Class B RVs with a (mostly) fixed bed

Campervans with fixed/permanent beds

I’ve been surprised to learn that there really are very few campervan layouts where there is a dedicated permanent bed.

Almost all Class B manufacturers ensure that there is at least some multi-function with the bed space; where you can lift up part of the bed to access storage space or create a garage.

Benefits of a fixed bed

It seems that there are two, quite well defined, camps when it comes to whether your campervan should have a permanent bed or not.

I’m firmly in the camp that does want a permanent bed.

Don’t have to make your bed, if you don’t want to – personally, I’m not totally against making up the bed each day. But my husband and I have quite different sleeping schedules so I’ll want to go to bed (and get up) much earlier than him. So having the living space and the sleeping space in the same spot, wouldn’t really work for us.
I also like the idea of being able to have a nap in the middle of the day!

More comfortable mattress – if you’re not having to move/make up the bed every day, you can get a more comfortable mattress. You don’t have to concede to only having a foam mattress or a jigsaw of cushions all fitted together.

Larger cargo/storage space underneath – for the active among us, a fixed bed may allow them to use the space under the bed as a ‘garage’ for bikes or other gear.

Looking for the perfect camper van?

It can be a bit overwhelming trying to find the campervan/Class B that best suits your needs.

So we’ve created a spreadsheet with ALL the campervans that can be bought new in the USA.

It includes the exterior dimensions, interior height, base price, seating and bed layout, bathroom, solar and air conditioning/heating; with links to each one model.

Class Bs with permanent beds

Following is a list of all the Class B RVs (that we could find) that have a permanent bed.

Double bed at the rear of the van

Coachmen RV Galleria 24A

The bed in the 24A model is one of those half twin, half double bed scenarios. Personally, I like this type of setup because each person can get in and out of bed without having to scoot all the way up to the foot of the bed.

Entegra Launch 19Y

With the flares out the side of this van, you’ve now got a bed long enough to accommodate most of us tall folks.

But of course, it is still a multi-functional space so you can lift up the bed (using the power lift) to access the garage below.

Winnebago Solis 59P & 59PX

The Solis 59P is a pop top van that has sleeping quarters in the loft, but just looking at the ‘downstairs’ sleeping area there is a bed platform at the rear, that can be lifted up to access the garage area below.

The 59PX floor plan is the same layout on an extended wheelbase which adds a small garage space at the back of the van, that allows for the storage of bikes and other things.

Winnebago Revel 44E

I love how the bed can be raised up to the roof when you need to use the space below; so you can just leave all your bedding on there.

Winnebago Travato 59G & 59GL

The 59G and 59GL have the same layout, but the GL includes an upgraded lithium battery system.

Single beds at the rear of the van

Single beds, are actually more practical in a van, in my opinion.

No one has to climb over another person to get in / out of bed.

Each bed can easily be used as a seating area and you can even leave the table up each night, if you want.

Single beds with bathroom in the rear

By having two single beds, it means that you have the benefit of a dining area AND beds, without having to do a big assembly and disassembly of the bed every day. 

And it also allows for the bathroom to be across the back of the van (making for a bigger space) and having easy access for each person.

I think this would be perfect for friends traveling together or a couple that don’t have a need to be in the same bed.

The Dazzle, Twist, Sequence & Tellaro, all by Thor Motor Coach, have the same layout with the twin beds with the wet bath in the rear of the van.

What’s the difference between the Thor Dazzle/Twist and Sequence/Tellaro? According to the Thor website, it’s just about the interior styling.

The ‘L’ in this case, refers to an upgraded lithium system.
