Now I need to decide if I want to modify the corners to fit the rear bedroom of the trailer. I'm really on the fence. It would be nice to have a regular queen and not have to deal with shaving the corners on the mattress and the frame... and having sheets that don't quite fit right.
Pictures of the corner of the ikea unit are attached.
The bed fits either way but being able to move it back a few extra inches would make the bed end just before the hatch doors on either side toward the front of the bedroom. A little nightstand would fit nicely in those spots, backing right up to the hatch on the outside.
But on the other hand, it doesn't really matter where the doors are as the platform under the bed will likely extend to cover them. So the full area underneath will be contiguous. I will still have room for a narrow ledge/nightstand on each side above the hatches if I push the bed forward, plus that would leave space for a 6 inch or so ledge all the way across the backside.
Still, a third option is having a walk around bed. I'm just remembering that is possible right now so now I need to go play around with a measuring tape to see if I would prefer that. My inclination is that I don't want to do that as the back and probably street side hatch would be useless as they'd open into the walk space.
