When we started looking in December we toured at least 10 different rigs. The wife & I loved the 24MBH but we needed to sell our old motorhome first. We got it sold in April and when we called the dealer, the one they had was sold and the 2 in transport were also spoken for but they had one scheduled for build in June!?! After calling 4 different dealerships I almost gave up, but kept hearing that they don't stay in stock since they are so popular. But I did finally find one and ended up doing the deal via the internet and within the week we had it home.


We have used a few weekends and did one 10 day long trip and couldn't be happier with it. We travel with 2 kids (one tween & one teen) and 2 dogs. There are a couple things I wish it had, like a pass through for fishing rods, windows that open farther and a roof vent in the main living area with a fantastic fan.

We have 5 gallon buckets in each of those compartments with plenty of room to stack stuff on top and around the buckets. The slide storage compartment is long an perfect for brooms, sweeper, fishing poles, tire chocks etc. Inside storage is ample and haven't run out of room yet with 2 adults, 2 kids, and our lab/basset mix.

I would say there is a sense of extra space in the coach when the murphy bed is folded up and the couch is out. The couch sits far back in the room to provide this extra space. The couch can seat 3 adults comfortably. We feel like we could add extra seats or bar stools around the counter top if needed for inclement weather while having friends over.

We love the huge awning and the outside fridge. Outside sink and stove is nice to have as well.

Only problems so far: Trim strip came loose on slide, trim strip came loose in bathroom. Both easy fixes. I striped the plastic plug trying to lube the antenna. Led is way too bright. Can be fixed with dimmer remote or polyimide tape.

Best of luck in your decision.
Looking to order one soon but local dealer doesn't have one. Is there storage under the bottom bunk, and if so how do you access it? I can't find a picture online showing access at all.

Thanks!

Yes there is storage under the bunk . You lift the matress and plywood base from the inside. I'm debating on removing the trim panel under the bunk and building shelves in the area.

Thanks for the info. I've seen the Rockwood 2509s has a pretty slick setup on theirs. It is one of the few things I prefer on their design. I'm certainly leaning more towards Jayco as we've had our 1207 for 10 years without any problems. Let me know what you come up with as I have a feeling that I will be making to modifications to that lower bunk storage. As a pop-up camper, I'm looking to get out of the business of lifting benches/beds to get to storage!

Anyone have the Sanicon system or Auto level package on a 2017? I'm curious to see pictures of the Sanicon system factory installed on the 24MBH as well peoples review of the factory installed auto leveling system. I'm afraid I'm going to have order these options without even seeing what they look like. I can't seem to find one anywhere to look at with these option.

I have been thinking about buying one of those telescoping ladders and storing it under there (if it will fit). One of those once in a while needed items. Unfortunately our trailer did not have a ladder when we purchased it. I am not a light person so I knew I wanted something aftermarket anyways.

I found that under bunk storage area by accident!

Here is what I did with my under couch area:

Before:
After:


I put neodymium magnets on the front panel and it sticks to the black frame pieces you see above. It stays put on the road just fine. I use one clear bin and a couple of foot lockers under there to store stuff.

We considered this unit but the bed was too uncomfortable and I'm getting old... so we ended up with the one in my sig.

Just took our 24MBH out for its first trip. I picked it up from the dealer at 11am and we headed out for to the campground at 3pm. We had 5 people in the trailer since one of our girls brought her friend.

My thoughts so far:

Storage: Outside is pretty good. I put the "setup" stuff in one compartment. Tools go in the other side. Chairs and canopy go in the long one in the slide. Storage inside is spread out all over the place but sufficient. It needs more "big" storage spots in the kitchen, IMO (like for coffee makers or other small appliances).

Layout: The murphy bed setup is great. We camped with some friends and for one dinner we had 10 people eating in the trailer. Six kids sat at the dinette and four adults sat at the couch using the included folding table with two folding chairs. It didn't even feel crowded. When it was just the five of us, it felt very spacious. The couch is even nice to nap on when it's laid out flat. You don't even need to bring down the bed for a quick lie down.

Other thoughts: This trailer is high off the ground. The stabilizers are six inches higher than some other trailers we were looking at. I think that's a good thing as it makes it easier to go up steep driveways and will be nice when we take it boondocking off-road. Also, the included mattress is hard. It's going to need a bed topper or something. The build of the trailer is definitely more sturdy than our previous Jayco (a Jay Feather X213).

We had a good trip and enjoyed the trailer a lot.
