We bought the 25BHS last year and we love the floor plan. True, the bathroom is a little tight, but the huge living area is a must have when you have a toddler (we have a 3 year old daughter). I think the 26RKS also has a bunk option in the slide out - worth a look.

We purchased our 2011 25BHS in Feb 2012. We looked at the 26 (non slide) and the 28BHS and for us (me, the wife and 2 boys - 11 and 16) it was more than comfy on the too nasty to be outside days. We pulled it from Oshkosh WI to St Louis MO and then to Chicago with my 2011 1/2 Suburban without any issues. We are pulling it to Washington DC this Summer. It's a great layout!

We have a 2011 25BHS and love it. We have twin 4 year old kids and they love the space to play inside. The bathroom is a little small but it is very functional. We live in Montana and ours has the full foil wrap and enclosed/heated underbelly with the big furnace. We boondock all the time so the extra clearance of this trailer is very good for us. Also the sewer drain is up tight to the frame and isn't prone to being ripped off. We looked at literally 50 or more trailers and this one almost met every item we had listed out that we wanted.

Now we upgraded TV and the family has grown to 3 kids, really wish we had the slide. Reluctantly thinking about the 29QBH so we have bunk room for the kids and friends...plus a place for thier mess to be contained :-)

That said, and I know you aren't looking at the 26BH, we have had no issues in the year we have had it. A couple of very small items like loose trim that I just fixed myself, overall very happy with the build quality of out unit.
We upgraded to the 29QBH last season and never looked back

One thing for the OP to consider - if you're planning on having more kids within a couple of years of each other, the oldest might not quite be big enough to hang out on the top bunk (I think my 4 y/o will finally try it this year). You might consider a model with a lower full bunk in case they have to double up for a while. My 4 y/o has been on the couch the last 2 seasons with the twins (now almost 2) in pack-and-plays on my custom platform between the bunks (but I'll admit twins is a bit of a special situation).

It's worked out pretty well so far!

I really like the Jay Flight line. Lots of good plans if you put some thought into what you need. I'd love to have a trailer with more "living space," but at the end of the day bunks just make more sense for us. Getting the "super slide" really helps maximize the living space you do have.
