  1. Just out of curiosity, do most people sleep with their head at the tail gate end or their feet that end ? For the record , we sleep with our feet at the tail gate , don’t know why , just do . Thank you and good night

  4. Head to tail gate - you crawl in head first from the centre of the bus and it's too much of an effort to then turn round and then at get up time turn round again - unless of course you get in via the rear hatch .

    Usually head at the tailgate but if I’m too hot I sleep feet at the tailgate as it’s draughtier by the slidy door.

    Head at tailgate…. The rock n roll bed droops slightly and that is uncomfortable!

    Feet to tailgate for us. I'm reasonably flexible (for a 70+ year old) and could crawl under the headbanger cupboard to get my head at the tailgate but to then get into the sleeping bag would be a challenge. And it would probably be time to get up by the time I'd managed it. So much easier to just get into bed where there is plenty of headroom - and I can simply reach up to turn the heater on in the morning to get the van toasty before we get up. :thumbsup:

    Full width bed, by the way. And there are no drafts from the sliding door.

    With Flakey on this. It’s just easier to get in head first. As one who is approaching over a certain age, I will usually take the path of least resistance which is head first as I know I’m gonna have one or two pit stops in the middle of the night for the usual reasons. At the tailgate end I have a suspended and elasticated cargo net that will have several bags of crisps in or more, this serves as an early warning system for getting up, if I get up with toooo much of a start, I’ll hit them crisps with my head before I hit the roof. With a little practice, I can actually get up and do anything that needs doing without disrobing fully from the quilt of warmth and luxury ;)

    Feet to tailgate. It’s a pain getting in and out, pillows can fall off, but that headbanger locker got it’s name for a reason!

    Head at the tailgate end, with the tailgate open about 2”.

  19. Exactly the same for the same reason - plus our headbanger has the table top stored underneath it so has a nice 4 inch pole poking downwards, you wouldnt want to sit up suddenly in the dark with that above you....
