WayFinder RV Go Play 26BH $19,995 — A Full Review
Finding the perfect camper is a challenge. What’s even more difficult is finding the perfect camper when you’re on a tight budget.
We feel your frustration — and may have a solution!
If you’ve been shopping for a high-quality, no-slide family bunkhouse, the low-priced Go Play 26BH may be exactly what you’re looking for.
What is a Wayfinder RV Go Play 26BH?
The Wayfinder Go Play 26BH is meant to include all the features the majority of RV shoppers are looking for when buying a new travel trailer. However, the 26BH does not offer any optional upgrades from the factory — what you see is what you get — so it may not be the right camper for everyone.
It is prepped for solar and TV and a few other popular upgrades in case you choose to add them on after purchase, but the 26BH does not offer any factory options.
You won’t find any ground-breaking, first-of-its-kind technology inside, but you will find lots of simple, straight-forward features, like a front private bedroom, extended ceiling height, and no-carpet ventless floors.
Bottom line: Go Play campers are built with all the features you could want — without any of the useless fluff you will never use.
This article will take you on detailed deep-dive into the Go Play 26BH — so you can better decide if it’s the right no-slide bunk house for your family.

The Go Play 26BH Cost: $19,995
If you know the Wayfinder RV origin story, you know the reason Bish’s RV decided to make campers is we want to be able to offer quality travel trailers at prices the average hard-working family can afford.
We noticed RV manufacturers could save a TON of money by eliminating advertising middlemen, simplifying options and streamlining the production process.
The Go Play Cost Story tells you all the money-saving teniques we were able to use without sacrificing construction quality or design.
Long story short- Go Play RVs save you 1,000s of dollars!
The Go Play line is currently very similar to Jayco-owned Highland Ridge conventional travel trailers. Why? Because Jayco helps us make them.
Despite the almost identical similarities in design and construction, the one big difference — the price tags. The Go Play 26BH is priced much lower.

Go Play 26BH Living Room
The Go Play 26BH was designed with the intent of providing the most amount of space for the least amount of trailer length. Not an inch of living space was wasted.
Although this is a no-slide trailer, and living space can fill up easily when the whole family is inside, the 26BH’s design makes it so everyone can hang out pretty comfortably together without sitting on top of each other.
Go Play 26BH Living Room Features
- Great Amibient Lighting: With 10+ LED Lights throughout living area
- Large Dinette for family meals and extra seating. Collapsible table; Dinette folds out into a bed. Spacious storage area beneath each seat.

Go Play 26BH Flooring and Ceiling
Go Play 26BH Flooring
The 26BHS features Congoleum linoleum, which is a luxury vinyl flooring, throughout the whole trailer, including the slide-out. It does NOT have any carpet. This makes cleaning the floors an easy chore.
The slide-out has a flush-floor, so no stubbing your toe when walking around without shoes from uneven flooring.
Go Play 26BH Ceiling
The Ceiling height is 6’9”!
This is 3” taller than the industry standard ceiling height in travel trailers, and as a result, it adds an incredible amount of space for cabinet storage.
The ceiling height was one of the reasons the RV Nerd put the Go Play 26BH on his Nerd Preferred list.
If you’re tall you will definitely appreciate the added height in this trailer.
Go Play 26BH Bathroom
When RV makers are designing “budget” RVs, the bathrooms are one of the things that usually end up being cheaper in quality.
Wayfinder RV made sure the Go Play 26BH bathroom got the same detailed attention as the rest of the trailer.
The 26BH’s bathroom is a “split” bathroom, meaning the bathroom sink and medicine cabinet are outside the bathroom door, while the toilet and shower are inside.
Some people don’t like this split layout, but many others prefer this bathroom setup because it allows multiple family members to access parts of the bathroom at the same time.
Go Play 26BH Bathroom Features
- Foot-Flush Toilet with plenty of surrounding hip and shoulder room
- Tub/Shower Combo with reinforced flooring
- Residential step-up into shower
- Tall Bathroom Ceiling, even in Shower
- Bathroom Sink with Storage Cabinet Below
- Large-Mirrored Medicine Cabinet
- Counter Space with spacious storage area below

Go Play 26BH Double-Over-Double Bunks
A Bunk House Trailer wouldn’t be a bunk house without the bunks!
Go Play 26BH Double-over-Double Bunk Features
- Two Double Bed Bunks (300 lb. rating) Lots of storage beneath the bottom bunk.
- Electrical Outlets for each bunk
- 12-Volt USB Port for each bunk for tablets and ipads
- Breeze-way window for additional ventilation
- Designated A/C for Bunk-Space
Go Play 26BH Private Bedroom
The front bedroom is one of the best family camper features of the 26BH. This master bedroom has a wall that separates it from the rest of the camper, so Mom and Dad can have some much-needed privacy.
26BH Private Bedroom Features
- “Camp Size” Queen Bed: It’s a little shorter than a traditional queen, but allows easy access throughout the entire bedroom. It has a large storage area beneath the bed.
- Dual Bed-Side Stands: Lots of table space
- Over-Bed Storage Shelf
- Dual Wardrobe Cabinets with Hanger Rod
- Wireless Phone Charging Pad
- Conveniently placed USB Ports

Go Play 26BH Exterior Storage
You can never have too much storage space! The 26BH has 2 large outer storage areas.
- Baggage doors on each side of the front storage compartment. A true “pass-through” storage area, which means the front storage area has tons of space and spans the entire width of the trailer.
- The rear storage compartment baggage door is on the entry side and offers more storage space for your family camping trips.
Go Play 26BH Electric/Climate Control
One thing to know about the Go Play series— it has the Magnum Roof System, which means there is a hollow space between the ceiling and the roof. This allows for some easy wiring and electrical add-ons in the future.
As an added safety feature, the Magnum Roof System has a wide width so the the nail plates do not come in contact with wiring and wear through overtime causing short circuits….or fire.

Towing the Go Play 26BH
The Go Play 26BH has an empty weight of 4,740 lbs, and has a max weight of 6,500 lbs.
You should be able to tow this with a 1/2 ton truck, but it all depends on your vehicle, so be sure to check your truck’s tow rating.
When calculating towing weight, it’s important to add the weight of EVERYTHING you will be carrying when figuring out your weight, including all the people that will be traveling with you while you’re towing the trailer.
