Looking for a Flair 8000i with the drop-down bed I noticed a few for sale with cupboards above the cab rather than the bed.

I seem to remember reading a thread about retro-fitting cupboards. Probably more trouble than it's worth but does anyone know if the bed can be retro-fitted, and has anyone tried?

You would probably have to build the bed inside the MH. Next problem will be have they included the wall stiffening for the bed. Be a shame to remove it all and then find out the sides are completely different. Might as well just buy the right one.

I think as above, I know some people have taken them out but don’t know of anybody putting one in.

QFour Wall-stiffening - good point. Sounds like a non-starter then.

Unless anyone knows different... :)

The only way you would know is to ask the factory if there is a difference. As for fitting the bed, the chances are that it goes in before the roof goes on. They are certainly not going to try and wiggle one through the door with all the chances of damage.

jongood Yes to mobile.de.

I just spotted one which looked attractive but lacked the drop-down bed.
