    Those of you who have king bunk ends. Who sleeps across and who sleeps lenght way (head at bunk end and feet at box end). I sleep across and we get tired of jumping over each other so thinking of going long ways. Just curious who does what.

    We started sleeping across but got tired of crawling over each others, so now we sleep with head at bunk end.

    I'm pretty tall so we sleep across since it has a few more inches for my legs and feet. My wife is a hundred pounds soaking wet so jumping over me isn't a problem if I hit the hay first. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Smile">

    Well I'll be darned. I ain't considered this before!

    Can this be done on a Queen sized bunk? I think that's what we have now. 66x80 anyhow.

    Well, maybe not. I'm darn near 6 foot tall, and my feet still hit the side canvas in the bunk. Rats!

    I sleep length-wise because at six feet in length, I don't feel comfortable sleeping across. My DW is gifted height-wise (in other ways!!!) is can be easily stepped over. However, the children have ONLY slept across. Usually we stack three children across on the King bunk end and the wife and I snuggle on the Queen bunk end. Now with the new baby, we may have to use the U-dinette just so that the DW can feed the new one and we can pen him in so he doesn't role out of the PU between the bunk end frame and the canvas!!!

    We sleep lenght wise. Makes life easier, seeing as I am usually the last to go to bed.

    I am also 6 foot but we sleep lengthwise. Even though the bunk is wider if you sleep across, its easier this way for us to get out of the bunk. I admit my feet hang off occasionally but no big deal.

    Since there are only the 3 of us. My DH takes 1 bunk, I take the other and DD sleeps in the dinette area. We sleep any way we want !

    We did get new sleeping bags last summer. Usually we sleep together :) with them zipped together. When we used them separately this last time camping we realized that they are "long, narrow". Never noticed when we were cuddling. Not as comfortable to spread out alone. DH suggested I get 2 more of the same sleeping bags and then we each will have 2 zipped together for our own big bed. Obviously, we don't do sheets/covers.

    I am 6'2" so DW and I sleep across on our bunk. The Jayco Laurel has 2 king beds, and the kids sleep lengthwise on their end.

    DH and I slept length-wise from the start. Easier to get in and out, we each have a side window flap to adjust to our liking, and the wall of the toilet is at my feet...not by my head as it would be if we were sleeping across. Length-wise lets us both get the full benefit from the A/C and/or fan, too.

    We sleep with feet at box end. Much easier to get out if needed. We used to sleet the other way until a popup portal discussion enlightened us.

    Hmmmm, if I chopped my head or my feet off I could maybe fit crossways on the double beds. Brings to mind that Dr. Seuss story book "Hop on Pop". There is one page in that story with a very tall fellow in a very small bed and either his lower legs are sticking out, or his head is hanging over the end of the bed.

    I never thought about sleeping the with head at the one end. It would make my life easier and DH wouldn't have to jump over me to let the dog out in the morning. DH 6'4 so he might not like it much but that means more spooning! which he will like. Thanks for the great sleeping tip!

    We sleep head at bunk end, feet at box end. We've tried the cross way routine and this is easier!

    We sleep side to side. 1 because I'm always last to bed and 1st up so dw doesn't have to crawl over me. 2 If she does have to get up in the middle of the night for a potty break I have to walk with her anyway. We don't use the potty in the pup unless it's an emergency or we are boondocking.
