Cant help much with the decisions, its basically boils down to what fits the user in the end. However, we do have the 29.5bhds like you looked at and love it! Probably camped in it close to 45 days now and still love it.

Love Bunkhouse

We have a 5 yr old and 7 yr old. With our bunkhouse they have there own space and own bed. We don't have put up and take down their beds everyday. It also great for hauling all the junk they collect in the bunks.

You might want to compare the Eagle 31.5 FBHS 4 bunks and Eagle 27.5 BHS 2 bunks. I have the 27.5, great for two kids (beds over 6 1/2 ft.), bunk house has door and TV (really camping with Dish Tailgater}. The only thing I'd change is the table for a dinette.

tough decision as the three bunk models are all soo nice!

The 27.5 and 29.5 do not have TVs in master bedroom. 29.5 has no TV in bunk room.

The 31.5 has TV in master and bunk rooms, and has separate toilet, but bunks appear rather narrow at 30" wide. That is like a coffin!

I like the idea of a separate bunk room with door, but would like wider than 30" bunks and a TV in bunk room. TV in master is also a PLUS.

Now which model has all of this and is at 10,000# GVWR or less?

Well, its come down to.....


2008 Jayco Eagle Superlite 31BHDS
OR
2014 Jayco 29.5 Eagle HT BHDS.


Prices:

2008: Dealer will go $16K plus tax and license
2014: Dealer will go $30K plus tax and license

Basically the used is 1/2 price of the new!


Any guidance between these two units? Pros and Cons between them?
I am having difficulty deciding between the two.

2. http://www.richardsonsrv.com/Search-...-295BHDS.aspx\


Thanks!

That '08 looks very clean...to save $14k it would be my choice.

I would want to ensure the roof is still in good shape, an '08 has seen 7 years of sun already, but if it was properly cared for there is still lots of life left.

I don't like the JayCube for the bottom bunk, but that it just me. For $14k, if I needed to I could come up with an alternative.

Full disclosure, I don't finance, so the price is really driving my response.

If you have kids you can't beat the bunks. Having to set up beds on a fold down table or couch every night and put it away every morning gets old real fast.

Not to mention if the parents get a proper bed it's only fair the kids do too.

Yes, the wife has determined that bunks are in order for the reasons shared here. you are correct....Setting up/breaking everyday will get old quick.


The J-cube is OK, but the bunks on the 29.5 are nice and wide! Although there is no door in either unit. the 29.5 does have a TV bracket on the forward wall. The steps next to the bunks make getting into either bottom or top bunk quite easy.
Wish it would have come with an 8cu ft refer and an extra AC unit in bedroom. It gets hot here in SoCal and the Southwest!


To get an 8cu ft refer and 2nd AC, I would have to order new. This will cost me an extra $4K


Now, just trying to determine new or used!!!

I had a tough decision as you are,I wanted a 5er but couldn't find one in my price range,So I went with the 2015 Eagle Premier 314BHDS,my 2 kids love it,one a teen and the other 4 yrs old.They have plenty of room to chill out and hang with friends and be out of my wife and I's way,I like the J cube personally,you can fold it up when not in use and not take the sheets off,or just open 1 for them to hang out on and watch t.v
