Had never heard that...... that's a good one!

Yep, lots of reasons to like the twin beds.

One that hasn't been mentioned is that there's more useful standing room in back for changing clothes, which is important to us since we're sometimes involved in theatrical/reenactment work when traveling and use the trailer as a green room.

Don't you married people enjoy sleeping with each other? I think I'll kill myself before I step back into "leave it to beaver" land.

Nothing finer than a good dinner, campfire, bourbon, and then........

It's a tradeoff. Both of us can fit together in one twin bed for a while and that's how the night usually starts. If it's just the two of us traveling we sometimes sleep on the gaucho.

Like the sofas, the dinette is tolerable for about 15 minutes (enough to eat a meal!). Much beyond that, I'm crying out for something a lot more comfortable when it come to relaxing for an afternoon or an evening.

We've been trying to decide where our Golden Lab will have a bed in our 30' International. Not much floor space beyond where one walks in an Airstream. We're starting to think we'll remove the dinette table (when we're not using it for something) and give him a bed space there.

I think it would be really neat for AS to sell the trailers with modular interiors. One thing I struggle with in my AS is office space and sitting area. Perhaps if there was some sort of twin convertible desk option for one bed (twin model) and a modified L lounge/recliner in the front room, all would be perfect! If they added an extra folding privacy screen in the kitchen, then the bathroom could be extended into the hall when used- this of course in reference to center bath models.

Actually, with my bad back I love putting my feet up on the sofa and watching the TV. And on the other side, if you open the storage drawer under the seat and put the cushion that goes on the wall under the TV on top of the drawer, you get two comfortable sofas for watching the TV.

Our dog - medium sized - 65lb border collie likes to sleep under the dinette table - staying out from under our feet.

Yes, that seems like an ideal spot in an Airstream, for a pup that can fit under there. Harley is just under 100 lbs., so it would be a little tight for him, but we're going to give it a go.

Hi everyone! We have twins. Beds. I not only don't like the sleeping arrangements but I do not sleep well. The beds are just too narrow. 30 in just does not get it. I had to take sleeping pills to sleep. Every night. We put a foam topper on both twin beds. That helped my hubby but not me. Here we are now in our "other" camper up north with a king bed and bingo, I don't need sleeping pills at all. We put a foam topper on this bed too. I also don't like the storage drawers underneath the beds. Hard to open (they stick) mildew problems, bending over to get in them. In the Fall, we are going to tear out the twins and put in a queen. I need my sleep.

have to agree sunnysideup. my sweetie and i have shared the same bed for our entire married lives. we like it that way so enjoy the queen in our 25'FB. i can see this as a problem for some of increased girth or perhaps limited mobility, but those sorts of limitations do not impact us. there is just something reassuring about reaching out at night and making contact with your partner. we use the big storage tubs in advance, and bring them out to the trailer as we prepare to leave on the next adventure, very handy. the lack of outside storage doors with the queen arrangement is not of concern as we tow with a PU which has unlimited space for 'stuff'.

We are shopping for our first Airstream and I have a total Noob question:

Could the twins be converted into a larger bed ("queen") with a platform bridge and additional cushion, akin to converting the dinette into a bed? Just contemplating flexibility.

Not easily as the night stand would have to be removed to make that work.

in my trailer the night stand drawer section looks like it could be removed leaving just the base. it might be worth looking into doing that.
