    Sorry if this has been asked before, but how many of you here (adults) sleep in the bed over the cab, and how do you find it?

    Always have done and love it.. So does my son and his wife in their van, and my daughter and her hubby in theirs :Smile:

    I used to find it a tad hard ( basically cos I am a fat git I think ) so bought me a memory foam topper and put it UNDER the existing mattress. It is VERY comfy now and as the topper is under the other mattress I do not suffer with it all getting too hot ( a problem with memory foam )

    Excellent. H U G E bed. And the convenience it's always ready for use. Downside is it's not possible to read in bed or use position 127.

    Used to when we first went Fulltime in our '87 Elddis Autostratus EK.

    Good point - Keeps the rest of the 'van clear and allows one of you to get up and mooch about "downstairs" whilst the other has a lie in.........now i wonder which one of us that was likely to be!:Cool:

    Bad points - can get VERY stuffy up thier unless you have at least an opening window if not a roof vent.
    also..........
    you can FORGET any bedroom gymnastics!:Eeek::Rofl1:

    We do and the cab bed is bigger than the one we have at home. We are both slim/med build and are 5ft 10/11 if that helps:Smile:

    Our daughter is the one who sleeps up top and she loves it because she so much space. Graham and I then sleep separately downstairs which is wonderful because he can snore as much as he likes without me kicking or shouting at him and I dont hear him :BigGrin: I would sleep up top but should I need the toilet in the night, and especially if we've been on the wine, I dont fancy falling down the ladder.

    Ours has a fan.

    I knocked the switch and before I scream "O W W W W W W W" I had the best shaved anus in the country.

    The 'upstairs' in the Miller is so big I can almost sit up straight in it, so no probs for me ! ( except perhaps nowadays she sleeps in the bunk at the back and I sleep alone up there !! )

    It's all in the little finger !!!

    How did I find it !!!!!......It's at the top of the ladder !!!!:Rofl1: :Rofl1: :Rofl1:
    As to position 127....If you just bend the little finger of your left hand (not the right)
    to 136 degrees, then the stars will shine for you..shaved bum and all !!..:Rofl1:

    I sleep in the overcab bed, its great. When we trawled the two kids around with us they both slept up there together and they loved it.

    Geo and Brian are having their own discussion !!!!! :Eek!:

    Tried it before handing it over to our 9 year old.
    First few times he slept on the sofa whilst we had the overcab, however at 6 1/2 ft and nearly 17st its not exactly roomy, and I ended up hanging legs over edge so I wasn't curled up all night.
    Much prefer putting the sofas together and the little one loves the overcab so all happy now!

    :Cool: We have slept in the Overcab Bed on many occasion in our Commuter. Even watched DVD via Laptop up there. However, we now have a permanent Bed over the Garage. So the O/Cab bed is used as storage. :thumb:

    I always had the inside in case SWMBO needed to get to the loo in the night and this caused a bit of a difficulty when I went to bed after SWMBO. Getting over the top without waking her was "interesting".
