    Hi one and all!

    I've just bought a VW Gatcombe, 4 berth, two of which are above the front of the vehicle...as you all know.

    What I want to know, for sure...because I dont want to damage my new baby.....is, can adults sleep up there or is it just for children??? especially for MY make of vehicle???

    We had an Autosleeper Executive, also had a Talisman both had beds above drivers seat, they are supposed to sleep adults, although we never have as not a lot of room and prefered making the double bed up, they usually have nets so you dont fall out.

    We got fed up making the bed up so now have a Hymer with a pull down bed, much better.

    Hi

    We had a Talisman and if we could not be bothered to make the double bed, I used to sleep above the cab but would not think there would be room for two to sleep in comfort.

    Hi Boogie

    I've had a couple of Autosleepers and personally found the overcab bed a bit too confined for comfort so I make up the settee bed, takes about two or three minutes so it's no big deal, unless you are fulltiming when it can get to be a bit of a chore I imagine.
    I always used the overcab area as storage for the bedding and light bulky stuff.

    If you log on to the Autosleeper Owners Forum (ASOF) you may well find more positive feedback to your questions regarding your Autosleeper Motorhome.:BigGrin:

    Cheers John
