Your problem is 20 Lbs of luggage for each person and a chair for each person. Then you run up against food issues unless all you eat are S'mores and jiffy pop and drink campground water. Now where are you going to store all this stuff with a full van of people and an empty trailer pushing max weight? I feel for you but you need a motor home towing your trailer or 2 cars towing 2 trailers. Best to rent a family cabin at a campsite.

Maybe rent a houseboat for your family vacation.

Where we camp there are trailer services. You book your site and rent a trailer fit for the whole family. No towing, no pack up, no set up and no clean up and storage. Maybe an option where you want to camp.

You will have to be creative for sure, but I think it is doable. Roof top carrier on the van, does each person have a bike? Bike carrier on front of van for four bikes, carrier on back of trailer for four more. Carry as little as you can, do laundry when traveling. Four to six in the trailer, oldest kids outside in a tent or two.

Front dinette is 44 x 80, could fit three smaller kids. Two adults on the rear bed.

As much as possible, plan to spend time outside under the awning or possibly add a canopy.

Count on picnic table to provide some seating. Obviously, you will have to be very flexible and pack light!

In "the good old days" when I was growing up, we had a family of five camping in a 14 foot Shasta. No bathroom, rear gaucho for mom and dad, oldest sister up front on a converted dinette, and the two youngest on a sling bunk over the gaucho. Tight? You bet! Later kids ended up in tents, which lessened the load on the trailer. We didn't even have a frig, we had an ice box, so every day or two, off we went to buy a block of ice.

A common window A/C could be added to the Hauley. The mfr cuts a hole in the back next to the door and they have a nice enclosure available for the part that sticks outside.

Did you hear about the butcher
who backed into the meat grinder?
He got a little behind in his orders....
