Bunk House Trailer Suggestions

We are looking to buy a new 5th wheel trailer. We have looked at about 1/2 dozen models and a couple online. Can anyone suggest or tell me what I have missed. We like features in one but not others. Hard to find the perfect one and getting tired of looking. I have been comparing every trailer we have looked at with the Columbus 385bh. Saw it online and fell in love with it. We have only looked at it online as none of the columbus dealers in Ontario Canada stock it. We like the setup and the furnishings look great and look like furniture that you would find in a house but really don't like that there is not a full wardrobe for the bunkhouse. Also, you spend all that money and you get a $10 fold up table in the bunkhouse (what were they thinking). Too bad they did not look at the bunkhouse of the Sierra 365saq. Here is what we have looked at so far:

2013 Sierra 365saq
2013 Sandpiper 365saq
2013 sabre36qbok
2013 Big Horn 37qb

Can anyone suggest or know of a set up with the bunkhouse like the Sierra 365saq and the rest of the trailer with the same set up as the Columbus 385bh?
Not sure if there are any.

thanks

Take a look at the Cedar Creek Silverback 35QB4. It does not have that large wardrobe in the back middle, the drawers are on the back wall. Mine has two couches on the bottom and two bunks on top so when all 4 in my family watch a movie at night we actually go back there and all have a comfortable spot to sit.

We ordered the 385BH after much thought. My wife doesn't like the idea of the smaller wardrobe either. We finally determined that our kids really don't need to much space for clothes right now. I am planning on putting shelves in the tall cabinet and removing the fold out table and adding more storage. I told them to leave the folding bed out all-together. I REALLY like the Sierra 365 but there seems to be more room in the main living area of the 385.

Thank you very much for your input. I guess the extra kitchen slide really makes a big difference.
