I notice some of the newer Class C's come with a queen corner bed rather than a double corner bed. Are these any easier to get out at night over the double beds? Also those that have had these corner beds and are getting older with some arthritis, do the twin beds that convert to a king seem like a better option over the queen corner?

Had a corner double bed. Awful. We now have twin beds. Love it. The twin beds can easily be made into a king size bed but we don't bother.

I would think that twins would be easier. Sometimes one twin is shorter at 68" while the other is 74" but width is usually at 32" . You have to look at the sizes.
The other thing is what do twin beds do to the floorplan and the placement of bathroom configuration , water tanks, plumbing routing, water pump location and storage. You have to take into consideration what one alteration will do to other related things, then weigh that into the option.

Corner beds are for the young.

I don't like corner anything for ease of making the bed. But, I wouldn't do twin beds either. All comes down to preferences and how much you're willing to sacrifice.

In a 24ft Class C the only options are the corner bed, double or queen without a slide. With a slide you lose the large rear storage bay but get a fold up queen when slide is out. A 25 ft C comes with the two twin beds and the large storage bay with no slide. Everything is a trade off. The full wall slide is nice when camping but less convenient when traveling with quick overnight stops.

Which model do you have? How many ft long? I am looking to stay short 24-25ft.

Our Class C has the standard rear corner queen bed and overhead cab queen bed.

The wife uses the rear corner bed and I use the cabover bed ... lots of room for both of us to move around ... which she needs for her bad back. Neither of us have (yet) any issues getting into/out-of our respective beds.

We don't make up either bed to "look pretty", so there's no hassles with doing that. Each bed just has pillows and blankets or comforters showing on it all the time.

The above provides good sleeping arrangements for both of us in our compact 24 foot. Class C.

I had twin beds in my first class A. there is nothing worse than rolling against that cold wall in the middle of the night.

We have the Winnebago Navion, which is around 25 feet long. Twin beds have become very popular and several companies offer them, including in class B RVs.
