RFK, they are a great all around camper, we've looked at quite a few but this one had the best bang for the buck! I'm sure my daughter will feel like your son does but probably at an earlier age, but for now all she asks to do is go camping! HaHa!

We are very happy with ours. Although we were thinking a few years down the road it would be nice to upgrade to one of the 5th wheel toy haulers. Our 27HFS is only a year old, and my truck is a 2013, so it will definitely be a few years down the road, but I really like the layout of the 5th wheels. I'm sure they will change a bunch before we decide to do it.

How are you finding the u-dinette comfort/convenience compared to the flip sofa?

We haven't taken the 27 out yet but just from being in it with our daughter in the garage it is way better. She had a hard time reaching the table in the 24 and kept spilling her food trying to reach it from sitting on the fold down couch. We almost went and had a bigger table top made to make it a lot more comfortable.

I know I am not the person you are asking this question too, nor can I offer a comparison since I have never used that particular style of flip sofa. What I can say is I hate the U dinette sofa! It is one of the most uncomfortable setting arrangements I have ever sat on! It's not bad as a bed, but as a sofa it stinks! We plan to pull ours out this winter, and replace it with this.

Delaney Split-Back Futon Sofa Bed - Walmart.com

Or at least something similar.

I never understand why they make those u-dinettes so upright in all campers. It seems like it would be pretty easy to make them decent. That is one thing that surprised me on the 24...those flip sofa's actually have more of a gradual slant and feel like a normal sofa. Interesting idea you have there with the futon.

I could see if your a bigger person the U-dinette might be uncomfortable but I'm only 5' 11' 200lbs and I slide in there pretty easily. We don't really hang out in the TH to much if it nice outside so the need for an actual couch isn't something we need right now. That futon idea is ideal though!

Same here on the budget on the fiver, bu the I'm hopefull in the next 5-10 years.

As for the dinette, we can set at it to eat if we have to, but do spend the majority of our time outside. When it gets a little nasty out, and we wind up inside to watch tv or something is when it really stinks. Plan to use the futon and tv trays if we need to set inside to eat.

And I csnt take credit for the idea, saw it in another thread b here. I do like that particular futon though because of the weight and ease of use. Plus you csn fold one side down at a time if you like, which would be ideal when we are trying to put the grandson to sleep.

I wouldn't mind putting in the futon but I don't think my wife would like me tearing out our new dinette just yet! HaHa!
