Convert queen bed to king bed in a Cougar

We have an 06 Cougar 26' 5ver and would like to convert the bed to a king w/o losing a lot of storage. Has anyone done this? If so could I see some photos please.

Where is your storage and what is the room layout? I have a30ft 07 cougar with a queen bed with a closet on each side and storage under the bed. No way I could put in a king bed without losing a closet, maybe both. A king is 16 inches wider.

I think that you will play heck trying to get a king mattress through the door, much less up the stairs. Plus as JethroHeller said, 16 inches is a lot of width to contend with.

Yes our layout has a closet on each side. Was really hoping but it appears we're stuck with the queen. Kind of hard sleeping for two adults and a 25lb dog.

The dog needs to be treated like a dog.
Me and the Mrs are very comfortable in a double bed that is same length as a camper queen. We needed this bed to improve the comfort of our last unit's bed.

Our older pup joins us in bed for a short while then jumps down to enjoy her own nest - which is in the front closet where a washer/dryer would fit in our Montana. The young one will sleep in her crate until she 'remembers' her manners.

As far as a king bed in a 26 foot 5er - you will be losing way too much valuable living space. A regular queen might work at 80x60 if you have a standard double (hopefully not one of the way too short RV doubles)

King would be nice but difficult to install. Dog may have to sleep elsewhere (or one of you)!
