I replaced rear twin beds in a 1984 31' Excella with a king size bed (oriented cross wise). The rear bedroom is now wall to wall mattress but for my 265 lb., 6'4" frame it is wonderful to sleep on for one or two people. The mattress sits on a metal top frame that is hinged at the aft end to allow access to storage under the bed. I have not perfected a gas pressure strut lifting mechanism but use a simple rope and block and tackle attached to the bulkhead wall and bed frame. The bed frame was from IKEA (metal with wooden slats).
A queen bed installation should be easier and allow a walkway, although limited, on either side.
