Bill (Laura?), I'm very interested as my table is one of the last things I need to make in my Boler. The extension seems to be a must in order to sleep with my beloved instead of being at a different end of the trailer... I'll let you do the research and development and, then, I'll use your idea!

So thank you beforehand!

This looks great. Do you have any pictures of what it looks like underneath?

If you go back to pages 1 and 2 you will find what I have in pictures as well as a picture of the angle strapping I used to make the channels.

I will be building a storage drawer that is under the bed. When I pull it out it will lock open on the hinges and will have two lower support legs. Then will put on some cushion and I can sleep.
I am 6’5” so the way the bed is now won’t work.

Sounds great. Whatever works for anyone, and more storage is not a bad thing.

bed extension

I would not make a bed extension permanently attached to the table. We have a utensil drawer under the table top. Build a collapsible box. that fills the space. flat top, legs or no legs. PVC pipe box that comes apart. the look of a card board box with hinged sides, so it can fold up My wife and I tried a bed extension. Look back at early posts. You and your companion will have to fit your your legs and feet into the extension space. You CAN get used to the other person being in YOUR space. with the extension the heater outlet vent was blocked, by bedding; very hot for that persons feet. could not open cabinets blocked by the extension. extension looks great. We do not use it. We pull the table top out 8"s, put an 8" spacer below the rear window, put a piece of foam the correct shape over the insert, same thing where the table extends out into the aisle. We have 3" memory foam the shape of the whole bed, cut, with a 8" tab that covers the table top pullout, it is one piece. ( the tab can be velcro'd to the big piece of memory foam. ) It works. I can put my knees, or butt out into this area.

Later Kenny

What ever works for each individual. Our shelf slides under the bed, so the extension doesn't block anything during the day. We sleep front to back so we don't have to climb over the other person. I would assume your method, you still climb out and over. We are older than dirt and can't do that anymore. I'd pee before I got there if I was on the inside.

If you go back to the beginning of this thread, I posted pictures of our bed extension open, and closed away, as well as a drawing of how we made our bed drawer.

We were also looking to expand the comfortable sleeping space in our RV and someone recommended this Ashley Furniture Signature Design Zeb Contemporary Sleeper Sofa couch. It comes with the choice between three different mattress sizes and four different colors. It is a tri-fold and comes apart nicely to fit into our space. I am very happy with this sofa.

I don't think I can fit a sofa thru my trailer door.
Vivian My wife wakes me I sit up, slide to one side, she slides off the bed. I wait, when she returns and moves in under the sheets we go back to sleep.

Yeah- I'm trying to figure out where you would put a "sleeper sofa" in a molded fiberglass trailer. However, I notice that Natalie21 lists her RV as a "Ford," which may shed some light on the confusion.

I have just built a Bed extension and thought some people may like to see some photos. Seems I can only upload 4 at a time.
There are legs at the back that stay attached all the time. The front legs are removable. More pictures coming.
