I have a Clipper 16B that I got for me to camp in with friends who have their own TTs. When I settled on this floor plan I thought I would sleep in the bottom bunk and leave the dinette set up. For those of you not familiar with this floor plan here it is:
Well it turns out I am a little claustrophobic and couldn't sleep in the lower bunk. I have never had a problem sleeping anywhere in my life but would wake up feeling like I couldn't breath in the middle of the night. I would move to the dinette and all would be fine.
I was determined to sleep in the bunk so I decided to do a little trimming to the top bunk. After a couple of emails with Connie Burkett at Coachmen to see if it was OK to do what I wanted to do I went for it. I cut the front half of the top bunk out to open up the bottom bunk.
Before image I copied off of the web:
As you can see it opened thing up. I kept the back half for storage, I think it worked out OK and I sleep great there now and can also sit up in bed. I also made a curtain for the window because I got tired of hitting the mini blind while sleeping. Another bonus is I have the mattress from the top bunk on top of the one for the bottom bunk, extra cushy now. I took the pics before my bed was completely made so sorry about that, clean sheets, blankets were still in the dryer.
I know I may have hurt the resale value a bit but I will probably have this camper for many years so having it work for me is much more important.
