Thank you, here are our 6 sleeper details

Have heard there is NO privacy with bunks.

First up is put the boys outside in a tent. For the girls a coach with a cab over bunk should work but check the weight limits. Puts them 30 feet away from the master bedroom. In two years when the son is 18 and off at school the girls can then move outside and into the tent.

My problem with Class A bunkhouses is that they always seem to put the bunks right next to the bedroom. Sleeping 6 in a MH with any sort of privacy is going to be next to impossible. Technically you can do it in a variety of configurations, but privacy...The other consideration is the number of seat belts for all these passengers. Have you looked at FW's?

I always thought the salon bunk in the Sportscoach 40rb was pretty neat. It's like a 12 foot bunk that 2 people could sleep end to end and the dinette and sofa still offer sleeping below. When the salon bunk is up, you can't even tell it's there.

We have a very similar situation, with our 15yo boy and 13yo daughter who more often than not want to bring friends camping with us. The boy(s) do sometimes sleep outside in a tent, but when the weather is bad enough they sleep inside. The boy(s) usually end sharing the overhead bunk, and the girl(s) usually end up on the pull-out sofa, which allows all of them to hang out and do what kids do. The wife and I pull the "privacy" door shut on our bedroom and it works out just fine for us. The bunks are very rarely used for sleeping, more often than not they are just a great place for storage bins and the friends duffel bags.

You can always tow a pop-up camper behind you for those occasions when there are extra guests.

Everyone worries where people are going to sleep. That's the LEAST of your problems. Kids, esp teenagers can sleep anywhere. That many people in an RV will tax the bathroom a lot, the kitchen a lot and the TV a lot...just my 2 cents....Dennis

Double ditto. Teens grow up and move away before the last payment is made on a rig that size. Tents are great for the extra people. I saw one Class A pulling a pop-up camper but don't know how legal that was. Still though it's a great idea. Pop-ups can be sold and the main mh kept.

That's why we never bought a class A. We didn't like the lack of separation between us and the kids.

Lots of families fulltime in class A RVs with 1-6 kids, so you can make it work. But truly, the bunks are right outside of the master bedroom in almost all of the floorplans.

We did tour a RV that had "salon bunks" that lowered down the slide in the living room where the dinette and couch were. We nixxed it because it didn't give the kids their own "room" but we were looking for something to live in. That coupled with a pull out couch and a cab over bunk could get you to the number of beds you need plus some separation between you and the kids.

A cab-over bunk and sleeping couches may work for your group. A tent is also a good option.

Otherwise, I'm failing at finding the model # but acquaintances had a class A that had a real bunk room at the very back of the RV. I want to say you even may have gone through the bathroom before getting to it. So it was something like master bedroom, bathroom, bunkroom. But unfortunately I'm failing at finding the make/model right now.
