We have a 2011 329bhu. We have two teens and a couple of dogs. We also camp other couples (leave kids home) on occasion. The bunk beds are roomy enough for adults.
We use ours a fair bit and really enjoy the amenities, quality of workmanship, appliance quality. We put around 6k miles/yr. We live in south texas and have taken the trailer to minnesota, north dakota, colorado and.the smokies. This past christmas we camped in mid-teens temps with no adverse affects. We spend most summers in the texas heat (temps in the 100's) very comfortably.
I replaced the oem goodyear marathons at around 10k mi. They were worn due to never being balanced. The tire shop gave me a warranty adjustment due to the irregular wear ;-) (from now on, the first stop after purchase of any trailer will be for tire balancing!). The axles are dexter ezlube w/dexter never-adjust brakes. Very pleased w/dexter quality.
We have had coleman, keystone, and two starcrafts. We have seen this layout in jayco and forest river and prefer the starcraft version. For the money, you cant beat the value.
