Thanks everyone, I think we will give the 30 bunk a shot.

I don't think the amount of storage space is much different in either bed model, it's the access that is different. The single rear outside access gets us to our exterior camping stuff, lift the queen mattress for easy access to everything else without going outside.

There is another front side storage access that we drastically reduced in size for our recliner install, we keep our power stabilizer drill, CorrosionX and some lubes in there.

We found some long and narrow clear plastic storage boxes to fit through the little side access hatches which organizes gear nicely and makes it easier to retrieve through those little openings. We can put four of them in there, and I keep our wheel torque wrench and hitch wrenches just inside the hatch on an old braided rug, handy for crawling underneath if needed. All the ProPride hitch parts are bolted to the tongue and the receiver stays there as well. Works pretty well.
To us, the outside storage access IS a big deal, having had 2 earlier 25' models with only one outside access compartment. We have 3 now with our front twin, and it means not having to go inside to get at tools, propane hose's, for BBQ, 4-folding chairs, 8x10 outdoor carpet, folding table, fishing rod, tackle box, screened in room for picnic table, portable shade, hiking sticks, fresh water hoses, chocks, leveling blocks, electric drill for leveling jacks, portable propane bottles, TV cable, or tire covers....(did I miss something?) LoL
Anyway, I am sure they will discover the one that best suites their needs...we all adapt to our AS... Sounds like the 30' bunk may be a good choice...

Easy access to all that outdoor gear without going inside, or pulling it through all those little hatches. Tri-fold tonneau for complete access and ProPride hitch to allows space to drop the tailgate.

Hopefully I'm not repeating anything as I may have missed some of the posts on this thread.

Since this is such a big change for the OP in terms of trailer size I would highly suggest purchasing a newer but used unit. This way if it doesn't suit your needs you won't lose as much money selling it as you would compared to a new unit.

Good luck with whatever you decide!

Good choice! No slide outs?

Are you getting one for this summer, or longer term planning?

Happy Trails . . .
