That's some serious camping already. Very nice!! Between now and the end of June, we have 20 nights already booked at various campgrounds. Many local campgrounds book up fast, so we started making reservations before we even had a camper. This also includes a 10 day stint at the Outer Banks. My wife and I usually use a tent for this (almost) annual trip, but with our little one now, we thought we might give her a few more amenities.

I also wish (sometimes) that my 26BH had a slide for some extra width, but it works well without one, and not having to be concerned with slide problems is a plus. And I believe that a single box on wheels is sturdier than one with a big, floating slide going through a big hole in the side of the structure.

As for storing things, I use my bunk area exclusively for storage. I've thought about completely removing my microwave, since I rarely use it, and putting in a couple of shelves, and a door in front. That would be a huge addition to cabinet space. And there's also the narrow, unused space next to the radio. If it were opened up it would make a nice little cubbyhole for odds and ends.

Congrats! We have had our 26BH for a season and a half now, and we love it! We didn't get the slide for the same reasons others have mentioned - we don't regret our decision a bit. Ready to get our out and get going!

Well, we just broke it out this weekend for our first trip. We stayed at a small CG less than 30 minutes in case we forgot anything. Everything went quite well and the family loved it.

Congratulations! That is a nice unit. That unit us how we got introduced to Jayco. A family we camped with bought one for the bunks with their 4 kids. We bought the same one but with the slide and love it.

From a tent to glamping. You will be glad you have the bathroom and tub shower with the little one. They fit the tub perfectly and nothing beats a warm bath and cleanup after a day playing in the dirt.

This is exactly what happened to us. Was all set to buy the 264BHW locally until they p!$$ed me off so we drove over 500 km to buy the 26BH instead this passed weekend.
