We've happily taken ownership of an adria matrix 590sg. We've got pull out deeps to get into bed when the bed is at its lowest but would prefer to leave it high so we don't have to remove the headrests. There's plenty of headroom when the bed is high, but the ladder doesn't reach? It's a 5 rung ladder - which seems pretty standard. Should we have been supplied with a longer ladder or are we missing something 🤔 🤔

First pic is where we'd like the bed to be - but second pic is where it has to be for ladder to reach cushions and headrests removed. Do others have a ladder longer than 5 rungs?

Ah,thought you were talking about the front seats,can't find any pictures of 590s with headrests like that I'm afraid 🤔 When fully down does the bed rest on stops which I would think it should,rather than hang on the straps.

Sorry - I didn't explain properly 😆. It's an electric bed so stops wherever we want it. The straps are just for the safety nets. I can't find the spec for the original ladder. The dealer supplied a new ladder. They don't seem inclined to swap it but it's pretty redundant as when the bed is low enough for it to be useable, the pull out steps from the side cabinet can be used. Also, at that height, the lower bed is unusable We may just have to buy a new ladder.
Thank you though rb62 😊

No, the ladder only reaches when the bed is fully lowered. I think it's only supposed to be used when fully lowered as well so it is necessary to remove the headrests

Is the bed not lowered/raised with straps?

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
We have removed the headrests on the dining room seats permanently. They are stored safely in sealed plastic containers at home that has allowed me to make a shelf across the top of the seats, which is a really useful addition

How have you fixed it ? And does your drop down still lower to its proper position to be able to use it ?

Really? Hmmmm - that's not what the dealer told us. That leaves very little headroom for the lower bed....we thought we could drop it to any height?

Do you really want a longer ladder? At 3am, needing a toilet visit, sleepy, too easy to tumble down.... just a thought...:unsure:
Yes that's a thought- but I don't really want to be removing the headrests every night- and they need to be there to hold the back cushion in place.

The bed should not be used in “your preferred position” to sleep in. It should be dropped completely onto the stops.

following on from my earlier post #15
Using the bed as you suggested will put a strain on the actuators with the risk of stripping the threaded drive mechanism.

Presumably those seats are not used for passengers when travelling?

presumably ....

yes the bed drops to its lowest position - it doesnt interfere with the bed at all. its fixed using threaded rods which engage with the headrest securing fixings. that allows us to have the shelf at a higher level if we wish - i wanted to add a second tier but was over ruled

That's useful information- and would make sense in terms of anyone sleeping underneath. It's worrying that during handover, dealers say that you can stop it wherever. Looking at videos online say the same. Thank you guys - I think the answer is remove headrests, use ladder - let the grandchildren crawl into a safe space below😀

The seatbacjs should stay in place with velcro if not fit some new velcro patches. Seatbelts can also hold it in place if you slip the backrest under them rather than tucked behind.

You can have headrests and a shelf. 😀

The idea of a shelf is great but i would have to round that corner off otherwise i'd walk into it every time i passed .
Also how do you remove the headrests with the shelf covering the release catches ?

Good question 😀 Slide it up to give access to the clips. I haven't hit the corner. The bulkhead comes out a bit further than the shelf.
