Dukester, I also don't like the steps from ground the the main floor and the steps up to the bedroom. The generator located below the bed, would be a huge noise issue. Also, the bed of the truck staying free is another issue and an excellent point. I will probably stick with the 29 as well. If I may ask, where are you getting your from? I live in North FL, BTW. Thanks for you input! Happy camping.

Purchasing mine from Jeff Couch's RV Nation in Hamilton Ohio. I'm using Mr Scott Peavley. It is scheduled for completion this week. We are getting excited of course.

Dukester, congratulations on the new 29HFS. Did you go with the dinette or optional recliner seating?

Hi Kaboom, we ordered all three packages incl. extreme weather, recliners for slide out, and fold-down dinette for the garage. That way I can also use it for a study/computer area and have my own TV for sports, etc. Garage/man-cave, I guess...what I am looking for are ideas for additional stowage areas and how to mount them on these trailer walls. My unit rolled off the manufacturing line today and we will go retrieve it Easter weekend.

Congratulations, the recliners were not an option on the 27 HFS when we purchased. It sounds like they have taken care of all the things we wish were different on the 27hfs.

Are any of you going to Sturgis this year 4-10 August? And, if you have been before, I'd like to hear about your recommendations for parking the Trailer. Right now, I am looking at Katmandu RV Campground...I'm not real wild about being in the middle of all the craziness...I can ride my bike in for whatever events we want to go to. The good thing about Katmandu is they have a shuttle (no traffic to deal with on the bike or parking to find).

Also - am going to Boone (Blue Ridge) in June - looking at Grandfather Mountain Campgrounds. Would love your comments for that place or any other. Thanks.

STLfan, I'm settled on the 29hfs now. I didn't order one, but picked one that was already on order by the dealer. It has the basic features, plus recliner couch IPO of the dinette. Gen prep, but no gen; doesn't have the extreme weather package, that I would have preferred (but don't think its a big deal); and the single bed in the toy bay. I was initially told it should be on line by today (4/10) but now they say 5/1, which seems better, since I am going to begin a vacation trip from there up into Canada, through New England and back to FL. I was wondering if some kind of moveable island that could give much needed working surface and storage would be a good idea (in your opinion) in the kitchen (picture attached) and if a folding table and chairs would be good to carry along? I am also concerned about no oven. You mentioned a few things that could have been designed better; can you elaborate, please?

Dukester, I'm not going to Sturgis this year, am planning on next year for the 75th. I will send you a PM with the information of places we have stayed in the past.
