Default Re: Corner Bed vs Sofa Bed pros & cons

Does anyone know where I can get a couch for the back of my coach? It's a 2007 Leisure craft Freedom 2 serenity. The previous owner took it out and put a full bed in it.

There is a storage compartment which runs across the width of the unit on the rear of the unit.

As well as being accessible from the outside of the unit, it is also accessible from the inside of the unit. Access from the inside is by removing the seat cushion from the head of the bed and lifting the hinged panel underneath. Very convenient for storing all the bedding.

The rear storage compartment can’t be used for bedding, it’s for golf bags! :-)

May regret it latter but we are going with the sofa bed on our new 2018, what is the favorite thickness for the gel mattress topper and did you get a queen or two twins(for easier storage)

Landsharkman, we use a 3” and sleep in a two-person sleeping bag. We roll them up together, use a bungee cord around the roll, and store the roll in the cabinet below the utility readings cabinet.

We have the electric sofa. You can not store anything under it, because the electric motor and folding mechanism need the space to operate. Anything placed in the way will either be crushed or will damage the mechanism (usually the motor shuts down on overload if there is a jam).

The last foot of the bed (going across to the hallway) can be lowered with the electric motor so you can leave the bed down and still access your rear overhead cabinets. It is not unusual for me to take a power nap in the back while my wife is driving or visa versa. It is just not the full width, but quite adequate for 1 person. I don't really know if the full rear bed option makes it difficult (or not) to get to the rear overhead storage, but I would check into that before deciding which option to order.

My wife and I generally do not sleep together in the back. I prefer converting the dinette table to the front bed and enjoying the privacy (yes we are older folks and a little restless in our sleep) :).

There will be room in the storage compartment under the sofa or bed for collapsed fishing poles... and if not there, in the rear storage unit.

Where do you find fitted sheets for the corner bed?

You can buy fitted sheets that are custom made. My wife just got a Queen, as the bed is very long. The wall side is where we keep the extra sheet bulk. There are even garters you can get that hold the extra fabric. The flat sheet is a Full as you don't wanna have all that extra fabric to deal with.

Corner beds are VERY common in RVs so you could probably find them, the Serenity bed is 54" x 80" long. Good luck, let us know what you end up with.
