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.
So I take it you don't have to get up often to go to the bathroom. It just seems difficult to me to climb down that ladder in the middle of the night.

I do have to get up 2-3 times in the middle of the night, but so far I can do it from the overhead cab bed. Our motorhome has a floor that is raised up from the cab's floor - unlike many Class C rigs - so it's a shorter trip from the cabover bed down to the coach floor. I can even step down onto the dinette seat - along with using rungs on the ladder - so as to make it real easy and safe to get down from the cabover bed. Getting up onto the bed of course always takes just the ladder. I can also sit almost completely upright on the edge of the cabover bed with my legs hanging over.

Our highest priority is to use a small as possible motorhome for best driveability and access to the greatest selection of camping spots, while at the same time having one with the greatest amount of inside comfort as possible. I guess this means we somehow have to stay nimble in order for both of us to enjoy such things as a queen bed for each of us. [emoticon]

I looked at Phoenix Cruiser web site today and saw a Phoenix TRX with a double sofa, 22'10" in length. Are any on here familiar with this model or how comfortable those jackknife sofas are to sleep on?
