Poll: Would You Rather have Twin Beds or a Queen?

Curious as to what owners would prefer having in a 25' Bigfoot?

Thanks

Queen if it is easy to get in/out of. Otherwise twin. We have twin beds in our Oliver. Easy to get in/out of, easy access to back overheads and don’t have to convert a table area to a bed.

I wanted an Oliver with the queen/king bed, but found one with the twins. At first I hesitated, but then went ahead. Turns out, for us, twins are much better. The twin setup comes with a dresser and drawer, and much more floor space because of the space between the beds. When getting up we never have to crawl over the other one and can sleep with head forward or toward the rear with equal ease of getting in and out of bed. And with a small folding table, you still have a, sort of, dinette or dinner and game area. It's also possible to put plywood across the trailer and turn twins into a queen, if it ever seemed like a good idea. When traveling, the beds are often used at different times. We keep somewhat different late night hours and we end up reading/watching movies, cooking, studying, or napping at different times. The twins accommodate all of this very well. The downside is, of course, you can't just sprawl out and sleep crosswise if you want to.

Does the twin set up afford more storage...above and below the beds vs. the queen arrangement?

From what I can see, the twin allows one to access an "exterior" compartment underneath the twin on the "passenger" side of the trailer, but is it the same on the "drivers" side?

At least the queen in the 25 ft. affords one the ability to walk around the bed without disturbing the one beside you.

Definitely a queen. Cold mountain nights are custom made for snuggling.

I like the concept of the queen bed and all the merits of sharing with the significant other give. What I like about the twin beds in the Bigfoot is the length of the bed and the additional upper storage this layout affords.

Definitely a queen or even a full. I don't like twin beds. I have to sleep in one when I visit a friend and there isn't enough room for me to lay on my side without my hands hanging over the side of the bed. Mashing my hands up against my body isn't comfortable after a short while and hanging them over the edge of the bed isn't comfortable either. But, with a full or queen, there's plenty of arm/hand flopping around room.

Depends on the trailer. On our Casita Liberty, the twins were 23 inches wide (a standard twin is 39 inches). If the twins are close to standard size, they would be my choice. It they are twins in name only, I'd go with the queen.

In the 25RT they are 36x80, a decent size for a twin.
