Floor Plan for small family, one-year full-time
« on: February 04, 2015, 11:20:14 AM »
We're planning a year trip, my wife, I and our then to be seven year old son.

We're looking at two fifthwheels, one, the Wildcat 334BH has a bathroom and a half and a large bunk room in the rear, but not much of a living room. We would probably remove the couch in that bunkroom and put a desk there for home schooling (and maybe some of my work?).

The other, a Sandpiper 371REBH has a small bunkroom toward the front and only one bathroom and the rear functions as a more genuine living room with lots of light.

Here's my concern or question. Would it be better to have a large second bedroom that either my boy or one of us could retreat to for privacy or have a nice airy living room with just a small bedroom for my boy that he probably wouldn't do much in other than sleep?

Thoughts? Advice? I know this is very individual, but I'd still like to hear what you think.

F350, Turbo-Diesel, DRW
Sandpiper 371 REBH

We currently full time in a Montana Mountaineer 356TBF, its a bunk house. We have removed the couch and replace with desk to create a sewing/craft room. You can see it on our blog under modifications (blog link in profile). It has two bathrooms, which works for us really well. It also has a lot of storage.
