Twin beds

Is there enough width in a skoolie to place 2 twin beds in place of the queen/king at the rear. My wife is disabled and can not do the climb over she wants room to walk between the beds

Prob depends on your build. My inside is 90 inches wide. Beds are 39 so that leaves a foot between if no added width on the walls

You could build beds to suit your size and needs and then cut some foam bedding to size.

You could stagger them across the width.....a 75" twin would leave you a theoretical 15" to access the rear bed.

Or consider bunks?

Last week I bought a twin bed-in-a-box. Was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it is.

I had custom mattresses made each 2 inches narrower than a standard twin. That gave me just enough space to move comfortably between the beds in the rear. I did add 3-1/2” of wall thickness total to the rear sides. That was both sides together.
