Twins in the rear?

Why on Earth would they put twin beds in the rear of the coach? Not sure about you but I like sleeping with my wife. Close quarters leads to closer quarters' if you're pickin up whatI'm puttin down.

Rob and Laura beds are not for everyone. If you know what that means, you're probably at an age close to understanding why not everyone wants to listen to the wife (or husband) snore and toss and turn all night.
Enjoy it while you can!

That's our story. I toss and turn while stealing covers. It's not that far from one bed to the other. I don't even need a compass.

If you don't like them pick a coach without. My wife would love to find the motorhome of her dreams and it would include twin beds. Unfortunately they are not that easy to find.

Yeah, I know what Rob & Laura means - Dick Van Dyke. I see twins around on RVTrader and CL. Not near me though. Don't want it. I was just wondering if it was a technical thing - like outside storage bins or a gen set in the way or something like that.

There is a small niche market for twin beds, they are not very popular, but for older folks it can be an option they prefer. Our MH has a corner "queen" bed and there are times I wish we had twins. Cozy is great but the sheet ownership battle can be a pain sometimes.
I think they're really rare on Class C's though.

Never had the twin bed setup, but I always assumed that one advantage would be that it would give you nearly twice the amount of floor space between the beds, as opposed to half the space on each side of a queen. I know there is not much space to walk on each side of our island bed.

Rob and Laura were preceded by Lucy and Desi, and a host of others.

Suppose I find a rig I like and is in my price range but has twins. Can I remove them and replace with a queen? There isn't anything underneath that needs relocated is there? I remember the Class C my dad had and it had a centered queen but there was nothing underneath but storage. I want to make sure there isn't a compressor, or batteries, or electrical back there.

Ours has twins in the back. Genny and electrical under 1, fresh water tank and pump under the other.

If it's a class A with a basement, most of the things that would cause a problem are in the basement. Some class C motor homes have basements too.

Ours has twin beds too, a corner double in the back, and a queen over the cab for when I snore too much for the DW or her migraines act up and she can't sleep.

Were shopping for a newer used class C and there seems to be a lot of twins on the market right now. The one we liked and the price was wonderful but TWINS. Nearly as bad as putting the generator under the bed. What were they thinking?? Finally foeund one a hundred miles away and now it's been snowing for 5 days with no letup in sight. Queen bed and genny right behind the driver. Don't need the noise and exhaust under the bed
