We started out looking at the 37' Dutch Star in 2015 but decided on the 40' so we could get the option to downsize the king to a queen, larger night stands on each side of the bed, and more room between the bed and the walls. Never sorry about that option either since the queen bed is more than enough for us.

Here are a couple photos of mine.

Down-sizing from a king to queen bed allows for the night stand tops to run all the way to the headboard wall; very practical. I placed a clock radio on one side. Making the bed is much easier, as the mattress isn't jammed under the window valances. Having a queen bed also allows much more room between the mattress and the bedroom walls; particularly convenient for getting into or out of the bed in the middle of the night. Finally, I feel the queen bed is much more proportional to the room as a whole than the king bed is.

Thanks a bunch. That's exactly what I was looking for. I imagine it also gives just a bit more room between the bed and bathroom.

That's similar to what I currently have in my Thor. I think my Thor has a bit more room on the backside of the valance, where I can put a little battery operated fan.

I think the wife will be much happier with that extra bit of nightstand, even for me, I'll be less pleased with the Queen vs. King.

Here are my pictures. The DW would not let me take them until she had the bed made.

My wife's response to the other pictures was, "wow, all of these guys make up their beds so nicely." I said, they probably took the pictures on the day they took deliver...

Thanks for posting.

I do dishes and windows too -- of course I have no choice, I travel alone. Did I mention...a queen bed sleeps one person very comfortably; when it gets hot on one side, you just roll over to the cool side!

Ummm. no, our coach is 16 years young, built before the advent of affordable digital camera's. As for making the bed...DW trained me well....(or so she thinks)
