A lot of people- even for a bunkhouse!

Two trips now and both times we've had full houses.

Two weeks ago was camping near Knoebels and we had my family of 4 (with the baby in a pack and play) and a friend's family of 5 camping in our camper.

This weekend, we've had 3 families together with 10 of us total all camped together in the camper.

I gotta say- we are loving the bunkhouse!

This long holiday weekend was nice- each family traveled about 6 hours to a central location to stay together and have fun. All of the cousins got along amazingly for a weekend of bike riding, pool, fishing and now even some canoeing.

And, somehow- the food has been some of the greatest eats - EVER.

I like my space. Too crowded for me.

Amen to that. I would point them in the direction of the nearest RV dealership. Seems things get tore up when overcrowding becomes an issue. I like my camper way more than I do my extended family.

We are at Pigeon Forge this week with a total of 8. Our youngest and his friend plus my BIL and his 3. Kid ages 11 and under. Put a blow up mattress is the bunkhouse floor and have not used the couch in the main slide. We typically travel with a "possee" , thus the bunkhouse. The two older kids are grown and out on thier own. When we do go with just tbe DW and the boy it seems very quiet. I'm with you...love my bunkhouse!

Waaaay too many kids for this old old man. That's why I don't camp on weekends anymore.

That's why they call it the great outdoors. With the 21' awning and outside kitchen, plus a gazebo, there is xtra elbow room. We only have this many 2x a year and niece and nephew talk about it all year round. It's usually just the DW, the boy and one of his friends. The other family we travel with has a class A. I am an active person and ususally lesd hikes, biking, kayaking..my buddy calls me " tour guide Ken" The biggest compliment I had this year was when my RV travel buddy's daughter told her dad they needed to plan all of thier camping trips with us...he told her..." we can go without Mark"..her response..."yeah, but why would u want to"
