5.0 TA bed size

Considering a 5.0TA and wonder what the bed dimensions are. Hoping it's a real queen size and 60x80. Thanks.

It's the real queen at 60x80, or I wouldn't have bought one.

On edit: it feels a few inches shorter as the front wall is pitched back.

Bob,
My mattress is a bit forward, leaving a small gap between it and the wall. I like this because it allows some ventilation and my CPAP hose fits down there. But it also gives my full use of my mattress.

Pete,
It's not only a fully sized queen, it's also a very comfortable mattress (IMO).

We do the same but with a 3" latex topper, which I forgot about. It'd feel a little bigger without the topper.

And if you love your foam king, with a little electric knife work and some tailoring on the cover, it fits fine with 3-4” gaps on the side as well!

Thank you for posting this reply with pictures, I was wondering if I could fit a twin size bed sideways and it looks like the answer to that is yes.

I sleep on a twin, but still leave it front to back, but pushed over to the drivers side. One of the faults of the Scamp loft with the front bath is the bed ran side-to-side which mean head in one window, feet in the other. It's liable to be the same if you turn the bed in an Escape.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll definitely keep that in mind if I do get the 5.0. It's looking like it may not be the best option with my TV (king pin weight would probably be closer to the payload capacity than I would prefer).

Ya we’re really happy with the mattress as well, and we also scooted it down an inch for ventilation at the head of it.
