. For more resources on finding the right camper, check out our resources below.
