Trailer: 73 Boler 13 ft
Posts: 144
Our first Boler 1300 season last year was great! Except for width of the bed. Hard to read together, or even both lie on backs. And doesn't fit our 2 pillows,( the old foggie cervical ones,) side by side. so we are wondering about sleeping 90 degrees to the usual direction. Considering a piece of plywood extending out into kitchen area, set, at night, on something the same height as dinette seats. Would throw it in the back of the truck during the day. Any thoughts, trials. I realize the furnace would be out of the question in this configuration... Thanks!

Thanks, Cam, but the link in your reply won't take me there, "out of date or broken"
I googled Marc's Trillium but no luck. Any thoughts? Peggy

We overcome this by not sleeping shoulder to shoulder. This also works well when one wants to read a bit longer than the other.

I guess I no longer know how to post a link, anyways here it is: http://www.marcbarriere.com/wordpress/?page_id=86
I guess I do now...
I like his solution, which was to extend the bed forward, as per Myron, only basing it on two plastic storage tubs, which could be easily moved out of the way during the day.

Myron Leski extended the bed in his Burro. His solution might work for you if you want to keep the bed up all the time.

Yes, just like those two guys. Was hoping for a fairly easy solution that could come down in the daytime. Wondering about a piece of plywood over 2 heavy duty perfect-height Rubbermaid containers, or something of the sort.
