want to upgrade...any suggestions

We are thinking about upgrading to a fully enclosed unit. We currently have a Roo 21ss and are very happy with it. We have looked at the Windjammer series and also the ultra lite series. We have one child ( 3yo ) and were contemplating bunks or no bunks. Does anybody have any preferences or suggestions?

As the child grows or your family grows your children will want to bring a friend. If you are purchasing the next unit for 8-10 years I suggest looking at floor plans with bunk rooms. We have a Cardnial fifth wheel with a bunk room in the rear. Hard to find this floor plan in a fiver, but we love it!

I have a 26TBSS that has triple bunks. Bottom bunk is essentially on the floor which is where my 3yo sleeps. He has slept there since he was two with no problems. Plus we don't worry about him falling out of his bed.

we looked at the windjammer before we decided on the 8317ss. I liked the v front for towing, but the layout for the bunks wasn't working for us.
The bunks are great, giving the kids their own space for sleeping.

I agree with the bunk bed assesment. That is why we went with a Cherokee that has slides on both sides of the bunk beds. Front has a queen bed. On the bunks the lower is a jackknife couch the top a bunk. My kids love it. Its a big room with the slides out. They must have changed the floorplan a little from ours but this is real close. We really like it. But its on a seasonal lot so we don't tow it around any.

thanks for all the great feedback......I really like the bunk idea but not knowing if we need that much room right now makes the hide a bed idea look nice also....no plans on anymore kids of our own but the friends that might come in the future makes it really confusing on what to do.

I have found we hardly ever go without the kids bringing a friend! So you might keep that in the equation. The other thing about the slideouts is if it rains they have an almost full size room to play boardgames, cards, etc. There is plenty of laying on the floor room.

If you have kids along you want an open floorplan for sure. Good luck.

We love our V-lite- Ours has 2 slide outs, and the couch/bed, and dinette bed, as well.
Remember that space taken away with bedrooms is lost living space when you're up! And the V front is a HUGE closet, on our model. Good Luck, Randy
