haha, mine also. We have the Trump series mattress and the wife wants one for the house now. I figure if the bed in the 320 is that much nicer it'd give us a reason to stay in it more.
As for the drawers, every other one I've seen has them. Except mine. I pm'd Christopher Columbus and asked him. We'll see I guess.

I have never seen ant with the king size bed, I am thinking that maybe the king size boes not come with the drawers because of the longer length. Believe me the drawers are small any way, we keep our central vacuum hose in one and fireworks in the other.

Could be I guess. I'm loving the amount of cabinets in the living area, just wish there were more in the bedroom. But I guess with the washer and dryer we don't have to worry about packing so many clothes.

I believe I read that there was an issue with the bed slide and the drawers were removed from the design as part of the slide fix.

The drawers disappeared when FR switched to the actuator slide system.

If you have the Schwintek system, you have the drawers, if you have the newer version, with the actuator and rollers, no drawers.

Ah, thanks for clearing it up. I have the new style then. Hopefully that's a good thing since I lost the drawers. They should update their website.

Thanks Wildcat. I couldn't quite remember the details, but was pretty sure I had read it somewhere. Sadly, we won't have the drawers either, but at least we'll have the slide fix.

Christopher Columbus replied to a PM I sent him. The drawers were lost due to the upgraded motor for the bedroom slide. However we do have under bed storage accessed by raising the bed which models with the drawers did not have. If I can get the two folding chairs in there I'll be happy as they take up alot of space in the closet.

Does anyone know if there is any additional storage room under the bed that can be accessed? We have the newer version with no drawers. But only half the bed is available for storage. Has anyone had it apart yet to see what is under there? Was thinking of putting some secret storage in there somewhere...

Christopher Columbus just told me that the motor for the slide is located under there somewhere which is why they did away with the drawers. I'm offshore right now and don't have access to mine but I'm wondering if the folding chairs will fit under the bed.

This is the message that was sent.

As an ongoing product improvement program we changed the bed slide system. This unfortunately eliminated the 2 drawers but does give you a storage area under the bed equal to the drawers. We didn't have that under bed storage before
The new motor sits in a such a way that it became impossible to keep the drawers.
Good news is that you have the new improved motor slide out system.
Thanks
Chris
