29BHS... hopefully

We're going in today to see if we can hammer out a deal on a new 29BHS! I think it's going to be an ideal floorplan for our family. We also really liked the 32BHDS but ultimately decided it's just going to be a bit too big at a full 5 ft longer than our current trailer. Washington has a pretty good state parks system and we'd have to miss out on a few of our favorite spots with the bigger trailer.

Hoping for the best- this might be our last chance at a 2012 or we'll have to wait until the new ones come in. I did get an RV direct quote to hopefully help out with the negotiating (and really tempting to take a road trip to pick one up).

That is the same floor plan we have. You will love it.. the L shaped kitchen makes it feel more like a little cottage than a trailer.

We have the 29bhs G2. Like Lady Wendolyn, we love the L-shaped kitchen counters. We had a tt prior to this which had NO counter space, so it turned out to be a selling point and a plus for us. We also drove back east to pick ours up. At the time, the $$ saved not picking it up in Calif actually paid for most of three week trip to go get (keep in mind we actually had the time to do this extended trip though LOL)

Same model that we have and we simply love the layout EXECPT the location/height of the TV. However I will be posting up a great mod to solve the issue soon.

Agree..... for us the G2 came with the tv already mounted but when watching from the couch or far end of dinette, we have to crank our heads;pain in the neck. If we were to lower the tv though, anyone sitting on the bunk side of the dinette would have to be carefull not to bump their head, or worse yet, the tv speaker would be in their ear. If camping for a weekend this shouldn't be a problem if you are active outside of the tt, but often times we travel long distances for long periods of time.

Look forward to hearing about your mod!

We installed our tv ourselves and purchased a swivel mount bracket which allows out tv to tilt down and swing sideways about faces the sofa. This works well and I found a tiny fold up chair that stores behind the sofa which is great to place next to the stove for movie watching...

LadyW, not sure if you have posted any pics of the TV mount but I`m interested to see one if possible. I`ve been trying to think of a TV solution for the living room. The articulating mount I have in the bedroom only swings out, not down. The one in the living room would have to be above head level (while seated at the dinette) while not in use as healthi indicated, but be lower when viewing to avoid "giraffe neck syndrome"

Deal is looking good so far! It's actually a 29QBH (too many numbers/letters scrambled in my head from all the trailers)! We didn't get the technology package so we'll be looking for an LCD TV/bracket to use if anyone has any good setups. This trailer has the wall/shelving between the front bedroom and kitchen/dining area, so it seems like it should be easy to get something there. I'm hoping to get something that "swings out" toward the couch and still locks into place secure enough for travel.

Towed her home today! We're super excited to break in Jayco #2 for many more years of camping memories!

The trailer tows really nice and I can't say I noticed much of a difference between the two trailers even though the 29QBH is around 2000 lbs heavier across the board. It looks great but huge just due to being much taller and bulkier than the 'feather. The interior seems to have a bit less storage, but the exterior has WAY more, so it should balance out!
