    What are the lightest smallest campers with a kitchen and shower?

    Is there anything with a kitchen and shower that would be towable by a mazda5?

    First, welcome to the Portal.

    A lot of small PUPs have a stove and sink but once you get into a shower you are usually moving into bigger (e.g., 12') and heavier boxes.

    It is my understanding (from checking a couple of car websites) that Mazda recommends that the Mazda 5 not be used for towing at all.

    thanks for the helpful reply. Yes im aware that Mazda recommends no towing but I've seen people towing small trailers with civics even :)

    OK, maybe I'm being too ambitious with a shower. Any recommendations for good small, light ones with a kitchen?

    What's your budget look like??? Chalets and Aliners could fit your bill for size for your vehicle.

    EDIT: But I'll also reiterate. If the manufacturer says you shouldn't tow with the vehicle, there's probably a pretty good reason for that.

    If the manufacturer says no towing, I wouldn't do it and I wouldn't want to be on the road with those who do.
