32bhds questions

I am still thinking about buying a 32bhds trailer and see thst some changes were made for 2013. I have only seen these changes in pictures so far. I have noticed that the backsplash behind the sink appears to be mosaic tile or is it wallpaper ?

Also for those that have small kids do you use anything on the upper bunks to make sure they don`t roll off the bed ? If so what ? Thanks

Some very nice changes to the 2013...the backsplash is a different design (yes, just wall paper), the wall paper in the slideouts is darker, the entertainment center is much, much nicer (the tv swivels into the bedroom), dark tinted windows, the power tongue jack is black in color (not a big deal but at least it won't wade as a white one will). It's a great TT for a family (I have 3 kids aged 9, 6 and 5). As far as the top bunks go, my oldest sleeps on the bunk that is above the outdoor kitchen/storage area and the other 2 sleep on the bottom "J Cube" foldout. I have heard of others getting the bed rails that slip in under the mattress (Walmart, I believe).

I promise you won't be disappointed if you choose a 32BHDS!

Thanks for the reply. Sounds good. What do you tow with ? Do you have anyt issues with sway or any other towing problems?

I have the 2012. It is a great family trailer. We enjoy the outdoor kitchen (a Margaritaville Margarita Maker on the counter) makes it a great outdoor party spot. I would like to change the faucet to a higher faucet to get pitchers under.

Although my youngest are 11 and 13, we have the plastic bed rails that slip in under the mattress. The oldest sleep on the J-cube. I really like the J-cube because there have been times where we had four smaller kids sleep on it, and one each in the bunk.

We towed it last year with a 2500 Yukon XL with the 8.1 engine. This year is a 2500 Silverado CC.

I tow mine with a chev 2500 duramax. It is parked at a lake on a seasonal site...one trip up, one trip home. It towed fine but you definitely know it's back there!

Thanks for the reply . How did your Yukon XL handle the trailer ? We have a yukon xl 1500 and like the vehicle but I know it definitely would not handle that heavy of trailer but might consider upgrading if yours seem to handle it ok. I also have F250 CC diesel that can tow it but just don`t have the passenger room that is sometimes needed. Thanks

I tow my 32BHDS with an Excursion. Went to Florida from NY and had a real nice tow experience with my Reese dual cam.

We also have a 2012 32bhds and LOVE it and the outdoor kitchen! Love the Margarita maker idea! The kids would love that w/o the alcohol, of course! We pull ours with a 2008 Ford F250 4x4 crew cab long bed and it does very well.

You will want a 3/4 ton to pull the trailer as it is a beast.

It is amazing the "slushes" that can be made with the margarita maker. The Margaritaville maker is super. The ice shaving is fantastic, leaving no larger ice chunks. We have made a variety of flavors.
