Glad you are happy with the floor plan. Good thing after investing a lot of money. Congratulations on your maiden voyage.

Robin,

One more question...
We are seriously thinking of getting this unit very soon...like next week
Anyway, do you feel there's enough storage in the bunk room? We have 3 kids and there seems to be a lack of storage for them. I'm thinking of maybe adding some drawers in the knee space of the desk

First trip in our 2016 North Point 377 rlbh

We full time. We only have one 8yr old son, but 3 kids shouldn't be an issue. The loft has ample space.

Couple things we did. Bought a second ottoman at Target ($59.00). That gave us two storage ottomans.

The ottoman that came with it fits under the desk in the bunk room even with the slide in. And can slide out and be used as a place to sit at the desk.

Closet is a bit tricky. I'm working on the divider to make the closet a very narrow 5.5inch coat closet on the outside by the door and a regular non pass through closet for the bunk room.
For now we use some black storage drawers and basket to help organize it.

Here is some pictures of his room. You can store a fair amount of stuff under the couch in the bunk room as well. The table and legs fit on one side of the couch by the wall. We also have a nice storage tote in there to store his dogs stuff and some other things. The couch still folds out with the ottoman and the storage tote in there.

IKEA hooks. They fold up when not in use. Great for electronic items.

Thanks hoojs12840! I like the ottoman idea. I too am trying to figure out how to make 2 separate closets out of the one. I'm not concerned about the sleeping space. Really just the storage of all the kids stuff. We are coming from a rear bunk house with LOTS of storage. Guess they'll just need to leave some stuff home!

Thanks again for the great ideas. Is your interior mahogany? That's what comes with the one we are about to get. Like it!

Yes, mahogany. All I'm doing for the closet is buying a sheet of furniture grade luan cutting it to fit in the closet, staining it to match and adding 3 hooks. I will be cutting the shelves down 3 inches and moving the shelf brackets in a few inches and reinstalling them.

One thing we figured out that I was worried about was storage. Our son had a entire rear bunk room to himself (outside of the dog) between the room and the loft this has as much room.

The front basement storage is bigger than it looks. We thought our other one was big, but we have 8 good size storage tubs in the basement along with our chairs, grill, tool chest, and all the other camping gear. Since we full time we keep some of his stuff in there and rotate it out as he plays with it.

The couch in the living room has lots of storage as well.

What type of hooks do you plan on using? The screws would need to be really short to not go thru the thin luan

We do not have kids in our bunkhouse, however, my husband's grandfather lives with us and that is his room. The idea of the ottoman to store under the desk area is a great idea. The closet has quite a bit of shelving storage, however, he uses the hanigng area which cuts into the shelving space. I would imagine you would not have too many hanging items for kids for so the shelves should work out nicely for your needs. The problem we have is that because he is elderly, he likes to leave his bed made out for naps during the day. That blocks the desk storage for the most part. I think as long as you are not leaving the bed out all of the time there should be ample strorage for your kids. We also have utilized some of the bathroom shelves for storage for him to make up for blocking the desk storage with the bed. We are not full timers so we had plenty of shelves to dedicate to some of his belongings that he could easily access. Hope this helps. I think you will be very happy with this floor plan with kids.

This is one of the rig's we've narrowed it down to when we possibly start full timing, again, later this year. My only concern is the length of the bunks. My kids aren't short and they're growing fast. My daughter got on the top bunk and stretched out, which made me think twice about, what if in 4-5 years. Probably won't work. Right off the bat, I'd have to ditch the couch and build a lower bunk with cabinet storage underneath. This is how previous rig was. I would also ditch the upper bunk and make it deeper, again, as the other rig was.


The other floor plan is the NP 375. Now the last rig we full timed in was the Cedar Creek version of the 375, so we know it works, and works well. We let the kids explore both of these rigs. Keep in mind the oldest has been in 7 different rigs in her life, and the 4 year old in 5. They know what works. When I let them vote, they both chose the 375 as they wanted to all be together like before.


That said though, I like the living area of the 377 way better. Tough decision. I'm scared my kids would grow out of the bunk length quick.
