Thanks for posting the pictures. Where did you get the brown seats that goes between the two captain seats?

They are the front seats folded backwards. The front seats I have were originally Airstream but I had them customized with real brown leather.

The gray cushions are natural latex that are 5" thick to create a comfortable sleep where it counts. On cushion is on seat on the front and the other smaller cushion is on the seat in the middle. You sleep head in the front feet on the middle seat.

This works really well for adults and should work great for smaller ones.

Also, to stow, I find leaving the very back cushions for King bed down on railing (these are the cushions behind the bench seat stow up on the side of the vehicle except leaving them down instead of up position) helps to put these cushions and all bedding. This leave space below in back under the railing for luggage and plenty of room on top for bedding.

Those "very back cushions" are only available on the Extended model. for a non-extended model, there's very little room back there, and no fold-down sections. In my non-extended model, I use the side-facing ottoman under the passenger-side hanging cabinet to store my bedding; it's not usable as a seat anyway due to the low cabinet overhead.

Eliasurbina, those cushions are a great idea! Any chance we could get the dimensions to order up some of our own? Thanks.

Sleep 2 Adults in Fiamma Privacy Room to Cots
Attachment 190551

Extend a Room did not work out from back of vehicle (too much trouble for floor base), instead use Fiamma Privacy Room.


Really interested in your Fiamma Privacy room. I am trying to put together something for the kids to sleep. They are a bit your for their own tent so need to buy some time. Can you send more pics and info on how your set up is. That is a great pic of that room. Just need more to get a good idea of what you gat going on.
Thanks!

I used to have a Fiamma Privacy Room, until it got destroyed in a very windy dust storm in Farmington, NM in 2015. On the plus side, in the process of being destroyed, it still added enough weight to the edges of my deployed awning that the awning itself survived. On the minus side, if I had needed to put away the awning in a hurry due to an impending storm, it would have taken at least half an hour to take down the Privacy Room and retract the awning. And that's without taking the time to properly put away the awning panels afterward. So the Fiamma Privacy Room should be considered strictly a good-weather addition.

And the Fiamma Privacy Room will only work with the Fiamma F65s awning. It will not work with the newer Fiamma F65Eagle auto-retract awning.

Since the demise of my Privacy Room, I have used a free-standing screen room. First a 10'10' Coleman, with screen walls that I could add, and three sunshade walls that I could add along with the screening to provide privacy on every side but the entrance (which I would set up facing the motorhome).

But that proved unwieldy to set up and take down, so I replaced it with a hexagonal Clam Corp. free-standing screen room. Easy to set up and take down by just one person, once you get the hang of it. And I also got five wall panels for it that I can add to provide privacy on every side but the entrance, which I set up facing the motorhome.

I haven't used the walls for the Clam Corp. screen room yet, because the screening has been enough for my purposes. But if I need them, I've got them.

I also got the clam with 5 walls. Saved the weekend on a cold windy rainy trip last fall....for 3 couples.

Sorry but that should read "they are a bit YOUNG for their own tent"

And now for an inelegant solution... when things get crowded in my AI bed, I sweep up and take an inflatable camping pad I bought at Costco (photo attached) and sleep on the floor of my vehicle. It's surprisingly comfortable. My head ends up between driver and front passenger seat (it gets real tight in the aisle btw the kitchen and bath). It did take me a few sore nights to realize the bump that holds table into floor protrudes enough to leave my back sore if I sleep on my back all night. I usually sleep on my side for part of the night as a result. It sounds a bit ghetto, but I've done it 4 nights in a row and probably slept better than I would on a crowded bed. I doubt this is a solution for two, but it probably works for one of your teens.
