hi folks. I'm in Baker the product specialist here at American RV in Grand Rapids Michigan today.
I'm here to tie all about the 2017 am era light to 48 BH it's a great lightweight bunkhouse model at just over 3,800 pounds let's go ahead and start up front here and make our way back and then head on in the first things you'll notice is this guy right here which is your power tongue jack this really makes it easy to hook up and disconnect the tow vehicle all you have to do is touch this, button and that will raise and lower the front end for you also there is a light on here so, if you need to hook up or disconnect at night you can go ahead and use that for a little added visibility the plan the powered tongue jack is your propane tank cover nice and easy to access the tanks just unscrew the the thumb screws here lift up the door and then you can get into your 220 pound tanks right there behind the propane tank cover our rails for your battery box and then coming up the front is black diamond plating this will help protect the front end from any rocks or debris that get thrown up by your tow vehicle that way it hits the diamond plating and doesn't scratch up the beautiful front end coming around to the side here take a look there great storage compartment it is a pass-through you have a door on either side there. So, two access points you can also get at it from underneath the bed then moving back a little ways further here to power awning very easy to use just touch, button it rolls out same thing to go back in one-person operation also is an LED light strip on there so, if you want to turn on your LED lights just flip a switch you don't have to worry about hanging things up there yourself getting into the coach is very easy it has two steps, but as you can see that's all it needs it's a low profile they intended to be that way again it is lightweight they want it to sit low. So, it tows better electrical outlet right here so, if you need to plug anything in you can go ahead and do that whether it's a blender electric griddle whatever else you want you have the capability to do that right there window here as well that way you can look out see your campsite and then up above you have two speakers now, if you want to sit out here and listen to some music you can go ahead and do that very easily because it moved back a little bit this window right here these are for the bunks right underneath this is underneath the bunk here take a look at that great extra storage right there it's not only do you have the pass-through, but you have the additional storage underneath the bunk here then as we come around to the back side one thing.
I do like to note is this guy which is your spare tire this of course is mounted on the back hopefully you never have to use it, but in the event that you do it's always great to make sure you have it there you know check it before you go on the trips make sure it's full and then of course also has the cover on there that way it'll help protect it from the elements. So, you do have to use it you know it's in good shape, but that will pretty much wrap it up to the outside let's go take a look at the inside welcome to the inside the 2017 AM air light 248 VH this particular model is in the hoola-hoop interior let's go ahead and start off on the dinette right here. So, the thing.
I love what this dinette is the placement as. I mentioned we were outside you have this window right here that way is your eating your breakfast drinking your morning coffee you have a perfect view out to your campsite that's exactly what you want you don't want to look out at your neighbors you want look out at your own campsite so. I love when you have a door side dinette like this also, if you do have to unfortunately do any kind of work on laptop or maybe just plan on a tablet or cell phone you do have a plug in right underneath the table.
So, you can go ahead and plug that in and, if you take a look up top you have good storage right up there and on both sides that will flank your multimedia Center right here now that's multimedia Center is what runs the speakers outside as well as the speakers in here this one is Bluetooth capable it's also a radio CD and DVD player so, if you do want to watch a movie just go ahead and pop it in and then you can go ahead and watch it on a TV you can see the cables right here speaking of the TV as you will notice there's a sticker right there. So, you know exactly where to mount it hookups here of course and then as. I mentioned, if you want to watch a movie just go ahead and plug that guy in now this is a bunk model.
So, right back here are the bunks you can see a privacy curtain to go ahead and close it off this is what they call a double bunk. So, you have a double over double there nice and big that way, if you need to you can sleep two kids per bunk teddy bear bunk series very thick on here too. So, it's really soft and comfortable nice mattress there as well, if you notice you do have a window both top and bottom and you also have a light on top and bottom as well then right back here is your back you can see you have a comfort height toilet there then next to that is the tub shower so, if you need to give the kids a bath you can hand wand makes it nice easy to shower skylight and then of course a vent as well then when you step out of the bathroom right over here is your sink top and vanity additional storage down below plug in there and weird medicine cabinet with storage behind that as well we'll go ahead and open this up.
So, this is kind of a versatile space for me. I would personally use this as a pantry space right here next to the fridge, but, if you want it can double as a linen closet to seeing as how your sink and everything a bathroom is right there. So, you can use that really for whatever you want, but that is great acts are great extra storage there then as we open this guy up move a little bit further here's the medic fridge freezer combo six cubic foot you can see you have an open space there so, if you have a half gallon of milk two liter of soda something like that you can sneak it on in there this also runs off both propane and electric and has an automatic switch over and so, if you are running it off with propane as soon as you plug it in to shore power it'll automatically switch over to electric for you saving you on your propane gas right up top here is the microwave and as.
I mentioned there's the weight of it three thousand eight hundred ten pounds some nice and light weight then underneath is a fully functional hood with the light and a fan three burner cooktop right here and instead of the oven they did go ahead and opt for additional storage space which again. I personally like. I don't use an oven a ton, but you know every one is a little bit different so, if you know, if you want storage it definitely has the storage there for you also right here you can see two full extension drawers perfect to top one you can use for silverware the bottom one here is good for you know some of the larger items spatulas serving spoons things like that and that underneath the sink you can see right there additional storage speaking of the sink double bowl sink here your high rise oil rubbed bronze faucet and you have a plug in to need to plug in a coffee maker or anything like that you can certainly do that then up top here you have some more pantry storage.
So, again. I'm going to put things up there you can absolutely put them up there let's go ahead and move up front here this is the bedroom you will see a privacy curtain going all the way across you have speakers here as well and again those are connected to that multimedia Center then as you make your way in both sides of the bed you can see you have wardrobe hanging space there which is great shelf up top you have this shelf going all the way across with reading lights underneath shelf space on this side as well and you will see both sides have an electrical outlet so, if you need to charge a cell phone or, if you have a CPAP machine you need to plug in you can go ahead and do that too and then underneath as. I mentioned we were outside this does lift up struts supported this gives you access into that pass-through as well, but alright folks that's pretty much gonna wrap it up again this is a 2017 a mare light 248 BH this one is in the hula hoop interior, if you're looking for a lightweight bunk model with the big double bunks this is definitely one to consider it's a great value it's light weight has all the amenities you'll need you definitely want to check it out, if you do have any questions or comments please feel free to leave those in the section below or you can always give myself.
