I would try it out before buying. Most of the replies you got were from people who don't own a Winnebago Sprinter J model. A Winnebago Sprinter Class C is only 7 1/2 feet wide. Most of the responses are from people with an RV that's at least 8 feet wide. That width reduction has to come from somewhere. Either the bathroom, bed area or both.

We opted for a layout with the kitchen and bathroom in the back. We wanted to have the dinette and sofa in the front door more casual seating. The two kids sleep on the top, my wife on the dinette folded down and I'm in the sofa. Obviously not full time but for the weekend warrior, it works. I like having the space for seating.

When shopping for our Itasca Navion last year we liked the 24J model best but had reservations about the corner bed. Yes it's a bit more difficult to make the bed but it's not a deal breaker. Yes the one person has to crawl over the other to use the bathroom but that's a given with a corner bed. We're both 5' 7" and slighter larger than average build and over 60 years old, but have no problem sleeping/using the bed. Ours has a shelf above our heads that works well for keeping eyeglasses, reading material and the like close at hand.

Our two previous coaches (a class C and class A) both had walkaround beds. Yes we miss the walkaround bed but we love the fact we can again visit some of the smaller forest service campgrounds again along with the great mileage and performance we get from the Mercedes diesel.

We typically use our coach 25-30 days a year and will be using it even more since we're now retired.

Having sold our Montana 5th wheel with 4 slides, we wanted something small to travel in and spend a night or two while on the road. The corner bed would be a problem if you were staying weeks at a time. If you think making up the corner bed is fun, try a vee birth in a cruising boat.
