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.
