Man I know how you feel! We put 2 kids through college. The last one, my son, was on the "5 year" plan! When he finally graduated, the DW said it was good to get him "off the payroll"!

Turning the Tables

On the plus side, the layout of the B looks better for indoor conversation and TV watching during inclement weather...the dinette and sofa make somewhat of a wrap-around.
I own an X23b. The only time we have to climb over the table is if we have somebody sleeping on the sofa with it pulled out. Otherwise, we just turn the table sideways leaving easy access to the front bed. As for inclement weather conversations...yes. The floorplan of the B is outstanding.

I should add that the table has one corner cut off, so using it "sideways" still leaves room to maneuver around the galley. In fact, the only time we turn the table into it's "normal" position is if we have guests over for an inside meal.

We really like the HTT idea because it brings some of the openness feeling of a PUP, but may have to reconsider a TT.
You never know... we bought this to pull with our Explorer beginning of the season (biggest we could get for TV) and then I bought an F150. Now I want one bigger with a bunk house. By the way we are going to camp next year in Ohio to goto Cedar Point. Any Recommendations? Maybe after the trip I can leave the TT with you!! HAHA I think the wife would kill me if I spent any more money.

Although we live just an hour away, we've "camped" at Cedar Point 4 times. The first time we stayed in the cottages called Lighthouse Point. Fantastic. Then we bought our PUP and stayed in Camper Village the next 2 summers, two visits last summer. Camper Village is great in that it's close to Soak City and an entrance to Cedar Point. The main benefit is the Early Ride Time that allows those staying on the grounds to get into the park at 9am. My daughters and I arrive at the gate at 8:15am to be first in line, we sprint to the Maverick, then to Millenium, then Raptor, and if we're lucky Magnum before the general public gets in.

If you don't stay on the grounds, I recommend East Harbor State Park on Marblehead. Reserve early to get a shaded site. Many of the electrical sites are very sunny.

Now there's a plan. I'm hoping (praying) to go back to Cedar Point next summer. Am scheduled for lower back surgery in October and fear I've ridden my last coaster.

Thanks for the response about Cedar Point. I wish you the best of luck with your surgery and a speedy recovery!

An FYI... you got me thinking and since I've upgraded my TV and think I would like to upgrade my TT too now. To one with a bunk house, so it for SALE. If anyones interested, let me know and I can send you pictures, but here is the listing.

Thanks for taking a look! Jay

I like the Eagles, 314 BDS & 324 BTS but think those may be a little too heavy for my TV. Also like the White Hawk's 28 DSBH,29 SQB, and 31 DSLB. We want a bunk room, like the idea of access to bathroom from outside, and an outdoor kitchen would be bonus if we could get that too. This all depends on if we can sell the 23j 1st. I hear others saying theres sold quick. Where going away columbus day weekend so hopefully not b4 then but if it does I guess we'll just have to deal.

Sounds like a plan. Good luck with the sale and hunt for the new BH.
