Actually it is both easy to set up and comfy, but we have only used it a couple of times since we have a 54" bed, which is comfy enough for us.
I did this as an excercise to illustrate what could be done with a 13, especially since the only added part needed was the original Scamp
table,which I already had in the loft of my shop. The only drawback to this is that I must carry the table in the TV.
We have a heatstrip in our A/C as long we have shorepower.The furnace
can not be used in conjunction with the "king" extention and the closet can only open a few inches.
On the plus side, it eliminates the crawl over problem and leaves room to stand in front of the counter and still reach the sink. Remarkably, it really feels like a "king" bed since the narrow section at the foot does not cause any of the problems one might expect.
We have found that a shorter version can give the effect of a wider bed when sleeping in the normal configuration, allowing the outboard person to sleep comfortably without feeling too close to the edge.
Measure yours and make the extension only as long as needed.
