New Member with bed size discussion issues...
Greetings from Alaska. We are considering buying a FR Rockwood TT. Probably will order new, but might buy used if we can find what we want. Were looking for 30-35footer, twin chairs on the well windowed living end with bath next to the bedroom. The Windjammer 3001W has floated to the top of our current list. My adorable life partner and best friend INSISTS on a king bed. Try as I might to inform her that in the 30-35ft class a king will be next to impossible, she hasn’t budged on the issue. I called the FS factory rep and spoke with them about the issue. Our thinking was to remove the nightstands and have the bed frame customized to a king on some of Rockwood models we have been looking at. Turns out there is plumbing and wiring under the nightstands. That solution is not a solution. He suggested the 3001W as the bed is in a slide and the nightstands could be removed. My concern is that a person would be unable to actually walk into the bedroom as the bed would come all the way to the wall at the bedroom entrance door. Anyone have a thought on that possibility?
Anyone else gone through the bed size “discussions” with their partner? Any magic bed mods (number system beds, temperwhaterever mattress) that might solve our (her) concerns?
Also…. On most of these models I’m making a guess that when the dinette/sofa slide is retracted a person would NOT be able to get to the refrigerator on a road trip (lunch cold drinks etc). Is that true?
We are leaning very heavily toward the Rockwood line after a few months of gathering info. We still plan on doing a RV show or two to walk through as many models as we can and take notes before we start shopping for a dealer. Thanks for any help here.
