Got it once I saw that I just needed to pull it came right out. But it's hard to get the cushions to lie flat they want to pop up. I'm going to get a topper for it so my guest will be comfortable is it twin sized?

It's 30.5" wide, narrower than a twin so twin sheets will work. I find the size quite comfortable but if your guest is claustrophobic it won't work because of the wardrobe and shower walls. I joke with friends that there's no way I can fall out of bed now

What is that quote about making it too comfortable for your guests to where they do not want to leave??

We also ordered the Springfield gas powered single pedestal. We feel it will be easier to move the table top up and down, and be able to use it down for a lounge area with a "cocktail" table.
We will bring it with us and ETI said they would install it at orientation!
SO thankful for this forum and all the great ideas we have gotten from some pretty terrific people!

I'm assuming the pedestal is removable for when you want to make it into a bed. What sort of base? Is it flush to the floor or does it stick up and get in the way of your feet?

There are quite a few threads discussing it. Use the search function above and type in either pedestal or springfield in the google search window. Here's one of the threads showing my install:

SpringField Marine Pedestal - and a few more mods

The base is permanently attached to the floor, but it has a low profile. Instead of two tubes you now only have one, and it's centered, so there is more foot room. To raise or lower you flip the levers and it telescopes. Night and day compared to the clunky poles and floor sockets.

We leave TN 30 June to pick up TA. The pedestal is already in the truck ready to make the trip.

Another advantage, IMO, is the ability to rotate the table 360 degrees making it easier to slide into the bench seats. If I weren't considering making the front a permanite bed I'd put one up there too.

Definitely. The rotation is a huge plus.

Dick & Joanne,
So excited for you! Safe travels out there! We'll be following you exactly 2 months later! The pedestal is going to be great!
