Just purchased burstner solano T725 with island bed collecting on 29th can't wait.
But as Russell says they do encrouch a bit and with ours leaves little or no work space to kitchen but I think er in doors will get over it, if not will have to live on pot noodle
Hiya we had a lovely twin axle caravan with the new island bed (Crusador Cyclone) and we really loved it, we decided though due to several factors to change to a MH and fell in love with the Swift Bolero, although it isn't a island bed it is a fixed side bed and we find Hubby can slip out of bed without disturbing me due to the way the corner is cut off.

Hi Briarose- How the???? does he manage that? My other half isn't exactly elephant size but she manages to knock me about twice a night on her "comfort breaks". Add my twice-a-nights (yes we're that age ) and it's four disturbances. She's refused to agree to a swop of positions.
So- I'm seriously looking at Island Beds-BUT there is a considerable compromise on lounge and/or bathroom space on all those I've seen. So, my preferred option is the Fleurette (discussed in other threrads-but the twin-bedded, rear bathroom optiomn.
RCF: Fleurette do an Island Bed.
BTW- anyone interested in a corner, Fixed Bed Lunar Champ- ideal for those who can quietly hop over their partner without disturbing them?

One of the things we checked on our new van before we bought it!
We've got the cutoff on the left side (as you're lying on it), which is great because that's where Annie normally sleeps. There is some space at the end of the bed (only partly covered by the fridge/freezer), which means I can shuffle down the bed and off the end without disturbing Annie.
I know this is maybe a bit too much information but it's an important issue, especially when I've been drinking lager

Fleurette are a nice van, we were tempted to buy one of them, the only dealer is in Portsmouth, we phoned them to see if they had one in stock, were assured they had and after driving over 70 miles out of our way they did not have the said model.Have divided thoughts about this dealer.but nothing to substantiate these thoughts.maybe a second visit would be best.
