Nice rig!  Looks comfy.  I like the permanent beds and it looks like you have loads of inside storage space.  Is it 25 feet long?  I always enjoy seeing another non-slide floor plan idea.  Good job, and enjoy your maiden voyage!

Length spec is 24' 11" to 25' 1" on 170" wb E350.  Without a slide should be adequate CCC for us.  Deleted subwoofer to make a doggie den for Freckles.  Chris got a fan above bed and small cabinet above bath window.  Wardrobe has 4 drawers and looks wider but counter and cabinets adjacent door had to be narrower to make room for captain's chair.

Interesting!

I wonder if you could order one of the beds with a special thinner memory foam mattress, the same used in dinette seats base cushions, and have special backrest & side cushions to make it a couch/day-bed.  This way you have a nice place to sit and relax during the day with a huge ottoman across.  When it's bed time, simply toss those cushions up front.

Just a thought for a low cost option.

Ron, had similar thoughts.  Chris wants permanent beds.  I offered to have mattresses upholstered but will have to try her way.  Can still use during day with some pillows.  Kyle is checking feasibility of a pedestal table between passenger seat and 3rd chair, not same height so more pillows.

You will find that sitting on a mattress is going to be very uncomfortable compared to leather covered memory foam dinette base cushion material.  You will be fighting it with every move you make.   Our dinette initially had cloth-covered standard foam which would be better than sitting on a regular mattress.  That had issues we resolved by replacing the cushions with leather covered memory foam cushions.  Laying on our dinette setup as a bed is quite comfortable for me who appreciates a tight firm mattress.  But if you love a soft cradling mattress, then the mem-foam will be an issue.

I suppose you could always order it later, but then it gets complicated and expensive.  Your best deal will be right now before you take delivery.
