The Dutchmen 295BHGS Was a Great Suprise

September 27, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 185

I was recently at an open house in Elkhart Indiana, which is the RV capital of the world. There was every RV from the most basic tent camper to the most luxurious motor homes. It is surprising how far recreational vehicles have surged in popularity over the past twenty years. When I started looking at RVs many years ago, there were no slide-outs, and awnings, air-conditioners, TV antennas, and microwaves were options that were available but never on a stock unit. As I walked through the units, at this open house you couldn't find a camper without any of those things.

I was trying to find a diamond in the rough. What I mean by that, was I was to find a camper that would be the most usable for a family, yet also an exceptional value. I found this, not easily, because of the sheer number of units that were there to look at, but I found one to stand out in the crowd.

As I prepared to step in to this travel trailer, I noticed it had a larger awning than other units.To make sure I wasn't imagining things I measured the awning and found that it was 16 feet. I went to a couple of others and found awnings twelve and thirteen feet on similar units. This travel trailer was not skimping on one of the most striking features on the exterior of the RV.

As I stepped into the unit, I looked to my left and to my right as I always do to see if there is linoleum front to rear. I do this because with all the latest improvements, some units I have found to have too much carpet. This travel trailer had carpet at the dining area and sofa, but the rest of the RV was linoleum. I find having linoleum extremely helpful. Linoleum makes yourjob easy to keep the unit clean. Sometimes it rains on a camping trip. Coming from the outside, with wet and muddy shoes, are less worrisome when you are not stepping in on the carpet.

I was amazed at how roomy this camper felt and at the same time could sleep nine people. Two people in the Queen bed in the master bedroom. Walking around this bed to make it was neat too! Three individuals could sleep in the bunks mighty comfortably. Two kids or two close friends could sleep in the dining table bed, and two on the sofa bed. I think it noteworthy enough to repeat this part. The two that would sleep in the dining table bed or the two at the sofa would either have to be little or close friends. The slide- out played a significant role in how roomy this camper felt for a smaller travel trailer that slept this many people.

Another thing I found fascinating was that the television could be viewed in the living area, and simply by pulling a single pin, it turned, and could be viewed from the master bedroom. While I thought this was a remarkable idea, it did, however, making TV viewing impossible, by those in the living room.

I found this unit to have adequate storage both inside and out. It had a 6 gallon water heater that had an electronic ignition, also an outside shower. Both of these features I found to be unique to other campers in its price range. This RV did not have an optional rack on the rear bumperbut saw it on other units. This rack could handle things like campfire wood, generator, bikes, coolers, and many other oversized items that we often struggle to find a place for.

So, I would just like to say it was gratifying finding what I found in this travel trailer for its size and price range. There are many surprises, but I assure you this one was an enjoyable one. I have seen a lot of travel trailers. This one will surely surprise you too.
