I may need your help. My wife is convinced she wants a king sized bed. I am convinced I want the towing convenience of a fifth wheel. Problem is there are no small fifth wheels with king sized beds. Though maybe I should be asking how you intend on helping.

Unless you want to get a large trailer that comes with a king size bed, most likely with slide outs, I think a queen size bed is plenty for two. The 19' comes with a queen size bed, which is also a very common size bed in much larger trailers.

When we bought a much needed new mattress for home, we went to a king because we had the room. Well, my side is still less then 2' wide. A goodnight kiss requires a trek across the bed. In hind sight we kinda wished we had of stuck to a queen.

We were just pickled tink when we saw the 19 had a permanent queen bed. We would have settled for a bit narrower, but did not want the 48"(or less) that many others had, like Bigfoot.

When we hit the backcountry, most of our tents allow 2' per person, which is plenty adequate, just not luxurious.

Kev is right, most larger trailers use a queen bed too, a king is a rarity.

Heck, my beauty gets too far away from me in a double bed : - ) The queen in the 5.0 is wonderful. One of the best parts, it goes front to back, which makes it easier to get in and out in the middle of the night.
The new thread on "why a 5.0" should be an interesting one for you.
