My RV, my expense, my rules. A polite explanation that the room will be needed should be all that's needed to convince. If not, a little more blunt about the content of the first sentence of this post... and we'll be good to go...

So when they left, I put it all up so we could
a living room to get around in.
Any tips ?
The 3 rules (re: guests in our coach), are simple and easily understood.
1.) Cocktails for as many as 6.
2.) Dinner for as many as 4.
3.) Sleeping for ONLY 2.

Yes, works for me too - but that doesn't mean you can't comment.

We'll be having some family visitors on our next trip, so I quickly came up with this list

Bring more booze than you drink while you visit
Leave before you fall asleep
I control the music and TV
Kids and pets are negotiable, and I may request they be removed from the premises at anytime, and pets are outside only (probably a good rule for kids too)
And you better listen when I tell you how to use the head, because you are going to fix it / clean it out if you muck it up

I think many of us have had that guest that slept on the sofa bed, got up the next morning and just left everything looking like hell! I make my bed, I expect you to make yours, regardless of what it takes! There is little enough room inside my RV without having to work around a mess that's easily cleaned up, by the person who made it! That being said, removed the booth table (therefore the bed) and put in easy chairs! Took care of that problem!

Fortunately as much as we like company and other people, we never had company that stayed overnight in our RV. Until we bought this coach we didn't have space for another person no less a couple.

I would have said, in a nice way, the space is needed so please take care of the bedding.

It's simple. Give them directions to Wal Mart and tell them to go buy a tent and a air mattress. . Then they can leave their bed out all day, in their tent, and you can have your couch. When they realize you aren't kidding they'll put their things away.
