I would say either move your sons bed to the play room or move the playroom toys to his room. You can put up a lock or gate to keep your son out of either room. You can put an airbed in the remaining room.

I would probably put a bed or something in the play room, and do what I can to keep my sons routine the same. Or as Christy mentioned asking them to stay in a hotel or something.

Politely suggest a nearby hotel? Just so they are comfortable. If that won't work, just empty the playroom and place a lock on the door so they have privacy (even a hook lock will do, or one of the sliding ones that only work from the inside up high on the door). Maybe put the air mattress in there for them and put one of those egg crepe pads on it so it will be more comfy.

What if you move your son's bed into the playroom and put a mattress down in his room for your parents? That way you don't have to move the toys, but there's still room for everyone and your son can feel like he's giving his grandparents a special gift. If he tells them all the cool things about his room, I'll bet he'll really enjoy sharing it with them. (Make sure to tell him to ask before going in it while they're here.) It'll be tight in a trailer, so good thing the weather's nice. :)
