We liked the 30.5MBOK, but it doesn't look like it has a pantry. We have to have food storage. We really like the idea of a middle bunk area. Any of you have models that fit this criteria and you would recommend? The pinnacle and north point are probably to $$$ for us, and we aren't opposed to used. Thanks you in advance for any help and information.
I have the Eagle 355MBQS, it has an outdoor kitchen, a pantry and the mid bunk.
The outdoor kitchen has a grill that is more likely to burn down your camper than cook anything (many posts on here about this), I pulled it out and made it into a drawer (many posts on here about that too). I carry a Weber Q grill in the basement that I converted to run off the camper propane with a quick disconnect hose. There is a refrigerator in the outdoor kitchen if you are somewhere with hook ups.
The mid bunk has a love seat that turns into a twin bed and there is a fold down bunk above it but I removed the fold down bunk in ours because it is only about five feet long and that is too short for my kids. There is also a sleep loft above the mid bunk room that is pretty big and the living room sofa pulls out into a queen size bed.
I use the mid bunk as an office and love the layout. There are two kinds of mid bunk layouts, one has a door from the kitchen into the mid bunk and the other has the door off the hallway. I think the door from the kitchen takes away way too much kitchen space, the door off the hallway is much better in my opinion.
