Default twin beds

We have been looking at later model 27T and 2808c, love the front kitchen, and noticed they had a twin bed option in the bedroom. Does anyone have one of these? Also if you have either of these models what is the width of the bedroom? I am handy and could remove the queen bed and build the support for twin beds.

Thanks

We have a 2008 2808c and had it total refurbished.
what we did was i had the guy remove the queen bed and also the night stand that was over the hot water heater and he made 2 beds the opposite way. I also had him make it high enough and we put an outside kitchen in the right rear of the camper. We also put hinges on the plywood to access the area under the bed but also can access it from the storage on the left side.
just remember not to make it to high so it does not hit when lowers.
We also went to a mattress store and bought a queen and a double mattress made out of foam of the same brand or firmness you might say and I used a saws all and a 12 inch blade that 'I ground down to make like a knife. This bed is as comfortable as one in a house.
Just might want to look at the demission's I have as he made it with the width shown I believe and it was just to narrow between the beds so I and another guy cut the larger one down some and I recut the mattress. You will have to cut the queen both ways length and width and the other one just the width and then I used what I cut off the narrow one and cut it the width of the narrow one and used a mattress cover it to fill in the length as it was to short.
Now to top it all off I had a lip made along side the bed and I have plywood that can be laid on it and the foam I cut off the larger one can be laid in the space between the 2 and now you have 1 large bed.

Very nice thanks for the showing me what you did and how it was accomplished. Did you have to move the wardrobe? If not how much space is between the end of the queen bed and the wardrobe? Easy access to it?

Thanks,

Paul

no the wardrobe is where it was and there is maybe an inch or 2 between the end of the bed and it. We access it from the top as the top opens up and no problem but also still can access it from the front if we need to as the doors slide. The only thing with ours is the Air conditioner cord is on the far end of the wardrobe and you get on the bed to plug it in and i saw one other one that was not plugged in there but in the kitchen dinning area. Really not a problem for us and I would not worry about it. Same with the cupboards above and the rear.
i believe the pictures of the beds was before we cut off a few inches of the larger one after it was made. I could give you the correct demission's but right now the camper is not available for me to do that.
like the other person gave you the width of the lower and he is correct and that let me 9 inches between the beds but what happened with that was when the guy made the frame he made it the 30 and 50 inches and that let 9 inches in between but then put an extra nice 1 x ? on the sides of both and along the framing outside for decorations and it made it to close between and that is why I had another guy and myself cut the width of the larger one down some.
What we did was laid on a queen bed side by side to get enough room for 2 people to be comfortable and then measured the bed area needed. the smaller one just made it 30 inches which is plenty for 1 person .
What we like about ours is the bed room that do not have to flip a couch each day.
Now one other thing ( which I had designed several things with this camper and it is one of a kind and really more than I am saying here ) anyway the bath room . I did not like the idea if someone wanted to take a shower or using the commode you cannot get to the bedroom . So what I did was I installed a track from amazon DartAnt Heavy Duty Flexible Ceiling Curtain Track - Room Divider Ceiling Track for Curtains, RV Curtain Track, Shower Rod Curtain Rail Ceiling Mount, Bendable Hospital Curtain Track System (16.4ft/5m) with a no see though white curtain between the commode / small storage and the walk way next to the sink.
I added a couple pictures and might be hard to see but the layout one shows a red half circle and that is where the curtain is. the other 2 is showing the curtain open and closed.
We had a 21 t and just for the information the T model is a cheaper built one and then we bought a 23 C and then this one the 28 C . The C model is a better grade.
After the camper was restored I went to a truck stop and dropped it on the scale and attached is the scale slip with camper empty but I had the new heavier mattress in it and propane tanks full.
we used a 1999 Chevy 1500 for the first 2 campers and then bought a 2016 Chevy diesel before sold the 23 C . no problem with any.
