Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

Re Re: help me plan my new trailer.....
Another last minute change to make. Reading lamps now to be switched to the fridge side. The shorter opening by the stove and the fridge light issue just enlightened me. Window opening is also preferred
Laptop is my TV and table extension is on both bed walls so no issue there.

Thanks!

Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

We sleep with heads on the fridge side in our 19-- when the alarm goes off, I can turn on the furnace and water heater without even sitting up. Makes getting out of bed a few (or more) minutes later much more comfy.

Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

Bruce, what is this alarm thing you speak of? That is something not on our camping list.

Though, I am one of those early risers anyway. Just love mornings.

Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

When I had our 19ft we slept on the stove side. It was a good place to set my breathing machine during the night. We do not carry an alarm clock with us camping.

I bought a cheap multipurpose clock at Radio Shack, includes alarm clock function -- the bed's comfy enough that I need it to wake me up in the morning.

We sleep with our heads on the passenger side. Seems less confined than next to the fridge wall. Further away from the water pump, heater and fridge noises. Eyeglasses convenient to stash next to stove. Can open emergency window without handle sticking out at our heads.

Hi: All...Another plus for the 5.0!!! There's only one place to put your head and that's on the pillow. Alf

Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

Amirie, I'm wondering how you modified the 19 to sleep north south?

Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

We have a 17B--so we have the extension put between the fridge and sink area and it stops well before the bathroom door.(and a few inches before the furnace--so no worry about heat and tucked in blankets)
I don't think it would work as well in the 19 because isn't the bathroom nearer the bed area?

Re: Where in bed do you put your head?

The 19 has the bed near the fridge, then there is the closet, then the bathroom. Other end of the bed is next to the stove.
