Travel Trailer Floorplans with Large Rear Window and Large Camp-side Windows?

We are looking for a new travel trailer with large rear window and large camp side windows.

We came across the Forest River Salem 27RE and Wildwood 27RE, which has large door-side windows and a large back window. See photos below.

The rear window is even larger due to no cabinets on the interior back wall, which would work fine for us.

Are there any other manufacturers/models that you would suggest with large rear window and large camp side windows?

Thank you.

Google RV manufactures and search each company for their travel trailer floor plans.

It may not be an issue for how you camp, but that model is seriously lacking for storage. Something to consider.

I have done that until my eyes hurt

The 27RE above is the best window combo we could find. Just thought I would ask the opinion of others in case we missed something. There are others with similar rear living floorplan, but windows generally aren't quite as large.

Thank you. That is a good point. As you mention, for our specific use we won't need as much storage and would prefer more window area for views where it will be permanently parked.

You should look for reviews of trailers with large windows. I have never seen anything negative about them (I have never looked) but structurally the windows make the box much weaker. The walls in a trailer act like shear panels and need continuous diagonal planes. Same as the walls in a home. For example, in my home I have 26 feet of sliding glass door on 33 feet of wall. To compensate for the lost shear capability, the builder put a steel column at the ends of the wall to bring the load down to the ground. On a trailer you can't do the same thing because it is not connected to the ground. An interesting way to see what happens is get two cardboard boxes that are the same. Tape all the edges and flaps. Then cut out large windows in one. Press on the corners and you will see a big difference in the flexibility. The extra flexibility stress everything attached to it as it moves and twists on the road. I am not saying they are not strong enough or do not meet their requirements. I am saying they are not as strong as something with fewer smaller windows. Something like an airstream with aluminum beams and riveted aluminum sheet would compensate very well.

Thank-you! That is a nice floorplan.
