Yes, misleading names for bed sizes are a common problem in the RV industry; I used the layout names ("Rear Queen" is the 25B25RQ and "Front Bed" is the 25B25FB), but didn't explain that.

A bed which runs across a trailer without a slide-out is unlikely to be queen length, because the trailer body would need to be the maximum legal width (2.6 m or 102") to leave a reasonable space to walk around; running along the trailer length (like Bigfoot's FB layout) is just as bad because the 60" width is 20" less, but an extra side aisle needs all of that. I just checked with Bigfoot, and they say the FB layout (longitudinal bed in front) has the same size of bed as the RQ (transverse bed in back).
