Class A diesel/twin beds

Why are there NO Class A diesel coaches with twin beds on the market? If there is who is making one? Can't believe this option isn't desirable? I'm not talking about a sprinter chassis or a bloated B or C, I'm talking about what was prevalent in the class A market some 30-40 years ago. Bunks came back, why not twins? My kids have out grown bunks, my wife and I don't care to squeeze into a queen and I like laying parallel in a moving vehicle not perpendicular.


Any help appreciated.

Good luck with that! I totally agree but not so much for a DP. My dad had a mid 80's Newell with twin beds and it was great. I've had a small Winnebago Rialta with twin beds, and an old Winnebago Super Chief with twin beds.

Unfortunately twin beds options have gone the way of the motorhome with no slides. Very few and even more hard to find. Not enough folks want the configuration as bigger is better, and more slides is best(er)!

RVs get modified all the time. If you find a floor plan that will work when changed, I doubt it would break the bank.

Absolutely true but you know I've got to think it might dawn on some designer where do we put little Johnnie and Janie when they out grow the toddler bunks. My kids are teenagers, my son 6'-0" and while I understand "bigger is better" in the minds of many, I yearn for a good ole GMC coach that allowed for a lot of glass, twin beds, while providing an open aisle all the way through the coach for maneuverability while rolling down the road. But I guess I'm an old fool at 48 ��

Since the bed typically sits on top of the slide mechanism, my guess is this is the reason there are no Twin beds. Good thought though.

Would probably have to do a raised floor but it wouldn't be too difficult to rip out the rear bed and do some remodeling around the engine bay.

Twin beds have been going away every since The Bradys replaced the Petries as the top TV family.

The simple solution is a king bed with a bundling board.

No, that's not the reason, a couch can slide back and forth and hence a 72"-76" bed can too. ive seen a custom Newell with opposing twin bed slides.

True, I f the beds were completely aft, however mid-aisle configurations would work without any of that engineering around the engine bay.

Yep. Sounds doable
