I've noticed that as Northwood Manufacturing redesigns their RV's they update to the residential size queen beds.

TCM just posted an interview with the Bigfoot RV president about some changes to their 2500 series. Looks good BUT.......

From what I see, none of their models- 2500 and 1500 TCs and their travel trailers have a (sleeping) bed longer than 74".

The single exception is their longest TT that has 80" Lucy and Ricky singles. That would be a big [emoticon] hit with SWMBO.

What gives? I am 1" longer than their beds and I will not sleep with my feet dangling.

Is everyone else getting shorter?

True. Wait a few years and you'll fit fine ib those bigfoots. [emoticon]

Stick 4 inches of foam at the top of the mattress and your good to go. I wear 4E wide shoes, hard to find. That's life get over it.

Have you asked Bigfoot what the actual length of the bed support is. Maybe you can fit in a longer mattress.

On our 5th wheel, the wife wanted a better mattress. We bought a longer one than was original. I extended the bed support at the foot.

On our TC we installed a smaller mattress and push it toward the foot. It's probably a 74". There's probably 6" at the head we fill with a couple of swim noodles to keep it in place.
