One thing. Is this for fulltiming or weekending? One person or two? The reason I ask is because climbing across another person to get in/out of bed gets really old, really fast when you have to do it day in, day out. Especially if you have the flu and you are the one having to climb over someone to make a semi fast desperate dash for the bathroom. We disliked it so much that we put an island bed in our bus. After 5 years of climbing over, I decided to "fix" that problem. I'm too old to continue doing that.
My goal is to fulltime, with just myself (for now).
I am interested in procuring a dog-nosed bus for the exact reasons to mentioned - increased floorspace, and two less wheel wells to deal with. Plus, dog-nosed buses are easier to work on and quieter inside, as I understand it. If I do end up finding a flat-faced bus that I love, I will need to adjust this design accordingly.
Your point about the position of the bed is a good one, and one I had not considered.Though I am single now, if I were to find Ms. Right, I would rather not have to remodel the bedroom to make it more functional. I am going to revise my design using your suggestions. Thank you!
