VNose Roo

I made this floorplan out of a 17 roo. I used a couple of other floorplans to make this one. What do you guys think? Yes I did see a recent trailer with the vnose for the idea but it was 29ft.

Wow !!!, you could sleep a small army in there. Have you thought of submitting it to a manufacturer? Since the market is really leaning toward units with bunks this fits right in with todays designs. Quite a bit of room in a compact unit. Great Job!!!!!

Nice drawing, but I have a question. How much height stagger do you have on the front bunks? Looks like you may have trouble trying to get them to close according to the dimensions. Can't see how they're going to miss each other and the cabinetry. Also looks like the rear bed is going to have to slide in thru the shower and bath area. Looks like it may run over the refer too. Neat idea, but what does it look like ready for travel?

It is a ruff drawing. The front bunks will work because i saw them on another trailer and those are the dimmensions. Even though it appears to be at a 45* angle it is actually more like 35*. Here is another with some ad ons.

it's a hybrid setup, not a bed-slide setup. meaning the beds fold out like a tailgate and canvas is pulled over the platform. so none of the beds come inside, they simply fold up and the mattresses are vertical.
so, when they are folded out, it's a travel trailer with popup-like beds.

Love the design. Just one question. Would'nt there be a "step up" under the front bunks flooring for the propane tanks and battery? How much would this reduce floor to ceiling height? Internal access for tank swaps? External venting? Also, has there been any studys done on how much v-noses increase fuel economy? I'm assuming this is the purpose of the design. Ok, I guess that was more than one question, just thinking out loud.

Hey bdeuce...looks pretty cool! i like the 2102 Windjammer by Rockwood too. It looks like it packs a lot in a small package. I've seen other trailers like your design as well, and wonder if water intrusion would be a problem at the front if traveling thru a heavy rain. Forest River definitely has a leg up when it comes to innovative floorplans!
