My wife and I are looking to buy either a 5th wheel or a TT. We presently have a Coleman popup tent trailer with 77 x 70 bed (King Size). We are finding it difficult to find a true Queen Bed at 60 x 80. Most dealers list a Queen as 60 x 74 or less. One dealer lists a 57 x 70 as a queen. My wife has had some pretty good arguments with dealers who say that a standard fitted sheet set for a queen will fit a bed of 74 x 60. (Just a bit of extra sheet on either end).

I have scoured the internet looking for any dealer in Canada/USA who lists 60 x 80 Queen beds. There are not many. We don't want a trailer over 30' in length. Laredo which is made by Keystone RV is the only one I have found who advertise a true 60 x 80 Queen. Has anyone else had this problem or are we just being picky?

If you look at the younger generation, you will notice that there are a lot of tall kids out there. I am 6' 2" and my son who is just 15 years old is already 6'. I find it very uncomfortable sleeping either with my legs bent in the fetal position, or with them hanging over the end with my head pressed up against the head board. Why is it that manufacturers can't put a true queen bed in a trailer?

We just moved up from a Coleman Sante Fe to a Keystone sprinter with a 74 X 60 queen bed. An old set of queen sheets we had in the house fit.

Several do put in an 80" ong queen, but most use an "RV queen". The reason is room. That 6" shorter bed can creat room fro a usless nic-nac shelf.

Have a look at Northwood (Arctic Fox/Nash). They have several fivers with 60x80 beds.

My 27-5L is the smallest trailer that Arctic Fox makes with a 60" x 80" queen size bed. I'm 6'2" (74" for those that are math challenged). Our previous camper had 74" bunks with solid walls on each end. Not fun. The queen size bed in our camper is the same length as our king size bed at home, just narrower.

Our Shasta Capri has a 60X80 queen bed and a 75" sofa, these were selling features for our tall family. Our queen sheets fit our bed fine, and our 6'2" son fits the sofa, he hated those bunk beds.

Thanks for all the replys. I guess we will have to keep on looking. Maybe the newer '05 models will have what we are looking for.
Thanks again.

Why not find the camper style you like the best, and then replace the mattress with one you like? May not be feasible in some rigs I know, but where there's a will there's a way!

wakamicamper,

Most beds in RVs are very inexpensive ones, Not comfortable at all.

What we did is buy a new bed for the house and put the old bed in the trailer. Yes the mattress from the house is bigger than the one that was in the RV, but it fits and is very comfortable!

Holiday Rambeler and McKennze both offer 60 by 80 queen beds in their travel trailer and fivers. They both offer Kings in their fivers as an option.
