Newbie with bed questions

Our 2014 Flagstaff T12DDST is due to arrive in a week or two and my DH and I are super excited. I have a couple questions about the bed situation. Do most of you with the dinette setup use a mattress topper or are the cushions comfortable enough? Also, we are used to sleeping on a queen sized bed and I'm wondering if the narrower width will present a problem with feeling cramped.

Depends on what type of queen you have. Our Rockwood 2604WS has a standard queen. It is the same width but 75 or 76 inches long. There is also a 3/4 queen that is narrow and short

A standard queen bed measures 60 by 80 inches. In an RV this size is called a short queen. RVs also have a three-quarter queen, which is 48 by 75 inches, and a queen short, measuring 60 by 75 inches.

So, hopefully you have the short..

Congrats on the rig. The coushions should be pretty good (we used our dinette in the last TT and they were ok)... Might be best to try the before you buy a topper - no sense spending $ if they are comfy.

Do moderators edit replies? I replied to this thread but it seems to be modified and info was added. Or maybe I am having a senior moment but...

FWIW, anyone can edit their own post for a limited time period if you see an error or want to add additional information. The risk is, if someone has already posted after you, their response may seem strange if you've changed or added info.

The floor plan for our model says the bed size is 54 X 80. I'm not sure how much we will miss those extra 6 inches

I have the A128S 2012 which has the same configuration as yours. I did 6 trips last season, after sleeping on the seat cushion 12 nights camping, tossing and turning, I was hoping to get use to the stiffness, I gave up and got an air mattress. The next 6 nights sleep were perfect. Since I put all the heavy stuff on rear side, the topper is too bulky to fold but the air mattress folds very compact, something to consider.

Do you know what new things they have added/change in the 2014 model? Well the bed size has not changed

We chose to remove the pads (ours was a sofa not dinette) and put in a foam mattress. Then, since the sofa was used only as a bed, we also removed the back shelf thingie. It held the back seat pad forward of the roof slope. I sleep on the back side and removing the shelf gives me more space to turn over and settle down without banging my knees or elbows.

You're likely to find other changes for customizing your new camper to suit your needs.

The air mattress sounds like a good idea - what size did you get?

I know the upholstery is different and the door window is bigger. There may be other changes that I don't remember (info overload at the time).
