You might also consider a used "tour bus", most are set up with several bunk beds in addition to the master suite. Most of these will be 42-45' long with a tag axle. That would increase your carrying capacity, etc. Anyway, just a thought. JH

I can't give you any info on Davis. We had already chosen Entegra and did not visit them.

Motor homes comfortably sleep two. Even with bunks you will be crowded. Unless you will never use it for more than a couple of days at a time. Get a Suburban and the biggest travel trailer you can pull. And always camp near to the bath house. JMO

I agree! You're gonna have a problem finding a suitable motorhome! I personally would go with a large 5th wheel, but that would require a suitable truck. You might want to wait until the kiddos leave the nest before getting that MH!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Only problem with a 5th wheel, is that you'll need a diesel truck to pull it and will still have to seat 7 in the truck while driving. I'm not aware of any configured to seat 7.

The tour bus idea is probabably the best so far, but talking bigger bucks.

Guess could pull a trailer with a motorhome which combined will give you enough sleeping space, but then you don't have a toad for excursions.

Actually, my model Class A DP motorhome would work. Large king size bed, two bunk beds, electric slide out queen size bed, jackknife sofa twin size bed, and dinette bed for small children. 2011 Winnebago 39N. But --- there were only about 30 of them made.

What is your budget/ price range?

I still think carrying a tent for the overflow of kids would be a viable solution. Not sure what you're going to do if you hit three days of steady rain, and everyone is confined to the coach. If your family is anything like mine when I was growing up, you'll need a referee.
