Question for you "Twin Bed" people

How many of y'all, when explaining to people why you bought a twin bed floorplan, started out by saying "We've been married XX years and ..."?

Why do you feel a need to explain anything?

I'd say that is how the Airstream came, and MYOB...

That said, I made sure that I built my Airstream with a queen bed.

We never felt the need to explain or justify why we got twin beds!

Why ask

Just polite? I keep getting asked the question. In fact, I've asked other people with Twins the question. But you've got a point: NYB is a good response.

But I'm asking y'all the question because everyone who I've talked to when we were trying to decide on twins started out by saying, "My wife and I have been married XX years..."

We just answer that we have more bed space. floor space, and outside storage compared to the Queen bed. Not to mention the trailer looks much larger. Most people agree once they look at it.

...and I add that when we were first married all we had was a twin bed for a few years. Synchronized breathing. And somehow ended up parents. Still looking for a root cause...

We like the extra hallway and light of the twin bed layout. A twin bed fit us in college, and still does

We got twins because I am 6-2 and my feet hung off of every trailer "Queen" bed I lay down on. Twins are 3" longer.

Added benefit: because our Classic 30 has several unused inches at the foot of the beds, we used that, gave up a couple of inches of aisle, and replaced the mattresses with Sleep Number extended twins, each essentially half of a king-size bed. But it also does have more storage, and it looks larger looking down the aisle.

Tell them about the 70's disco ball at the other end of the trailer and collapsible telescoping hot tub under the center floor boards and they will forget all about why they give a hoot about twin beds...
