Dont worry about all the other's that mite come with you , just plan on who will come all the time , When I bought my class A with bunk's I thought a bunch of my family would come , but they never did , I did not buy the bunks for them but I thought they would come every once in a while and I would have plenty of room , they where always a no show . so the 3 of us plus my dogs had plenty of room

just checking - that 40" isn't for the BHBE is it? can't be? that's just a little over 3 ft and I am pretty sure they were wider than that? I thought for sure we could fit an adult and child in the double bunks, but at 40" I'm not so sure, that's less that 24" per person, they HAVE to be wider than that - right? or are you talking about the quad ones? (the 4 single bunks)

thank you!

I think your going to find the double bunks are at least 50" wide, sorry its not here in my yard to measure quick. Standard double is 54"x70", and ours (while a different model but similar and beds look identically sized) do fill out a standard double sheet set pretty well.

Jayco lists the 32 BHDS bunks as 30x74/300lb rating (slide bunk) and 38x74/600lb rating (over outdoor kitchen), and the J cube futon at 74x74. Jayco didn't list the bed size on the '16 Jay Flights, but do list them for the '15 or '14 (can't remember which it was I found them listed).

Also consider adding the optional hide-a-bed for a larger bed if the couch is needed.

It is the '15 models that list the bed size. Jayco list the 28 BHBE bunks as 48x80.

I'm sorry. Too much hard cider and camp fire smoke. :-) Yes, they are a bit over 48" wide, not 40. So 48x80. I'd still question the idea of two people in them however. While they are wider than a normal twin, it would be very cozy. I'd really spec the 28BHBE as a 6 person unit (1 per bunk, 1 on the table bed, 1 on the couch, and two up front.) You could put two on the hide a bed sofa (something else we ordered on ours and would suggest), but that would only mean 7.

Again, sorry on the mix-up.

do you think one adult and a young child (6-7 years) could fit on a bunk? or a 9 and 11 year old on a bunk? we kind of planned if they were in their sleeping bags they could fit 2 to a bunk. as they get older it won't work and we'll have to bring a tent for them, but we are hoping it works in the mean time

My brother and his wife both slept in the bottom bunk of our 28BHBE. He's not large, but he's tall. She's not small, but she's not "large" either. They're both smaller than me and my wife. There were no complaints other than it gets stuffy in that bottom bunk.

My wife and I have been in that bottom bunk with my 10 MO son a couple times. And while I don't think I would want to spend the whole night in there with the 3 of us, we did all fit in there together, and like I said, DW and I are NOT small people. Our tent footprint is smaller than that bunk, and DW and I used to camp in our bags in there.

So I think 2 reasonably sized individuals in sleeping bags should fit fine, just get some way to get air in there, it does get stuffy. I just bought a clip-on fan, but won't be able to test fit it until some time in September.

I asked my boys their thoughts, and they both said its doable, but would be cozy. I agree with that. I know Jayco would spec two people per bunk, but I don't think that would be ideal. Honestly, if that's your regular need, I would think the 32BHDS might meet your need better, or the 29QBS. We looked at that one too, but the bathroom was a bit smaller than we liked. The other option you'd always have is to put an air mattress on the floor by the table/bed. The floorspace is plentiful, so you could do that if necessary for a person or two. I don't know how many people you'll have each trip regularly, but that might be an option if you only needed the extra space on occasion.

The double bunks in our trailer easily fits an adult and a child. I crawled in with my 8 year old one time just to see how much room he had.

We also bought a clip on fan for our son....who is always hot. He has had no problems on this trip.

One thing to factor related to Bob's experience...if my wife and I wanted to sleep on the bunk, we could without an issue. We like each other. :-) But my two boys, as brothers....might not experience the same "comfort" being so close. They get along good, but they're siblings...not a married couple. Just sayin.
