Red face Tea in bed

My wife and I enjoy a cuppa in bed every morning, but our new Escape 21' does not have any shelving at the side of the bed to put our cups on! This was almost a deal breaker but we figured someone has already addressed this major problem! Can anyone help us?

Hi: Peter Westfall... We had the same issues with "Cracker's"!!! At least with the 5.0TA there's a few inches on either side of the mattress where the floor is open. Alf

My question is how do you even make it while in bed? I must assume you just go back to bed to drink your tea?

I enjoy my morning coffee outside of the weather is half decent, otherwise I sit at the table and enjoy the view.

Could you not do a drop down shelf on the bath wall. The window side would be tougher. Bed tables maybe?

I had the bath wall reinforced, enables one to hang things where needed, not necessarily limited at the studs.

What about a small freestanding tray that you can also use for breakfast in bed?
