White Hawk 28dsbh might be the one!

Ok so our truck can tow 7500lbs safely for sure. we have a deal on a 2014 right now. heres my question. We opted to have a 2 door for the bathroom and gave up the bunkhouse. our kids are 10 and 7. this model has 2 double beds in the corner with a curtain. I dont know where I am going to put their clothes and stuff.....I was thinking rubbermaid totes that can stay on the bed. For those with kids and no bunkhouse where do you put everything???

Leave some of theirut stuff at home, they don't need it. Bring your stuff! We were worried at first about storage in our new WH but a little here and a little there [and totes like you said] and everything found a home. We purged a bunch of stuff we had accumulated in our 2006 TT. If you don't use it almost every trip, leave it at home. Each kid, one duffle. Problem solved.

When our kids were little they were each given a shoe box and told their all their 'stuff' outside of clothes and tolietries had to fit in there. They were each given a tote to pack their clothes in. It was such an adventure and today they are 19 and 21 and each still have their shoe boxes filled with memories of camping trips - glittery rocks, photos, uno cards, journal, etc.

You could give each kid one shelf of the wardrobe/pantry next to the fridge. The bottom section has a separate door with 2 shelves behind it. Otherwise a duffel bag it is. Our son uses a duffel bag even though we have the single top bunk with wardrobe. He sleeps on the double bottom bunk. We use the wardrobe for towels etc.

This is the primary reason we are looking to upgrade into a proper bunkhouse floor plan. We have been using either duffle bags or plastic totes in conjunction with the tiny wardrobe closet in the single over double layout. Because of the lack of storage space for our kids it's a constant mess back there. This drives me crazy, we need a little more room for organization.

Great floor plan! That is what we looked at as well.

I gotta ask.....what tow vehicle do u have that has the 7500lb tow rating? Reason I ask is mine has 8500lb rating and we couldn't get the 28dsbh due to payload issues

we have a 2003 dodge ram 1500. I called dodge with the vin number to double check. they actually told me 7800lbs. I think they underestimate numbers also because people are always going to push it.
