Nope, there is a space of about 6 to 8" on either side of the bed....never measured it.

Hi: All... We always traveled with a bag chair stored on either side of the bed in our 5.0. The 5.0TA has even more room along the edge of the mattress and a bit at each end. The sleep is still the same... better than at home!!! Alf

Hummm, that makes the picture out of the 5.0 brochure deceiving, doesn't it? One more reason to view a trailer if possible before purchasing.

Of course, when we had a Scamp 19 with the side to side bed, being able to roll up against the wall in the bed area made maximum use of that space.
That 5.0 bed area is what we like also, gives lots of room to shift around and flail.

I did discover, when testing one out, that you need to put some sort of thick pillow/cushion behind you if you sit up to read in bed. I like to do that for a short bit before going to sleep (but not for hours on end, which I would do in a u-shaped dinette). Otherwise you have to learn forward a bit or not sit up as high due to the curvature of the trailer up there.

Good thing there's room on both sides of the bed to stash something like that.
