Need purchase advice for snorer

Ok, maybe this is a dumb or strange question. I snore very loudly (claims my wife) and she can't sleep at all next to me. At home we have separate bedroom arrangements which work really well for both (yes we've been married happily for 20+ years). We want to buy a travel trailer, the smaller the better. A TT with sofabed doesn't work because I'm tall and wouldn't fit on there so my wife would always be relegated to the sofabed; she doesn't like that. Also where I sleep and where she sleeps can't be right next to each other with only a wall in between (I'm too loud). A bathroom (or enough space) in between would provide enough noise proofing.

As I said the smaller the better. I see ones with bunkhouses that might work (eg Windjammer 3008), but they're all at least 27-30 ft range. Is there anything smaller that might work given our restrictions? Is there some option I'm not considering? Getting a new wife is not an option. (Costs much more and more inconvenience than the biggest trailers.). We can't be the only couple with this problem.

Thanks.

Ear plugs are cheap. My FIL is the same way, it's crazy how loud one can snore.

Snoring is dangerous. Take a sleep study. You may need a c-pap machine . It will stop the snoring.

I agree. I am an Inpatient Pharmacist with Obstructive Sleep Apnea treated with CPAP. Snoring (sleep apnea) not only reduces your quality (fatigue/drowsiness) of life but it also predisposes you to heart failure.

I'll third the sleep study. My blood oxygen level got down to 70% with 84 apnea events an hour and it caused me to have a heart arythemia. The cpap looks silly, but you get over that quickly.

Reggie White the football player died of arythemia caused by sleep apnea.

My wife has that problem. Snores so loud nobody could sleep. Did a sleep study and now she wears a mouth guard when sleeping. Been peaceful for 6 months now.

I can't agree MORE get a sleep study done Snoring can be very dangerous to your health. See a doctor real soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As said before if you need a CPAP machine your snoring will stop...... My wife sleeps much better since I got one. You & her will sleep much better if that is what you need. & will help your health....... don't put it off.

Cpap works great for me, I have two one at the house and one I keep in the RV . I have the 12 volt cigarette style plug in the RV for dry camping and the 110 volt house hold style when hooked up .

Snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea. I resisted for years. When I fell asleep at the wheel at 10:00 AM I gave in and am glad I did. It is a dangerous thing and I know you don't hear yourself snore. I sleep through the night now.
