Sometimes you just need to get away, right? Away from the hustle and bustle, the daily grind, the constant notifications, and the nosy neighbors.
But there are probably some things you don’t want to leave behind — a comfy bed, a warm meal, and a toilet & shower.
If that sounds like you, then an off-road camper with a bathroom is the way to go! An all-terrain travel trailer or RV that’s big enough to have a toilet and shower is the ultimate off-grid expedition vehicle.
It lets you get away without sacrificing your creature comforts.
So let’s have a look at some of the best off-road camper trailers and RVs as well as some things you should keep in mind before buying!
We’ll look at the best options from a simple tow-behind off-road trailer to a $1,000,000+ luxury expedition vehicle that’s ready for the zombie apocalypse.
What Kind of Bathroom Do You Need In Your Off-Road Camper
The first thing you should decide is how much of a bathroom you really need in your off-road camper. ‘Cause if you’ve ever owned a small RV before, you know that their bathrooms are anything but spacious.
Don’t expect to find an off-road camper trailer with a jacuzzi tub to soak in. 😜
Most will have what’s called a wet bath. Basically, it’s a bathroom that’s designed to get wet…duh😆.
A wet bath is a combination shower and toilet (and sometimes a sink) all in one washroom area. It’s a nice choice for small off-road campers since it makes really good use of space.
In a few off-road campers, you might be fortunate enough to find a dry bath. A dry bath is what you have at home. There’s a separate shower area that’s meant to contain all the shower water so the toilet and sink area stays dry.
Something else you might see is a divided bathroom. These are kind of the best of both worlds. Usually, they’ll have a shower compartment and then a separate toilet and sink area.
And the most basic option you’ll get on a few of the smallest off-road campers with a bathroom is a simple cassette or portable toilet inside the camper and then an outdoor shower.
So first, figure out how “bathroomy” you want your camper’s bathroom to be, and then take your pick from this list.
9 Best Off-Road Camper Trailers With a Toilet and Shower
Let’s start with some normal, pull-behind off-road trailers with a bathroom.
The Opus 15 Bathroom: A wetbath shower/toilet/sink combo.
The Opus 15 is an almost perfect mix of rugged durability and comfortable luxury.
It shares a similar style to several of the other off-road trailers on this list. It’s got a low-profile body for easier towing and a pop-up top for additional headroom. Plus, there’s an extendable rear section that adds even more space to the interior.
The Opus 15 has a really intelligent design that maximizes the use of space and gives the interior a much larger feel than what you’re used to seeing in trailers this size.
A lot of that has to do with the fact that there is no kitchen inside the trailer. Opus decided to put the galley outdoors (with the help of some super cool slideouts) so that the interior space could be maximized for the living area and the bathroom with a shower, toilet, and sink.
With a king bed and two bunks, the Opus 15 is a great off-road trailer with a bathroom that’s ready for the whole family.
And with two fresh water tanks with a combined 63-gallon capacity, a 17-gallon grey water tank, and a 10-gallon black water tank, you’re ready for several days off-grid.
Watch the Opus 15 video tour.
The Black Series Classic12 Bathroom: Combination shower/toilet wetbath with a small sink right outside the bathroom door.
If you like the Opus 15 but can make do with something a little smaller, the Black Series Classic12 is a nice choice. It’s a good off-road camper with a bathroom for when you’re traveling just as a couple or with one extra person.
It’s got a pop-up top and slide-out back for extra room and like the Opus 15, it leaves the galley outside. Inside, it’s got a convertible bed and an extra bunk in addition to a full fiberglass wet bath with a toilet and shower.
Its freshwater tank is slightly smaller than the Opus 15 at just 50 gallons. And the grey and black water both drain into a 26-gallon tank so a couple should be just fine boondocking for a few days.
Watch the Black Series Classic12 video walkthrough.
The Black Series HQ21 Bathroom: Two separate compartments — one with a full sink and toilet and the other with a spacious shower.
If you’re a “go big or go home” kinda person who wants to roam the great outdoors and live like a rock star while you’re doing it, the Black Series HQ21 is the off-road trailer for you. The Classic12 is the little baby of the Black Series caravan line and the HQ21 is the bid daddy.
It’s got a 21-foot cabin that’s rough and rugged on the outside and plush and refined on the inside.
Instead of trying to fit a toilet, shower, and sink into one compartment, the HQ21 has separate compartments right next to each other. One has a toilet and an actual ceramic vanity. Then there’s a separate private compartment with a full fiberglass shower and sliding door that doesn’t take up any space in the walkway when you open it.
Watch the Black Series HQ21 video tour.
The Bruder EXP-6 Bathroom: A combination wetbath with a toilet, basin, and shower.
The Bruder EXP-6 might look mean on the outside, but inside it’s all soft, gushy, and comfy 😜. It’s got some really cool features that make it stand out from other off-road trailers with bathrooms on this list.
The unique suspension and chassis combination allows for 3X more wheel travel than most other dual-axle trailers. This helps the EXP-6 be easier to tow and perform really well on rough trails with a lot of articulation.
Another unique feature is the dual-sided kitchen which you can access from both the inside and the outside of the trailer.
And with its wet bath inside and sleeping space for up to six, the EXP-6 is a nice choice for families.

