Just thought of it, but there are some hybrids with 3 fold out beds. Addtionally, one used to have a double bunk inside and 2 fold down beds. Dont k ow if they still make them.

@Sjm9911 Not sure why they are called bunks in this one - they are just normal beds

Chevy Express passenger van with the Duratec v8. They're only 'rated' to 10k pounds, but that's because the factory receiver is only rated for 1,000 pounds, the rear axle and the Duratec are both capable of a LOT more so just get a customer class V receiver installed.

Btw you'll have to get a 2016 or older, they dropped the big diesel in '17.

Do you already have the expedition? My 2001 Suburban K2500 (3/4 ton 4x4) is rated at 10,000 lbs with the 6.0l engine

Move up to the 8.1 liter (yeah hard to find) and you get
With 3.73 rear end (10,600lbs)
With 4.10 rear end you get 12,000 lbs)

As far as my setup, I also have 4 spaced the same as your kids. We made do in a bunkhouse of single on top and full on the bottom. I just told the kids that if they wanted to go camping they had to share a bed. So the oldest shared with the youngest on the bottom bunk. One took the top bunk and the 4th took the jack knife sofa. Once in a while I would drop the dinette into a bed, but I really never liked doing that.

Fast forward 7 years and the I was divorced and the youngest shared my queen up front for a year. Then my oldest turned 17 and stopped camping with us so the youngest got the top bunk. Another few years went by and now nobody wants to camp with me. It's weird how things can change in ways you might not have imagined.

Unfortunately there’s not a great vehicle for this situation. I see this question on here every month or so. I wish Ford still made the Excursion, you might look for one of those, but it’s been awhile since they make those.
Take a look at hybrid campers, they have a lot of bed space, and aren’t real heavy.
Good luck in your search.
