For "50" owners ONLY (RB-50, EB-50)

This super-elite thread is for owners and fans of "Nature's Perfect Camping Layout, Hands-Down," the RB-50 or EB-50 layout. Let's use this thread to discuss how superior our layout is to all others, and of course how superior we are, for having chosen this great layout, and to share amongst our superior selves those tips and techniques for getting the most enjoyment out of our superior layout. Let's post plenty of pictures of "50" models to make all the other owners jealous.

Please no sniping from owners of lesser configurations. Thanks in advance!






(Hey, get your panties unbunched, it's all in fun)

I like the 50 because at bedtime, it's like having bunkbeds. I never got to sleep in bunkbeds as a kid, I was totally deprived of this fun, and so now's my time to enjoy it. What's cool is the little access hole in the top bunk at the rear, for the penthouse latch. You can poke your hand up there and startle the person in the top bunk. They never expect that. Kids love it.

You just can't go wrong with the last choice in the poll...

Nah, the RB 50 is cramped. I'm sure I'd suffer if I had to live in one.

That is so funny and so true. When my sister came with me on part of my big road trip I startled her so much I almost died laughing. I was on the top bunk and after the lights were out I put my face in the opening and yelled boo. She screamed so loud it reminded me of when we were kids.

She got me back the next night by waiting until I was sleeping and then poked her hand up there.

The beauty of the 50.

Well I do not mean to burst your bubble but I can pull the same trick without a "50" and It is just as fun.

When my husband and I were claiming territory, he chose upstairs which was great because when the snoring starts I just poke him through that little hole or push up on the mattress platform which wakes him. If our places were reversed, I'd be helpless. On nights we are on the same level, it doesn't matter.
But as to the glories of the "50", we love the living room feeling, the space, the clear view out the passenger side when driving and describing it as the VW camper, all grown up. It doesn't hurt that we're both 5'4"!
