We are wanting to do this exact same thing with our 2012 25' FC . This is a huge help! It answers many of our questions. We are also considering adding a bunk on one side or a slide to one of the twins to be able to sleep three in the back. 😊. Thank you for your posts!

Hi.

Those aren't sheets; those are the fabric mattress covers in a sort of denim blue.

These foam mattresses were custom made in a local foam shop.

So the mattresses are just foam no springs? What is the thickness and density of the foam that you used? How do you sleep now? We're looking into replacing our two mattress, the ones that came in the trailer from Airstream with springs in them.

We omitted the factory Classic twin mattresses and left them there in Ohio. We had ordered the Rocky Mountain mattress company 8" mattress before for our 25FB and thus ordered the custom shaped twins at 8". We could have ordered up to 10" thick and not been above the bedside table. Note that twins can be made up to 12" longer for the taller folks.

We also ordered the Airstream 600 thread custom sheets and they fit the 8" mattress perfectly in both trailers. They might work on a 9" as well.

We will either get a 25 with twin beds or a Winnebago View like this:

Yes.

Just Medium density foam mattresses. Way more comfortable than the factory supplied spring coil mattress.

We are in the process of changing our 25' Safari SS, year 2006, from a double bed to bunk beds. With the configuration of the SS you can hardly get into the bathroom because the door won't open very far and the person sleeping on the outside has to crawl over the one on the inside to get out of bed. We are using 1-1/2" square aluminum for the legs, ladder and top frame. We used the material from the bottom double to build the twin bottom support. I think we will really like it when we are all through. We will even have enough room by the bed to turn around and a sitting area to put on our shoes. More later!!!

Interesting to hear the views on this thread. Good points. I have twin beds and have been wishing I had queen. Thanks to everyone, now I will just be happy with the twins.
