I would avoid the new Jay Feather 7 models that are only 7' wide; those bunks don't work for tall people. Stick to the classic full wide models. I do find the mattress in ours to be a little thicker and more comfortable than the pup mattress; I used to bottom out on that one.[/QUOTE]

Still learning here, I just realized the difference of the Jay Feather 7 and the wider Jay Feather. Does anyone know the listed size of the bunk in the 8 foot wide Feather? Is it 60 x 75 as mentioned earlier?

I'M 6'2" and if it wasn't for the fact I have to roll over the DW in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, this trailer would be perfect, because the beds are out of the living area.

This is the main reason we might be looking at a unit with a real walk-around bed, especially at 65 years old.

We have a x17z ( it's an 8' wide model) and no problem for DH & I. He is 6'4" and sleeps side to sides next to the window, so he does have to technically crawl over me to go to the bathroom, however, since I'm 5'5" and sleep with bent legs, he actually doesn't climb over me at all and has enough space to get out at the bottom of the bunk without waking me up.

Yup, that is the correct size for the full width Jay Feather bunks.
