Rating fifth wheel bunk models

Looking to trade in our rear living Montana fifth wheel for a bunk model for the kids, any information on quality models would be appreciated. Would prefer electric awnings as well as electric jacks would be interested in 35 to 40 feet. Thanks for any feedback you could provide.

Take a look at the Arctic Fox or Nash 27-5B. They have bunk beds, a slide and is right a 30' long. They are well built in LaGrande Oregon.

We have a Gulf Stream Canyon Trail 35FLFT and the kids love the loft area and their own 1/2 bath. It has a power awning and power rear jacks. All the slides, awning and jacks can be operated by remote control. You can get these options on pretty much anything now but have to order it extra.

If your happy with your Montana they have several bunk plans in the Mountaineer line that are very nice and you can get all the options your looking for.

Jayco has a massive bunkhouse model now. Something like the 365 BHS. It comes with two rear slides and a rear bathroom. The backroom can be divided in two or open, and it still has the main room slide and the front bedroom slide. Not sure on weights or length (I believe at least 35 feet).

I have the predecessor, the 345 BHS, and we live in it quite comfortably with two kids, two adults, two dogs, and a cat. I am mostly happy with the Jayco product. Have had a few issues, but Jayco has stood by their warranty and taken care of all issues to date.

Good luck with your search!

We did a lot of searching for bunks with two baths before we got our Keystone Cougar 324RLB... the rear "kids" room is huge, with a full sofa/queen bed, tv, removable table, slide-out, and queen loft with stairs (not bunk, not a ladder) above the rear room living area, half bath... and that's just the rear kids room, the rest of the unit is roomy as well.

Other units we liked were the Montana/Mountaineer quad bunk with bathroom, and the Chaparral bunk model as well.

Good luck, and have fun looking!

Caberto -
I know what model you are talking about and I agree it is a very nice setup. I looked at one, was impressed, and when I went back to the dealer they couldn't figure out which model I had looked at. That was right before I bought my Jayco Eagle Super Lite (30 ft). Between the two, I would have preferred the Cougar. I never got another chance to look at it before I got the Big Jayco Eagle (38 ft) -- we now fulltime with two boys, two dogs and a cat.
