Our 25RB has a pull out under the side lounge to make a wider front bed at the lounge, no need to drop the dinette for a single (not that dropping the dinette table is a big deal).



Stick with the 25 FB, a really nice Airstream size and layout that you like, until you absolutely can't make do any longer. Maybe that will never happen and you can put the money away in his college fund.


Actually no one has said anything about towing....but you.......

If you have any experience traveling with kid(s) in a 25 foot camper I'm sure we would all like to hear it so we can add it to our own.

I was bein serious about the tent.

Or maybe get a class b and tow a 13' scamp for the kids? See the problem with doin it til he goes to college is that he's probably gonna start to be real smelly and gross by 12 or 13 and stay that way til... well maybe forever, but at least til after college.

So I never really considered close sleeping quarters with my son after he was 8.

That's my experience anyways. If not in a tent or another trailer I'd want him in the dinette far away from where I'm sleepin. Just sayin!

Hi

We went with tents for a lot of years. When you try to push that process into 3 seasons, you deal with a lot of wet tents. Same thing in the north west pretty much any time of year Ultimately that just became more of a hassle than we could deal with. That said, the "tent for the kids" works quite well if things are reasonably dry. It worked for me as a kid.

If you can afford to make the change the Bunk House would seem to be a logical option for you. We camped with 2 children in a pop up for a few years and they really did not like the dinette option because we wanted to eat breakfast when they just wanted to laze around. I think he needs his own space about now.
