Conner beds are not my cup of tea! They are really hard to make up, and if your on the inside, hope you can sleep the entire night without waking up!


We made that mistake ONCE, our first travel trailer we kept for exactly 2 outings, and put it up for sale. Never again own a corner bed RV.

The units we've had for the last 16 years have all had corner beds. I decided with my move to my new RV that I'd had enough of that - no more corner beds for me. IMO, the extra 6" that a queen would give over the full isn't going to make that much difference for getting out in the middle of the night. You'll still be wrestling with bedding, climbing over your SO, climbing over your SO again to get back in, then wrestling with bedding again to get back under the covers.

FWIW, I never had much trouble making the corner bed. Just started at the back and worked my way down so that I was never kneeling on the bedding that I was working with.

Has anyone tried a 2 person sleeping bag that you roll up or just straiten out when you get up in the morning?


Yes. We actually have two sets
Heavy weight , 0 F rated for winter use
Lightweight, 40F rated for summer
Both are zip together systems.
We used a homemade , sewn together set of two top sheets as a bag liner that can easily be washed.

That double bag system was ok but sometimes felt a little bit restricted. We found using sheets and blankets allowed better temp control. We now use merino wool blankets over the top sheets and love them.

You have to unzip your side each time you get up , unless you leave it half zipped. That was how we used ours, then we decided to just go back to sheets and blankets. As i stated in my earlier post, just leave the bed made using the fitted bottom sheet.

We've got a corner queen, full 60x80. My wife, who can and does if given the opportunity sleeps 12 hours straight, is on the outside wall. Me, who has to get up at least once a night, takes the bathroom side of the bed.

This is a Serta pillow top innerspring mattress that was an option for our year of Sunseeker, and while branded as an RV mattress is pretty much identical to an at-home bed. It's my job to put the mattress pad and fitted bottom sheet on, as that is a wrestling match done kneeling on the middle of the bed, and peeling up the RR corner to get those things started, same he-man action for the corner at the back of the bathroom and rear wall, then get off and do the other two corners at the toe-end of the mattress standing on the floor. For covers, everything is loose and thrown over. We each have different preferences for those when sleeping - she like her feet out and I don't for one, so we've taken to each having our our sheet and/or comforter. While that may be weird, it works for us and I sleep better.

Our floorplan does not have a short closet overhanging the end of the bed. We don't find the bed area at all claustrophobic, and it was the only way to get the needed minimum living area in a short, no-slide, 24' length.

To get out of bed, I just swing my legs up and down quickly, and that inertia scootches me down the bed so my legs can get down to the floor. It might take another move, but nothing hard for getting out the end.

I have used the Queen corner bed once. But now I am using ***Link Removed***. Thanks for sharing your words.

Bought a Travel-sac-cover (similar to a double aleeping bag with sheets inside, summer side up, flip for winter side up, works great for making-up a corner bed), now also works great for our walk around bed.
We went from a 27' 1 slide corner bed, to a 30' 2 slide almost walk-around bed. Amazing how much more comfort, space/room we gained in just 3'.

I guess I'm just weird,but I like my corner bed. I think it's the best floor plan for a small (26ft) class C. BTW my wife is 77 and I'm 79.

Seems like opinions are mixed. If staying with a 24 ft non slide letting wife have the rear and the man sleeping in the overhead would be an option as Phil does. A rear slide with a queen or a full wall slide with a queen and dinette is another option. Has anyone tried these other two options in a 24 ft MH, if so how did the slide outs work out for you?

My bride went out to the coach this afternoon and remade the bed on our new {full sized - 60 X 80"} queen mattress:

[image]

We are not big people, I'm 5'9"/185# and my bride is 5'1"/115#. We have always slept very comfortably in our coach over the last 7.5 years and will get the chance again in two weeks as we will be having house guests giving them our master bedroom and the back guest bedroom while Jeanne and I sleep in the coach out in the driveway. It's nice to be able to add another bedroom and bath to our smallish 3/2 house.

The bed pic shows the Amish made, solid Maple cabinets nicely as well. Before passing over the Rainbow Bridge our Greyhound rescue used to love to lay on the bed as we cruised enjoying the two large windows. Lots of folks passed and waved usually laughing their butts off.

We downsized to a queen corner bed, use a Travel Sac , just shake it out in the am. I sleep on the curb size and just slide out the end instead of crawling over husband.If you are buying new I would suggest going a little bigger and get a walk around if you plan to do a lot of traveling.
