Setting up another bed

I was wondering how many of you have actually set up some type of "extra" bed in the "garage" of your toy haulers. We have a 28' Campmaster that has a 14' gargae and once the bikes are outside we would like to use the garage as a bedroom. The camper is designed to use the small fold out couch and kitchen table as the beds but both are too small for two of us to sleep on comfortably and also seems to be a hassle breaking down the kitchen every night. Anyway, I was interested in something like a large double "cot" or light fold up bed. Any ideas would be welcome and we are stumped to find something that works and it actually comfortable!

Bed

They have some pretty nice air beds now that have their own pump built in. If you get one that is chambered properly they are pretty comfortable. We have one we use for company and it works great. Make sure it has many chambers though.

I just went camping and used a fold up cot that my friend bought at Walmart. It was very comfortable and STRONG. I am 6'3" and 245lbs and it had no trouble supporting me. That might be an idea for your garage.

Great ideas by all, and definitely glad I found this site! Lots of nice folks with good ideas! We have thought about the air matress but the only thing about that is the leak factor; it just seems that every one we have ever had leak! I sure don't like waking up on the floor! I like the Murphy bed idea and if after measuring, we may look into that for sure! The cot is another that we have looked at but my significant other is not going to go for the fact that there will be "bars" between us. If I could find a double cot without a "tent" on it that might be an option as well. Anyway thanks again for some insight and we will continue to research the best option for us! As for now, we can't wait until the weather warms up some so we can get back out there and meet some more like minded folks! Thanks again and travel safe!

air matress is the only way to go... comfort, and uses little space to store

We use one like this with a memory foam mattress. You could sleep on it full time if you wanted to. Air pump is built in, easy set up, quick deflate. Bought it at Academy Sports.

I just removed the extra lift bed out of my toy hauler. The couch makes into a bed, also the table and I have another queen bed above the garage. I built and replaced the lift bed with a custom wooden storage box that gets stuff off the garage floor and makes more room for my Harley and Road Hog.

I someone wants to buy queen size lift bed (folds twice), let me know.
