Go Play 26RLS Living Room
The goal behind the design of the Go Play 26RLS was to maximize space while minimizing trailer length. Every inch of living space was utilized to its fullest extent, ensuring no wasted area.
The end result is a travel trailer with a rear living area that looks and feels incredibly spacious. Campers are made for, well… camping — but the Go Play 26RLS rear living area is so roomy and comfortable you may want to hang out inside and hang out with friends.
If you do decide to have guests, the tri-fold sofa folds out into a bed, and the dinette also transforms into an additional bed.

The only drawback is the 26RLS does not come with a TV, however, it does have a great space for one inside its prewired entertainment system. This entertainment system has a lot of storage area. The whole camper actually has a lot of storage.

Go Play 26RLS 200 Watts of Solar Power
Another new feature added because of YOUR feedback is: Go Play 26RLS travel trailers now come with 200 watts of solar power.
What can I power with 200 watts of solar power?
200 watts is not a huge amount of power, so you will not be able to run everything in your camper using 200 watts of solar power.
The solar package is intended to provide you with a power solution for when you need to power just a few components of your RV for a short period of time and you don’t have access to electrical hook-ups.
Some common things you can run with 200 watts of solar power:
- LED Lights
- Phone/Tablet Charger
- Coffee Maker

The Solar Package for the 26RLS is not set-up to run power to your electrical outlets. This requires an inverter. The 26RLS is inverter-prepped, so setting up an inverter to run your appliances or other electrical devices is a breeze.
