Thanks much! Janice
We have a 2020 we got in Feb. The two couches fold out to somewhere between a double and queen. They claim queen, and it is closer to queen than not. You can open both of them and there is about 8 inches between them. Enough room to walk sideways between them. We bought a topper as the fold outs are pretty firm.
Also, the mattress that came with ours felt like a cardboard box. It weighs about 15 or 20 pounds and is hard as a rock. Go ahead and start searching for a replacement just in case.
An off the shelf king mattress is a little larger (not a whole lot) than the RV mattress. I went to Home Depot and got two sheets of ply wood and cut them to provide support under the edges that hang off the platform. We don’t use the under the bed storage because with two closets and the “attic” beside the bed (basically over the half bath) we feel like there is plenty of storage. We didn’t make it so we can’t get under the bed, it’s just quite a shore now with the standard mattress.
We love the unit, so much space and the kids sleep in the living room and have their own bath. Outside kitchen is great.
Hope you get as much happiness with yours as we are!
