Bigfoot 17 Gaucho length

I just returned from several days in My "new to me" 2002 BF 17. I have the CB model and after doing some repairs and rebuild on the rear slide-out couch I chose to sleep there rather than the dinette area. I was disappointed that things were so tight as far as length. I am curious if someone has an early 2000 side gaucho/rear bath model, if you could share what the length of the side gaucho would be for sleeping. I am going to measure the dinette today but as I recall it is about 79 inches.

Thanks to all

My early model gaucho bed measures 77.5" x 46". I think later 1500 series beds are the same length but slightly more narrow due to the closet moving to the rear wall.

2002 17ftCB

The Goucho model was the first and yes a very narrow Couch/bed area when we had ours my wife got the bed and I got the Dinette,it was ok as love to stay up later. When they brought out the 17ftCB it was just a couch. The Dinette has the best sleeping conditions unless you have the Newer version with the 17.5 FB which has a real mattress. Our 21 ftRB has a rear bed but it is still narrow but it is a real mattress. But I still sleep on the dinette LOL as at home we have a King size bed.
