Anyone else not like the adjustable bed?

Hello everyone,

So we've had our Bus long enough to know what we like and don't like. For the most part we have very few regrets. We got most of the options and enjoy almost all of them.

But, the adjustable bed...we really don't like it. For one, the mattress was hard as a rock so we replaced that with a softer, more comfortable bed. It was then that I realized there was another issue. When you flatten the bed out it doesn't go back against the wall. There is a huge space between the head of the bed and the wall and pillows and, whatever else, falls back there. It's really annoying and effects our sleep because the pillows have no support. They end up slipping out and getting pushed back towards that space. It also doesn't feel like it gets completely flat. It just feels unnatural. I would definitely go with a normal bed if we were to order again.

Has anyone else had comfort issues related to the adjustable bed?

The other thing is that I wish we wouldn't have ordered the pull out trays for both the storage bays. Those trays take a lot of space and it really limits the size of the things you can store. I would get that option for one bay and leave the other one open next time. I will probably end up removing one of them.

Once I lay the bed back down flat I simply give the mattress a shove to get it back into place. Our memory foam is very firm but it does soften with use. One thing I do like is having the bed move out away from the wall changing sheets. We also have the 2 powered bay trays. You do loose some storage space but Ive found the deep bay on the passenger side works well for the taller items.

Thumbs up sliding trays

The sliding trays come in different lengths. You can order a 1/2 tray so you still have room in the storage compartment for some taller items. We did add an extra 1/2 tray in the central vac compartment in our 37PA and we think the 1 & 1/2 tray our a good combination.
We do not have the adjustable bed, but do like the fact that you can make your bed easier as it sort of has that "automatic away from the headboard feature." We have to manually pull the mattress out and push back in to make ours. Enjoy all your bells & whistles on your coach

Just stuff a couple of extra pillows into the hole between the mattress and the wall. They fill in the space and are easy to remove when making the bed.

We have a 2017 Bus with he adjustable bed. For me, this was a must have because of trying to make the head board corners. It also helps with my husband’s acid reflux and my stuffy sinuses. I use the large square pillow at the headboard area to both keep the pillows off the floor and keep my sleeping pillows from moving around. The mattress does loosen with age and body heat, but there are many mattress toppers available. Check Bed, Bath and Beyond. Happy sleeping.
