I considered a queen until I realized how much lost space there would be. Very happy with a full sized bed.

I have a King bed in my room at home, I only use the first 2' of one side.

Yeah, In a short bus its certainly a third of the bus. I’m contemplating a bankette (sp?) setup or a futon-ish thing.

If anyone’s got photos of good setups like that, please post.

Thanks

Then I remembered that I'm not into transvestites...
Single guy: twin-sized, &/or Strata-Lounger does fine for me.

We're planning to have a 'futonish' setup in a SB that allows for an isle down the middle of two very plush bench seats, but a queen-sized landscape when extended. Wifey's implementing that plan, though, so I'm not sure of the details.

Our full size futon dominated the space in our short bus. Fortunately it was also a sofa.

In the WanderLounge it's just a sofa, and there's a queen size bed in the other room.

Every inch matters.
