wildcat-fifth-wheels 297BH - DSO Dealer Stock Only

Perfect for families! The 297BH is a bunkhouse model with plenty of sleeping space. Our engineers wisely located the kids' and the adults' bedrooms on opposite ends of the coach for both peace and privacy at bedtime. In the front of the unit, the large queen bedroom provides a walkaround bed, wardrobe cabinets with hanging rod and drawers, and bedside nightstands. The adjacent bathroom gives you a glass radius shower, vanity sink with countertop, medicine cabinet, commode, and linen cabinet.
The Wildcat 297BH floorplan exterior sports a 21 foot electric power awning. It also features an outside refrigerator on the door side. This floorplan has two slide outs. Located toward the center of the RV, the entry door leads to a living area on the left and steps leading to a hallway on the right. In the living area on the off-door slide out, is a refrigerator to the left and a U-dinette to the right. A tri-fold sofa is in the front of the living area. In the rear of the living area, by the off-door side is a door leading to the bunkhouse. Steps on the door side of the living room lead to a hallway with the bathroom to the left and the bedroom straight ahead. On the door side of the living area, is an entertainment center. To the rear of that, is an L-shaped Counter top with a stove and sink. A microwave is above the stove area. Overhead cabinets are above the remaining countertop area. Located in the rear of the RV, the bunk house has top and bottom bunks on the door-side and bunk cubbies on the off-door side. A set of bunk stairs is against the rear wall between the bunk beds and the cubbies. The front of the RV features a bathroom with a shower, toilet, sink, linen storage and sliding door to the bedroom.

Each Forest River RV is weighed at the manufacturing facility prior to shipping. A label identifying the unloaded vehicle weight of the actual unit and the cargo carrying capacity is applied to every Forest River RV prior to leaving our facilities.

The load capacity of your unit is designated by weight, not by volume, so you cannot necessarily use all available space when loading your unit.

Actual towing capacity is dependent upon your particular loading and towing circumstances, which includes the GVWR, GAWR and GCWR as well as adequate trailer brakes. Please refer to the Operator's Manual of your vehicle for further towing information.
