2011 Fleetwood Discovery 42A Bunk Model
Hi, everybody! I am very curious about the 2011 Fleetwood Discovery 42A Bunk Model. Our family had a Georgie Boy back in 2002 (I think it was a 1998 model) but wished we had more room. Flash-forward 12 years, and we now have five children (1 child engaged, 1 college student, 1 high schooler, 1 child who is 12 physically but 4 mentally, & 1 1st grader). From what I can see in the pictures on the web, the 42A bunk looks like it might be a good fit for our family as far as room goes. I don't think our child who is getting married next year would be traveling with us, but the high schooler on down definitely would. Our college-aged child might come along. We had four of our five children when we traveled in 2002, but our 12-year-old was a baby, and the oldest three were much younger. I'm guessing that it would be more difficult now that they are bigger. On the flip side, though, now it's easier for them to take care of themselves and sleep anywhere, so those kinds of things aren't an issue anymore.
We very much enjoyed our stay at The Pirateland Campground in Myrtle Beach in 2002. I think that they had cottages/houses for rental, too, so I thought that if there were too many people for the RV, they could stay in a rental if one was available at whatever campground we were staying at. I was wondering if anyone would please give me their opinion regarding the 2011 Fleetwood Discovery 42A Bunk Model, its price range, and what traveling with that many people would be like. We love to bike ride, hang-out outside and play cards, etc., as well as swim, take walks, etc. However, we also love to just relax together, maybe watch TV. So if it happens to be really hot wherever we are or raining, most if not all of us would be in the RV.
I would greatly appreciate any and all opinions regarding this situation as well as the RV itself I mentioned. Just please don't be mean & say that I am an idiot for even considering this (-; . I have always dreamed of getting another RV, and my high school aged daughter and 1st grader are totally on board with the idea. After watching so many episodes of Hotel Impossible, now I'm paranoid about going to a hotel as well (-; !
