I've imagined something like this, so it's great to see that it can be done. What you haven't said is how well you sleep, but I assume it's a more comfortable place now.
For my wife and I, the problem isn't our height but our width. I sleep with my face a few inches from a hard fiberglass counter wall, which I've had to insulate so it doesn't radiate coldth (a scientific term) all night. We're accustomed to spooning all night, and rolling over in tandem like synchronized sleepers. I read that Civil War re-enactors, lacking any sleeping bags, spoon together like this in long chains.
I can't devote the dinette to a full-time bed because we need bunks in front, but I believe I'd set this up every night just for the extra space. Thanks for a great tip. Makes you wonder why Scamp
didn't think about it first. Sometimes I think they're too traditional-minded and set in their ways?
