Tour Our Bunkhouse RV! Grand Design 312BHTS | Five 2 Go Vlog Ep. 15

It’s time for the grand tour! We’ve opened our door wide open for you, so come on in and see where and how we live full-time in our RV with three kids and a dog. Our home on wheels is a 2018 Grand Design Reflection 312BHTS – a fabulous triple slide travel trailer that has a full bunkhouse with a crib, a huge kitchen island, leather recliners, a full-size queen bed, and it even has a washer/dryer combo unit! We have been living in our RV for three months and this model has all the space and storage we need – and then some.

    Thank you for your post. I’m buying the same travel trailer for my family and this gave me some good ideas how to set it up. Looking very forward to camping next year. What vehicle are you using to tow it?

      We tow our rig with a 2013 Ford F350 with the 6.7L Powerstroke Turbodiesel. It has 400hp and 800lb-ft of torque and pulls like a champ. I get about 11mpg towing and 18 or so unhooked.

      Just to let you know, we’re publishing to our YouTube channel every day now and including a bunch more day-in-the-life content around the rig, so make sure to subscribe and you’ll see a TON more about the 312. We love this RV!

    I talked my husband into buying this exact same rig because of your videos. I have a couple of questions for you, 1) do you have any issues with condensation inside the slide outs? We took ours to Cherokee, NC this last weekend and had condensation so bad that the walls were slick (my sons pillows were wet!) and there were droplets at the ceiling. 2) Is the AC unit in your master a heat pump as well as AC? We have conflicting information on that and need to know if something needs to be fixed or not. Other than those 2 things, we LOVE the Reflection. So, thank you for showing yours. Wishing y’all safe travels and a Merry Christmas!

      Condensation is always a struggle, in any RV. We have a multi-probe thermometer in our rig that also tells us the humidity, and as long as we can keep it well under 50% we’re pretty happy. We don’t have a dehumidifier, but running the AC is a great way to remove humidity. (Fun fact: the modern air conditioner was originally made to remove humidity from the air, the fact that it made buildings cold was just a useful byproduct!)

      This time of year is tricky though because it’s too cold to run the AC most of the time. Using “dry” heat will help – electric space heaters and the like. The fireplace in this rig is our primary heat source until it gets below 40 outside. When you run propane heat, it’s actually pumping “wet” air into your rig. I think I read somewhere that a pound of burned LP produces a gallon of water! My best recommendation is to keep the air warm, dry, and most importantly, moving. We only really get condensation on the windows, but that’s mostly because the windows get SO cold, and there’s not much you can do about that other than towel it off in the morning.

      As for your second question, we only have the single AC unit in our rig. I haven’t heard of RV AC units being both an AC and a heat pump, but I haven’t read too much about them either.

      We’re so happy you like your 312! It’s such an awesome RV and has fit our family perfectly. We hope to see you on the road! Safe travels!
