Campervan Bed Layout Options - Which One’s Right for You?

< back

If you’re looking for a great camper insurance quote, then Stuart Insurance can most certainly help. However, we’re also interested in helping people to better understand the camper van experience and how to get the very most out of it. 

In this blog, we look at campervan bed layouts, so that you can determine which one is best for your needs. So, sit back and we’ll take you through a few of the options.

Type #1 - Transverse Beds - The first type we look at is usually found in larger motorhomes, as they’re quite spacious and are usually located at the top of the vehicle. It’s quite a comfortable option, however, one person needs to climb over the other to get in and out and it’s not always possible to sit up whilst in bed.

Type #2 - Convertible Beds - Next we look at pull out beds that exist as chairs and sofas during the day. This is an option that’s suited to smaller campers and is a popular choice for those with limited space. Some even have second beds that sit in the pop-up roof if the camper has one.

Type #3 - Dropdown beds - Typically found above a seating area, a drop-down bed is one that provides more living space during the daytime and a comfy place to sleep at night. They can also either be single or doubles depending on the campervan they’re in.

Type #4 - Fixed Beds - If you’ve got the space for a fixed bed, then you’ll experience perhaps the most comfortable and home-like sleeping experience - especially as it allows for a thicker mattress. You’ll normally only find this option in a larger campervan that’s closer to the US type of RV.
