What do James Dean, denim jackets, and a new 2022 RV all have in common?
They’re cool. Effortlessly cool.
Taking your family on the road can be quite an undertaking and may seem far from the shades on, wind-in-your-hair, “cool,” experience of your dreams. But the right family RV can help a family vacation go smoothly… only if you know what features to look for.
Though every family trip will have moments of complete frustration; for every “are we there yet” there will also be a laugh along the way. Making memories as a family is one of life’s greatest treasures, and we think that’s pretty cool.
Choosing the best RV for your family adventures can help make those memories everyone recounts for years. Whether you’re looking for an inviting entertainment space or enough bunk beds to accommodate your kids and their friends, we guarantee there’s a 2022 family RV that will make your family vacation the coolest trip yet.
2022 Heartland Mallard M251BH
- Length: 30’
- Weight: 6,110 lbs.
- Sleep Capacity: 8
Convincing the family to pile into an RV for a cross-country trip can sometimes be a challenge. However, it doesn’t have to be. With the Mallard M251BH, the whole family can enjoy their own space both in and out of the RV.
The double-over-double bunk beds with plush mattresses have their own black-out windows and LED reading lights, so your kids aren’t fighting over who has the best bunk. Plus, the suspension netting underneath the bottom bunks offers secure storage while the privacy curtains create separation of space.
A walk-in pantry with motion sensor light could potentially cause a few arguments among the younger passengers, but with the amount of storage offered inside you should be ok. As for a perfect hiding spot during a round of Hide-and-Seek, that’s a different story.
With a family on the road, storage is the name of the game. A wall of linen cubbies in the bathroom is the perfect solution for towels and washcloths while the mirrored medicine cabinet has an internal lip to keep items from sliding around inside during transit. The entertainment center in the main living space even offers a secret storage compartment under a slide-out shelf.
The master bedroom hosts a king-size bed with a memory foam mattress making it the ideal spot to rest from a long day on the road. Not ready to call it a night just yet? No worries. Cook up the day’s catch inside or out thanks to your exterior kitchen. Designed with prep space in mind, the outdoor kitchen has a sink, fridge, and a quick connect for your propane grill.

2022 Heartland Pioneer QB300
- Length: 35’
- Weight: 6,896 lbs.
- Sleep Capacity: 8
When it comes to kids, quality entertainment is a key factor for fun. The Pioneer QB300 is built to entertain. An entire bunkroom transforms into a mini living room during the day thanks to the twin bunks that fold up flush against the wall when not in use. A mini dining area complete with two benches and a table reduces to a twin sleeper at night. All areas within the bunkroom have perfect visibility of the TV.
Designed to be a great entry-level RV for adventurous families, the Pioneer delivers on that promise. A chef-designed kitchen ensures you get both quality and function by way of solid-wood cabinets and solid surface countertops that are sturdy and easy to clean. The recessed 3-burner cooktop by Suburban has a glass cover to expand prep space and the fridge/freezer combo features a chalkboard finish for endless games of tic-tac-toe or those toddler drawings you’ll never want to erase.
Speaking of endless games, the U-shaped dinette surrounded by panoramic windows is practically begging for marathon sessions of Uno or Monopoly. The winner can crash in the same spot by popping the dinette down to a sleeper. The awesome open floorplan boasts over 80” of ceiling height, adding to the spacious feeling!
A jackknife sofa provides additional seating and the double access entry points to the master bedroom make retreating from the night owl family members for an early bedtime easier than ever.
Keep the party going outside under the large awning with LED light strips and marine-grade exterior speakers. In that case, you just might have to forget about getting that shut-eye. Bedtimes don’t exist off the grid anyway.

2022 East to West Silver Lake 29KBH
- Length: 37’8”
- Weight: 8,328 lbs.
- Sleep Capacity: 8
From the dedicated private label manufactured exclusively for Camping World RV, the Silver Lake is an entry-level bunkhouse when it comes to price, but a mid-tier travel trailer when it comes to finishes. If you’re looking for an RV that’s a jumping-off point for your family travels, then you’ve found it – look no further.
The light, bright gray-tan interior makes the inside feel large and spacious while the pocket doors allow for quick, easy separation of sleeping quarters. Woven PVC marine-grade flooring is the best choice for longevity when it comes to children and pets, and it runs cohesively throughout.
A unique yet super stylish L-shaped kitchen features an under-mounted stainless steel farmhouse sink with a high-rise spray faucet. Instead of a backsplash, there’s one large window that runs the length of the kitchen above the counters and under the cabinets for maximum natural light. Cooking inside isn’t the only option though! Outside is a griddle and minifridge cook space that makes the most of indoor/outdoor living.

2022 Keystone Outback 340BH
- Length: 38’6”
- Weight: 8,752 lbs.
- Sleep Capacity: 9
There’s always that one family member who really enjoys the finer things in life – you know who you are. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with that! In fact, there’s an RV that is sure to appeal to them (and everyone else). The Outback 340BH is a premier luxury bunkhouse RV that defines what it means to be at home on the road.
The 78” barrel-style ceilings and opposing slides open up the entire space. An island in the kitchen holds the undermounted sink, while the skylight centered above flanked by decorative sconces ensures there is plenty of light in the RV regardless of the time of day. The kitchen is fully furnished with a flush-mounted microwave, 3-burner cooktop with grill style grate, oversized oven, and a 12V fridge/freezer combo that is vibration smart and frost resistant.
After cooking and eating one of your favorite campsite recipes, there are two plush reclining theater seats waiting for you to kick your feet up. Fire up the electric fireplace with its multiple light and flame settings and catch up on your favorite show or, even better, press a button and watch your television slide below to reveal a window behind it. Why watch the TV when you can watch nature from the comfort of your luxury RV?
Speaking of nature, store all your outdoor items in the many storage compartments on the outside of the Keystone Outback. Each compartment has its own magnetic, anti-slam door including the large pass-through storage at the front. You could even skip the indoor kitchen in exchange for the outdoor kitchen that comes with an extra-large dorm-style fridge, single basin sink, and 2-burner cooktop. It even has its own connections and enough counter space for a TV. See? It’s the finer things in life, and this RV is at the top of that list.

Which travel trailer is the coolest? Do you prefer a motorhome instead? Tell us in the comments below.
I would like to train in my North trail RV you think I can trade it in I love my RV but I need more space
Really depends on your definition of “cool” ….I guess….
I love my Class B Sprinter with many of the amenities of a large motorhome with a smaller lighter footprint I can drive and park anywhere. Plus, getting 18 to 20 MPG is pretty cool….
If I really wanted a large cool motorhome, I’d look at a Prevost, Tiffin or Foretravel…..
Here’s the thing…it all depends on what you want, but, pulling a trailer or 5th wheel is a lot of work….no thanks.
We have done the family bumper pull and upgraded to a much larger 5th wheel. Now it’s just my wife and I, so looking for a couples 5th wheel UNDER 32’ including over hang in the box off truck . Please send suggestions but still on the luxury side.
What about families with no kids and don’t need bunks
Hi, Abraham! Check out more details about Camping World’s trade-in process.
Hey Mark, great points it really is all about what you want. Everyone is going to have a different point of view here. For example, some folks will actually feel more comfortable towing a trailer rather than driving a motorhome.
