Benefits of Rear Living Room Floor Plans

Rear living room floor plans are ubiquitous in RVs, with travel trailers and 5th wheels having the most rear living room floor plans available. Rear living rooms provide extra living space and more room for the kitchen, usually installed next to the living room. The extra space provided by a rear living room is what makes them so popular among RV-ers, and tends to make your travel trailer feel less cramped. And with the kitchen next to the living room, you will be able to spend more time with your friends and family while cooking a delicious meal.  

Rear living rooms will come with a few windows which will provide a good amount of natural light and extraordinary views. They tend to have more custom options for furniture and other amenities too. Moreover, due to the position of a rear living room, larger slide-outs can be installed because the travel trailer’s wheel axles support them. These slide-outs will amplify the already increased living space provided by a rear living room floor plan. 

Here are some of the common benefits a rear living room can provide:

  • More kitchen space
  • An incredible amount of space in the living room
  • Ample natural light during the day
  • You can experience some stunning views with the comfort of theater seats or a comfy couch
  • Larger slide-outs
  • More custom options
