    We have spent the day at the Motorhome show at NEC. So very many motorhomes have those fixed beds with a triangle cut out where the short person would normally put their feet.

    I can't imagine how anybody would be comfortable with that restriction but I must be wrong.

    Personally, we have an EXSIS with a big bed for me and the girlfriend in the roof and a double bed below for the wife.

    Sadly, I sleep alone in the roof; just like to keep my wife on her toes.

    Sounds like a variation on the biscuit tin contraception method to me

    I am afraid when god handed out willies I thought he said Tillies.. thought while a lamp might be useful in life it was a bit big to carry around all the time, so asked for a small one....

    On a completely different subject - does anyone think those fixed beds with a triangle cut out at the bottom of one side are silly?

    Yes. I have one... I still have to tuck everything under it but in a triangle shape so it is lumpy and still looks odd.

    I suppose it depends how many are in the bed!!! Mine has a cut away corner but as I am the only one in it there is no problem.

    .... me too ... and I suppose for those with more than one the longest ones go where the cut out is.. and risk cold feet.

    We have one and I sleep on the cutout side. I don't find it a problem , the mattress is very comfortable and I always sleep well.
    Last night we slept on the bigger double bed at the front. More room but not as comfortable. I still slept like a log.
