We have a 26VBH, it's actually 29" long. Just me, DW and Koda our pet! But I hunt alot and have others with us so we want a BH. Have made many upgrades to it, maybe one of theses days will get around to posting some of them! Me, my brother, his DW and our 2 pets (koda & rascal) have a trip planned from TX, NM,AZ,NV and CA to OR and WA this may. Looking forward to it. My DW (has a few years 'til retirement) will fly into OR and we will pick her up at her brothers house, on to WA (her home) then back to TX by way of ID, Mt, WY, CO, OK.
