Bed Size

Posted by Mike Watters, Moderator:

Bed Size
Quick question...

I'm just wondering about the bed sizes of the common glass trailers. Our Boler's rear bed is about 36-40 inches max, not all of which is practically useable because of the curve on the backside. What are the other makers like? I'm especially wondering about the current ones (Scamp & Casita). How wide are their rear beds? The literature mostly just reports "double" bed in the rear. (Which sure as heck isn't a conventional double-bed width!). Scamp DOES report a 54" wide bed for their deluxe (wood) models, but doesn't report the width on the standards.

Thanks

17 ft. Casita

Posted by Mary F, Moderator:

17 ft. Casita
Mike, I don't know the exact dimension (I can search for it), but I recently bought a feather bed to put on top.

I got a Double. It was too small!!


I returned it for a Queensize, and it fits perfectly...




Yes, I'm happy!


And, even though I have a Liberty (which is the floorplan that makes the Kingsize bed), I'm just talking about the ''double'' bed in the back room. With the 17 footer we find we don't need the Kingsize bed.

Our 13' Trillium is 48" which would be a 3/4 bed. I'm sure the 15' Trilliums have a 54".

Casita

Posted by Suz, Moderator, North Texas:

Casita
Mary, pretty much nailed it.

16 ft Casita is 48'' and the 17 is 54'' (except for the Liberty that does make into a king bed).

When I got a feather bed for mine, I bought a double. Even though it was 48'', it fit perfectly. With the added height of the feather bed and the high loft mattress pad, regular double sheets fit perfectly on the 48 In bed.

Bed in the back room

Bed in the back room
Suz, didn't you notice Mary's post about the size of her bed in the back room. I couldn't believe that you didn't say anything. Wish I had a back bedroom.

No, Ron, that one just flew by me. See, I have a back room, too, so I didn't even notice. Mine is just on the other side of the dining room and kitchen. Kinda centered between the two. Ah, have you seen my sign? Mary did.

Larry and Sherrin Delk own a 17 foot fiberglass wonder.

I was actually standing beside him, when he ask his wife if he could go inside and make a sandwich.

Sherrin replied "Ok, but eat it in the kitchen, because I just cleaned the trailer!."

True story.

Only thing ... I watched him.

Larry got even by eating his sandwich in the trailer's front hallway, crumbs falling everywhere!

To get back on track ... atleast Larry didn't eat the sandwich in bed.

Mike ... the bed dimensions for Casitas have been accurating posted. 13 and 16 foot are 48 inches. 17 foot trailer is 54 inches ... but my three rigs have all had the kingsize bed option ... which we use.

I figure if you're comfortable in bed, you're comfortable anywhere you go (because your bed is always with you!)

Boler 13' rear bed size

Posted by Rick F.D., Member, Hudson, MA - USA:

Boler 13' rear bed size

The rear bed area of my 13' 1978 Boler is 48" x 78". The 48" is measured from the inside rear wall, forward to the edges of the closet and sink structures. To get the full 48" you need a filler/extension where the 6"x 45* seat chamfer is located.
Good luck,

Hi all
These bed sizes in RVs are all made by aguy whos measuring tape has 12'' missing on one end, at least thats my opinion. I had to resort to a good bunk bed system so we could have a good size bed,At least thats one of my reasons for going that way.

bed sizes

Posted by Mike Watters, Moderator, Valparaiso, Indiana:

bed sizes
I went back out today and remeasured - perhaps I was being a bit pessimistic.

If I measure from the WALL to the closet/kitchen edge - I should be able to squeek out about 46". Adding that bed extension was gonna be one of my spring projects anyway. Haven't decided if I want to add the extension to the backside (certainly easier that way) - or if I want to add it to the front where the angled bit is. I don't think it would be TOO hard to make an extension that matched the contours and that stayed in position (by adding a support rail to the front edge of the seats with holes for pins to keep in in place).

Have to admit - I think the appeal of the Liberty floorplan is becoming more clear to me now.
