Bed for Full Timer?

Hi, Chamaigne, and again, welcome to our forum.

As I said in an earlier post, I think that two standard kings would about fill the entire back dinette/bed area, leaving no or just a few inch wide aisle between them.

I have seen a number of mods done on Casitas/Scamps, etc., where the small dinette is fitted with a slideout to allow that bed to become a standard twin at night. Looks like it would take up about a foot of the aisle to the back, but the smaller dinette would be easier to break down into a bed at night than raising/lowering the big table, and would allow you more daytime workspace...

One of my friends bought a barely used Casita, and converted the back dinette to a twin size bed, east/west, and added storage shelves to one side of the now-unused bench area remaining after she removed the full sized mattress that came with it.

Is your goal two standard twins, or a queen or king at night? That might help us make suggestions.
