I would say the one that fits you best. The BH is most likely the most popular.

I agree and for the two of us the RH seems like it'll fit the bill well.

Mainly just curious, but I did notice that there seemed like a lot of BH models from what I've seen on the board here. Now is that because lot's of them have children going along or are they using that space for an office ?

Love my BH. It provides extra beds when we need them and the bunks fold up for a big closet.

I-RV,

I have the 2011 390BH...am I missing something? Didn't realize the bunks fold up.

I have the BH model. It's the floorplan my DW wanted. I wanted the RB. We have two children (both grown) with significant others. That makes 6 adults when we all go camping. Two sleep on the sofa bed, two sleep on the dinette bed. DW & I in the back. The only thing we use the bunks for is storage. I think maybe twice someone slept in the bottom bunk.

We very seldom all camp together. It's usually just me & DW but when they do come along everyone has a place to sleep.

I'm kind of a big guy, I hate the small bathroom in the BH.

David,
Not sure what year they first put the fold up bunks in but I don't think they were in the '11.

We like the 38A because it has both of what most seem to like, it is a RB and BH and 3 slides.

Besides the upper bunk folding up, you should have a clothes rod at the top.

We have a 2012 390BH60. We have two kids. The bunks are the only reason that we traded out of our Fleetwood Discovery. Price point and Floorplan was also a major factor.

Had to look the QL floor plan up. Look's good , something that would have been good for us. Like the fact that you can reach around to the fridg. while driving to get a cold one .

The dealer had our RB on the lot at a price that was hard to pass up. They all have their pluses and minus's.

Oh we love it. Would not buy another. I was just surprised that it's not more popular. We love the amount of room.

Wouldn't trade it.

The QL is very similar to the layout in our past two MHs. We only changed to the BH because of our kids

Kenny,
If you love it and love the amount of room and wouldn't trade it, why would you not buy another?

I probably said that wrong.....I meant I would not buy different if I would go back in time knowing what I know about it now. I would not buy another model. Sheesh, reading it now I can understand why it would not convey what I meant

Sorry.....I have a bad habit of saying or writing things with improper grammar.

Bottom Line: I love my QL

Kenny,
Oh well. I guess we can forgive you for not precisely conveying what you mean. I'm sure we have all been there at one time or another!! (LOL!!)
