1a. any tricks to easily changing bedding on a corner bed. I have watched the videos and considered getting a topper and slipping a narrow fitted sheet on that part and not the mattress itself. Or getting a zip fitted sheet. What are the real life experiences with a corner bed?
1b. Are the wall cabinets in the corner bed area useful?
2. are slides more of a pain than they are worth? One dealer suggested to make sure there was no weight on the bed when moving the slide in and out and that would avoid many of the problems.
3. Aside from the standard features and the LE Premier Pkg, what additional factory or aftermarket options should I seriously consider eg auto levelers? stabilizers? etc. etc.
4. Can anyone recommend (with personal knowledge) a FR dealer in Southwest Florida? I have been to one dealer but the salesperson was not knowledgeable.
5. What sort of price difference should there be between a new 2020 or 2021 model?
Just returned from a trip in my Sunseeker 2290S with corner bed. After our first trip last year I purchased a stretch bottom sheet. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I skipped the top sheet and purchased this quilt in twin size https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
To put on the stretch sheet start at the top corner by the outside wall then the bottom corner by the wall. Then to the top inside corner and finish on the bottom. The sheet does not bunch or move around once on. I bought a twin quilt and it fits well without struggle to tuck and is better than the original spread plus not as hot.
If you go with a topper try a duvet cover but try a size smaller than the topper. For our upper bunk I had a full topper and purchased a full duvet cover. It was a little big but I made it work. I also purchased another twin quilt.
The upper cabinets I don’t store much, extra toilet paper, extra towels. It would be a good place to put occasionally used items. Use plastic bins in all upper cabinets.
For the size unit you are looking at you probably won’t find levelers. We haven’t needed them. Stabilizers yes yes yes. My husband installed better stabilizers after our first trip. It handled the road much better and trucks passing didn’t blow you off the road. fR should put better ones in from the start.
