Don Keller of East Acres RV in Mendon MA says he "exclusively" offers a single bed in the area over the front cab, available on any model.  The factory in Elkhart makes it up special for his customers.  The TV is hung on the wall between the passenger seat and the entry door.

If anyone has that option, could you post them here?  I am very curious.  That would make for an ideal arrangement for a 3rd person (or even pets), so the living area could be left alone for early risers or late to-bed-ers.

Sounds a lot like the mini-bed we had on our previous unit, a Great West Classic supreme. Full size bed, but onyl 18" of headroom... Good only for kids who didn't try to sit up in the middle of night.
BUT... made for a great storage area. We could put a ton of stuff up there.

Don told me he had a special order request once for a single cab-over bed, and he worked it out with the factory.  I guess that is what he meant by "It's a factory modification".

Maybe he thought you were asking him to modify a unit you already had.  I can't imagine doing a conversion after the fact.  The cab's roof is cut out during construction for easy pass through.  Reconstructing an existing PC for a cab-over bed would require a lot of messing around, but easy to accomodate during the birth of the RV.

I think you're right, Ron. From my understanding, it would have to be ordered and then done at the factory during construction.
