Please research Villa double trundle bed Born Free RV. They have a double trundle bed that splits in the middle, turns into a large QUEEN size bed in several of their models, which you can recline separately. I will find another video to put on here. They also have a cabinet which is present in the video above, that is small and narrow that takes up little space (is somewhat similar to your 24M model but smaller) and ALSO pops out a table. They really utilize maximum space in their small RVs with incredible comfort, and I am hoping Forest River or others jump on board and research what Born Free is doing and do it in a more affordable way than they are. I think you will have a home run.

We talked about doing it armless...either widening the seats and removing the arms or trying to squeeze 3 armless recliners in there. But it is WAY more comfortable to have the arm rests.
The Born Frees are large and turn into Queen size beds. They are Villa Double trundle beds.

Go to around the 6:00 section and they say the make and show the trundle recliner sofa queen size bed. This model is 60 inches length possibly you can still have the middle section or have it lay flatter with cup holders, there are several options. I wrote to Born Free bc now I am curious about the size of all the trundle beds for the different models. I know one thing, it turns into a queen bed, is extremely comfortable as I sat in one. Also look at the cabinet they use that has a pop up TV and pop out table. Really utilize space in an extremely efficient and beautiful way. Comfortable chairs, or you can get without chairs and just have a jackknife sofa in some of their models.

Just an observation (don't mean to offend anyone)...I'm trying to understand the main purpose of this thread. It seems like an encouragement to Forest River to make their product like someone else's. What's the point? I purchased a FR product because I liked it better than several other manufacturer's products. I purchased it on a Chevy chassis because I like that better. Others like the Ford better--that's their choice. I would never consider asking Chevy to make their chassis more like the Ford. If I wanted a Ford I would have bought one.

I know that FR is open to suggestions and their (unofficial) rep here (Brian) always receives the suggestions graciously. I'm just not sure we should be encouraging FR to make their MH like someone else's. I like mine the way it is.

We had high hopes for FR bc they were getting close to this floor plan with the 24M which we almost bought. Given that Born Free is selling on Ford and Chevy chasis, not even a diesel, for well over $150,000 to $200,000 I think possibly they are on to something here! We are giving suggestions bc we cannot find the perfect one for us yet. That is why. We go to ALL The largest RV shows, go to all the RV dealers, we have been an owner of a 25 ft B+RV for 15 years which they don't make anymore, want to upgrade, so we learned what works in a small RV and know what we are looking for. Unfortunately Born Free's are too expensive or that would be the one. The Born Free's are doing a wonderful job with the smaller floor plan RVs, that was all I was saying. I absolutely believe any company that could replicate Born Free's ideas in a more affordable price would really be onto something that would benefit them and the consumer. Otherwise why would BF be able to sell those RVs at such a high price. I meant no offense and it would make a nice option as Solera was fairly close to their setup.
