Thanks again everyone! I took some pics and video and thought I'd share. I forgot to try the twist and lift today! Darn...I'll be back there tomorrow. I'll try then....
In assessing the front end area, I'd like to keep the option of having it as a seating area by day and bed by night. I realize getting a queen size mattress would rock and be totally comfortable but if I did that I really wouldn't have any other casual seating area aside from the dinette area....you know, a place to kick back, watch some dvd's, etc.
Check out the videos and you can see some of my thoughts about the lower and upper areas of this part of the trailer. Thanks!
Front end of trailer....where some have suggested a permanent bed go. Starting from left to right.....
And here is the "bunk" area above the lower area. Again from left to right..
