We are looking at trading in for a Class A and have noticed several manufactures have now added bunk beds to their lines. Notably Thor with their Hurricane, Four winds with the Damon, and Newmar with their mid engine diesal the Canyon(Gas) and All Star(diesal).

Are there any more out there? We would like to know before we go on a road trip to see these 3.

I think winnabago is making one now too. I looked at them before I bought my MH and felt the bunks are too close too the Master bedroom.

I just saw a Hurricane this morning with bunk beds. It was at Barber's RV in Ventura, CA. It wasn't for sale, just getting some work done.

Don't know what year it was but it looked like about 34-36 ft.

I will be going back tomorrow to pick my rig up and I will try to get more info for you then if you'd like.

I just re-read your original post and you had already mentioned the Hurricane. Sorry about that.

There's other offerings from Newmar in gas. The Bay Star is like the Canyon Star you mentioned, but the Kountry Star is unique. It's not as entry level as some of the others, but it is different. It's the 3672 and has a bunk room rearward of the bedroom. It's also a bit longer, not sure if that's a concern for you.

Have you seen 3672?
I couldn't even find pictures of the bunkbeds on Newmar site.
We are new at RVing, just got the bug after 2 week rental of a class A during the summer.
We have 2 little girls and we really would like bunkbeds, we have seen the Allstar with the loft, but not the one with the bunkbed in the hallway. Not sure about it, the loft in the back take the back storage and the engine the one in the middle, not much left after that.
And also the engine is right under the living space where I think we would be travelling, so wouldn't this defeat the concept of smoother and quiter ride, and what about the heat generated from it?
Am I completly wrong in my thinking?
Too many things to learn!

Thanks everyone. We went today to see the Damon Daybreak 3276 (2006). The adults liked it but the child needs to be convinced to give up her huge bunkroom in our 5th wheel. I think she will come around though. Where the bunks are located didn't bother us a bit. Damon has 2 solid doors into the hallway area and the bunk area has a long curtain that goes around them as well. Our dd always uses blankets to make her space a cave and this one is pre done for her!

National RV also has a bunk model out that is a little bit different than the typical bunk floorplans that are out. Certainly worth looking at. I almost bought a Daybreak 3276 specifcally for the bunks.
