Not much to add here as so many great points have been covered. We have the center queen bed now and had twins before. I like them both very much. I don't know which I actually prefer. There are tradeoffs with any configuration.
In the twin bed I had a problem of where to fling and stretch my arms out as the night stand and curvature seemed to dictate range of motion. We took care of the cold walls of cold weather camping by getting heated mattress pads that can run on electric or 12 volt
. The easily accessable and ample storage was great and elongating the hallway and having a day use area and spacious dressing room was great as is the wide exterior storage door and compartment. The night stand can be very useful to place a lamp or whatever. If it weren't for the nightstand you could slide the twins together at night and replace that with a fold-down table for day use?
The queen is a real luxury of space to use and to take up walk room permanently. It has the bonus of having a center window for viewing (hopefully out
) and ventilation at your head. The room feels spacious without the extra overhead cabinetry at the end of the twins and over the window and gives you a better place to put a tv monitor. You can hide stuff on either side and visitors wont see it from the front of the coach.
Or you can use that space to secure extra or bulky things easily for travel without stopping you from getting to the bed on the road. You can change your orientation for sleeping to sideways or head to foot. You can sleep two adults and two dogs and a cat together, but do you really want to?
The pets seem to like a center bed for looking down the hall and out the window.
