Just picked up our 2013 Bullet 298BHS!

Here she is! We had a fantastic experience at Lakeshore RV this weekend. They were extremely patient with us as newbies. It was a little windy on the trip home to Chicagoland, but the sway control kept us on the road with no problems! Can't wait until our first official trip with the kids in a few weeks!

Thanks everyone!

We're planning on staying somewhat close to home this summer, so mostly Wisconsin, and taking advantage of the state parks as much as possible.

We've got Lake Kegonsa State Park (near Madison), Point Beach State Park, and Wagon Trail (in Door County, WI) all booked. We'll probably do a weekend in Wisconsin Dells (we like Stand Rock Campground).

And there is Blackwell county park about 20 minutes from home that we plan on doing several weekends. DH took up archery this winter, and Blackwell just did a major renovation of their archery range - so we can combine an overnight camp stay with that.

We're HUGE Disney fans, so we'll eventually gear up for the 20+ hour trip south, maybe next year. The kids are still pretty little (2 and 6) so we're trying to keep our driving down to about 5-8 hours for now.

I have a 2013 294BHS. I think everything is the same except the back bunk area.

Tell me, do you have two drawers behind a cabinet door just to the left of the stove? Does it seem like a waste of space? I moved both drawers to the top of the space and now have half a cabinet opened up for other stuff.

Also, do you have a dumb cabinet door under the oven that opens upward? I reversed mine (as soon as I got home) its much more useable.

Our 2 drawers inside the cabinet are just to the right of the stove - I haven't looked at them close enough to see if we can move them, but yes, it seems like a lot of space for 2 drawers. I was able to fit a couple boxes of ziplock bags and garbage bags underneath the drawers though.

Yes, I have that cabinet door under the oven. Not sure what I'm going to use that for??

Where do you stow your shoes? When we were looking at the Jayco trailers - they had a spot under the entertainment center that was an open cubbie that was for shoes - seemed practical. Not sure where we'll have everyone dump their shoes when they come in. Guess we have some logistics to work out on our first trip!

Thanks Mike! We were able to say hello to Cheryl for you - she did our paperwork. She definitely remembered you! Said to say hi!

Thanks again for all your info on the overnight at Lakeshore RV - just as you described it!

I moved them up to the top and move the catch under them. I had to pull the framing that holds the back of the drawer slides out (1 screw) and put in 2 chunks of scrap 3/4 ply that I had lying around that now run all the way to the top of the cabinet. I'd love to order two more drawers with slides from Keystone to complete the cabinet, but that seems impossible.

After I flipped the door over, I use it for baking pans, muffin tin, etc.

The dinette booth seat as you enter the door has tons of unused space. It has a sticker under the seat cushion saying its not storage, but if you pull the two screws you will see it is half empty (the water heat sits on one side). One could easily make a nice storage area in their for whatever just by using some paneling or cheap luan to cordon off a section.
