Jayco Eagle HT 30.5MBOK

We are considering a 2017 Jayco Eagle HT 30.5 MBOK. Can anyone comment on the air and heat conditions on the middle bunk room? With the room being able to be closed off, we are curious if it gets too hot or cold in that room. We would also value any other comments on the 30.5 MBOK. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I can't speak for the floor plan, but be sure to get the 2nd AC unit!!

I have a 2016 355MBQS which is similar in layout, just a little longer.
As stated, get the 2nd AC unit and then check all vents for a good seal so the cold air isn't blowing in the roof cavity.
The bunk room has one AC vent and one heat vent.
We find the one heat vent to do the job.
The one AC vent works, but with the door closed, it will get a little hotter than the rest of the unit.
I put a vent in above the door at the roof line to allow more airflow with the door closed. That has helped a lot.

We're considering one too. Auto leveling, 16" tires and upgraded A/Cs(w/50A) are definitely on the list of options we would get.
rsday75, you put in another A/C vent, or roof vent?

I put a vent in above the door to the room, through the wall to allow ventilation when the bunk room door is closed. Works great.

I do have the second AC, and the insulated windows.

Sitting at James Island in Charleston right now. 92 degrees on the thermometer, and the ACs are able to cycle. 72-73 inside.

Do you have a picture of it? I assume it's working like a louvered door installed at the top/bottom of a stairwell.

It might not matter for us. We routinely freeze the kids out.

I'll be interested to know how you like it. It was my second choice behind the 29.5BHOK that we bought.

Weíre also looking at the 29.5BHOK and 30.5MBOK. Due to the smaller size, we are leaning towards the 29.5. I also donít know how to feel about how the bunks are layed out on the 30.5. It seems like there isnít much space.

We like that one too, but there isn't enough living space for the 7 of us. I know you are camping, but we've been trapped inside on snow/rain days before. We like the 29.5FBDS(let the kids have the short ceiling), but being locked in one end of the rig while a teenage girl is in the shower is a non-starter.
