I'd go for something with a large rear kids area where you could just take out the bunks or couch and put another bed in. I have such a beast although it's likely too small but is a good example. The extra 1/2 bath up in the main bedroom would be particularly helpful in their situation.

The back area just has a cushion bed/couch on the floor which could easily be taken out and a more traditional bed put in its place - the top bunk above the couch just swings up out of the way. I've often joked with my wife that when the kids are grown I'm going to take the bed out and put a recliner in their room and make it my man cave on wheels.

Nailed it!

And the first strife, who gets the bunk?
This is along the lines of what i was thinking, is this going be a joint buy, if so, then who get the nice King/Queen bed and who gets stuck in the tiny cramped bunks.
Also,if selling after this trip, do they both realize that you will probably not get back anywhere near your monetary investment.
Many of us don't even consider our investment, and get back more in our experiences and joys of traveling, camping/RV'ing than we will worry about in money.

Two good ways to destroy a friendship: work together or live together.

Get two campers.

They probably thought about the idea of their friendship and what that would mean, maybe they already live together...

I would look for something with 2 bathrooms as a start. That is probably the best area to look for separate quarters. I have seen some nice bunk houses with 2 bathrooms, or a toy hauler. I think the Toy Hauler has the best setup for separate quarters and probably the most functional for future trips if you don't have kids.

Friend asked me what kind of camper I’d recommend for two couples to travel together.

You may want to show your friend the responses to your post. Maybe they didn't think of everything when they started planning their trip?

Please, keep us updated on what they decide. My vote is for two small campers.
A couple weeks is one thing. A multi month trip is much different.

I used to have a Salem that had a second queen bedroom in the back with a half bath. It was fine with our daughter but I do not have any friends that I would want to be that closely confined with for that long

We have a large fifth-wheel toy hauler and we often invite other couples to join us. We call the garage the "guest room". It's pretty comfortable back there once we unload the car. We have two queens that pull down from the ceiling, or a queen on top and dinette on the bottom.

It's a lot different to have owners/guests than co-owners though. We have the nice front bedroom because we own it, and our friends are happy to be back in the guest room.

No company makes an RV big enough for 2 couples.

My DW and I can just barely handle being with each other for a month on the road. Adding in another couples disagreements along with ours and I think it would get old.
I vote for two seperate trailers. Another factor is what if one person in the party gets sick? that would really put a kibosh in the trip.
