Re: Congrats are in order...

Wow thanks guys... I already have bunks in the bus, so that's no problem. Our first room in the hospital had this cool couch/bed thing that I really want to put in the bus. I wish I could find a picture of one of them. Basically it's a long couch that you can pull the back of the couch over the bottom and it makes a very nice twin size bed. We're staying another night in the hospital tonight, if I see another one I'll take a few pictures of it.

Here's a funny picture, I scanned her baby picture and my baby picture side by side.



I think she looks just like me.

She was 8lbs 6oz. and 21" long, she's completely healthy. About an hour after she was born she garfed down a full bottle in the recovery room. They said we could come home today but my girlfriend is still pretty sore and wanted to stay another night.

Thanks again for all the comments guys.

Re: Congrats are in order...

she does look like you

are you talking about a Futon?

from this to this


they come in all kind of different sizes and frames, Wooden, metal etc.
Some are easier adaptable to RV needs then others. Best is go to IKEA or similar place and try them out.
Look for space needed to lay them flat. Some you litteraly have to pull forward and then lay them down where others (the one you want for RV) the main frame legs stay in the same place and the matress part slides forward. (need about 4-6" clearence to wall) This type you could fasten to the floor for safety reason.

Congats. I'm very happy for you two (+1). Enjoy the time while they're growing up because it happens fast. Mine just turned 21 and is in her last year of college.

Re: Congrats are in order...

OK I got some pictures of that fold up bed/couch thing, it's not like a regular futon. I guess these pictures can explain how it works better than I can.

Here it sets as a couch:








Seconds later it's a bed:


Some rooms have these built in, so they can be mounted flush to the wall. I looked allover it for a tag or a plate to see what it's called or who makes them but I couldn't find anything. I'd really like to get one for my bus.

I also posted a video of it in action.

Re: Congrats are in order...

yes, that looks like a sweet couch, futon thingy ma ding. Let us know what you can find out about it. Probably very expensive special made for the hospital. Ask them they might have some that are due for replacement.
