Dining Area / Sleeping Issue

I have a 2000 national tropical class a motorhome. Is has one main slide in the main living room where there is a couch with a fold out full size bed (which we use a lot and like), and next to it is a dining table with a dining chair on each side. We were going to retrofit it with a bench on each side with a drop down table to make into a sleeping area, but was told the area is too small, and only a small child would be able to fit there. I'm trying to make a long trip to Yellowstone next summer and need more sleeping space. Therefore, I need a little more sleeping space. I thought about putting a small futon against the wall with a removable table and chairs on the other side, but I would run into the same problem with a futon with the space. Do the make fold out single bed couches that can go against the wall with a removable table and them chairs on the other side? Or even better...and there any better ideas out there???

To me the let down tables are only good for small children or very short people. Have you considered a blow up bed or sam's club has padded cots that fold up like bag chairs just get them out and go to sleep and stow away in the morning.

I have, and a single blow up is going to be used for one child already, but I was trying to see about doing a retrofit to the coach to fit another adult or even two if I could (pipe dream maybe), but more comfortably like with the fold out couch with the temper pedic mattress (that's already in use).

awning screen room

What about attaching one of the screen rooms to your awning and allowing someone to sleep outside the coach in sleeping bags, blowup mattress or cots?

I've used an Aero-Bed when I have overflow sleepers. $99 at costco for a queen size and it's cheaper then modifying a dinette. It even has a headboard.

Ditto!

I used it for my 85 yr old MIL. She liked it so much she wanted to get one for home to replace her Sleep Number bed. She feels it is far more comfortable.

I don't know how much room you have in your RV, but I saw a cool looking Murphy bed that fits in a small motor home that ,,,,,,,,,,well, you just need to see it in action so here's the link. I'll bet these people could make something work for you.

Leisure Travel Vans - Unity - Floorplans

Check out the Murphy bed model floor plan and click on the + signs on that floor model to see it in action.

That leisure travel looks like a slick little unit for someone wanting to downsize. Check out the murphy bed unit with the optional u lounger.

Murphy Bed frames And cabinets can be purchased online reasonably priced. Not knowing your coach you could end up blocking a window. Keep us informed!
