Doing RV Reviews really is the funnest thing. I love checking them all out and this one provided a couple of really great features.
One, it is a Grand Design and these days that is a pretty popular manufacturer, so I was happy to review a lighter weight family friendly model.
Second, the 2800BH is a bunkhouse model. Yes, these bunkhouses are super popular. They generally offer made up bed space for everyone. It also gives extra storage because you can put lots of stuff on or under the bunks.
Kids will get their own space to be in with toys etc… leaving the rest of the space free for other living tasks. Having bunks also allows kids to go to bed without the couch and dinette being used. This totally gives adults some down time in the evening and hopefully some time in the morning without disturbing the little sleeping beauties.
When we asked ourselves Does Size Matter? this is what we thought:
- the large dinette was great but the very narrow back seat may be a problem
- the kitchen had a lot of counter space and large drawers
- the door opening to the master bedroom was large, opening up the space and making it so that when the counter extension was up it did not completely block entry
- the lighter weight of the trailer allowed it to be towed by a mid duty truck, which would be less expensive yet you still get a roomy trailer to hang out in.
We think this is definitely a family trailer and it could be used for full-time living, Sometimer living or for weekends. It has everything you need and the space for living, so it all depends on your family and how you want to use it.
We would not recommend this trailer for couples or snowbirds simply because you probably don’t need the bunks and the space could be utilized differently for you.
BUT if you are one of those DIY folks, IMAGINE if you removed the bunks and set up a home office or craft room, eh? Now your thinking!