The BRS Offroad Pursuit Bathroom: A portable toilet and a unique shower slideout.
Fully enclosed hot shower. Plush queen mattress. 80L fridge/freezer. Ducted AC and heating. Four-burner cooktop, sink, and microwave inside in addition to a slide-out galley outside! Sounds more like what you’d find on a big 20ft+ camper, but no…the little BRS Pursuit packs all those features and more.
And it’s just a little over 13 feet long and about 3500 lbs!
A really unique feature on the Pursuit is the slide-out hot water shower. It’s got a hard floor that drains right into the grey water tank. And it’s fully enclosed on all sides.

What about the toilet? This one’s perfect for a portable toilet like the ones I reviewed in my article 13 Best Camping Porta Potty Toilets to Go On the Go! Just slip it in the outdoor storage bin and it’s ready to go when you need to go.
Watch the BRS Offroad Pursuit video walkthrough.

The Conqueror UEV-25 Bathroom: An actual dry bath with a sink vanity, toilet, and surprisingly roomy shower.
The UEV-25 shares a similar style to the smaller Opus 15 with a low-profile cabin and pop-up top. But instead of having a rear slideout, the Conqueror UEV-25 has a unique side bed slideout. That gives the UEV-25 enough interior room to have two double beds, one of which can also be converted into a dinette.
And for all of us who don’t like wet baths, the UEV-25 actually squeezes a surprisingly spacious dry bath inside. There’s a small stainless sink along with some usable counter space. Plus, there’s a spacious shower with a bench.
Watch a Conqueror UEV-25 video.
The Airstream Basecamp X Bathroom: Wet bath with toilet, shower, and a tiny sink.
While the Basecamp X obviously isn’t a hard-core off-road trailer and won’t go everywhere the Bruder EXP-6 will, it’s still a nice choice for exploring some rough backroads.
The X on the Basecamp model name means it gets a 3” lift kit, all-terrain tires, a front stone guard, and extra window protection.
But just like the regular Basecamp, its intelligent design is perfect for the active couple who want to explore. There’s a wetbath, a rear hatch for loading outdoor gear like bikes and skis, and a huge panorama window for soaking in the views at your favorite spot.
Watch the Airstream Basecamp 16X video tour.
The Taxa Mantis Bathroom: A small wet bath cassette toilet and shower similar to what you might find in pop-up campers.
The Taxa definitely broke the mold when it comes to off-road trailers. The Mantis features a really low-profile design with a large pop-up roof for standing headroom.
Everything on the trailer is well-thought-out, simple, and practical. That goes for the wetbath as well. It’s a simple cassette toilet/shower combo with a fabric curtain for privacy.
Just like a lot of other features on the Mantis, it’s not big, it’s not luxurious, but it just works.
Watch the official Taxa Mantis video walkaround tour.
The Winnebago HIKE Bathroom: A dry bath with a toilet, sink vanity, and shower. It’s probably one of the biggest on our list.
Just like the Airstream Basecamp X, the Winnebago HIKE isn’t a hard-core off-roader. It’s more of a soft-roader that’s ready for dirt roads with a few extra potholes.
It’s got offroad tires and fenders as well as a cool exoskeleton that makes it really easy to strap extra gear to the outside.
Plus, the smallest floor plan that comes in at just over 20 feet in length packs one of the largest bathrooms among the off-road camper trailers on this list.
So if you don’t think you’ll be tackling any technical 4×4 trails and wouldn’t mind the extra space when taking care of business, you might like the HIKE.

