Floor plan feedback - front bunk models

We are looking to purchase a TT. We were shown a floor plan that had bunks up front instead of in the back. I liked it because the slide out in the master gave nice room at the end of the bed. Is there any advice that folks may have regarding their likes or dislikes of these models? Resell potential? Pros and cons? Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I would guess those have lighter tongue weights making them more susceptible to sway but I don't know the model you're looking at. I wouldn't entirely mind that layout. We had one with rear bunks and it had slide in the bunk room. Really wished the master would have had a slide but it did allow for more storage of the kid's stuff. I would say it depends on your situation whether or not it's right for you and resale would be the same thing for the potential buyer.

Floor Plan Feedback

My wife and I own a 2016 Keystone Cougar 32FBS with bunk beds up front. This trailer has three slides: The bunk room, the living room, and the master bedroom.

The slide in the master bedroom is great because it does provide a good amount of room at the foot of the bed. We liked this model because of the slide in the master bedroom. We were looking for a trailer that had enough room that we could put a dog bed at the foot of the master bed for our dog (an 11 year old Greyhound).

The bunks in front provide a lot of storage area for us at this point. We have not used the bunks or that room as a bedroom just yet, but we will be next season as we now have a new grandson.

As far as sway, we have not had any issue whatsoever when towing this trailer. Needless to say we an anti sway "package".

Find what you think will meet your needs and go for it.

What model and floorplan number were you looking at? We were also looking for a floorplan where there is a full bed and a bunk above it up front. 10 years ago there were ones like that.

With any floorplan it has to meet "your" families lifestyle. Some of us boondock where without the slides opened up, can I still get to the frig or bathroom comes into question. Others like a big bathroom, big shower stall. My #1 is how big is the fresh water tank. If that line of tt's only has a 30 gallon water tank, there is no use looking at anymore in that line. I can't change it. I look for at least 50 gallons.

Were looking for a 25 to 29' (30'?) tt with a larger shower than we have now, sleeping for 3 adults, 50gal. fresh or larger, at least one slide, no flat roof, couch of at least 64". and arctic package if possible. And all this in a Winnebago / Arctic Fox quality unit.
