We have a walk around bed but even that can be a bear to make at times. I solved the problem by making what we call "people cases". Take 2 flat sheets and put them right sides together. Sew across the bottom and about a foot up each side. Flip to right sides out and away you go. Nice cotton or fleece sheets that go on the bed like a sleeping bag would. Top with a blanket and sleep tight.

Corner Bed

We were told our Salem Cruise Lite had a queen short mattress. After measuring and throwing it out after our Florida trip, I decided to replace it, but couldn't find a 60"x72". It had to be this size in order for my wife to pass thru to get to her side of the bed! What I found out was the mattresses Forest River are using for this trailer is for a fold-out couch, which is why it is thin, flexible and very uncomfortable.

Just traded in my Class C for a Class A. The uncomfortable, hard to get in and out of, body contortions required to make corner bed was one of the reasons. Love my new walk around bed!

Because we have a corner bed, our rig can be smaller - 25 feet in our case. We don't need extra length or a slide (don't like them) to accommodate the width to walk around three sides. For us, small size is more important than an easy to make bed.

We move around a lot and don't pull a toad so we need to be able to fit into a normal parking space at a trail head or state park parking lot.

The time may come when we won't want to put up with the corner bed, but for now, its our friend.
Only as a solo traveler do I like my corner bed. Agreed; I love my 24 footer; easy parking and no need for a toad; easy to be spontaneous- most importantly.

I like our corner bed as it saves space. I admit it's a bit like dressing a greased pig to get the sheets changed tho. Have even pulled the mattress on to the floor to change mattress pad and sheets!

Happy Camping!

Non-standard sized mattresses can be ordered. ProCustomInc in Elkhart ordered my non-standard queen (60"W x 76"L instead of the standard 60" x 80") from Indiana Bedding Co. It's a SUPER comfortable thick foam mattress. WAY better than the skimpy Serta mattress that Dynamax installed.

I'm sure you can find other custom mattress manufacturers with an online search.
