I don't know if any of you have seen this Newmar Cypress floorplan or not, but I just did and this has got to be just about the coolest bunkhouse layout I've seen for those of us who have kids & travel & camp! I think it's new for 2007. I imagine it ain't cheap, however.

Model CPFW 36RBDS

I saw this at a show and it blew me away. Problem is the weight. You need something bigger then a 1 ton to tow this bad boy.My kids were begging me to have another look,but we had a class A on the shopping list.

Aw gee its only 8 Tons when loaded to the max. An F150 could handle it well at least the first 11000lbs if you believe the ads.

Seriously that is a great floor plan for a large family- how many class A's have that much space. Since it is a Newmar - I presume it is a fifth wheel. So you will probably want an F450, Kodiak, or other MDT with a crew cab to haul it.

I don't know about it being for a large family. We could easily fit all of our stuff in it, but where would we all sleep. I guess if the dinette folded down it would work. For us though, we dream about the Fleetwood Orbit 260XP with 2 sets of bunk beds. That way there is no argument about who has to share with who.

Of course there is not a tow vehicle that could seat all of us comfortable AND pull that monster. I bet it is gorgeous inside though.

Well....here's an option! Seating for five and power to spare.....Of course with an eight person family you'll still need a second vehicle.

I just had a cool idea! You know those dollies they put under a short trailer so it can be pulled as a double behind another trailer?

Put a dolly under a fiver and pull it like a pup behind your Essex!

I did see a thingy for sale at the local RV showroom that you use to tow a 5er w/o a truck. I don't know if I would trust it though. It had 2 wheels and hitched to your vehicle, then the 5er hooked into a hitch above the wheels. Can't remember what it was called though.

Your problems are solved. Alton Manufacturing does a six door crew cab conversion for the F-650. Plenty of power to pull the beast and seating for up to nine.
