After more than 1,000 nights in a RB, we would not choose the FB unless we had to, such as a specialty trailer like the Eddie Bauer. The rear view can be great and it can be very bad; the front view is never bad. And there are practical reasons for door near the front, one of which is our recliners face aft and we don't have eyes in the back of our head. Another is the deeply tinted rock guards provide a sun and visibility screen to our living room, we can see out but they can't see in, and the sun glare and heat gain is reduced.

However, it's all really not that important or everyone would agree which is best.

After two SOB trailers with rear bedrooms, I thought I'd try something different so we got our 27 FC Front Bedroom. We're on the road now, our third vacation in this trailer and the configuration has really grown on me. We stop in rest areas when we're on the road and I like sleeping next to our TV for security reasons. After towing 31' & 33' SOB's, our 27FC is a dream to maneuver.

Front bed with storage

I think a floor plan which is like my 30 rear bed, but actually just flipped with the front set up without the panoramic windows, but with the closets, I would like that. This would allow the nice view from my recliners out the back, which would be very cool. Or, with the dinette and possibly a more functional galley.

Who knows....

Happy trails and Good Luck
