My trailer has a wider bed on the curb (door) side, so we sleep with our heads to that side. I've noticed in pictures that this varies widely. Which way do you sleep and why?

Cam A,
Nuestra Casita (17' FD)came with the television shelf in the corner on the curb side. The previous owner added a folding counter extension next to the stove which is also on the curb side. Our feet are underneath them.
Works for us!

head to the curb because there is an electrical outlet at other end which is usually in use. Some discrepancy as to who's on top (thanks for asking !!) due to tight constraints within, LOL!!!

Head to streetside. 2 reasons. You can see the door and the kitchen counter doubles a night table. The other way around, the closet interferes with both.

Another thought is that since the closet has less depth than the kitchen counter, you have more room to swing your legs around getting in and out.

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!!!

I'm 6'3" and need the easiest (fastest) exit out of that bed as I can get, due to incuring leg cramps usually occuring in the night!!!

Ditto for us. Also, since I'm claustrophobic, I don't feel as closed-in that way.

Head to the street, because the trailer always seems to be just a little higher on that side. Perfectly level never happens.

Our King Size Bed is 75" from Fore-to-Aft and 80" from side-to-side, and it is in the front of the trailer. The TV/VCR is on a shelf in the front-streetside corner, plus we have a low shelf across the front just under the front window. This shelf is too low for our feet to fit under comfortably, so we stopped sleeping fore-to-aft with our heads toward the center of the trailer and now sleep side-to-side with our heads toward the curb side. This makes the low shelf in front into a bedside nite stand for Robert's alarm clock, medicine, and water bottle.

Head to street so I can put my water bottle and cell phone on the kitchen counter. Our trailer sits higher on the street side as our fridge sits high in the front.

Head to street,we like to be able to see the door. But, if I sleep on the front couch, I sleep head to curb...more shoulder room, the bathroom is on the street side.

I have a Surfside as well so same here. Gives a touch more room for two people, feet get the slightly smaller section.
