Sovereign Middle twin sleeping area

Comfort is a must for this old broken down war horse the Army forced out to pasture after 21 years. My body is in pain 24 7 as they say, but praise God!, life is good. Forums has given us many wonderful ideas on what to do to make the front room area neat and comfortable in our 67 Sovereign. I need help on the middle sleeping area that contains two gaucho bed frames with all the storage areas under them. Kathy wants to see if we can just put two futon beds atop the frames, (1) Is this doable, and has it been done by any of you? (2) If futons don't work, what are some of our options to get this in to a nice sleeping area with twin beds? (3) Has any of you done any conversion work to make a single bed work, double, or short queen and not knock your head off moving around a single bed? Kathy will not let me remove any of the over head storage, for that is what she loves about an AS; all the wonderful storage spaces and the traffic flow through from the front to the bath in the rear and w/o slides! Thanks for any help in these areas.

To all who served - give them thanks - give them respect - may God give all many blessings (Ray Bozeman)

The gaucho in my trailer has two parts, the base with a drawer and the top which converts. By removing six bolts it separates.

Could you not just add a bed top (perhaps as simple as plywood) to the base and place a new twin mattress on that? The AS twin is 34" wide. We found that there is room to fit in one standard 39" twin.

If you like this idea I would likely add a proud rim on the plywood to keep it straight and capture the mattress.
