Modified Rear Twin from 2-34" Wide to a 34" and 39"STD Twin

We have a 1986 rear twin, center bath 25' trailer. By replacing the metal slates with ones 5" longer I could convert one bed to a standard width twin. The bathroom is also 39" deep so the setup look like it should be that way. The only other change was cutting a new plywood top. I used 3/8" DF material, just to keep it from sagging. Material used: 1X2" aluminum square tubing, same width but 1/4" thicker than original. Tip up access still works too.

Very nice! My wife and I were discussing bedroom options just this afternoon. I assume you will have a mattress custom made?

The wife points out that AS no longer uses internal springs in their mattresses.

Her plan is to order standard foam twin mattresses and then using a foam saw cut them to fit. She will then sew the cover back on.

Thickness, 10", includes 2" of memory foam.

Thanks for the excellent idea on converting the roadside bed to a twin. I bought a twin X-long foam mattress and it worked perfectly.

Quick question- we pulled out our twins to put in a double or queen- does anyone know how much the twins weighed? Ours is an 87 sovereign

My guess is that the twin frame is about 20 pounds. It is really just a front and a few aluminum rectangular tubes. The decking is 1/4" think.

Also the mattresses we found on Amazon had independent springs, so we ended up with foam/spring mattresses.
