Rockwood bunk options

Does any know if there are bunk options for the 8312ss? I have 5 kids so I need more beds. I don't want an outdoor kitchen and would rather have the bottom bunk instead of the closet/tv. Is there an option for a bottom bunk?

I looked at the 8327ss but I hate the table area. If it had a u-shaped table I'd get that one.

I want to be shorter than 36'.

Bunk options

We go on a lot of trips where we are only in one spot for one night so not having to make up a bed is best. However, the cube option looks like the easiest setup that the kids could do themselves but the 8311ss doesn't have the cube option that I can tell. I don't like the sofa air mattress beds.

The Jayco gives options for a bottom bunk or not but I like Rockwoods better.

I agree about the air mattress being a pain and it takes up the whole floor when out. It does inflate and deflate quickly tho. You could also take the couch out and get the cube set up from a dealer or online, If you like the rockwood it would be worth looking into.

The 8327ss would be perfect if it had a regular u-shaped table instead of that useless looking lounge table couch thing.

Plutoman, I have the 8327ss with 5 kids. What we did was ditch the fold up cushions in the lower bunk and go to Ikea and get a queen futon style couch. It works fantastically for us with the two girls sharing the queen sized mattress. As far as the huge sofa, it is perfect for the bunch of us to lounge on and watch tv on a rainy night. We keep 4 stack tables in the under couch storage bin for the rare time we eat inside and put the big table inside my garage at home, because you are right in that it IS useless! Good luck!

I tried the air mattress in mine and it sucks. I would put the kids on it to punish them! Lol.
