We are considering the front bed extension but concerned abput the space it takes when not in use. Does anyone have a photo and/or measurements? I believe it sits infron of the camp table so the walkway may be tiny with it.

Thank you in advance 😁

Its just a section of 150mm Aluminium added to the 'hallway' area. Doesn't interfere too much - (Its 150mm)
Pretty basic, just the aluminium RHS with some hinges so it flips up and over the bench when not in use.

Hi I am looking at 490 (2010 model) for us as a family but was disappoint to find the front bed is really (really) short.  Is there a neat solution to fix this, if so does any one have photos?

Thanks for the suggestion but I am also in need of 2 singles for the kids.  They would be able to share now but not sure for how much longer.

Hi ccdio, yeh looked at one today I think if it wasn't for the bed I would tried to convince my wife to place an offer.  Haven't written if off probably will go back for another look specifically to try and workout bedding configuration.  Thanks for the info though I am just over 180 my self.

I'm 6'4.5" (194.5 cm) and comfortably fit on the bed with my wife (5'10) when asleep. My feet do hang over when flat on my back, but when on my side the feet are on the bed.

Should also mention my eldest son (16yo) is 6'4" and sleeps on the single bed in the dining area. We do have it made up with the table lowered as my 10yo (5'1") sleeps on the other side without trouble.

We slept with this arrangement for 8 months as we travelled around Australia.

A lot of people panic when trying the beds because they lay bolt straight in their back - in reality that's not how most of us sleep.

Cheers

Anthony

Hi William,
Really appreciate the info.  Maybe I am just soft but I slept in the back of the ute a number of times wich is about 180cm and to be honest quite disliked the fact that I couldn't stretch out.  Now that I said that there is probably a difference in the bed being short but still having your feet able to hang off the end. 

I still have a bit of convincing to do.  [wink]  Hoping to be able to find one to rent maybe.

Robert

Hi,
this is the extension on my 490 as factory (Aust) fitted from new, I have since removed it as even when folded up it does consume walk way space, the front mattress had a same shape extension zipped on which I have since also "unzipped"

hope this gives you some food for thought

here is a couple of other pics that I've pinched from a face book group of a different 490 bed extension 28059498_10157324045374129_8132810944355267139_n.jpg  28166283_10157324045444129_4537745970047755435_n.jpg
