Lots of space, plenty of amenities and a reasonable price – you can’t ask for much more in an RV. And that’s just what you get in the 2011 SunnyBrook Bristol Bay Fifth Wheel Trailer. Offering luxury without the expensive price tag you’d assume would go along with it, the Bristol Bay gives you and your family comfort on the go.

Finding the right floorplan that suits your lifestyle won’t be a problem – the Bristol Bay comes in eight impressive models. We’ll be exploring the 3510 RE, the largest floorplan in the series. It measures in with an exterior length of 36’11”, an exterior height of 12’4”, an exterior width of 8’3”, an interior height of 7’ and a hitch height of 48”. It sleeps four, but it has the option of sleeping six.

In order for the Bristol Bay to tow easier while still retaining its good looks, this SunnyBrook fifth wheel trailer is built using a strong aluminum Superstructure. This ultra-light structure offers a smoother ride, less fuel consumption and a stronger body. The Superstructure is screwed and glued together, so it can stand up to stress. Plus, its R-7 insulated floor with 5/8” tongue and groove exterior grade plywood on aluminum floor joists is standard. A solid steel I-beam frame, full walk-on and rubber roof and True Gelcoat molded end caps and sidewalls are built to stand the test of time.  Its heated and enclosed holding tanks holds 56 gallons of fresh water, and it also includes ducted floor heat and a Dometic 15.0 BTU air conditioner. To ensure that its cabinetry is strong and sturdy, SunnyBrook has used real lumber core cabinet stiles that are screwed, as well as real poplar hardwood cabinet cleating.

Helping to keep the Bristol Bay easy to maintain, it comes equipped with beefy, six-lug hubs and Super Lube axles. On the drive to your destination, MOR/ryde CRE suspension takes all the bumps the road throws at it in stride, while individually adjustable jack stands provide ease of leveling and stability. For improved fuel economy, this fifth wheel’s tires are filled with nitrogen, which also provides extended tire life, and improved braking, handling and safety.

Other exterior features that come in handy include a triple 30lb. LP tank on the slider compartment, a propane gas port, a triple-step entry, a sliding clear pane on the main entrance door, an extra large movable grab handle, high illumination scare lights, A&E 8500 series awning, deep tint windows, safety glass and water heater by-pass.

Making it the envy of the camp ground, the Bristol Bay 3510 RE’s interior is full of plush luxury. Available in a range of decors and cabinetry options, this fifth wheel is dressed to impress. On the floor, you’ll find Beauflor, a new flooring dimension that is resistant to mold and mildew, cold cracking, slipping and stains, and its surface is highly resistant to tears, rips and gouges. Boasting wide, open spaces, there’s plenty of room to move around and entertain – which you’ll be doing a lot of once everyone sees how cushy your travelling pad is.

Next to the living area is the open L-shaped center kitchen, which comes equipped with a Dometic microwave, an oven, a refrigerator and a three-burner cooktop. For all your storage needs, there’s even more cabinetry, as well as a large pantry. For prep and clean up, it features composite surface countertops, sink covers and a double sink.

In the front of the 3510 RE is where you’ll find the master bedroom. A full sized residential queen bed with pillow-top-mattress will give you sweet dreams, and the huge mirrored wardrobes, storage cabinets and an optional LCD TV are dreams come true. There’s even a vanity in the bedroom, which makes it easy to get ready if someone is occupying the bathroom.