4 Other Off-Road Campers and RVs With Bathrooms
Here are some other off-road truck campers, RVs, and motorhomes with bathrooms.
Source: Winnebago Revel
The Winnebago Revel Bathroom: A combination shower/toilet wetbath that can also double as a gear closet.
Custom-made van conversions are more popular than ever. But the Winnebago Revel is one of the few off-road vans with a bathroom that’s ready to go right off the lot.
The Revel was definitely made for outdoor adventurers in mind. In addition to its 4×4 capabilities, the power lift bed raises to give you additional gear storage space for your outdoor toys. Plus, the dual 125-amp hour batteries mean you can stay off-grid longer.
Even the bathroom is multipurpose. Sure, it’s a place where you can take care of business. But with a clothing rod and removable shelves it doubles as extra gear storage.
Watch the official Winnebago 2021 Revel video tour.
The nuCamp Cirrus 820 Bathroom: A wetbath with a toilet, sink, and a fold-down sink for extra room when showering.
If you’ve already got a pickup truck, just throw a truck camper like the Cirrus on the back and now you’ve got an off-road camper. Granted, with the extra weight and height of the truck camper, you won’t be able to handle a lot of technical off-road mountain trails, but you can go farther off-road than you could with a normal pull-behind camper.
The Cirrus 820 has a dry weight of just under 3,000 pounds and is made to work with ¾ ton trucks or 1-ton short bed trucks.
The Cirrus makes good use of space in the wet bath. It’s got a large sink (so you don’t feel like you’re washing your face in a dollhouse sink 😆). Then, the sink folds down so you have extra space when showering or taking care of other business.

The Lance Campers 975 Bathroom: An actual dry bath on a truck camper! YES!
Head off-road in this truck camper with a bathroom and you won’t have to sacrifice your comforts.
It’s got a large slide-out on one side with a spacious dinette. And a HUGE plus is the dry bath. Yup, you read that right…an actual dry bath with a sink, toilet, and mini tub. In a truck camper!
It kinda makes ya think why every small off-road camper can’t have a nice dry bath like this one, right!?

Watch the Lancer 975 official walkthrough video.
The Earthroamer Bathroom: A well-designed wetbath on the LTI models or a variety of luxurious dry bath arrangements on the HD models.
If you’ve got a couple of hundred thousand dollars you’re not planning on using any time soon, why not get an Earthroamer? 😆😎 They’re pretty much some of the most luxurious and capable off-road campers with bathrooms you can find.
Go with the HD model and get probably the most luxurious bathroom options available on any off-road camper. Base models start at $1,900,000 so…you better start saving. 💰
You did it! You made it to the end of the list!
Off Road Campers With Bathrooms FAQs
Where can I dump the waste from my off-road camper?
A lot will depend on the type of waste tanks. If it’s like a normal RV, then you’ll need to pull up to a dump station, get out your sewer hose, and dump your waste. Other off-road campers might have a removable waste tank that you can dump in a normal toilet, a pit toilet, or an RV dump station.
*Don’t dump waste chemicals out in the wild. If you plan on doing that, go with a portable composting toilet.
What is the smallest off-road camper with a bathroom?
The BRS Offroad Pursuit is the smallest one with a shower, but it doesn’t have a dedicated toilet. You have to use a portable camping toilet. The Black Series Classic12 is the smallest off road trailer on this list with an interior wetbath with a toilet and shower.
What is the most rugged travel trailer?
You can’t go wrong with any of the Black Series or Opus off road campers since they’re all designed for extreme off-roading.

So which is the off-road camper trailer for you? The rugged and capable EXP-6 or the big and luxurious HQ21?
Whichever you choose, you’ll love having the extra comfort of an indoor shower and toilet. After a day hiking or driving on rough trails, you just can’t beat coming back to camp and getting a nice hot shower.
