Sleeping position: Corner bed owners

Hello all,
not sure if this has been covered before but initial search didnt turn anything up....

has anyone and thier trailer-mate tried sleeping with their feet toward the rear of the trailer?
my thought is it may be more comfortable with your heads on the straight part of the mattress and feet toward the curve.

has this been validated or refuted in actual practice??
thanks!

The corner (and even midship) twins are much longer than normal twins -- more like college dorm XL twins (those sheets fit very well!). At 6' tall I sleep with my head to the corner and have 6-7" extra room. Thus I have plenty of room at the head of my bed. The curve is not an issue IMO.

I did sleep the opposite direction when we had a very sloped site a couple weeks ago. But my wife's foot area has a short wardrobe over the foot of her twin -- that wouldn't be so easy for anybody over 5'3"-5'4" to reverse direction.

We tried sleeping with our feet toward the back in the corner bed once and didn't like it...for us it was harder to get in and out of bed because we had to bring our legs/feet up so far to get them out and onto the floor...so we sleep with oiur heads to the back now... for what that's worth!

My DW and I have slept with our feet to the rear of the trailer since the first night out. I'm 6'1" and my wife is only 5' so I get the aisle postion. I really like the extra elbow room with that orientation, although sometimes I'm picking my pillow up off the floor in the middle of the night! We don't seem to have a problem getting in/out of bed. Truth be told, we don't mind the corner bed at all, although it is a challenge to change the sheets!

Sleeping positions and personality

Fetal Position (41%) Curled up on your side, holding the pillow. The most popular sleeping position, this one was favored by 51% of the women in the study. The personality of these sleepers tends to be shy and sensitive, though they may present a tough exterior to the world.

Soldier Position (8%) Flat on your back with arms at your sides. Indicates a quiet and reserved personality who sets high standards.

Starfish Position (5%) Lying on your back with arms and legs outstretched. Indicates a good listener who makes friends easily, but prefers not to be the center of attention.

Freefall Position (7%) Flat on your stomach with arms at the head or ears. Indicates a brash and gregarious exterior who may inwardly be nervous and sensitive to criticism.

Log Position (15%) On your side with legs outstretched and arms at your sides. Indicates a social, easygoing personality.

Yearner Position (13%) Similar to the log, but with arms outstretched. Said to indicate a suspicious and cynical personality.

The freefall position aided digestion, while the starfish and soldier sleeping positions were more likely to lead to snoring and an overall bad nights' sleep. But it may be as difficult to change as your personality itself; fewer than five percent of people slept in a different sleeping position every night.

In the corner bed I sleep diagonally with my bare feet on the outside wall to regulate temperature and my head at the shower wall. In the walkaround queen I often sleep tucked up sideways between the wardrobes.

Snoring?!

Carol: you're just a font of wisdom on so many subjects!

But I disagree about the snoring being a bigger deal when sleleping on one's back - there are those who've claimed I snore ... so I stayed awake all night one night to see, and I didn't snore a bit!

So you didn't snore all night when you monitored yourself, funny Ryan! You always crack me up!!

Hmmm, not so much a font of wisdom...more like needing to get out on the road, i.e. too much time on my hands! LOL

I figured as long as a concensus for sleeping was being gathered and examined, I just couldn't resist chiming in.

sorta tried it

We like the head of bed at the rear of trailer for reading. The pillows and shams as great cushions and twin aircraft-style reading lights combine for superb reading before sleep.

On the other hand, when we "nap" with feet toward rear of trailer we don't bump into the overhead roof locker and we it find easier to exit bed crawling forward. And I like the idea of more arm room.

But, the tv/clock stand is at the opposite end of bed from the reading lights. If we sleep heads toward front of trailer we will be under the tv/clock stand. And, climbing outta bed in mid-night is easier if only climbing over her feet.

She Only Takes Half...

Sally takes her half of the bed...out of the middle.....

She also believes in the "One Good Turn" philosphy...

"One Good Turn Gets All The Covers" that is.....
