Retiring Soon and looking for good travel trailer floor plan

Hi, We plan to retire in the near future. I would like to find a travel trailer with a floor plan that has plenty of counter space in the kitchen. I prefer rear living area with recliners directly across from the entertainment center. So far I have not had any luck looking on my own.

Thanks

Tinman1947, We looked for years before we bought our RVs. That's half the fun. You would be able to get what you are looking for in a fifth wheel better than a travel trailer. We have had both and have loved both.

I've found the TT's with plenty of kitchen counter space are either the front kitchen or rear kitchen models. Either of which wouldn't have rear living areas (kitchen in rear means bed in front & living in middle / kitchen in front means bed in back & living in middle). Several mfr's have a front kitchen with a couch directly across from the TV center, but just not dual recliners. Although you could remove the couch & put in dual recliners.

DriVer's right that you could get exactly what you're looking for in a fifth wheel. There are lots of fifth wheels with huge penninsula kitchens & the recliners across from the TV center. Are you locked in to only TT's?

P.S. Oooh, I just noticed this is your first post. Welcome to iRV2.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We have the arrangement that you are looking for in our Cameo. The standard was a couch across from the entertainment center and the recliners in the rear. We asked to have the two switched. So we have theater seating across from the entertainment center and a longer couch in the rear. It makes into a queen size airbed.

Travel Trailer up and down side.

We have been pulling a fifth wheel for about 7 years. In my experience, the downside to a fifth wheel is it's high profile. I have pulled a travel trailer before the fifth wheel and find that it is easier to pull, easier to maintain, and is more fuel efficient. The downside to the travel trailer is that since more people believe that the fifth wheel is more stable to pull, I believe the emphasis in the industry is to design more livability into the fifth wheel. There is huge incentives for the industry to go this way not the least of which is the higher the sale price of the trailer, the more dollars to be made on each unit. The biggest obstacle for myself is finding a travel trailer with generous counter space in the kitchen. Thanks for your input, it is appreciated.

Take a look at Komfort rv, they have a rear kitchen with a good deal of counter space. the dual recliners may not be exactly how you imagined it, but it always comes down to a compromise. - in my opinion.

Good luck.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Jayco's 322FKS Eagle seems to come closest with the counter across the front of the TT. Although it has a couch across from the TV, I'm sure you could replace that with 2 recliners & sell off the couch. Since you own a Jayco, I'm sure you're familiar with their quality & service.
