The New 2013 Dutchmen 318RKDS Travel Trailer

The Dutchmen 318 RKDS travel trailer is in a league of its own or should I say it used to be. As I stated in the summary Dutchmen RV no longer produces a travel trailer under the brand name Dutchmen. The units we now suggest in this floor plan is the Sunset Trail 300RK. This camper is a unit designed for those who no longer have a need for bunks in their recreational vehicle. This unit is for a couple who have raised their kids and are now ready for camper built just for them.

This double slide out unit is a rear kitchen floor plan. It has plenty of counter space and its location keeps other traffic from interfering. You will find a nice size pantry next to the 6 cubic feet refrigerator. One will also find a three burner range with a nice size oven. The sink is a double bowl with a high-rise faucet.

This mom-and-pop unit has an oversized U-shaped dinette and fold out sofa. So if by chance the kids or grandkids want to go, there is a place for them to sleep. This unit can sleep six people very comfortably.

In the living area along with the sofa one will find two swivel rockers. If one gets the optional TV, it will also have a DVD player. The comfort of the living room furniture will make TV viewing a real pleasure.

It has one of the largest side bathrooms in a travel trailer that I have ever seen. It has a neo-angle shower with a skylight above it. It has in the entry from the hallway or the master bedroom.

It has a Queen walk around bed with under storage, and pass-through storage across the entire front of the coach. You find additional storage in the sure closets and overhead cabinets.The Dutchmen 318RKS weighs 7358 pounds. It has a massive cargo capacity of 2322 pounds. It has an overall height including air-conditioner of 11 feet 4 inches. It is 8 feet wide. It has a freshwater capacity of 52 gallons. The black water tank can hold 42 gallons. The gray water tank can hold 42 gallons.

It has a 34,000 BTU automatic ignition furnace. It comes standard with air-conditioner, microwave, awning, tinted safety glass windows, 82 inch ceiling height, and many other features.

If it is time to leave the bunkhouse travel trailer genre behind and move to a mom-and-pop unit, this could be the unit for you. The 318 is an exciting and roomy floor plan. Do yourself a favor, and put this one on the list to check out. You will not be sorry.
