I am a convert to Bailey Unicorn and have a Valencia which we love. Of course it has a near side bed and so there is always the problem of nighttime bathroom visits by the person sleeping on the inside. Ah a transverse Island bed in the Vigo. That will solve the problem. But it won't because when the bed is fully extended at night you can't get around the bottom of it, as clearly explained in your review. So whoever is sleeping on the kitchen side still has to clamber over the poor sod on the bathroom side at night. So what's the point. Seriously, is it me?

No Mel, your not alone, we have the side bed in our Coachman, SWMBO, just jabs me, I sit up, dogs attack me thinking its walkies time, send them back to bed, The boss goes back to bed, decides she can't sleep reads her kindle, until she drops asleep and then, drops it on my head. Love is bliss.
Anyway, previous Coachman , 545, island bed. Nice but kept getting the duvet wet, forgetting to put it onto the bed , before coming out of the shower.

We also have a Bailey Unicorn but, like Mel, opted for the Valencia. The island bed is nice but as already said slightly pointless as you can't get round it when extended anyway so for us the bigger seating area at the front in the Valencia was the better option.
Have to say though I do love her - she really is a home from home and can't wait until we next go away !

That's why we have a 2 berth with long beds at the front, used as singles. ;) No climbing over each other at night, well not for quite a few years now. :blush:

Glad my wife does not often need the toilet at night. When she does she manages to wake me up and slides across the bottom of the bed taking the bottom sheet with her. Still when she gets back it is her that has to sleep on the exposed bed. We have found a king size flat sheet stays in place far better that a standard flat or fitted sheet though so use that.

End Island bed , each to their own side to go too the loo mid bathroom facilities. There is no disturbance in this layout and if one stays up after the wife has gone to bed , there's no disturbances going to the loo . I do understand everyone's preferences, but I still can't get My head around quite a lot of people insisting on the end washroom. Each to there own though
