Space for a bed

Somewhere on the posts there was a discussion about the distance in the bedroom for making a bed. I wish there was a way I could get them (the manufacturers) to realize "when you have to open the closet door for your butt, there's not enough room to make a bed!" Not only that, I live with a 6'5" man and at night when I must get up to make water there is no room for me to get past his feet (hanging off the end of the bed) No one is cookie cutter sized. BUT don't these people have to make a bed now and then???

I guess the answer is that you have to consider that when making your purchases decision. Bigger people need floor plans with larger beds and room to get around, bigger shower, taller ceilings, etc. That often means a larger RV overall. One size does not fit all, and trying to fit the amenities everybody wants into a smaller, less expensive RVer is a challenge.

Switch sides with your husband---and have him make the bed--------it will take one trip for him to start looking at other RV's with more room----I know I am one.

We have friends with a Sunnybrook 5th wheel---he is 6'5"----Sunnybrook has a King Size bed and plenty room to make it---perhaps a good used one would be just the ticket?

I'll bet you could wrangle a heck of a deal.

I wish you well---sincerely.
