Wow, thanks Donna! We're in Bend. We get over to Portland occasionally. I'll keep this in mind. We have looked at the Escapes online. They look super nice and also a bit out of our price range. But not completely off the list. Are you going to Maryhill in May? We're hoping to make a day trip up there.

Thanks, Mike. We're in Bend, so NE CA wouldn't be too bad. If we can't find one closer, I'll let you know. We're planning on crashing a couple of fiberglass rallies in OR this year, so we may see one that way.

No Marge, I won't be attending Maryhill. If you're looking for something a bit closer... consider the Spring NOG April 21-24. South and east of Salem outside of Lebanon, off Hwy 20.

Go outside for scenery and you can have a comfortable shower inside.
Better yet, when you set-up, aim the rear window at the best view and have the best of both worlds.

No great view forward in a 5.0 T/A either but it doesn't make it less awesome.

Fortunately, I own both

Raining too hard to go outside

Mike, would you be willing to measure the distance from the bed platform to the underside of the overhang with cushions removed? Also, how thick are the cushions provided? We may want to make it into a permanent bed with our own mattress. Just wondering how much play we would have. Thanks so much!

The overhang is 10.5", the cushions are 4"(we put a 3" memory foam pad on top), also the counter extends about 7" over the bed.

Mike, just to clarify the 10.5" overhang is the height, not the depth from the wall, right? That would mean you only have 3.5" clearance for your feet? So I'd think you don't put them under the overhang. Is that right? Does that feel cramped? Losing 7" width at the feet doesn't seem like a deal breaker, especially if it means having a queen bed everywhere else.

That is correct, I'm 6' and I don't even notice the overhang.
