My wife and I like the Vintage Kin trailers of the 1970's/1980's. We sold our '34 Silver Streak for several reasons, one of them being the lack of a rear bedroom. The next trailer will preferably have this layout as it allows two living areas (and two sleeping areas). TV/Audio will be installed at both locations.

I personally like the lounge at the front -- near the road -- as I consider it more of a public area. Being up by the road, with the drapes back, I am "part of" the traffic walking or driving by. It is a short step outside.

With a rear bedroom I can curtain off the lesser glass space per square foot and the interior doorway to the kitchen and lounge, and greatest privacy is created. With one person up in the morning and one still asleep, this arrangement works well.

Don't forget that both window shades and curtains lined with "blackout" material are your friends. One modifies windows for heat, light, breeze, cooling as the day progresses. It is what, IMO, keeps a trailer from ever feeling confining.
