We have the 3950, we have owned the coachmen 35BH and the fleetwood fiesta both of which where bunk models but do not even come close to the livability of the newmar 3950.

As far as the bunk floorplans, the 3950 is definitely my favorite (although I've never actually seen one in person and I've heard that it's quite limited as far as outside storage). Unfortunately they didn't make that many of them so they aren't that common to find used.

I don't know why other makes haven't done the same 'loft' design for family models (I think Thor makes the Outlaw Toy Hauler like that but I think that's it). It would work especially well on gassers since they can build it low behind the rear wheels (just like the mid-engine AllStar).

I know you said you were concerned about Thor quality. But we in fact have a 2008 Damon Challenger 376. This floor plan suited us very well. Its one of the few, if not the only one, that has 2 couches up front, full dinette,bunks,and a queen bed in the back. I believe Damon (thor) phased this model out in 2010. We have owned this MH for 3 years now and not one problem or complaint with the build quality. Also I have had very good luck with customer service. It sits on ford f53 chassis. 19.5 tires. Rides great ( I use that term loosely) and is quiet. If you can find one it's definitely worth taking a peek. I believe they still make this floor plan in a DP.Just my 2 cents.

We have a 2008 Winnebago Vista 32K. Bunkhouse style and welike it very much. There is a queen size bed in the back and the two bunks are on a slide out on the passenger side. Since its just the wife and I we use the top bunk for additional storage. I get the queen bed to myself because I am over 6'2" and she sleeps in the lower bunk. The only thing I did was to raise the upper bunk bed so DW could sit upright while in the lower bunk bed for reading.

We have a Tiffin 35 QBA and love it. We have traveled with 4 adults and 2 grandchildren and it works very well. I especially like the room when parked. And plenty of storage.
Good luck.

35QBA x2

Drove 6,000 miles in one trip last year with 5 adults and two very large dogs. Top bunk belonged to my 25 yr old daughter and the bottom bunk belonged to which ever dog got it first. The other had to sleep on the floor cushions we brought with us.
Moving down the road with all those people and all the fur... no problem. It was even better when we stopped and could open all four slides!

When we bought our current motorhome, my wife wanted initially to get one with bunks. I said no. Lets get one with two couches or a couch and fixed dinette. Do you guys think a bunk model DP is worth less than a non bunk model? I'm just curious cause my wife saw a really nice Kountry Star that she liked(after we already bought..lol). I found a really nice kountry star that I liked. The bunk model was $25000 less than the non bunk model and they were the same year, same colors, same engine and had similar options.

Demands how you are using the RV. We love the bunks because when traveling we do not have to make up the dinette or sofa sleeper each day. The kids kids have a shelf to keep their stuff in each bunk area and DVD players in each bunk. If we have someone come into the rv to visit we simply pull the curtains on the bunks. If a DP after the kids are gone many bunk models can be converted to an area for washer/dryer and storage. Other idea is to convert area to a large closet. For us with small kids the bunks are perfect.

As Ian says, I think it depends on each situation. We have young kids which go to bed much earlier than we do - if they sleep in the front, we have to stay in the back as soon as it's their bedtime. I also don't like having to setup / un-setup the beds every night and morning but really it doesn't take that much time. As far as the value, I don't think there's that much difference, certainly less people want bunkhouses but there's also a lot less of them available on the market so I think bunkhouses actually sell pretty well.

For us it's important enough that I'll be adding bunks to it in the spring.

We bought a 2011 Georgetown 350TS new in Dec 2012. This is our first RV so don't have anything to compare it to, but we love it. We are having to send back to Forest River in Goshen (Elkhart) for roof leak repair. So their fix of that leak will be the point that we base our satisfaction on. We like the fact we can take grandkids and have sleeping quarters for them without breaking down sofa or dinette.

hi there i bought a palazzo 33.3 last august and have had the best experiance with a motorhome so far not issues at all, i use my bunks as a bar/ storage area and i took the matresse and out them on the overhead bunk that comes down from the celing above the drivers area in the from its a queen size bed, i also tow a jeep wrangler/ or a untility trailer with a golf cart. the ride is nice and smooth and its just an over all good coach, i like the diesel motor in back had=s tons of power, had a 2012 coachmen and we loved it untill everytime we would go away we would have to stop and get things fixed tradded it in on the thor palazzo and got a great deal. as of towing the coachmen we could feel the jeep tugging on the rear of the coach and in the thor its like its not there and it has plenty of power for the hills/ mountains. i dont push my unit or abuse it like i have seen others do. this is my baby and we are thinking about possably starting full timing it it but we will wait to see on that part, I cant get over not having a "home base" to come to. Any questions feel free to ask you can pvt me if you would like jim

We have a Winne 35-J and have had very few problems. We love the floor plan. I test drove the 35 QBA by Tiffin and wasn't impressed. I would by the Winne again if I did it all over.
