I love all these 32' units with their walk-around queen beds, but I'm not enthusiastic about their length. So I'm wondering how you feel about...okay, I'll say it--being "stuffed" into your corner bed in a shorter coach? Is it a constant hassle to make up? Do you use sleeping bags? Where do you get bedding?

Couldn't pay me to sleep in one. The View/Navion 24J has the corner bed.

Our 24V has twins, that can be made into a queen, and the 24G has a partial walk around queen that slides out to the rear. They aren't making it any more. The 24D has a fold up/down Murphy bed that some say they like. We didn't want a full wall slide with the 24M, and didn't like the 24G rear slide out, so our only choice was the 24V.

All of these options are in a 25'8" long coach.

Corner bed is fine if you get a Superbag, from RVSuperbag. We have two for our View 24J with corner bed and overhead. Expensive, but we love them.

Had a corner bed and the only thing we didn't like much was making the bed. We now have twins beds and we like the set up much better.

My RV is 28'5" and has a walk around bed. I prefer it to a corner bed--but it does waste valuable space, too.

My ideal class C would have a murphy bed.

We had a rig with a corner bed; never liked it. Hard to make up. Had to climb in and out of bed in order or crawl over the other person. Too short.

We’d never do it again for two people. If I was traveling alone it would be okay (but still undesirable).

We had a Winnebago Class A Via with a corner bed. My wife had troubles making it up so I did it. No biggie...I sat on the bed and pulled the farthest top side of the mattress up and put the bottom sheet on, then got off the bed and put the other two closest corners on.

We did quit using top sheets about then and each of us used a blanket. We still don’t use a top sheet in our 5th wheel, just one large blanket on top.

Been living with a corner bed for 8 years now. You get used to it. My wife takes the outside, as she never needs to make a potty trip in the middl e of the night, and I always do, so I'm on the inside next to the bathroom wall.

I make it; not that hard. We use regular sheet sets, and the trick is to start at the head end, get one corner in, then physically pull up the other mattress end corner, while kneeling in the center, slipping the sheet over the entire head end, then back off the bed, reaching over to do the outside bottom corner, then the inside bottom corner last, right in front of you while standing. This is with a thick innerspring pillow top Serta too; foam would be even easier with the same technique. It helps that both of us like loose covers above us, so then it's just throwing a top sheet on, along with an appropriate number of blankets/quilts for the weather. We just throw the pillows up to the head end.

I'll bet a lot of how many people feel about the corner bed.....depends on their age.
