Trade to a 30 bunk?

We are currently in a 2017 28 RBQ and are considering moving to a 2018 30 bunk. We have 2 young kids and like the idea of not having to convert the dinette and couch into beds.

Has anyone else made a similar move? Happy to hear thoughts.

Thanks!

30" Bunk

We have a 2017 30 Bunk We are a bit ahead of you in life. We bought it to share without sons and their families. We have stayed with couple friends. We stayed in it with 4 adults and 2 kids. You will love it.

We went from a 25 to the bunk. Won't go back until it's just 2 of us.

I always say the 30 is bigger on the inside than the 25 but not really on the outside. Tows pretty much the same to me. Just a little tighter in spots. But so much more room inside.

Trade to a 30 bunk?

Went from a 25 to a 30 for the very reason you stated - making beds every night for two of us became unbearable.

The extra space in addition to the dedicated sleeping space were a game changer for us. As someone already mentioned we plan on keeping it until the kids leave us behind!

The layout of the 30 is great because, while busy, it has a lot of bedding options. You won't go wrong with it.

I will say we ended up ditching the bunk since we found its use was short lived. We have 2 kids under 10. My daughter was okay with the bunk the first year, but hated it by the second. It's fairly claustrophobic and hard for 4-footers to get into and we ended up making the beds anyway.

You could see the same trend developing in my son, so we ditched it, and got the trailer we wanted and resigned ourselves to making the beds.

In the 30, that will be less of an issue, unless your kids slug it out when put in the same bed. In that case you won't end up with too much of an advantage over the 28. It's pretty expensive to trade these things so maybe run it another year?

We found the 30'BH to be a great family camper. We had 3 kids in it for years and it worked great. The upper bunk also became a great place to put gear/clothes if nobody is sleeping in it.

Once the kids grew up and stopped going as often, we switched to an FC27 with twins. For two, the more open floor plan and pano windows is much nicer and we occasionally use the couch and dinette as beds now.

Good insights here - I can see that top bunk getting crowded as time passes.

Our only experience is with an '05 Bunkhouse. With two kids 11 & 12 years old, it's perfect. I get up way earlier than everyone else, and being able to close the bedrooms off and sit and have coffee, read, etc is my absolute favorite aspect. Time will tell if they get tired of the bunks, but my lanky brother who's 6'3" spent a night in the top bunk with little complaint or fuss.

Again, nothing for me to compare it to, but I'm sooooo glad we got the bunkhouse!
