head to street so it is a) away from the door, underneath the window that opens (love fresh air) and c) because I sleep on my right side and this allows me to have my back to the wall.

tada.

Head to street side here. I want to be able to see the door. TV shelf is at my feet/
If sleeping on side table I sleep head to the rear of trailer. Again, I want to see the door. Plus breeze from fantastic fan is in that end of the camper.

I sleep head to the street (though since I'm not parking on a street that isn't really true) but my door is in the back so it isn't doorside. I don't know why I picked that way except that I sleep on that side of the bed at my cabin and started sleeping in the trailer after being at the cabin all summer (I sleep on the other side at home.)

Roy, we/I find it easier to swing our legs up and over YOUR night table than to try n swing them over the closet, LOL!!!
One small problem with that, the wrought iron on the night table still sticks out further than the closet. I'd imagine the extra foot you have on me would make it even more difficult to manouver around the twisted metal.

We sleep longitudinally with our toes to the front and heads to the rear of the Compact Jr. With a square bed (72" x & 70") we have many options, but we found our method allows the easiest middle of the night exit and reentry.

We sleep the same way in our Northern Lite since we have a tip-out bunk on the front. We have yet to use the dinette bed, but if I had to guess, I'd say head to curb.

We used to sleep head to toe (both ways side to side) when our bed was only 44" wide but now both of us are feet to the curb toward the television.

Our last two trailers have had a fore and aft sleeping arrangement and so we usually lie down after the set up and confer which end is lower and which end is higher and then put our heads at the higher end. If no difference we find we sleep heads at the front and our toes towards the door at the rear. I think its something about looking out at the whole trailer and we find that when we are getting out of the sleeping bags that it is easier with the security of the front wall to rest against than the open space of the galley.
