Sleeping capacity

We have been looking at A's but are a bit reticent as our C does sleep 6 and A's under 35 feet that sleep 6 seem scarce. I have looked at a few bunkhouse models as well as a few drop down bunks. Many of these are new and price is an issue. Has anyone converted a front TV area in an A into a bed? Tons of late model A's available and I wondered if this was a possibility.

We have a 2005 39Ft Fleetwood Providence DP designed to sleep 5. We have 4 adult friends plus DW and myself touring US this summer six total. I purchased a queen air mattress and will place this on the floor in kitchen area because I have 4 slides there is plenty of room to do this. Have a queen sleeper and Sleep number in bedroom.

Well we don't feed 6 instead, but rather 4 at the table. We have had a one or two stay overnight on the jack-knife sofa, but that is a very rare event.

Good idea for later in life but in general our 4 kids are fun to travel with!

Same here.

It is ironic that the larger the rig... the fewer it is usually designed to sleep.

When anyone asks we say, "Drinks for 6, food for 4, and sleeps 2."

BTDT Dave. But now it is grandkids that we spoil.
My 33ft Serrano will eat and sleep 6.
2 each on the rear queen, dinette, and couch.
There must be other rigs out there that have your requirements also.

Our current rig sleeps 10 (seat belts for 8) but we have never gone over 6. In reality we sleep in it, we are outside from breakfast till 10:00. During the day maybe 2 people may be inside at a time. If we want to stay inside we have a house for that.

Grandchildren are always an exception, and when you are through with them you give them back to the parents for punishment, :-).

Wish that was totally true!!
When my step daughter died we "inherited" 3 cats and two grandkids. That was about 4 years ago. One grandson moved out and two of the cats have died. The other grandson is 13 and really doesn't like going with us, but not much of any place to leave him, too young to stay at home by himself too. We tried that with his mother when she was about 16. We went away for the weekend, dropped her off at some friends about 30 miles away. Turned out they immediately want back to the house and had a 3 day party while we were away. Found the bongs, beer cans and damage when we got home.

Look for a class A with a dinette, a flip sofa and a queen master. That's what I have but I took out the dinette because I don't want to sleep more than 4 at a time!
