Looking for a family 5th wheel with bunk beds

I'm looking for a family 5th wheel with bunk beds, and am having a hard time figuring out what to get...

I'd like to sleep 3-4 kids without having to make their beds everyday. This is why we want bunk beds. Either 3-4 separate bunk beds, double bunk beds or 2 bunk beds and a couch.

I'd also like to keep the length as short as possible. I'm hoping in the 28'-34' range.

Currently, I have my eye on a Grand Design REFLECTION 28BH, and hope to be able to pick one up for under $40k.

Here are the points that I REALLY like about it:
  • Double bunk beds
  • LARGE double fridge (12 cu ft)
  • Auto leveling jacks
  • U shaped dinette

I'm looking for suggestions on other 5th wheels to look into. Used or new is fine (although, I have never bought new before). I keep hearing that Arctic Fox makes great stuff, but they don't appear to make a 5th wheel with bunk beds. Are there any other suggestions for brands and models?

Thanks!

Check out the Open Range 427 BHS. It has a bunk room.

Every manufacturer makes a bunk house model. I like the ones with a bunk room. I think kids would like a bunk room. But most bunk rooms are for 3 kids.

The one floorplan like the one posted with the pics I think is a great floorplan it features a bunk room plus a loft area. That would be great for 4 kids.

Again - there are too many to name. They even make a 5th wheel with the bunks in the front. That is a rare floorplan but has room for 4 kids.

Good luck sorting thru all the options.

We have a Grand Design Reflection 323BHS that has worked well for us with 3 kids. The only thing I really want to change is to replace the dinette with a free standing dining set. That way, we can move the chairs around as needed. While we donít watch a lot of tv, there are times weíve been stuck inside due to the rain and watched movies. There ends up being more butts than seats.

Hi, I just bought the Open Range Light 295bhs. We were going to buy the Reflection 28bh also, until we found Open Range at the RV Expo.

I purchased the 2018 Grand Design 311BHS last March 2018 which my Wife and I and two kids full time in. The back room came with the two designated beds and a couch which we took out and put a toddler bed there in its place. We use the bunk space above it for storage. Our daughter sleeps on the other side. What is really nice about this model is it comes with an additional 1/2 bathroom in the back attached to the kids room. Itís length is just under 37í so a little outside what youíre looking for. We paid 44K for ours which was on consignment at a dealership.

I too have the 323BHS Grand Design Reflection fifth wheel. We just love having the bunk room, and I use it as my man-cave when the grandkids are not with us.

We ordered ours with the SuperSofa and excluded the dinette that would have been seldom used. It's essentially a loveseat with right and left recliners--all leather wallhugger recliners.
